A special place and magic. Where your activities are perfect for the family and for romance. Where you know the past history of the country. Very good place to be.

This was something we had seen on our tour of Old San Juan. It was pointed out the area of the building where several movie scenes were shot.

Paseo de la princesa is a most do in Old San Juan specially in the afternoons and early evening. Lots of artisans, a couple of bar/restaurants/eateries, and a beautiful fountain and view of the bay at the end.

2 Hour Segway tour will get you to see part of the Old San Juan...that is all, Old San Juan (Where most of the Tour boats dock) is quite big. Segways are easy to handle, so taking pictures should be easy...but, again...Old... More
