Our tour guide stopped at this location and its very interesting to see, it's a Cemetery so you're just looking and getting the history. I did not like that there are not any fences to protect someone from falling down the lookout point, it's just a safety issue for me .

I walked to San Juan Cemetery from El Morro. It was easy to walk to, when going away from El Morro it is on the left next to the beach, you walk down a street and will find the entrance. The location of this cemetery cannot be beat, right next to the ocean! I felt the cemetery was very nice... More

An easy walk from El Morro, this cemetery is very cool. You could easily spend a couple of hours there if you want, right on the beach and connected to the Santa Rosa Battery of Castillo El Morro. If you enjoy looking at tombstones and the like, this is a must for you.

This cemetery is located between the forts near the shore in old San Juan. The cemetery has an amazing amount of history.

Beautiful stones and unique statues make this an interesting stop. We spend an hour + in this area. A long walk from the cruise port or get a cab or tour to drop you off.
