The San Juan Cemetery is located next to the Castillo de San Cristobal. The cemetery is located within walking distance of the cruise terminal. However, it is uphill walking. The cemetery is beautiful. It is located along the ocean.

Beautiful statues that withstood the hurricane. We only saw a few that were damaged and people were there repairing them. There is a little door that will take you down to a rocky area to view the ocean. There is a building with a restroom...More

Yes it is a short walk from the terminal, however when we arrived by cruise ship, there was a shuttle bus that would take you to old town and the walk is only about 5 minutes.
