WALKING TOUR OF SAN JUAN

The bulk of Old San Juan is contained in an eight-block square area to the north and west of the cruise piers, and there’s far more to see than we have space to catalog. Leaving the pier, we suggest you first visit the tourist office, La Casita, for up-to-date info and maps (see location on inset map above). Afterwards, take a free trolley ride to get your bearings—start with a ride all the way to El Morro and the walk back will be downhill. There’s a $5 per person National Parks fee (children under 16 are free) to explore El Morro and San Cristóbal fortresses, or use your National Parks Annual Pass (for more information on the fortresses, visit http://www.nps.gov/saju). Several major points of interest are clustered near El Morro, including the Plaza del Quinto Centenario, Casa Blanca (the de León family home), the church of San José, the Museum of San Juan, and the Pablo Casals Museum. From there, head south on Cristo St. to the Cathedral of San Juan and east on San Francisco to Plaza de Armas and San Juan’s City Hall. Return to Cristo St. and continue south for serious shopping, and the nearby La Fortaleza, the historic Governor’s mansion—tours are available from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, on the hour. You’ll now be near the city’s southern wall, which you can follow eastward back towards the cruise piers. This walking tour can take from three hours and up, depending on how much time you spend at the old fortresses and other points of interest.
