Before you go

Visit Old San Juan

The oldest city in any state or territory of the United States is also our capital. Puerto Rico was first settled by the Spanish in the early 1500s, long before the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock. It's this rich history that makes Old San Juan a true sight to behold. With carefully preserved landmarks, vibrant culture, and kind faces everywhere you look, no visit to Puerto Rico is complete without visiting San Juan.

Old San Juan

With blue cobblestone streets, Old San Juan truly transports visitors to another time. Harking back nearly 500 years, the 7 walled-in blocks are filled with restored colonial architecture, shaded plazas, monuments, forts, famous museums, popular restaurants, and shopping to last for days.

Unique Shopping

The thoroughly American Plaza Las Américas is perfect if you’re looking for things you can find on the mainland. For uniquely Puerto Rican wares, stick to stops along the free Old City Trolley. Caretas, or scary ceremonial masks, are a popular local craft, and the best shop to find them is La Calle. For great coffee, grab some Alto Grande or Finca Cialitos. Other crafts to look out for include santos, or carved figurines of saints, and handmade lace.

  • What are some free things to do in Old San Juan?

    So many of the fun things to do in Old San Juan are free. Start with a ride on the Old City Trolley, get off and trounce around the blue stone streets wherever you feel. If you’re lucky, you can catch live music at Plaza Mercado in the Santure neighborhood. Sometimes you can even find free salsa dancing lessons. The grassy hills around “El Morro” are also a lovely place to catch the sunset, picnic, or even fly a kite.
