There is so much to do in Puerto Rico as a whole, you could be there for weeks exploring every nook and cranny. In Old San Juan alone you could be there for a few days really getting into a little bit of everything. Although I didn’t do that, I was still able to get a nice little smattering that made me want to go back and visit again.
Stepping foot out of the taxi in Old San Juan, we were all immediately smacked in the face with heat and humidity. A beautiful sunny day that felt slightly gross. We spoke with a lady who was sitting out on one of the streets selling tours, but the tours she was offering seemed a bit overpriced so we began walking around exploring. The heat got to us quickly and we learned there was a free trolley that rolled around the entire area, so we hopped on that.
Riding around with a nice breeze and some shade we got to see many of the different highlights of Old San Juan, the colorful buildings, the beautiful ocean, Carmelo Anthony’s basketball court, and more. We also passed by the cruise ships docking in, San Cristobal, and San Felipe Del Morro. Hunger soon struck so we got off and began walking around doing some shopping and decided on a place for lunch.
After lunch we walked around a bit more and then took a spin back on the free trolley. Seeing some other sites we missed before hopping off to eat. Such a beautiful place Old San Juan is. The trolley helped get a bearing on where things were and how far one thing was from another. We got off and roamed around again. It was nice to stop and get some pina coladas while people watching.
After walking around a bit more we were done with Old San Juan for the moment. I would happily go back to see and do more. Old San Juan is beautiful and I loved the sights and sounds of it all.
