We really enjoyed eating outside under the stars. We enjoyed the location in Old San Juan - close to tourist sites, parking and hotels. We really enjoyed the food. Hoping that the confusion on the part of the staff can be attributed to some technological glitch. We made reservations on line; arrived and they didn't have our reservation but they... More

At these place (during the weekends) you'll find so many especial things. Typical food, mavi (you have to try this "alcohol free beer"), art, culture, and sometimes even music and entertainment. It is a place that I always visit when I am in Old San Juan... so don't miss it!

Great area with lots of history to share with the family, perfect for pictures and for a stroll after lunch or dinner at the Old San Juan's restaurants.

This is a beautiful and free (so far only if you buy a "piragua" you need to spend a little) place to visit to see a wonderful sun downing in San Juan. Please dress comfortable to enjoy this walking close to Governor's house and old San Juan wall.

Take a beautiful stroll up to the beautiful Raices fountain and the entrance of San Juan Bay. It's especially lovely at sunset.

A beautiful waterfront walk day or night. The views are formidable and if you love taking picture, you will have lots of fun.

My wife took this walk multiple times during our four days in Old San Juan. It is a very different experience in the evening than during the day and I recommend both!

We visited this area and building and thoroughly recommend that time is spent here. The wide pavements that surround the area are just a good place to be.

This Paseo is a great open walking space to bring your children and pets while you enjoy the bay view and some history
