Stroll down the boulevard to the bay

This boulevard by the bay has nice gardens and really comes to life with food and craft stalls on weekends.

Most people do not venture this way but it calming and peaceful place. Take this walk directly to the coast to see ocean crashing directly to sea wall. It is a beautiful tree lined walk with no vendors to harass. Great picture opportunities. the San Juan Gate is nearby as is Puerto Rican tourism center.

The paseo is an easy stroll from the cruise piers. Very pedestrian friendly and mostly level. The fountain at the west end of the paseo is very interesting. The story it represents is explained on stands around the fountain in both English and Spanish. There are numerous places to sit along the paseo and a few sculptures that are worth... More

On Thanksgiving this place was alive with music and every kiosk was open selling crafts and so many different types of foods and piraguas (shaved ice) We went back the next week for bacalaitos and most of the kiosks were closed
