Travel to the northeastern mountains, home of the 28,000 acre Caribbean National Forest. Refered to as "El Yunque" Rainforest.

The most beautiful city in the Caribbean


See the brickstone streets of the old city in all it's splendor. Enjoy shopping at the small shops for jewelry, arts and crafts, clothing and many unique treasures without sales tax. Visit the many plazas and parks with statues of Ponce De Leon and Christopher Columbus all over the city. See the oldest church in Puerto Rico, the capital building and more. Let WTD in PR's expert guides show you the city's most interesting sights.



Overview of Old San Juan



A leisurely walk through Old San Juan is one of the most pleasant experiences anyone could have here in Puerto Rico. The colonial architecture of hanging balconies and cobble stone streets make you feel like you have gone back in time. Here are only some of the nice places to visit in Old San Juan.

La Casita – Here at the Tourist Information Center you can pick up free literature and maps of Puerto Rico for your tour of Old San Juan and all of Puerto Rico. La Casita is located next to Plaza de la Dársena, overlooking San Juan Bay, near Pier 1. Telephones (787) 1709 or (787) 724-4788.

Paseo de la Princesa – A great place to spend weekend afternoons. Local artisans display and sell their work. Also there is live music early Sunday evenings and on many other occasions.

Massive City Wall – Construction of this 42-foot-high wall that surrounded the city began in the 1630s. It is made of solid sandstone blocks and held together with mortar, limestone, sand and water.

La Puerta de San Juan – The San Juan Gate was constructed in 1520. This strong, heavy wooden door was the official entrance for those who came to Puerto Rico on wooden sailing ships during the colonization. Up the block is La Catedral de San Juan where Mass would be held to thank God for allowing them to make the journey.

La Fortaleza – Originally built as a defense fort, this small castle has been utilized as the governor's mansion for centuries. Guided tours Monday through Friday.

La Catedral de San Juan – This beautiful Cathedral, built in 1540 is a good example of Gothic architecture in the New World. Here in a marble tomb lie the remains of Juan Ponce de Leon.

El Morro – Six level castle 140 ft above the sea, overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and San Juan Bay.
