WOW!! Simply amazing. Throughout the cobblestoned Old San Juan you will find colorful Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks. The massive fortresses of El Morro and La Fortaleza are truly a marvel of the Military Architecture of the day. A must-see for any History-buff. Old...More

Nice old market square and “Casino” and colorful old buildings on a series of streets, and looking up at Al Morro. The shops were generally of the “tourist tacky” variety. Not a lot of great dining options; mostly tourist food, though we did enjoy a...More

I just used google maps and it looks like Old San Juan is about 9 min from Condado Lagoon Villa. When we were there in April we were a little further, but it was really easy to get there via Uber.
