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.
Staying five days in an apartment of old San Juan in front of ocean. A lot of targets to see and visit. Each house has it's own color. Prepare to walk, it is the best way to be familiar with the city. History is present...More
The town is very quaint with narrow cobbled streets and old colonial buildings. Loads of shops, bars and restaurants so it can be a bit noisy in the evening. There are two Spanish Forts which are open. We visited Moro which overlooks the sea, very...More

Stay in Old San Juan you'll have everything you need there. You can rent a car from the Sheraton Hotel to do day trips, or what I have done on a couple of occasions is to plan trips to explore the island with an overnight stay in a hotel. Mayaguez or Ricon make good overnight stops on the west coast and maybe Humacao or Ponce if you want to explore the East or South. The Island is not so big that you cannot explore at least half of it in one day and return to OSJ if you prefer.
