I went to the cemetery in Old San Juan to see how people were buried here about the sea level.... The sculptures were outstanding.... Some of the grave site are starting to deteriorate due to the salt air....

Wonderful site that holds the remains of many illustrious Puertorricans, by the ocean. Not to be missed, for its historic significance, it's architecture and location.

The view is absolutely unique. The monuments and flags overlooking the ocean are very beautiful. We did not walk through La Perla to enter the cemetery as that was not recommended by the guide book.

Visited the cemetery from above. There is a "kite park" and you can see the cemetery from above and take beautiful pictures. I did not visit the actual cemetery. The view from above is just amazing.

Gorgeous statues and vistas!! It is a perfect thing to do before/after El Morro and San Cristobal! Beautiful and eerie at the same time!

This is a really nice cemetery set on the shore of the island. It is free, and you can spend as much time as you want.

Yes it is a short walk from the terminal, however when we arrived by cruise ship, there was a shuttle bus that would take you to old town and the walk is only about 5 minutes.
