We stumbled upon this little town square while walking around Old San Juan. It has a nice water fountain with places to eat surrounding it (including Wendy's and Subway). Great place to stop and take a rest.

This is a beautiful park with food and drink opportunities located all around. A natural breeze frequently blows through the park and makes this a very pleasant place to take a rest after a long day in old San Juan.

Lots of pigeons and a few benches, but you had to find an empty spot. Some people had all their belongings there.
