Glad we went! Walked from cruise Port, $7 adults, our 11 yr old was free. Took longer than expected to walk around and we still didn't see every area. So windy, was cool to see kids flying kites on the grass.

Size, scale, and historical significance make this a worthwhile and must see attraction in Old San Juan.

Well preserved and accessible for a self guided tour. Lots of walking, stairs, and steep ramps. Interesting displays and information areas scattered around the big, ancient fortress. We toured the entire fort in about three hours. Beautiful setting, overlooking the harbor on the tip of...More

As the European powers began colonizing the new world, Puerto Rico was arguably the focal point for controlling the Caribbean. This fort was the centerpiece of the Spanish military/naval presence. The facility is well-preserved, and the quantity and quality of the explanatory signage is excellent,...More

Beautiful scenery with a history. Go for the ranger led tours if possible so that you can get a crash course on the history of the fort.

Spend a beautiful sunny day visiting the El Morris. Possibly the best preserved fortification system in all of the Caribbean’s. The place was clean and the views are awesome. A definition must for history bluffs and first timers to the island.

I took my 15 yr old granddaughter and she was amazed at the history and how cool the views were. It's a lot of walking, but well worth it.

You really don’t need a guide or a translator. Old San Juan is small and can be walked completely without too much effort. Also there are buses that are free and will take you there. If you feel you do need a guide anda... More
