  • This one of the most historical areas in Puerto Rico of the spanish colonization. You can go in and see how the Castillo is and have a great view of the ocean. In this same exact area with have a big field in which we bring our children to fly kites because it's really windy in this area. Bring some water bottles and prepare yourself for a long peaceful walk in the old San Juan area. Really highly recommended to go with kids during day time.
  • Amazing structure that tells battle stories and history of the beginning on the new world. The kids will be amazed of what they will see. Greate place to take Amazing shots with a blue sky touching the sea in the distance. If you are here in a sunny day make sure you a well hydrated, wear hat and have fun. Bring your kids national park passport to get it stamped.
