Horrible. Was afraid of walking the streets and most of the people are obnoxious. Not what the travel agency sells.

The Old City today is a charming residential and commercial district, with more than 400 carefully restored 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial buildings. The main attractions include the imposing forts of El Morro and Castello de San Cristóbel, both of which are now administered by the National Parks Service; several plazas, all lined with old buildings, including Plaza de Armas, featuring four 100-year-old statues of the four seasons; and a series of parks, such as Parque de las Palomas, situated on top of the city wall with a magnificent view of the city, ... More harbour, and surrounding mountains.
San Juan boasts a wide array of historic buildings, museums, and cultural centres. The Centro de Bellas Artes is the largest of its kind in the Caribbean, offering concerts, plays and opera. The San Juan cathedral, restored in 1917, is a rare example of medieval architecture in the New World. It contains the tomb of the island’s first governor and the relic of San Pio, a Roman martyr.
Just outside of Old San Juan is the beach and resort area, which includes Condado, Miramar, Ocean Park and Isla Verde. The Casa de los Contrafuertes is a traditional Spanish-style home, dating back to the early 18th century.
The Botánico (Botanical Garden) is located in the Río Piedras. The Botanical Garden displays the native flora of Puerto Rico, with over 200 species of tropical and sub-tropical plants. Another natural beauty is the Piñones Reserve, a sub-tropical forest with mangroves, sea turtle nesting sites and beautiful beaches.

San Juan was founded in 1521 on a small island connected to the mainland of Puerto Rico by a series of bridges and a causeway. The Spanish, in order to protect the transportation of gold and silver to Europe, built here a series of strong fortifications. In 1595 and 1598, and again in 1797, the British attacked the city, and in 1625, the Dutch laid siege, but each time its defences proved too strong.
In 1898, as part of the Spanish-American war, Americans bombed and occupied San Juan and took control of Puerto Rico, which has remained a territory of the United ... More States of America ever since. During the 20th century, the city expanded beyond its old walls to incorporate the greater metropolitan area, and today has three distinct districts: the Old City; the beach and resort area; and other outlying communities including Río Piedras, Hato Rey, Puerta de Tierra, and Santurce.
