Details

Discover Old San Juan on this amazing driving and walking tour. You will begin your city walking tour with a stroll to the Chapel of Christ the Savior, built in the mid to late 1700s. Alongside the chapel, enjoy Pigeon’s Park, a charming park that is alongside the city wall. Next, you will see La Fortaleza — official residence of the governor — and you’ll visit a local handicrafts shop before coming to the majestic 16th-century San Juan Bautista Cathedral. Continuing on, you will stroll through the beautiful city, past its 17th-century architecture and historical buildings until you reach the famous Columbus Square. Here, you will have a chance to explore and take pictures of the biggest fort built by the Spaniards in the New World, San Cristóbal Castle. After your walk, you will embark on a driving tour that will take you first to the oldest Spanish fort in the New World, Fortress San Felipe Del Morro, built in 1539. From there, you will go into the Ballaja Infantry Barracks Building. Used until 1898 as infantry barracks, it is now home for cultural space and historic conservation. On the second floor is the Museo de las Americas, a notable museum whose exhibits highlight the diverse cultures of the Americas: They include Natives in the Americas, the African Legacy, Conquest and Colonization, and the Popular Arts. After your visit, you’ll head back on your motor coach and drive through the Old City, stopping by the Capitol Building and the Walkway of the Presidents for pictures. Then it’s off to the largest shopping mall in the Caribbean, Plaza Las Americas. The mall is filled with department stores, restaurants and shops featuring a wide variety of famous brands. After exploring the mall, you’ll catch one of the buses and head back to the ship.
