Full description

Take in the key sights of the Puerto Rican capital at your own pace on a self-guided walking tour. Listen as your audio guide shares the history of the city and its landmarks, including Castillo de San Cristóbal, Old San Juan, and La Fortaleza. Enjoy the freedom to stop when and where you want.

Start your self-guided tour at Plaza Colón, where you will learn about the history of this beautiful square. Then, head off on an incredible journey through the old streets of the capital. See fantastic examples of architecture, such as the Castillo de San Cristóbal fortress and La Fortaleza.

Then, take in religious landmarks, such as El Catedral de San Juan Bautista and Capilla de Cristo, as you continue your exploration of the Old San Juan Historic District of Puerto Rico. Discover the ruins of El Morro fort, San Juan's oldest residence La Casa Blanca, and La Plaza de Armas.

Next, take in La Plazuela de la Rogativa. Admire the lovely views and bronze sculpture before heading to La Princesa. Keep your eyes peeled along the route for the blue cobblestones (adoquine) that pave the streets in the old part of the city. End your tour, feeling like you have gone back in time.

I did the audio walking tour. The sites were great, however the directions were confusing at times. It’s started out clear and simple but as we got deeper into the heart of the city the directions became very confusing. We got off track a couple times and google maps/maps was only slightly helpful. As I said, the stops on the tour were great. The directions could have been more clear.
