San Juan, Puerto Rico was the first stop in our Caribbean cruise. It is a great city full of history and color. The oldest part of the city is a short walk from the port.

 

Fortified Walls

Another short walk east takes you to the coast of the island. You can pass through one of the gates to a wonderful walkway right next to the ocean.

The view is spectacular being surrounded by the ocean on one side and the ancient fortified walls of the city on the other.

Back in the city, old and vibrantly painted buildings fight for space. The roads are very tight with scarce room for cars and people together. Most of the roads in old Puerto Rico are paved with beautiful blue cobblestones. I would imagine they are spectacular when rained on and in good light.
