- Plaza Darsenas, Old San Juan
Maximum of 8 people. History and architecture take an interesting spin in Old San Juan. You are no longer learning while sitting down and reading, you are walking, breathing it and taking it in. I will show you what I have known to be true my whole life, this islet is a paradise of never-ending beauty and stories. My goal in every tour is that you fall in love with at least one thing: be that coffee, the ocean or our colorful buildings, this will be a well rounded, heartfelt experience like no other. This is a walking tour done on your time. If you have any questions, send me an email! 10 people maximum. What our 2.5-hour itinerary looks like: Our starting point will be Plaza Darsenas, where we will go over our route, introductions, etc. Our second stop will be an old Citadel turned Museum. Making our way through Paseo la Princesa we will have a few stops to talk about botany, our first Lady Mayor and the sound we miss the most when we leave Puerto Rico. After a while, we will reach La Puerta de San Juan so you can begin exploring the city within the wall and experience how it must have been coming into the city centuries ago. We will head up the street with one of my favorite views in the whole world… to get to the Cathedral (up a hill!). In La Catedral, we will spend some time so we can talk about a few things about or culture, our heritage and our history! When outside, we have an opportunity to visit El Convento, use the restrooms if we need to and see some details about its architecture. Then, we’ll make quick stops at La Capilla del Cristo and Calle Fortaleza or how it was newly renamed, Calle Resistencia. After this, we’ll make our way to Plaza de Armas where you can see the City Hall, Department of State and the first-ever department store on the island! Sit for a bit with one of my favorite composers if you’d like.
