Step back in time and go see Old San Juan. It's like going to Spain, honestly. We loved it. Many charming stores and restaurants.

The narrow roads, old world charming buildings and quaint storefronts were fascinating. Bring your camera! I recommend starting at the top of the hill and working your way down

Newly painted with many interesting shops and restaurants! We spent 3 days wandering and loved it! Who needs to visit Cuba? Puerto Rico is THE place to go! Clean, friendly, so much to do!

Old San Juan is an excellent walking town with many authentic restaurant venues. Beautiful architecture in every block. The blue glazed brick cobblestone is very unique. Lots of great shopping too!

I just used google maps and it looks like Old San Juan is about 9 min from Condado Lagoon Villa. When we were there in April we were a little further, but it was really easy to get there via Uber.
