Visitors can stroll along its impeccably preserved cobblestone streets lined with vibrantly colorful Spanish colonial homes. Dozens of museums and landmarks offer glimpses into the city’s long history while galleries, local boutiques and craft stores signal its ongoing modern renewal. Visit the old city’s restaurants and bars to savor authentic criollo meals alongside the best rum cocktails San Juan has to offer.
