  • The San Juan River is the main and almost only means that provides tap water (previous reservoirs and filtered) to all of the Capital City of San Juan and surrounding departments; as well as also is the mostly used for irrigation is a place of recreation and great natural beauty, ideal to cool off or take a few mates. There is very little shade and almost no places to buy something, so you have to be prepared. In some areas they can charge you $50 income. I have attached a photo, did you useful?

Where to stay in San Juan

Within Av. Circunvalacion sits the main bulk of San Juan's places to stay. Plush, modern high-rises tower over the central neighborhood, while older, more traditional hotels line the edges of the main urban parks and plazas. Budget-friendly options come in the form of unassuming, converted residential blocks and rental apartments. If you head outside of the ring road, you'll have a choice between relaxing lodgings on the estates of local wineries, and a good selection of back-to-basics campgrounds.
