Create an itinerary including Paseo de la Princesa
Take a relaxing stroll along the beautiful Paseo de la Princesa, the city's ocean-front promenade. Stop and peruse the wares of artisan vendors and try some of the foods available. Observe the wonderful architecture, palm-lined walkways, and sculpted fountains. In the evenings, local musicians come out to play for dancing revelers. If you head out in the midday sun, bring a lot of water and a sun hat, as promenade offers little in the way of shade. Put Paseo de la Princesa at the forefront of your travel plans using our San Juan journey planner.
