Paseo de la Princesa, San Juan

4.7
#3 of 48 in Historic Sites in Puerto Rico
Historic Walking Area Landmark
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.

  • Numerous artesans displays on cruise ship days. Lively music with local dancing. Beautiful landmarks. Enjoyable experience!
  • Beautiful place to visit and see for yourself, plus take selfies. To my wife here because it meant something to me to be able to bring my wife to the same place that royalty used to walk on.
  • Princesa Fountain is a great place to see, also a nice place to anchor in a boat. The fountain is directly below Fortaleza so there are great views all around. Also a great place to start a walk along the waterfront towards El Morro.
  • Nice place to visit. Very relaxing and historical
  • This is more then awesome with more then 4 century's of history and traditional area for visitors. A place you need to visit at San Juan Puerto Rico.
