  • Busy area with lots of street vendors. Plenty of cheap eats and souvenir shops. Pretty holiday decorations with large Christmas tree, Mary and child, and three Magi. Close enough to walk to from ship cruise terminals.
  • Good place to stay chillin. If you have kids, they can run around. At nights you can see street music shows.
  • Along with the "El Morro" fortress, Plaza Colon is one of the areas you can't miss while visiting Old San Juan. The Colonial architecture is at its best here with beautiful building, balconies and alleys.
  • Had a good time around here. Rich history all around. It's one of the must-see places in Puerto Rico.
  • Historic plaza across the street from also historic Tapia Theater and the Casino de Puerto Rico. Good restaurants nearby.
