  • Cemetery was well kept and very interesting to view. Wasn't expecting this while on a walk to the Fort, but was able to view from the walls surrounding the fort / cemetary.  more »
  • Make sure you get a reputable tour guide. They will take you all over San Juan for 20 dollars for person with airport transfers.  more »
  • If you like Cemeteries, this needs to be on your bucket list. Very old and ornate. Lots of history here.  more »
