About San Juan
La Ciudad Amurallada.
San Juan, know as “the walled city”, is the bustling capital of Puerto Rico and one of the biggest and best natural harbors in the Caribbean. It is the second largest seaport in the area (after New York City) and boasts year round summer temperatures. It’s beaches are straight out of a postcard with sparkling blue water and pristine white sand – and the seafood on the island is top notch!
What once was waste from Spain’s iron foundries is now the blue cobblestones that line most of the streets in San Juan. They were turned into blocks in the 16th century when they served as ballasts in sugar carrying ships – creative recycling!
San Juan is a large gem for such a small place. We hope to see you there!
