The Basics

Old San Juan is a staple in city sightseeing tours, which offer an easy way to get an overview of the historic city (founded in 1521) and cross must-see sites such as La Fortaleza off your list. More tailored options include food tours and walking tours with a private tour guide. Those preferring to minimize walking can opt for a Segway tour or a cruise on San Jose Bay.

Puerto Rico Instagram Tour: Old San Juan, Rainforest and Beach
Hector is the perfect tour guide. Put on your walking shoes because this tour is extensive! We started in old San Juan & moved to la perks overlooking the water. We stopped for gelato then headed up the mountains to the forest! Once there we took a 15 minute hike climbing up & down rocks & hills until we ended at a beautiful waterfall in el yunque. 100/100 would definitely recommend if you enjoy nature/outdoor excursions

Old San Juan: Let the city's buildings tell you their stories on an audio tour
This is seriously the cutest thing ever. My friend and I had a blast walking Old San Juan listening to these adorable 6th graders give each building's history in 1st person. The flexibility is awesome doing this vs a guided tour b/c you can start and stop it as needed, which we did take a pit stop in a cute little bar for a mojito along the way! Much better experience and at a cheaper price equals win-win!!

I would recommend the walking tour for any one visiting San Juan
