What is your best overall travel tip for San Juan?

Stay in Old San Juan! Choose one restaurant of coffee stand you love (we chose Mallorca) and go there every day. The workers will come to know you and your preferences and you will get a feel of what it's like to be a local here.

Just walking around Old San Juan is amazing, and getting Mofongo and drinking Pina Coladas. There is a cute cat sanctuary called Save A Gato that is really fun to visit https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147320-d6487518-Reviews-Save_A_Gato_Cat_Sanctuary-San_Juan_Puerto_Rico.html

Lauren's Travel Tips for San Juan

What is your best overall travel tip for San Juan?

Plan to use a rideshare like Uber or Lyft if you want to explore Old San Juan. Parking is extremely limited, and the city is best experienced on foot, anyway. Allow yourself the time and freedom to wander the colorful streets without a specific itinerary in mind. Pop in to the local art galleries and shops, cool down with a popsicle from Senor Paleta, grab a custom fitted Panama hat from Ole on Calle de la Fortaleza (less than a block from the popular 'umbrella street' art installation), and enjoy a meal at any one of the many outdoor restaurant patios around town. Ask your photographer and/or you Uber driver where you should eat. We greatly enjoyed Jose Enrique in Santurce and Puerto Criollo in Old San Juan. If you like a meal with flavor and crunch, order the kan kan porkchop. You won't regret it!

What is your best overall travel tip for San Juan?

Camille, our flytographer, recommended a host of things to do and places to visit, and one we really enjoyed was Vacia Talega beach. It was off the beaten path in that only locals were there, and the water was BEAUTIFUL and so blue and clear! We'd definitely go there again.
