"Take a stroll through history...and more!" El Morro Tip by wilocrek

El Morro, San Juan: 38 reviews and 102 photos


Visiting El Morro is fantastic way to transport yourself into another time and place. Just by walking around the fort can give one an idea of how it would of been to be a soldier stationed at El Morro. From the winding corridors and the arched door ways, to the actual cannons still point out to sea, it doesn't take much imagination to put yourself in their place. And when your looking out to the ocean from the high walls of the fort there is no evidence of present day vs the 1600's. The ocean never changes and the walls have held their own over the years! Also plan on taking a walk between the two forts down the coastal road that overlooks the ocean on one side and has bright, colorful houses on the other!
