"Nice-to-see (at distance): El Barrio La Perla" San Juan Things to Do Tip by gdilieto
San Juan Things to Do: 300 reviews and 711 photos
I couldn't stop laughing when I read that the slum "La Perla", wedged between the old fortification wall and the ocean right between Fuerte San Cristóbal and El Morro, is referred to by many as "the prettiest slum in the world". As a matter of fact it has an an enviable location and an amazing ocean-front view. All guidebooks I have browsed recommended tourists not to adventure into the neighborhood but you can still enjoy nice views of the picturesque slum from Calle Norzagaray, the road connecting Fuerte San Cristóbal to El Morro, and from the two forts themselves. The cover-photo attached is taken from Fuerte San Cristóbal, the other two from Calle Norzagaray.
