"Visit the El Morro" Castillo San Felipe del Morro Tip by joiwatani
Castillo San Felipe del Morro, Puerto Rico: 17 reviews and 40 photos
There were two things that I wanted to see in San Juan, Puerto Rico: The famous San Felipe Del Morro Castle, sometimes called the El Morro and the San Cristobal Castle where the cannon balls are located.
Due to lack of time as I was only here to volunteer up in the jungles of Indiera, I didn't have to time to explore the San Cristobal Castle.
At the El Morro, you can see an old cannon that dates back when the Spaniards came to the island. The city is surrounded with a fortress.
The walk to the Castle is very far so make sure to bring a good pair of walking shoes. Also, make sure to bring an umbrella just in case it rains while you are there. You never know the weather of Puerto Rico. Sometimes it rains in the morning and sometimes it rains in the afternoon. When it does not rain, it gets really hot and humid, so , as tip, make sure to wear comfortably.
Make sure to go down to the steps and head to the canyon so you can see the spectacular view of the Old San Juan.
Address: Old San Juan, Puerto Rico
Directions: The best way to enter the El Morro is throug the Del Morro Road or the Norzagaray and straignt to Del Morro Road. If you take the La Marina Street, it will lead you to the bottom of the fortress and it's harder to walk up to the castle.
