Paseo De La Princesa - Review
The most beautiful Promenade in Old San Juan is the Paseo de la Princesa. A great place for a leisurely stroll experiencing the esplanade, the Old Walls, the governor’s mansion, the sunset over the bay, the food, music and overall loving vibe of the place. La Princesa was once a prison which is now the headquarters for Puerto Rico Tourism Company. Further ahead you’ll come across a beautiful fountain known as the Raices which combines the elements of Amerindian, African and Spanish culture.

Paseo De La Princesa, San Juan Reviews
Its a stunningly beautiful area,just looking at the view on a clear day is stunning to say the least. The tree covered area is just lovely. The majestic fountain is a piece of beauty.
This is very gorgeous place to visit while in Puerto Rico. It is free to visit and does offer free parking as well. You can take lots of pictures by the beach and watch La Fortaleza (the Governor's home while he is in the office). You can clearly see the difference on how they leave versus the rest of the Puerto Ricans. Not fair at all but that's what you get when you vote based on colors and political parties instead of using your brains while electing government officials.
Perfect place for romantic date. Or just to get away from all the troubles in life. Best view is next to the fountain when the Cruises leave.
Paseo La Princesa is a must if you are staying or visting Old San Juan, it is pet friendly. I prefer to come here at night.
The walk and sculptures are beautiful, but take a moment to look to your “left.” A small fishing hut stands nearby where locals bring in and process their catch each day. Nearby some of the local cats wait for a scrap, as do another less expected patron. 4-5 ft Tarpon sit in the shallows waiting to be fed and are delightful to watch as these 100+ lb fish fight for the scraps. This is an easy walk to the San Juan Gate, though the cats are nearly everywhere and they have made the area surrounding the walk their litter box: you’ve been warned.
