Old San Juan is a special historic community with its narrow

cobblestone streets reminiscent of the Spanish presence for more than 500 years; vibrant, full of

contrasts, with plazas, museums, forts, churches, gardens, art galleries and schools, theaters and arts

and crafts fairs. All these historical spaces mixed in with modern life needs like drugstores, post office

coffee shops, hotels with casinos, banks, salsa clubs, brand outlet stores, beauty shops, supermarket

and many restaurants with local and international cuisines. SEVEN AMAZING WALKABLE BLOCKS



Manager info

About: ABOUT THE OWNERS The owners were both born and raised in Puerto Rico. Their dream of living in Old San Juan became true when they bought and restored their building. Upon retirement they live most of the time in their apartment in Old San Juan. They have traveled extensively and consider Old San Juan and Puerto Rico as one of the special places in the world worth visiting. Last year, while traveling to Italy with their family, they chose to rent apartments in Florence and Liguria. This experience provided the opportunity for the whole family to feel part of the communities they visited and it prompted them to share their unique and special place in Old San Juan with other people.
