The building is surrounded by historic monuments. We are 1 block north of the Cristo Chapel, Pigeon Park, and La Fortaleza (the Governor’s Mansion) so there are 2 policemen on our corner 24/7.
One block west is the Plaza de Armas, where you'll find cafes, drug stores, grocer, a stop for the free trolleys that go around San Juan, and a taxi stand.

                  * Utility services throughout Puerto Rico are somewhat feeble. It is not unusual for the water, electricity or both to go out with or without notice. We have a water cistern, which will last the building several days if everyone’s careful. Water outages rarely last that long. There is however no remedy for city caused power outages so we cannot be responsible for pursuant inconvenience or damage.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  WHERE’S THE BEACH?

                  We are not beachfront, but Old San Juan is where everything else is. Most people choose to stay in Old San Juan because this is where everyone comes at night, so traffic coming into town then can be a nightmare. It's easier to get in & out of town during the day to go to the beach. That way you can return, shower, maybe take a nap before going out again. Then after dinner, or whatever, you just have to walk a few blocks and you’re home, instead of hassling with traffic & finding a cab.

                  The nearest beach is a long walk, or a 5 min cab or bus ride. We have a picture among ours here, and you can look up Escambron. It is a well maintained, free, clean, safe, beautiful beach; the only one with a lifeguard. Unlike the hotel beaches, it gets sun all day, and there are plenty of palms for shade.

                  The beach is part of a very interesting park with historic battlements & part of the old walls of the city. From the beach you see both forts.

                  Early mornings the women’s water aerobics group meets there. Very friendly group, you can work out with them for free. There is an outdoor snack bar that also serves drinks cheap, and a reasonable restaurant with outdoor terrace and indoor air-conditioned dining room, serving local food.

                  You will not find a better beach in San Juan.
