Art Museum
“The Museum of Art of Puerto Rico (MAPR), cultural heritage of the Puerto Rican people, opened its doors in 2000 with the mission of enriching the lives of its diverse audiences by making accessible to all, knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts of Puerto Rico and the World. Since then, MAPR has received over 2 million visitors and has presented over one hundred exhibitions of local and international artists, multiple and varied workshops, courses, seminars, research and education programs, concerts, lectures and symposia that have impacted audiences of all ages and have positively marked the lives of students, teachers, families and community members. MAPR offers artistic and educational programs that enrich the lives of diverse audiences, both local and international, and also serves populations with particular needs for whom the Museum maintains a specially designed program. The Museum serves children, youth, adults and other members of our community through tailored experiences that allow them to learn about and enjoy the various manifestations of art. Each year, the Museum presents new projects that expand the scope of its mission and attract more and more visitors, while writing new chapters in the history of art in Puerto Rico. The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico has a collection of more than 1,300 works of art in different media and formats, from artists of all generations. The MAPR is an affiliated institution of the Smithsonian Institution and accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). ”

Gebouw
“Ballajá Barracks (or Cuartel de Ballajá in Spanish) is a military barracks located in Old San Juan, about a 15-minute walk from the 'Blue Room'. It was built around 1860 for the Spanish troops established on the island and their families. Today, the Ballajá Barracks houses several educational and cultural organizations, namely the Museo de Las Américas on the second floor of the building since 1992. On the first floor, there are music and dance schools and a library, among a variety of restaurants.”

History Museum
“El Museo de la Hamaca en San Sebastián del Pepino es una maravilla. La entrada es gratis. Pueden encontrar la etimología de la palabra hamaca, la historia, las partes de la hamaca pepiniana, los utensilios para confeccionarla, la historia de las artesanas hamaqueras más destacadas, entre otros datos importantes sobre este arte precolombino. La joven que brinda el recorrido guiado es excelente. Además, les ponen en contacto con las artesanas hamaqueras del barrio Robles para que puedan encargar la Hamaca de su predilección, ya sea la tradicional para tumbarse, la de silla, la de hilo o de maguey. Pueden escoger los colores. Hacen un trabajo espléndido para mantener viva la tradición hamaquera. La tiendita del museo tiene piezas únicas alusivas a la hamaca de hilo o maguey, a precios accesibles. Recomendadísimo. Gloria a las manos de la mujer rural.”

Lighthouse
“Lighthouse you can actually go into. It is also a museum. Has rest rooms. Free Entrance. This light house is located at the South Western tip of the Island. Can't go more South West than this. Breathtaking views all around! Awesome for great pics. Great hike to reach the lighthouse. Wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes. Very Hot, so take your water, sunscreen & bug spray. After you enjoyed the views and picture taking you'll want to relax at Playa Sucia (not really dirty) that's the name but it is a beautiful beach to take a dip (strong waves) and sun bathe. FYI, there are family of cats in the parking area. You will also pass the Salt Flats with pink water getting there. Another site that can't be passed up. Across the street there are local artisans set up to show you their craft and great place to pick up that special something. Help, support our local artists.”

Wandelpad
“Right on the roaring Atlantic coast is Cueva del Indio, or Indian Cave, named after the indigenous hieroglyphs found carved into the rocks. The entrance fee is $5 and will give you access to impressive cliffs, views of crashing waves, and a natural bridge formed from rocks. Prior to Hurricane María there was a ladder leading down to the cave which is now gone. Experienced climbers can still make the descent down to the cave where there are rock carvings made by the Taínos, the tribe that lived on the island before the arrival of Columbus and the Spanish. Note: Parque Nacional de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy, which offers access to the largest cave network in the Western hemisphere, is currently closed. A potential reopening date has not been set. However, there are many other exciting and beautiful caves to visit throughout the island.”

Historic Site
“For centuries, this doorway served to keep invaders out of the city. Today, you can walk through the La Puerta de San Juan to explore and experience the splendor and romance of this elegant and vibrant city. The experience through the door is more magical if you start your walk through Paseo La Princesa. If you reach it from inside the city, you’ll be greeted with a view of the San Juan Bay. From either direction, be prepared to be wowed by the magic and splendor of the city. The first thing you will notice as you approach the gate is the inscription Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. The verse comes from The Sanctus, “Holy”, a Latin hymn from Catholic liturgy. It means: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord”

Hotel
“I recommend this place because is one of the most beautiful buildings in the City. Inaugurated as a monastery in 1651. Must take a look to the interior patio from the second level and have a mojito or good wine and tapas, especially in the stairs facing Cristo street. There is also an old chapel and can see old art works all around the public areas.”
