The best camping near San Juan National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

Step into the past at this World Heritage Site in the heart of Old San Juan. Walls and fortresses built 400 years ago draw history lovers to this Caribbean treasure. Put on your walking shoes, and take a full day to explore the beautifully preserved fortresses.

The site's structures offer a glimpse of the centuries-long fight over the sought-after island. Here, you can explore tunnels, dungeons, and barracks spanning the 16th through the 20th centuries. Don't forget your camera. Few things are more photo-worthy than Puerto Rico's Spanish colonial architecture.

Visiting the two major forts is a must. Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, or simply "El Morro," draws the most visitors. The massive fortress includes six levels of fortifications. On the nearby grounds, locals fly kites and walk their pooches. While less flashy than El Morro, Castillo San Cristobal is the largest New World fortress. Visit with a tour guide to best absorb the fort's rich history.

Fortin San Juan de la Cruz, or "El Canuelo," is a little fortress on the Isla de Cabras. Since you'd have to drive all the way to Toa Baja to visit it, you might just want to snap some photos from El Morro. Before your day ends, take in the historic city walls that hug the shoreline. See them from Paseo del Morro National Recreation Trail and Paseo de la Princesa. Both walkways also offer views of the Atlantic and San Juan Bay.

Bust out your tank top and shorts as the weather here hovers in the 80s and 90s (Fahrenheit) year-round. However, you may want to avoid hurricane season from June to November. We recommend catching the short dry season in April to boost your chances of sunny weather. Whenever you visit, these historic forts are sure to capture your imagination.
