Visiting Old San Juan is incredible! The Spanish architecture with cafes, bars and clubs... You can take many pictures or spend an afternoon just walking through its old streets. Likewise, the county that divides the old San Juan from the new is modern, with more of an international vibe and luxury shops along the main avenue. Also there's Ashford and its recognised restaurants and parks.
