In doing the San Juan walk this gate is a must see. Then to continue on the walkway along the ocean was very pleasant

Great place to sit, take in the views and rest a bit while touring Old San Juan. Incredible to learn the history behind the gates and to think of all the people who have passed through them. Perfect Picture Spot!

Do I have to purchase tickets for these sites? If so would you recommend a tour or just buy the tickets and stroll around myself? Also are the beaches open 24/7. Might be a dumb question but I never got to see the beach at night in New York.

No tickets required! Only for the fortresses and they are cheap. The beaches are good and you can do as you like. Pretty safe IMHO.
