We've been a week in PR so had enough time to go around.
Reading about it, we decided to go and give it a try.
Nothing I haven't seen before and nothing so spectacular to put it on your prime list.
It's primary a residential area with the main star being the area around Plaza de Mercado. A lot of bars and restaurants with live dancing on the streets.
This area seemed safe with lot of people hanging out, but beware just a 2-3 streets away is a pretty sketchy area we encountered when going to a good Mexican restaurant 10 min away.

You can find more & better street art throughout the city. Few murals there & not the most interesting ones we found in SJ.

Short Uber ride from old San Juan brought us to this lively, up and coming part of town. The big attraction here is the street murals. They are painted on many of the buildings and it's quite fun to wander the neighborhoods trying to find them. A must see if you are in the area and enjoy art.

It's a must if you go to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Great Street art that you enjoy by walking aorund this neighborhood. Learn the story behind it before you go! Each mural has it's own story.

Visit Santurce for a taste of true Puerto Rican urban arts and culture. Walk the streets and check out the stunning murals and end at La Placita, the market that turns into a nighttime festival Thursday through Sunday. We missed the market because we arrived too late but loved the music, food and drinks of the street fest in the square. This is off the usual beaten tourist path but one of the best ways to experience the fun of this friendly island!

A great neighborhood to view many murals and grafittis. Some of the streets lights are not yet replaced since Hurricane Maria, i recommend the visit during daylight.

This fresh market is super small compared to what I have seen. You can buy mostly fruits and vegetable. We went for coconut water, but they only had by the 1/2 gallon no in the coconut itself.
Next to la placita which has many local redtaurants and is a nice place to hang out at night.

This is a district located right outside old San Juan. Here you will find tons of restaurants and nightlife. Make sure to go to La Placita de Santurce.
