Main Plaza in Old San Juan
Mar 2020 • Couples
This plaza is not the only one in Old San Juan but it is the main one since it is located across the City Hall of San Juan. Hundreds of pigeons will chase you out if you offer them any food.

Fun
Nov 2019
We came out of the Marshall's and found the Plaza de Armas right outside. There were lots of people enjoying the afternoon there. A human statue was performing near the fountain making it even more enjoyable. This is a big town square more active than the Plaza de Colon on the other side of town.

Great place to relax...
Mar 2020
In a city with many wonderful plazas, this one stands out. It's a big space, about a city block long, surrounded by some beautiful buildings. There are several restaurant options here, along with a nice grocery store, a Marshall's if you can believe it, city hall, and some cute shops. In the evening it's a great place to hang out with an ice cream and people watch, and some evenings there is music and other entertainment. A must see in San Juan.

Plaza

The Plaza de Armas of San Juan is one of the main squares in San Juan. It is a pretty little plaza with a fountain and benches to relax while taking in the sights of Old San Juan.

Nice place to take a break while walking around Viejo San Juan
Feb 2020
We lucked out that no cruise ship were in that day. A thousand fewer tourist wandering and congesting the walks. Just sit on a bench with a cold drink and watch life happen by. There is a proper grocery store and a good minimart adjoining the plaza.

Old Town Plaza
Nov 2019
Interesting fountain in a nice centrally located city plaza. The four statues depict the four seasons. Nice place to pull up on a bench if you have time. Another fountain not on during my visit, sort of unusual.

You should check out this old town square.
Feb 2020 • Solo
There are many fountains, benches, and interesting people throughout this park. It is also surrounded by many nice old buildings in Old San Juan.

not well kept
Jan 2020
This was a disappointment after reading the travel books. Plaza had way too many pigeons. It was not clean. The vibe was negative energy.

Public square
Dec 2019 • Couples
I well situated public square where one can take a rest after walking the cobblestone roads in and around Old San Juan. They’re plenty of small restaurants to eat and have a drink at. If you are tired grab a bench or sit under a tree and catch your breath as you people watch. If you like you may even feed the pigeons which will literally eat out of your hands.
