🇵🇷 Old San Juan

All Along The Watchtowers in San Juan, Puerto Rico

You can find them in other former strongholds of the Spanish Empire – St. Augustine, Campeche, Havana, Santo Domingo, Portobelo, Guam…

Nowhere, though, are the iconic sentry boxes that sit atop the ramparts of most every Spanish fort as synonymous with a place as they are with Puerto Rico; and in particular, Old San Juan.

Some of my fondest Caribbean travel memories were made in and around the ancient city’s cobblestone streets, many of which I’ve touched on here.

None of my previous OSJ adventuring took me to the heights pictured above, though the pic definitely stirs emotions in me to get back here soon to soak up more of the history, fun, and sabor Boricua that makes Puerto Rico so special.
