When Puerto Rico comes to mind, most people imagine the colors of Old San Juan. From the bright buildings to the blue cobblestone streets, to the vibrant ocean water peeking through the cityscape, every inch of Old San Juan is bright and happy and bursting with life.
We stayed at an AirBnB on Calle San Sebastian, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the location. I highly recommend staying in Old San Juan for your first trip to Puerto Rico because it eliminates the need for a car, which is great because parking is next to impossible in this area. The red building above is home to my favorite bar, Aquí Se Puede. One evening Victor, his father (also named Victor), my dad and I had the whole place to ourselves. The bartender was a phenomenal mixologist (he made best old fashioned I’ve ever had) and even played Sam Cooke upon my request.
