Old San Juan ('Viejo San Juan') is one of the oldest settlements in the Americas, it's origins dating back to the 16th century, and it is the historic colonial section of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is located on a small island connected to the mainland of Puerto Rico by bridges and a causeway. Nearest beach (Escambron) is just a 30-minute walk, or 5 minutes away by taxi, public bus or car; twice that for the Convention Center. OSJ is mostly enjoyed by walking, but there are some public parking garages on the periphery.
The district is characterized by numerous public plazas and churches, including the Cathedral of San Juan.
With its abundance of shops, historic places, museums, open air cafés, restaurants, clubs, gracious homes, tree-shaded plazas, and its old beauty and architectonical peculiarity, OSJ is the main spot in Puerto Rico for international and local tourism. A free tourist trolley serves the old city. The centuries-old Morro Fort complex is just a few blocks away.
