Caribbean 8: Puerto Rico - The Old and the New

Caribbean  8: Puerto Rico - The Old and the New

A tour of Old San Juan, founded in 1521 and a national heritage site, offers viewers a rare opportunity to visit this capital city's most historic homes and glimpse the Puerto Rico of over 500 years ago. The architecture reflects the Spanish style, and homes were built like fortresses. Only one gate remains to enter the city, but San Juan now combines its history with a modern vibrancy that entices visitors to shop and enjoy the vistas. Small country inns called paradores are popular tourist accommodations, and many were once private homes. These paradores dot the countryside, and some are quite near fishing villages where visitors can rent boats and explore the area and watch oyster fishermen working the shoreline. The next oldest settlement in Puerto Rico is San German, known as "La Ciudad de las Lomas" or "City of Hills." Here you may stroll the cobblestone streets and view the 250 historic buildings in this appealing town that is filled with old world charm. 02/09DE IJSCA 15 min.
