San Juan, Puerto Rico

After driving around and surfing on the south and west coasts of Puerto Rico, MariĆ© and I dropped off our rental car in San Juan and checked into our funky hotel in the heart of Old San Juan.  Arriving within Old San Juan you feel like you're stepping foot into an old Spanish city, yet here we are in the "New World" in the good ol' USA.  The forts here date back to the 16th century when San Juan was a strategic base and stopover point for Spanish explorers crossing the Atlantic to plunder gold and resources from all over the Americas.
