Kite Flying at El Morro

"The most popular spot on the island for Kite Flying is the wide, open field of El Morro. The area around the historical landmark contains all the necessary conditions for successful kite flying in a picturesque setting: the sprawling green lawn, the unobstructured airspace (no power lines or aircraft), and the constant, unrelenting trade winds. With these characteristics, it's no wonder why kite flying in El Morro is something every Puerto Rican family tries at least once." By: EyeTour.com

Having fun in Old San Juan is not very hard. You could just buy a couple of kites and go crazy over the open green grass fields by El Morro. But if you prefer your schedule to be a bit more structured, any of these tours will show you around a city like no other.

  19. Castillo San Cristóbal

    The largest fort ever built by Spain in the New World, the imposing Castillo San Cristóbal was completed in 1785. It was intended to guard against a land invasion, so it was ingeniously designed according to a “defense in depth” model, which created numerous successive barriers for advancing enemy forces.

    San Juan

  20. Castillo San Felipe del Morro (“El Morro”)

    El Morro is perhaps the most famous historic structure in Puerto Rico. Begun in 1539, the might fortress was built on a narrow point overlooking the San Juan Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It served as a formidable stronghold, successfully repelling almost every naval attack on the city. Today, El Morro and its sister fort, Castillo San Cristóbal, are National Historic Sites and the oldest European constructions in the United States National Park Service.

    San Juan

  21. Castillo Serrallés

    Built in the 1930s, the opulent Serrallés Castle was the home of the rum barons who created Don Q Rum. The mansion is now a museum with authentic furnishings from the era, lovely gardens and, across the street, a second attraction in the Vigía Cross.

A visit here includes a trip to the idyllic and unspoiled Gilligan’s Island.

Hacienda Buena Vista is located north of Ponce.

    Ponce

  31. Isla de Cabras National Park

    The small battery here (called “El Fortín del Cañuelo”) was El Morro’s deadly counterpart, delivering a barrage of cannon fire that made the San Juan Bay practically impregnable. Close by is another reason to visit this area: the Blue Flag public beach at Punta Salinas.
