Wandering through the wealth of forts, plazas, churches, museums, and cafes, uncovering the city's hidden gems. Explore the charming colonial facades, ancient forts, and cobblestoned streets of Old San and get a feel for what it was like during the Spanish colonial era as you walk through the Puerta De San Juan, one of the only gates left that served one of the oldest cities in the world.

It boasts nearly 29,000 acres of lush mountainous terrain, with waterfalls dotting the landscape, rushing rivers and gurgling brooks, bromeliads clinging to towering trees, and bamboo groves opening to spectacular ocean views.
