We said goodbye to Puerto Rico by exploring Old San Juan on our last morning. After a redeeming breakfast at Caficultura, we strolled the town and consulted Fodor’s, which told us that if you only have 1 day in Old San Juan, head to Castillo San Felipe del Morro.

Built between 1540 and 1783, this six-level fortress was designed to protect the harbor and San Juan. We wandered all of the open levels and even got caught in a quick downpour which was a nice relief from the incredible heat. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day!

Thanks for letting me relive this great, spontaneous vacation! I’ll be back soon with my latest challenge — making two new recipes a week. I’ve already discovered some good ones!
