Puerto Rico, San Juan, travel, photography, beach,Puerto Rico, San JuanSan Juan is like most nice beach towns in America. There are fun restaurants, big fancy hotels, gift shops, busy streets etc. They make it a policy that all the beaches are open to the public, which is pretty cool. A good place to get a beer or relax in the sand.<br/>Old San Juan is more like a place you would find in Europe. We spent some time lost in the dense grid of one-way streets. The city is encased in colonial Spanish fortress walls. As a guy who used to play with castles as a kid, places like this are amazing. There are ramparts, turrets, dungeons and canon balls. The United States used these same walls during WWII and added a few more modern elements.<br/><br/>For more photos and videos by Mark Lewis visit markilewis.com<br/><br/>For more &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.mlewisphotovideo.com/favorites&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;photos &lt;/a&gt;and &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.mlewisphotovideo.com/video&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;videos &lt;/a&gt;by &lt;a href=&quot;mailto:mark@mlewisphotovideo.com&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;Mark Lewis &lt;/a&gt;visit &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.mlewisphotovideo.com/home&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;www.mlewisphotovideo.com&lt;/a&gt;<br/>      San Juan is like most nice beach towns in America.
