Go beyond the landmarks with a private guided tour

Viejo San Juan has a lot more than forts, public squares and monuments. It has a special vibe that can be used as part of our healing process.

This tour will uncover some aspects of the city that most people don't perceive. We'll acknowledge the energy that makes it an amazing city.

What makes Old San Juan so special?
- Has the oldest Cathedral in America (the whole hemisphere).
- Housed the first formal hospital in Puerto Rico.
- Has the second oldest church in the Hemisphere.
- Is considered the "crib of Christianity" in America. We had the first bishop, and we led all the churches in the hemisphere.
- Important missionaries (saints) visited us. - Houses all 3 branches of government.
- For centuries, has been considered the "Gateway to the Caribbean".
- Is located on one of the corners of the Bermuda Triangle.
- In 1984 UNESCO inscribed it as a World Heritage Site

We'll visit the places with the best vibes, and learn how to perceive them. We'll also explore our own inner space.


We'll meet by the "Capilla del Cristo de los Milagros" in the corner between "Calle Cristo" and "Calle Tetuan".
Along the way we are going to meditate and open ourselves to perceive the beautiful energies on several spots in Viejo San Juan.

We are going to visit Fortaleza (from the outside), Las Siervas de Maria (convent), Catedral, El Convento, La Rogativa, Puerta de San Juan (gate), Paseo del Morro, some of the bastions, and the grounds of El Morro.

A great overview of Old San Juan given we arrived 24 hours after the big power outage and had rain near the end of the tour.
