Visitor Center in Old San Juan Has Moved
The Visitor Center of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company in Old San Juan has moved to a new location. But don’t worry – it’s still easy to find. They only moved right across the street.
The Visitor Center used to be housed in the small Casita at Plaza Darsena. The new location is on the first floor of the Ochoa building which is on the waterfront, just across the street from Pier 1. As you can see, it’s just a short walk from the cruise ship piers.
The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is in the process of converting La Casita into a gallery, which will be the focal point of the Artisan’s Market (or el Mercado de Artesanias) in Plaza Darsena.
They still have a great staff to help you plan your day in town, with maps, brochures and the latest Que Pasa magazine. They are open everyday from 9:00am – 5:30pm.
And if you want to try some delicious Puerto Rican rums, the free Rums of Puerto Rico bar is (supposedly) open from Saturday – Wednesday from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. The bar is closed Thursday and Friday.
