If you are into history great place to explore. Not expensive $5 each. Children , elderly and military are usually free. Sign for all parks free access card with veterans VA card. Beautiful view.

Great place to visit. There is a lot of history here. The price is cheap to get in. If you take the national park trolley it will take you right to the entrance. If you decide to walk it is a decent walk to get in.

How can you come to Puerto Rico and not visit this place?! You can walk on the grass which I didn't know because it wasn't busy when I arrived but then later found out. Gorgeous place to explore rent a car and visit this lovely country.

Very interesting, well kept historical landmark. Beautiful view, as well. I'd say it's a must if you happen to be in San Juan. Close to the cruise ship terminal and downtown. Allow 2-3 hours.

It's very picturesque! Especially at night. I would've given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the lack of authority in the area. You'll notice police officers around the parking lot but they rarely visit the actual Morro, and kids like to do things that they shouldn't be doing outdoors...
