Elopement in Old San Juan

FILED IN: Elopements, Weddings

From the salty air to the warm cobblestones as you walk along the historic city, Old San Juan is a magical place for your elopement. The smell of that puerto rican food sneaking out the doors of the different restaurants lining the streets as you look up to the incredible detailed architecture surrounding you. Hearing the beautiful words that are spoken by the locals, even if you don’t know Spanish, you can tell in a moment that it is alive and real. For a moment you might even think that you are in Europe with the Spanish colonial architecture. See, that’s what Old San Juan does, it transports you to another place even another time some might say.
