Quietly nestled in the cool shadowed streets of the oldest part of Old San Juan, between the famous San Juan Gate (Puerta de San Juan) and the Cathedral of San Juan Citadel is this quaint and unique gem of a hotel. Hotel Villa Herencia offers easy access to countless shops, galleries, restaurants, and nightlife without being too close, so one can sleep soundly. Old cobblestone streets lead travelers to this colorful hotel deep in the heart of Old San Juan.
Villa Herencia hotel sits nestled in the center of Old San Juan’s Historic district. Historic sites, churches, and plazas are all within steps of your hotel. Rest quiet without the hustle and bustle of the city in our quiet part of the city after your adventures. The entire hotel is booked just for ZenRock so that we can enjoy Old San Juan and then retreat to our urban haven.
Enjoy an abundance of fresh, regional Puerta Rican foods prepared in delicious, traditional dishes like mofongo, as well more modern cuisine paired with local flavors.
Our private catering chefs will prepare meals for our nights in at the hotel and we will also explore local restaurants out in Old San Juan to feel the vibrant city life while we dine. Vegan, vegetarian and food allergies or sensitivities are accommodated.
Walking Tour of Old San Juan
We will explore the 500 year old walled city of Old San Juan, discovering secret corners and little-known spots full of charm and steeped in history. As we walk through Old San Juan’s blue cobble-stoned streets, accompanied by a knowledgeable local architect, we will learn about how the city was built on this rocky island jutting out to the sea, observe the urban layout, constructive methods and architectural details of the Spanish colonial buildings and defensive structures. You will experience historical architecture with an insider, not just as a tourist, since we will visit private residences and places with limited access. You will have a chance to peer into dungeons, wonder at frescoed chapels, and climb rooftops to explore hidden towers, basque in secluded Spanish patios, and learn about the fascinating historical characters and events that shaped the city.
Evening Kayak on a Bioluminescent Bay
Bioluminescence is one of planet Earth’s best-kept secrets. Tiny organisms make the water glow at night. They found the perfect place to live in the Fajardo Bio Bay. Stir the water of the Bioluminescent Bay and lots of sparkles will activate. Glowing trails will swirl and flow with the water.
The Fajardo Bio Bay Kayak Tour feels like discovering a whole new world. This bioluminescent bay is part of a nature reserve. The entrance is a beautiful mangrove channel. All along the way you are surrounded by protected life, and at night, the stars fill the sky!
Hiking El Yunque Rain Forest
El Yunque National Forest adds a beautiful day of adventure to your Puerto Rico adventure. It’s a must see! Unfortunately, El Yunque experienced significant damage from Hurricane Maria and repair work will continue for quite some time. What’s amazing to see is how resilient nature is! Throughout the park, you can see how the landscape is healing itself.
Fortresses and Cemetery of Old San Juan
Old San Juan is home to two Spanish fortresses and one amazing cemetery. The city and the entire island have been invaded many times by different cultures, but the most influential was the Spanish rule which remained from the 1400’s until 1898 when the US took control from Spain. Our local expert will walk us through these incredible structures and explain both their significance and construction.
Snorkeling and Sunset Catamaran Cruise
We will enjoy an afternoon aboard a private catamaran on the azure waters of the Caribbean. We will have the opportunity to snorkel or just sit and enjoy the sunshine. We will head back to the villa after we share that special moment that ends each tropical day and the sun drops into the sea.
