Eating in the dimly lit, club-like atmosphere of Marmalade is an all-encompassing experience. There's no a la carte menu, just three tasting menus—you can choose from four courses ($75), five courses ($85), or six courses ($95), with the option of wines pairings with each. The food is Puerto Rican-international fusion, with a fresh, veggie-heavy focus; like the kimchi Boricua made with organic local vegetables and starfruit; or the vegetarian spaghetti and "meatballs," made with spaghetti squash and cooked in a local heirloom tomato sauce.

Housed in a pretty Spanish villa and cozily decorated with hanging plants, twinkle lights, and vintage furniture, Casita Miramar feels warm and inviting from the moment you step in. This is one of the best spots in San Juan for down-home comida criolla: the traditional Puerto Rican cuisine that pulls from the island's Spanish, African, and Taino heritage. We recommend the perfectly cooked mofongo (fried and mashed plantains), as well as the beef stew, which is so comforting and hearty you'll need a nap afterwards.

El Jibarito is beloved for its comida criolla, cooked to order by the owner's wife, Aida. Come here for stick-to-your-ribs comfort food like chuletas fritas (fried pork chops), bistec encebollado (steak with onions), carne guisada (beef stew), and pork ribs with a side of mofongo, naturally. Save room for the flan. From the moment you walk into this mom-and-pop spot, you know you're about to tuck into a really great meal.

Que PezCa'o is a casual, unassuming little eatery by the harbor that spills out onto a covered alfresco seating area where guests can relax and enjoy mellow live music. It can get crowded and slightly raucous on the weekend—mostly because of all the little kids and dogs wandering around—but it's always a good time. Try the bacalao croquettes, the ceviche nachos, the mahi-mahi mofongo, and the whole grilled red snapper. Oh, and some of the most flavorful, fresh-off-the-boat fish tacos you'll find on the island.

The city of Old San Juan was founded in 1521 by Spanish settlers. The first fortification, La Fortaleza (The Fortress), began construction in 1533 and currently serves as the governor's mansion. Castillo San Felipe del Morro, or El Morro for short, was the second fort built on the islet of what is now Old San Juan and Puerta de Tierra. El Morro's construction commenced in 1539 and finished in 1790; during those 250 years El Morro went from a promontory mounted with a cannon to a six-level fortress designed to unnerve attackers approaching from sea.
