If you like to take photos this is a great place for it. Right on the ocean and below the Fort. If you like visiting cemeteries you'll enjoy this one. Nice.
Eerie but beautiful cemetery by the sea. Photography gold. It is located right next to El Morro, so as you're walking there you can see this cemetery on the way. I did not go down through it, but the birds eye view from the top was enough to see the entire grounds.
This cemetery has a perfect spot so close to the ocean. I think the broken grave I saw should have the garbage removed and the bones covered back up. Right next to the Fort so I takes no time to walk down and have a quick look.

A photographer's dream location. Definitely worth the... More
This cemetery is beautiful, with white stone headstones. It's sits by the ocean, and the view looking down to it is gorgeous with the water in the background. Gomez from The Addams family is buried here. Nice place to stop!
Between the two forts, El Morro and San Cristobal, lies the magnificent Santa María Madgalena de Pazzis cemetery, the final resting place for the country’s most notable figures since the 1800s.
