Concierge.com's insider take:
Its real name is Fuerte San Felipe del Morro, but locals just call this massive fortress El Morro. The name means "the promontory," and refers to its location on a rocky peninsula extending into the Atlantic. The breathtaking setting makes it the city's most popular attraction, so things can get crowded when cruise-ship passengers pack into its towers, tunnels, and turrets. (Getting here early in the day is a good idea—as well as escaping the crowds, you'll avoid the worst of the heat.) Every bit as interesting is the city's other fort, Fuerte San Cristóbal (Calle Norzagaray; 787-729-6960). The only thing it doesn't have is the crowds. Consider visiting this one, located on the eastern end of Calle Norzagaray, if you're here in high season.
