Many of the squares in Old San Juan get crowded with tourists, especially when several cruise ships are in port. A relaxing alternative is Plaza de la Dársena. This small, waterfront park is located at the west end of the piers in San Juan Bay. The shaded benches are an ideal place to watch the comings and goings of ships and ferries. The plaza also features a gazebo to escape the sun, a water fountain and cool breezes off the water. On weekends, the square hosts a popular crafts market.
