A walk in Condado. Fortín de San Gerónimo.

dress: Aruna Boutique necklace: Chloe&Isabel bag: hola! sunglasses: Electroshock

Fortín de San Gerónimo del Boquerón is a small fort located in the heart of the Condado Lagoon, minutes from Old San Juan. Not everybody knows about it, it’s a little hidden gem that offers beautiful views.

It was built during the 18th century and it was used by the Spanish to defend the city of San Juan from English attacks. It was a strategic place on the line with Castillo San Cristóbal.

San Gerónimo is located behind Caribe Hilton Hotel. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. San Gerónimo is owned by the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, but is managed by the Hilton.

It is a great ending to a nice walk along Condado Lagoon or after shopping in the little mall in Paseo Caribe. These beautiful views and the breezy location is perfect for a beautiful and comfortable maxi dress from Aruna boutique. I value stylish looks but I love the comfort. Simple yet elegant you can dress it up or make it a bit more casual. My statement necklace adds extra edginess to my look and location makes all look so romantic.

Keep your eyes open while in Puerto Rico every walk, every corner is beautiful. get out and explore. You will be amazed.

Fortín de San Gerónimo del Boquerón to mały fort położony w sercu Zalewu Condado, kilka minut od Starego San Juan. Nie każdy o tym wie, jest to mały, ukryty klejnot, który oferuje piękne widoki, został zbudowany w 18 wieku i był używany przez Hiszpanów do obrony miasta San Juan przed atakami z Anglii. To było strategiczne miejsce na linii z Castillo San Cristóbal.

San Gerónimo znajduje się za hotelem Caribe Hilton. Znajduje się w Krajowym Rejestrze miejsc o znaczeniu historycznym. San Gerónimo jest własnością Instytutu Kultury Portorykańskiej, ale zarządza nim Hilton. Fort ten to wspaniałe zakończenie miłego spaceru wzdłuż Laguny Condado lub po zakupach w małym centrum handlowym w Paseo Caribe.

Te cudowne widoki i lokalizacja są idealne na piękną i wygodną sukienkę maxi z butiku Aruna. Cenię stylowy wygląd, ale uwielbiam  komfort. Sukienka jest prosta, ale elegancka, możesz ją ubrać na wyjątkową okazję lub wystylizować by look był nieco bardziej swobodny. Mój naszyjnik z dodatkami dodaje dodatkowego szyku mojej stylizacji, a lokalizacja sprawia, że wszystko wygląda tak romantycznie.

W Puerto Rico trzeba mieć zawsze oczy szeroko otwarte, podczas nawet małego spacerku, każdy zakątek jest piękny. Nie spać, zwiedzać. Będziecie zdumieni.
