SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Caribe Hilton one of San Juan, Puerto Rico's most renowned beachfront hotels, is celebrating the recent unveiling of the multimillion dollar Paseo Puerta de Tierra pedestrian trail, which connects Caribe Hilton with historic Old San Juan. Now, guests of Caribe Hilton can walk, run or bike to historic Old San Juan - no car needed. This on-foot accessibility to one of Puerto Rico's most beloved neighborhoods enables Caribe Hilton the opportunity to offer guests a new experience that truly connects them with the local culture, and the hotel aims to celebrate this newfound connectivity.

From April 1 to Dec. 15, 2017, guests staying at the San Juan resort can reserve one of Caribe Hilton's "Walk this Way" kits - a package filled with bottled water, sunscreen, a map of the trail and the picture-perfect spots along the way, as well as a mini instant camera to capture the beauty of the city and the sea while strolling along.  

Paseo Puerta de Tierra is revitalizing the stretch of land along the sea that runs from Caribe Hilton to Old San Juan. Open spaces, viewpoints to take in the breathtaking seascape, and signs that explain different points in the region's cultural history dot the path. While connecting two distinct regions of the city, the trail is becoming a destination unto itself, and Caribe Hilton guests now enjoy prime access to this new "terrace to the sea."

"Since opening nearly 68 years ago, Caribe Hilton has honored both tradition and history, while also providing experiences befitting the modern traveler - and today's travelers want to be immersed in the local culture of the destinations they are visiting," said Pablo Torres, general manager, Caribe Hilton. "Caribe Hilton's location at the base of the Paseo Puerta de Tierra trail is ideal for that immersion and our 'Walk this Way' kit provides all of the tools our guests need for a truly memorable stroll to Old San Juan."
