There are plans by the government of Puerto Rico to build a 2-mile boardwalk, starting from El Morro Fort in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. The exact route is yet to be determined, but it will include a number of landmarks near El Morro Fort, at the entrance of the San Juan Bay.
El Morro Fort was built in 1600 by Spain, to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the city of Old San Juan from foreign enemies. El Morro is a World Heritage Site and a National Historic Site in the U.S. National Park Service. El Morro Fort gets over two million visitors a year.
Government officials did not disclosed how much the project would cost or when construction would begin.
