San Germán is a city in Puerto Rico. It's best known for its Spanish colonial architecture.
From San Juan, follow Autopista 52 (Expreso Luis A. Ferre) towards Ponce. At the PR-52 terminus, follow PR-2 for about 25 miles towards Mayaguez. Exit at the PR-122 / Casto Perez Ave. exit on PR-2.
There are limited transit options, but the central district is easily navigable on foot. Driving is difficult with lots of traffic in mid-day.
San Germán's main sight is its colonial architecture, all narrow, twisty alleyways and Spanish buildings in pastel colors, some crumbling, some newly repaired. The old city is centered around the leafy plazas of Parque de Santo Domingo and Plaza Francisco Mariano Quiñones.
If you've made it this far, don't miss the beaches of the southern coast.
