Puerto Rico is full of so much beauty! With the colorful streets of Old San Juan, Waterfalls in El Yunque, Salt Flats in Cabo Rojo, the Instagrammable places in Puerto Rico are endless! Here are some of the most photo-worthy places to visit in Puerto Rico to experience and photograph!

We were able to visit all these places in just 4 days. With more time, I’d recommend taking a road trip around Puerto Rico to see them all.

Do not trespass on private property or anywhere else that says do not to enter. This will ensure we can all continue to enjoy Puerto Rico’s photo-worthy treasures!

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico Instagrammable Places

First, let’s look at these top 10 Instagrammable places in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. All 10 places are within walking distance since Old San Juan is very walkable. If you get hungry throughout the way, you can find some great eats in Old San Juan in our Puerto Rico Itinerary.

The Black Puerto Rican Flag and Mural 

This mural can be found on an old abandoned building and one of the top Instagramable places in Old San Juan and all of Puerto Rico!

The flag was painted black to show Puerto Rico is standing up to the fight and to take action upon the collapse of the educational system, healthcare workforce, and more!  Down this block, you will also find tons of picturesque streets.

Address: Found on Calle De San Jose between Calle De Sol and Calle De Sebastian.

Fortaleza Street

This is the famous Instagramable street in Puerto Rico that had all the umbrellas, however, they were taken down during protests during our 4 days in Puerto Rico.

Umbrellas or not, the street is still one of Puerto Rico’s most Instagrammable places nonetheless. The umbrellas should be back up now. The umbrellas hung right in front of La Fortaleza (the Fortress).

Update: I believe there is now a giant Puerto Rico Flag hanging down the street!

Address: 63 C. Fortaleza, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico

Caleta de las Monjas

Caleta de las Monjas is another really cute street that leads right to the water! Nearby you will also be close to Save a Gato, where they take care of Old San Juan’s stray cats. You will likely see a ton of kitties hanging out around this area.

Plazuela La Rogativa

This scenic viewpoint gives you a 180-degree look of San Juan. In the view, you will see the crystal blue ocean, the Fortress, El Yunque, and a very interesting sculpture from 1971. It’s easily one of the underrated Instagrammable places in Puerto Rico that also offers an amazing place to watch the sunset!

Another really photo-worthy colorful street found in Old San Juan is Calle de la Luna street. We were lucky to just stumble upon this street. I really like how you can see the contrast between the old and new Old San Juan!

Plaza Del Quinto Centenario 

A charming little plaza that was built in honor of Columbus’ first voyage. You will find a tall clay monument and a splash area (which comes in handy from the high humidity!) This plaza is also close to El Morro Fort!

Address: Calle del Cristo, San Juan, 00926, Puerto Rico

El Morro Fort

One of the two forts that used to protect Old San Juan from Pirates and other intruders! El Morro Fort is huge with a giant grass lawn, iguanas, and tons of viewpoints of the Caribbean sea.

Not only is it a top Instagrammable place, but El Morro Fort is also a must-see in general when visiting Puerto Rico!

Instagrammable places in El Yunque National Forest, Puerto Rico

Juan Diego Creek

I would start off early at Juan Diego Creek which is a cute little waterfall with a swimmable natural pool. Parking is limited here with a time limit of 30 minutes (although I am not sure how heavily it is inforced).

Angelito Trail

This trail can be found before going through the park gate entrance. There are a ton of really cool rocks and a refreshing stream. It’s the perfect spot to hang out in El Yunque and the area just screams photograph me!

La Coca Falls

Another waterfall right by the gate entrance of El Yunque. We could pretty easily climb through the rocks but use caution as everything is slippery!

Instagrammable Places in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico

Located on the West Coast of Puerto Rico, Cabo Rojo is notable for its pink salt flats, desert-like landscape, and an overall country vibe.

Salinas de Cabo Rojo – Pink Salt Lakes

These Salt flats were one of our favorite places to photograph! It won’t be long before they become the new highly desired Instagramable places within Puerto Rico.

When visiting, please make sure to not touch the water or salt mounds which can negatively affect the environment!

Address: PR-301, Boquerón, Cabo Rojo 00622, Puerto Rico

Instagrammable Places in Ponce, Puerto Rico

While I would not stop in Ponce just for this photo, but if you find yourself traveling through Ponce, be sure to check out the Villaronga House restored by the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture!

Additionally, there are a lot of colorful streets and a very unique fire station in the center of Ponce. They even have tours to walk through the station.
