La Perla, the tiny ocean side neighborhood over the North Wall and Norzagaray Street, is best viewed from the El Morro Fort Lawn/Cemetery tunnel entrance. This sleepy slum neighborhood coexists quietly in the bustling shadow of Old San Juan, and is home to surfers, artists and tourism workers. Breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and true community pride are the accolades of this fascinating area that seems to be frozen in time. It is not advisable to enter La Perla either on foot or in a vehicle; it is known for a high rate of illegal activities, and there is no police presence there.
