Beware most of the reviews and all the pictures are actually of Plaza del Quinto Centario which is actually adjacent to Plaza San Jose. Plaza San Jose is a basic square with San Jose Church (currently under renovation) and a statue of Juan Ponce.

As part of your walking tour of Old San Juan - This stop in the Plaza San Jose is nice for a rest to see the totem and fountain. Plan on a quick stop.

Focal point is the beautiful tall totem pole. Not much in the area. Really dark at night. No lights nearby. Would go during light hours to appreciate the area.

Great for outdoor activities. Children love it. The only thing is that there is no near bathroom. Private Parking available.

We visited this landmark while strolling the streets of Old San Juan last week looking for a nice place to eat. The Totem Pole is a unique statue that commemorates the 500 anniversary of Columbus discovering the New World.
