There are no good dive sites specifically from Old San Juan, but you can find a few dive operators in the greater San Juan area.  Condado is where most divers head because there is an easy beach-entry dive.  Those who are at a higher skill level may want to consider heading elsewhere. 

You'll find one dive operator, a dive shop, and a small number of dive sites to choose from.
