Low-cost housing projects in San Juan are called “caserios.” These are run-down, cement structures situated close to one another that have balconies similar to low-end American apartment buildings. According to police reports, the majority of violent crimes are committed in these areas. One of the scary places in San Juan that even wise locals avoid is the Louis Lloren Torres caserio. Violent crime rates and drug arrests are particularly high in this caserio. Fortunately, this project is not located near any frequently visited tourist areas.
