Natatorium San Juan

Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

The pools are located in a building under roof, but without walls.
There is a $2.00 flat fee for parking.
NOTE: As of November, 2014, requirements to access the pool are: two passport-sized photographs; a completed waiver and medical information sheet; and taking a "swim test". Swim tests are done only Monday through Thursday between 10 AM and 3 PM. [Obviously the timing is set for the convenience of the bureaucrats in charge, rather than the public that is supposed to be served. Eds.]

Facility Reviews

A first class facility. Open air with a roof. The US Masters LCM nationals were held here in 2010.
Great facility. I swam here three times in early August and never had trouble getting a lane. Seems to be set up long course most of the time, if not all. Even if a team is in the water, they hold some lanes open for lap swimming . Lane lines, backstroke flags, clock, etc. all in place. There's a roof, but the building is open on one side, so it felt like outdoor swimming. $2 for parking, that's it. [September, 2013]
You do need to get an annual pass, which means a medical examination, photos, etc. (They did let me come once by signing a waiver.) They're very friendly people - they even co-opted me into swimming with the Masters group. There were two or three swimmers per lane at 10 AM, but it was empty by noon. The pool is closed on Sundays, but has long hours the rest of the week. [March, 2016]
