No dock here so you take shuttle boats to the island. That was where the problem was delaying us from getting off the boat so we missed out scheduled tour. Again Terry and his crew saved the day.
We stopped at a woman's house and toured the living conditions. She was baking fresh bread and we got to taste it. THE BEST BREAD ever. Purchased 2 loafs. Next we took a driving tour into the mountains. Walked to the waterfalls, saw a new in the woods hotel that will be open soon. Learned how to make cigars, toured a farm that grows coffee, coconuts, bananas, cocoa, etc. Had the best hot chocolate (no milk added). Lunch was on the beach and consisted of salad, chicken, fruit and drinks.
We stopped at San Juan for about 5 hours on a late Sunday afternoon. Shops were closed and our tour was pretty much a joke. The stop at the fort being the only worthwhile stop.
Pretty nice trip. We did our own thing here. Found lots of tour options once you get off the ship and saved some money as well.
Toured the market place and took a trip up to the top of the mountain on the tram car.
