San Juan
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We took a taxi from the Pan-American pier to El Morro Fort. It was a free day at the fort and there was a re-enactment which was great to see. We had a great time walking around Old San Juan. We stopped at the Convento Hotel for "happy hour" drinks.

We rented a car in advance for pick up at the pier, Coastal Rentals was very good to use.

We first went to Orient Beach and took up a spot at "Orange Fever" good price. Then we went to Loterie Farm where our kids went "zip-lining" and we had a "tapis" lunch at the TreeHouse Lounge. What a great place to go.

We walked up to Fort Louis in Marigot..what a view. Stopped at Serafina's bakery for wonderful croissants.

Our son requested to go see the planes at Maho beach. What fun they had in the waves as the planes came in overhead. We enjoyed drinks at the Sunset bar.

We had pre-booked an excursion with Papa Bear "air force one" . After a wonderful tour he took us to Sapphire Beach. After a quick walk around Havensight we boarded the Summit.

We got of the ship early to take a walk around town. There is not much to see. We met up with our kids to take an open air taxi to Cane Garden Beach. BEAUTIFUL!

We rented lounge chairs and enjoyed the beach for a few hours. We walked to the Callwood Distillery which was very interesting.

Our ship was almost 2 hours late disembarking which could have put a wrench in our plans. We bought a 2 day bus/ferry pass for 20.00. Our plan was to get to the Chrystal Caves before the last tour at 4:30. WE just made it, others did not.

We went to the Swizzle Inn for a pitcher of there famous punch. We headed to City Hall for the "night in the Arts" with a wonderful free art exhibit and cocktails/appetizer reception.

We spent the evening at the Frog and Onion pub. We took a seat at the bar and ended up having a wonderful conversation with two local taxi drivers.

Our second day in Bermuda started off cloudy. We took the bus to Somerset were we started walking up the "Railway Trail" we stopped off at Fort Scaur for wonderful views of the harbour. We continued walking down the trail and saw a wonderful "Moongate" . As a young man was getting in his car I asked him if he could take our picture. We told him we were now on our way to "Gibb's lighthouse" by bus. He told us that he had a song on MTV called "Bermuda Is" (U tube it). As he began to drive away he lowered his window and said " I will take you there". He took us right to the parking lot the lighthouse. For 2.00 we bought a ticket and walked up the many stairs to a spectacular view of the Harbour. We walked the 20 minutes to Horseshoe Beach, all the way to Warwick Long Beach.

We went back to the Dockyard to wander around under clear skies and had drinks and a snack at "Bone Fish".

9/11 Memorial Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Great way to end the trip and get to the airport. Had a wonderful Harbour cruise , walk around Battery Park. We had tickets for the new 9/11 Memorial and we had 30 minutes to walk around (it was enough time and enabled us more time for Wall St). Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.
