We had to wait past the given time to start. The speaker system on the "bus" was not very good, so it was hard to understand everything the guide said. The views and to experience the whole island was enjoyable though.
We very much enjoyed this port. We wanted to see El Morro fort which we understood was a long walk, and it was. A very hot humid day all uphill to the fort. The fort itself was very interesting with a small entrance fee. It again required lots of steps down into certain areas, but well worth the effort. The walk back down toward the ship was more enjoyable with many shops and restaurants. The sidewalks are very narrow with brick streets. We ate at a courtyard restaurant which was very quaint and nice. There are many name brand stores in addition to the stereotypical souvenir shops. The port area itself seemed relatively new and easy getting on and off.
A very memorable tour up to the top of the mountain to the home of the original banana daquiri and then back down to the shopping area. On the way up the mountain there was lots of road construction and we are riding in the back of what is basically a pickup truck with seats and a roof, we end up hitting some cement barrier and blow two tires. Our driver stops, looks at it, and then continues on with the whole tour driving on two flats. There were no issues resulting from this and it made the tour one to remember. Once we were dropped off in the shopping district we had a good lunch at Gladys' and walked the main street. Lots and lots of jewelry shops! Then you had to flag one of many shuttles (pickups) back to the port.
