San Juan
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Since the ship does not arrive until 3pm, it is difficult to plan much in San Juan. We hiked up to one of the old Spanish forts, run by the US National Park Service, and toured on our own. We like being able to stop at the CVS just off the pier for any last minute things we might need.

Catamaran Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Following a relatively short ride to the boat, we embarked on a 30 minute or so trip to a nearby island where we were given snorkeling equipment and allowed about 60 minutes. The tour operator described the area well, including where not to go, and gave a quick orientation to the equipment. A beach was available, but it was very small and not really designed for spending time on. The operator was reasonably well prepared for emergencies, with a large first aid kit, including an AED device.

Having been to this port before, we simply caught a cab to the beach. We got to Orient Beach shortly after 8am when very few people were out. We walked up the length of the beach to get the lay of the land, and settled on a pair of chairs and umbrella for a few hours of sun time. The cost of $20 included the chairs, umbrella, 2 drinks and use of the facilities. About 11:30, when the ship tours began to arrive and it began to be crowded, we headed back to the ship for lunch and time out of the sun.
