San Juan
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
We were docked from 3pm-10pm. We did not plan anything for that day, so we walked around Downtown area, shopped, and walked to the National Fort. We were on the ship by 8:00PM, as most of the shops DT were closed by 7PM. Many jewelry stores here, and cigar shops. Also has a Dooney & Bourke and Coach OUTLET. Only gave it a 3, because I didn't feel we had enough time in San Juan to explore more...

We booked a private tour with Joyce Prince Tours, and she took us around the island. Went to Orient Beach, Maho Beach (where you can see the planes land right by the beach)... Had lunch on the French side, in Marigot. She caters to what you are looking for in a tour, whether you want beaches, or views, or shopping, or marina life, etc. It was great, very nice. She dropped us off around 3PM, where my husband and I walked around the Front Street and did some jewelry shopping.

Absolutely gorgeous. We had no intentions of booking any tours, but as we left the ship, and walked around the port shops, we were offered a tour by a local taxi driver - $25/person to see 4 stops, and a drop off at a beach location. It was, OK... I don't think I'd do it again, although I did get some really amazing photos from Paradise Point. Taxi took us to Coki Beach, we saw Magan's Bay, but we asked her to drop us off at another beach, a little more secluded. Wonderful day, stayed in the clear waters for the majority of the time, and took a taxi back to port around 3:30PM. Taxi prices are set by the government - it is $9/person to Coki Beach, $8/person to Magan's Bay. $22/person to Paradise Point.
