San Juan
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+

Not much there, poor shopping, and nothing great to see.

Been there before, a beautiful island, worth seeing if this is your first visit here.

Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

The best port on the itinery. We got a special tour together and hired our own taxi and driver. The Dutch part is great - clean and enjoyable. The French is poor, dirty and lots of shacks. Exception is Oriental Beach and the "Clothing optional" Beach. Nice. Not for children. Much too see here if you get my drift. Not for the blue nose crowd.

Tour was a rip off. Driver spoke no English, his tour master (son) spoke only a few words. Every stop was a encounter with pan handlers. The shopping part lasted about 10 minutes. When we returned to the ship the driver wanted more money than we had agreed to. He did not get it. The island is extremely poor. EXTREMELY POOR with little too offer yet you need to see how some people must have to live. You will not forget it. Most live on the street with dogs and chickens and it seems that no one works.
