San Juan
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

San Juan: we arrived to San Juan around 3pm. We didn’t take any tours; we went to the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. It cost 3$ to get in, to walk around. It’s amazing to check it out! Its about 25min walk from the cruise and it’s not too completed to get there. You just have to continue walking to the left side and once you get to the gate, you have to go through. Do not continue walking down because it’s a dead end and you will have to walk back. You will see a sign once your reach the gate its right after big tree. After checking the castle, we took a different route through the city. They had marshalls  and it wasn’t too bad. They have a Starbucks with free WIFI. Its on the Punto de Vista street. They also had Senior Frogs and pharmacy once you get of the cruise

We arrived at 8am, once we arrived we were the 1st people to get off the cruise. We took taxi to the Coki beach, 15 min away and 20$ (10$ for each person). IF YOU LOVE snorkeling, this is the beach you need to check. The water was crystal clear, calm and full of fishes. We took a piece of bread with us to feed them, so they were around us and they are beautiful. I would recommend going there asap once you dock because after 12pm its packed and you can’t leave your bags (as many locals around). We didn’t eat on the beach, we took apples and bananas from the cruise and filled up the bottle with water before we left. But you have servers from the bars going around offering you drinks. We rented beds for 10$ for both.

we arrived at 8 am and we left to the Mohu (Sunseat beach) were plans fly over. The beach is destroyed by the waves and there were no flights until 12pm. So don’t go there before 12pm bc its 20$ waste and there is nothing else to do there. We didn’t knew that and we left to Little Divi beach closer to the cruise dock. You could walk there from the cruise 30min walk or so but is beautiful going there. We could have just go to the great Bay area(once you get of the cruise you take a water taxi 2$) but it was packed as 5 cruises arrived at the same time. Also, Great bay beach is the heart of duty free shopping Broadway street so it was always busy. Little Divi located on the resort but other people can visit. The water was little bit rough on both sides Great Bay and Little Divi because of the wind. Coming back to the cruise we walked through the duty free area, there are many diamonds stores, we didn’t buy anything but it was interesting to see. It very easy to go back to the cruise, there are many signs directing you to the cruise.
