San Juan
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Puerto Rico- Rough seas to snorkel the day we were they, we stuck to OLD San Juan, take the trolley for free and see Cristobal fort, the architecture of the city and the many artisan market stalls spread out everywhere. Good lunch at Lupis. Best things on sale here is the original artwork and tshirts ! Cabs are usually 350.00 pp each way. Try the Monfongo for lunch !! Old San Juan is Beautiful !

St. Maarten
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Port of call, St Marteen ( my all time favorite- check out Maho beach ( for the airplanes landing literally right above your head) and Little Bay for snorkeling and of course the shopping on front street and back street, haggle, they expect it ! Take the water taxi to save time back to the boat, there is alot of walking here for shopping) DONT FORGET YOUR REAL GERMAN CHOCOLATE HERE AND YOUR GUAVABERRY ! Islanders are very nice, taxis are scary but fun at the same time, about 7.00 pp one way. Beautiful jewlerly, dont forget to buy your Larimar stones , it's the stone of the Carribean. Duty free shopping !!

I will keep coming back to this island again and again until I have explored it all !

Great Stirrup Cay

Great Stirrup Cay- HOT< HOT< HOT. BEAUTIFUL place but not much shade (they have been planting more palm trees to fix this, however wear WATERPROOF sunscreen) Snorkeling out at the rocks is great, lots of jellyfish but for some reason this variety does not sting. Lunch was great, souvenirs are too high priced. DRINK< DRINK< DRINK not only water but some gatoraide too to replace the salts and sugars you lose in the sun as many ppl were falling out. Lots and Lots of sunscreen but all in all a very pretty place, nice amenities, beautiful beach and water. A great day to relax and unwind before heading back to Miami.
