Our group of 9 can't wait to return to San Juan. We walked to Starbucks then walked to Castillo de San Cristobal. We took kites for the kids to fly in the grassy area before entering the National Historic Site. The cost is $7 for adults and free for kids under 15 or so. The offer the Jr. Ranger program. If you have a kid, they can complete age appropriate activities in a booklet and get a little badge. It's a nice little plastic souvenir....that's also free! We would have loved to visit the other fort as well, but there just wasn't enough time in port and our kids were too tired to take the 30 min walk. Some family members who accompanied us on the cruise decided to take a driving tour. It was also booked once arriving in port; not through the ship. They were really happy with it. Someday we hope to return and get to see more of this amazing city! Read Less

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very nice. He explained everything to us when we asked our questions. He really seemed to enjoy this part of his job.

San Juan is very crowded. After we dropped our bags at the ship, we took a cab back into Old San Juan. I wanted to go to the Chocobar Cortes, but our cab driver told us we wouldn't have enough time - it takes so long. My friend wanted to see the street with the umbrellas, so that's where we got dropped off. Took some pics, bought some sodas & chips at the grocery, then caught a cab back to the ship. Read Less

So much to do in San Juan. Definitely recommend the castle del morro if you have not been before. We took a cab ($14 each way) to the public beach (Ocean Park). Lots of shops and booths near the port as well.

We walked around and ate dinner at a restaurant called Punto de Vista, which is a little rooftop restaurant in Old San Juan. Was a little disappointed we didn't have more daylight to do more in San Juan, though, as we got there at

Found a short tour from locals once off the ship. $15 pp and learned a lot about PR and its history. Tour guide made many stops for photo ops. Nice tour to get a feel for PR.

San Juan is a favorite stop and we've been coming here for many years. We just like to wander around Old San Juan visiting familiar sites. Lots of shops to browse around in and the bars on Calle Cristo have cheap drinks. The old forts are very interesting for first time visitors, as is the old cathedral with the tomb of Juan Ponce de Leon. Read Less

Did the short walk from the ship to the two forts. The forts are run by the U.S. Park Service and only admission gets you in both forts.

The old town area of San Juan is really charming, except for the homeless junkies spitting on every surface. There is a visible police presence so the place feel reasonably safe for tourists. Watch out for nutcase taxi drivers if you get one at the airport - ours drove us at over 80 mph. We were thrown all over the cab. He kept offering us pharmaceuticals "anything you want". He wanted to store our luggage at his house - not kidding. We convinced him to stop to check on something, got out, paid him enough cash to shut him up and took our luggage. The food is very inexpensive - we had two very good coffees and two massive breakfast sandwiches for US $11 total. Read Less

This cruise port is great for walking. There are lots of small shops and coffee cafés tucked here and there. There are lots of activities around the local squares and the forts are interesting and beautiful right on the coastline. We found the feral cats at "Save a Gato" and spent an hour feeding them treats we brought from home and petting these sweeties. There are taxis available and the locals set up quaint little booths all along the Cruise Waterfront area. This is a great port to just walk and look. Read Less
