I have heard of a trolley that runs in San Juan. I want to tour the forts but I want to do it on our own so we can stay as long as we want. Do these trolleys go to the forts? If so, how often?
I'm not sure of the trolley, but I have walked from the dock to the fort on my last visit. Old San Juan is not very large and most things are with in a 10 min walk. San Juan can get hot and humid depending on the time of year you go. (Im from Los Angeles so to me it was humid) The Doc we used was rite in the heart of Old San Juan so a short walk or taxi to the fort.
The fort was great to see and worth the time. I enjoyed San Juan on a port stop and the time I spent a few days there before a cruise. The city is nice, pretty clean, has friendly people and great food. Enjoy your visit.
We have been to San Juan 5 times before and see the one for on the way in. I always wanted to tour it but we were always doing something else. We have walked all over town a couple times. I also want to do the other fort. How long did it take you to do the one?
