Oh, San Juan...you DID not disappoint! Your heat was on a whole other level but those hlumbrellas, forts and cobble stone streets will forever be some etched into my memories!
So beautiful. Another place I will be returning to. As much husband says I use cruises to test drive places and then if I love it I know I can go back for a land vacation with mon cruising family.
Love love love Old San Juan! Spending three days here before our cruise. Everyone we run into is overly helpful and friendly. Streets are very safe and easy to walk on even at night! We like to stop in the out-of-the-way bakeries and cafes to eat authentic Puerto Rican food. We have not been disappointed! There is so much Beauty on this island. You have to be willing to explore. This is our fourth visit to Old San Juan and we still are discovering new things we have not seen. By far this is the best cruise port in the Caribbean! Make sure you go to El panedero Bakery for handmade pastries and breads. Ligio will take very good care of you! I do not understand the people who do not like this port or think it is dangerous or unsafe in any way. There are police patrolling the city making sure their city is safe. Perhaps the reviews are reviewing San Juan and not Old San Juan?
San Juan is another of our favorite ports. There is just so much to do there, and the people are incredibly friendly. We have done a couple of different city tours, a rum tour, and explored on our own as well. Every time we are there we always make time to eat at Raices, one of our absolute favorite restaurants anywhere.
I love San Juan. It is a place where you can walk around the town for hours and not get bored. It is beautiful. From cruise dock it was easy to get to downtown.
We walked around Old San Juan. This wasn't our first time visiting here. If you haven't ever been you need to go to the Fort and see all the historical sites the free trolley offers.

Really enjoyed Puerto Rico. From the architecture to colorful buildings , to music in the streets, to friendly people, and forts. We would like to go back to see the rainforest and spend a couple days there.
We loved the old town part of San Juan. Walking around and visiting the forts and the cat sanctuary was awesome. The food in the local restaurants was great! Stay away from the chain ones and stay with local ones.
When we were there, it was hard to tell that a hurricane had hit them. That is until it was dark. At night the only lights we saw were some street lights. Had a great time walking around. The people have great spirits... God bless them!
My favorite port of all! A lot of history here. Took an island tour. Old San Juan is stunning. Love Fortaleza st. With the umbrellas. Went to a little place and ate lunch and had mojitos! They are a must and so is the mofongo. I had the shrimp and chicken and my husband had the pork. It was all so delicious! I can’t wait to go back to San Juan.
