Not sure why anyone would want to leave this place. It was beautiful. Took the Puerto Rico's Favorites tour. Tour guide was full of knowledge and knew the area very well. We went to Yokahu Tower and saw beautiful views of PR, the rain forest , waterfalls. Next stop was the Fort, a lot of walking but it was well worth it.

I choose not to rate this port low because they are still recovering from the hurricane devastation. Everybody worked well to ensure the best possible experience for us as we left the ship and flew home.

San Juan is probably in my top 5 of favorite places in the world! The people, scenery, food, culture and history is amazing!

My favorite port so far. Even though we walked a very long way on the outskirts of town. It was so exhausting but so beautiful. We met a local who gave us some good history info. She was great 👍 and mostly why the port waa so great. The locals are very friendly.
Absolutely LOVED San Juan! I’d like to go back and spend more time there. Took advantage of a New and Old San Juan bus tour. We stopped at various stops along the way including El Morro. Had a delicious Mofongo for lunch and enough time to walk around and shop.
This is one of my favorite ports (in the top 3). The first time I was in Old San Juan I was focused on the sightseeing and the drinks. I couldn’t believe I didn’t eat more food since I am the ultimate foodie. This time we made sure we ate. We got some mofongo from Punto de Vista (They give you a huge serving, we definitely could’ve split it). We then stopped by Barrachina for Piña coladas. We did some shopping in between and then stopped by the food trucks to get a tripleta sandwich. I wish we had more time at this port. I can’t wait to go back for a third time! 😊
We enjoy San Juan very much but decided to visit the Barcardi Factory on our own. We winded up spending less than $10 a person to get there and back. Great visit.

We loved San Juan and would love to go back to spend more time. There is a free trolley that picks up at the port and takes you to various stops. It is hop on/ hop off. We took it to the middle of town and got off because it was crowded. We walked to the fort near the cemetary and explored it. A beautiful area! Huge grassy lawn out front with families flying kites. Both forts are close together, probably a mile or two apart. We walked to the other one but didn't have enough time to go through it. We enjoyed a cold treat from Starbucks before we got back on the ship.

Did not do an excursion. You walk right off the ship and into the town. We walked to the two forts, El Cristobal and El Morro and then down the main street, Fortelezza Street, where all the shopping and restaurants are. It's all easy to navigate. One admission of $7 each gets you into each fort. Your national park pass works there too. Every other store is a jewelry store down Fortelezz St. We felt safe walking all around. There is a Walgreens across the street as you leave the ship and a Starbucks with free wifi just up the street too. Also Barrichina is a popular restaurant, supposedly home of the first Pina Colada.

San Juan was my favorite port, a beautiful city (old San Juan). I just wish we could have stayed longer. Go to Mr. & Miss Boutique on Fortaleza St. for excellent prices on souvenirs, lower prices than other places. The owner is extremely kind.
