Rented a car for the day. Cocktails at Doliitles restaurant since it was too windy for snorkeling and kayaking. Howelton Estates for Caribelle Batik shopping( 2 kids missed the first batik shop) and chocolate making. From grinding your own cocoa nibs and cocoa butter and adding flavors( I made spicy chocolate!) to pouring into a mold to set and wrapping! Amazing experience ($60 per person- includes gift apron and chocolate bar, free drink at the drink station) Port shopping

Super fast, customs was a breeze, just showed our passports. Taxi back to our hotel we had when we arrived the day before boarding the ship in Puerto Rico. The Doubletree held our luggage in storage and gave us use of the hotel facilities ( pool, lobby chairs, hammocks, spa, restrooms, etc. for the day at no charge til our afternoon flight back to San Diego.
