Overview Of The Port Of San Juan

About San Juan
San Juan is the capital city of Puerto Rico, an island in the western Caribbean.

Interesting places to visit include the historic sites of Old San Juan, such as El Morro, San Cristobal Fort and La Fortaleza or visit the Catedral de San Juan, which dates back to 1540.

The Bacardi Rum Factory is also a popular trip. There are lovely landscaped grounds, an open-air pavilion for Bacardi-influenced drinks, a gift shop and a tour that includes an interesting film on the history and learning about rum distillation.

El Yunque is the only rain forest designated as a U.S. National Forest. Located about an hour south of San Juan, you'll see waterfalls, ferns and wildflowers along the marked trails.

Gamblers are catered for with casinos located in many of the large hotels.

The nearby areas of Condado and Isla Verde are approximately a 10-minute taxi ride away from the cruise pier, here you will find stretches of beaches alongside high rise hotels.

Local dishes include 'bacalaitos' (crunchy cod fritters), 'surullitos' (sweet plump cornmeal fingers) and 'empanadillas' (crescent-shaped turnovers filled with lobster, crab, conch, or beef). Soup is a popular starter and coconut is used in most desserts.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock in the Calle Marina, an easy walk into centre of the old city of San Juan. Taxis and minibuses (called "omnibuses") which travel along the main routes, are at the dock.

A free trolley is also available to take visitors round San Juan.
