San Juan the pits?
I love pulling into San Juan from the sea, it feels like you have gone into a time warp when you pass the modern city and go round to the Harbor, where you pass El Morro, the fort that guards San Juan. I expected Johnny Depp to come swinging across the bow..
Old San Juan is all cobbled streets so very quaint, lots of good shopping and places to eat. I'll be back there in August.
Never been to Samana.
