What would you suggest a couple in their early 50s doing from 5:00 p.m. until midnight for fun? Any ideas on restaurants or entertainment? We will be going the week after Thansgiving on the Carnival Victory.
Hi Karenj, not many options at that time but the ship docks in the old city, so just walk around the old town.
There are some stores open, places to eat and drink but the best thing is to walk around and be by the fort as the sun sets.
If you need additioanl information or maybe a tour company that is offering a special tour , you can find one at www.puertoricoplanner.com click on sightseeing and then on expert.
have a great time
Addition to original question: How safe is San Juan after dark? Is it okay to just wander around? Do we have to worry about where we would wander?
Condbahia- I have found info on an evening history tour of the city, and a ghost tour that both sould like a good way to learn about the town in a group setting. We are also in SJ from 5 to 12- not till January, tho!
We have not inherited the earth from our ancestors. We have only borrowed it from our children.
A group of us will be in San Juan in January on my Birthday. We are planning on walking around Old San Juan (I've been before), but would like to stop for drinks and maybe an early dinner somewhere to celebrate. Any suggestions on restaurants would be greatly appreciated.
We have been to Old San Juan numerous times and have never had a bad experience. There are numerous outstanding restraurants within three-four blocks of the cruise ship. They are never crowded before 7 or 8. Also, there is a lovely waterfront walk -- when you leave the cruise ship walk to the left about three blocks. There are street vendors, entertainers (on weekends at least), and a lovely fountain along the walk. It stretches to El Moro and provides lovely sunsets and photo ops. There are also carriage rides which are reasonable and give you a 'horse's eye view' of Old San Juan. Enjoy!
