Your port hours are perfect for a kayak trip to Bioluminescent bay in nearby Fajardo. Check the fullness of the moon on the date of your visit. The less moonlight, or more cloud cover, the better. I would however due to the distances involved, book this one through the ship.

Default gardens

I was able to find a tour to the Botanical Gardens with countrysiudetourspr@yahoo.com they picked us up at the cruise ship and we went through areas of San Juan. We were amazed at how big this city really is,. We saw the financial district and the market place. We stopped there for a quick walk. The tour guide recommended a fruit glass at one of the food stands. It had mango, watermelon, papaya, bananas and pineapple for about $1.50. Then we went to the Gardens for a nice 30 minute walk in the area where we saw bamboos and a bunch of other tropical vegetation. The guide said this is like the rain forest. We fed the fish , turtles and ducks. Saw a couple iguanas and a couple of birds. The we drove to the university, what a pretty campus, its like a garden all by itself. We were then able to make it back to the old city for a short tour of the area. Had time for shopping and walked back to the ship. I dont know why they dont offer this tour on the ship.? What can I tell you-great tour.

Default a folkloric show

If you are visiting San Juan on a Tuesday, make sure you visit Fort San Cristobal in old San Juan at 6 pm so you can see a neat folkloric show for the same $3 p/p entrance fee.
Go at 4 pm so you can see the fort and stay for the show.
Here is a short preview:

Default san juanoff the beaten path

There are many persons that have visited the island of Puerto Rico and have seen old san Juan and the rain forest
There are persons that are looking for new tours that have something of eco-tourism, culture and architecture.
There is a two hour new tour that does that, its called the San Juan off the Beaten Path.
A tour that takes you to the Botanical Garden, the University, the market place and still have time for the old city.
For more information see signature.
