What shore excursions would you recommend for evenings in San Juan(Puerto Rico), either the ship ones or the non-ship(which are often cheaper)? I will be in port on a Monday, and the ship is the Carnival Liberty.
there are a couple of pretty cool things to do at night in San Juan.
Have heard good things about the haunted city walking tour, and Bioluminesent Bay. Otherwise at night its pretty much casinos and shows at the major hotels.
I have been considering the Bioluminescent Bay, the sunset walking tour, or the night time horseback ride beside El Yunque. Tell me more of this haunted tour. I would be very interested in yet another encounter with the spirit world(long story but my family seems to be a magnet for activity).
You can always visit El Morro if you are there before they close, some breathtaking views and a lot of history. You can even hike up there, seems the traffic can be bad in Old San Juan, almost quicker walking.
If you get there early enough take a city tour through Old and New San Juan. Just got back and the city tour is a must. You can book the tour in port for around $25 a person. Make sure it takes you to the Capital in Old San Juan this is a must see. Much smaller but it puts the U.S. Capital to shame. Also, if you want inexpensive food go to Old San Juan and there is a restaurant near the main square with a name I don't remember but it ends with the Roman numerals XX. They have the best Cuban sandwiches in the world.
Make everything in life fun. You make the experience fun not those around you.
We have been to san juan a couple of times and anything you could see on a tour you really can explore yourself. Old san juan is nice because you can walk anywhere. They also have tons of cool little bars that always have live bands playing salsa type music that you can dance to if you like that type of thing.
I heard there is a casino within walking distance from the docks. Can anyone tell me if they have been there or how far it is to walk there. i have a couple of our guys have bad legs and cant walk far. would we need a taxi? Not sure of the name of it either. Anyone out there know??
