Default Late arrival in San Juan

Since the Victory docks at 5 PM in San Juan, will there be many stores open in Old San Juan ? What to do that late in the day ?

Nancy, last time we were there the stores closed around 8, If I remember right..

Years ago, stops in San Juan, for the most part, did not arrive late, like they do now..I don't care for it, to be honest...

Thanks for the reply, Trip. I asked because of a post I read elsewhere that said that most stores were NOT open and most closed at 5. I was in Old San Juan decades ago, loved it, and am anxious to spend som time there shopping. I'm gonna be SOOOOOOOOOO disappointed if it is mostly closed !

I noticed that most of the time when visits San Juan that the port times are horrible. 3 or 5 PM to midnight?

We're in San Juan from 5 to midnight in March. One of the reasons we chose that itinerary is the Bioluminescent Lagoon kayak tour. You can, of course, only do this after dark. It's a 2-hour bus ride, but even then it's apparently one of the Must Do tours in PR. I had some friends do it a few years ago and they raved about it...
