This will be our second trip to San Juan, but I can't understand why Carnival would dock there so late. The first time we arrived at 3:00 pm, did the Barcardi tour and when we came back, the town was closing up. This time the ship docks at 5:00 pm on Monday and from what I've read, everything will be closed. So my question is why would they waste the time to stop at this port so late???? Pick somewhere else where you can get there early in the day or stay later at one of your other stops would be my suggestion. We don't do the bar scene, but love to shop of site see, so for those of you who done this late stop, what's your suggestions?
There should still be some places open, and personally I am hoping to find a place with some good Reggaeton. I am going there at the end of October/beginning of November. I would just go sightseeing, enjoy the local cuisine, and maybe do a bit of shopping in what shops are open.
