I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the "Rain Forest" excursion in San Juan. Is it worth it? It's 4 1/2 hours long and we're only in San Juan for 6 hours.
5 & 13 year olds, my wife & I.
I have been to San Juan 2 times, once as a stop on a cruise and once as the departure port. In my opinion the rain forest would be the best excursion. Unless you are a young party type couple then I might suggest the Bacardi Rum factory Tour. It rained heavily while we were there so they parked us at the hospitality tent until the rain stopped and provided free samples of their product. It rained quite a while and we got to do a lot of "sampling".
With your boys, the rain forest is the best choice. I usually recommend doing excursions on your own, but in this case I might stick with the ship due to the short time in port.
Oh, did you check out Coki Beach Dive Club? What did you think?
Can this excursion to rain forest be done when the ship arrrives at 2 pm? What about the rum factory?. Lst time there when we arrived at two the only options were the general old city tour with fort or the rumba show....Took the tour but neither would appeal for nexttrip (Radiance?) What else could yo do considering the time & traffic congestion?
If you arrive at 2:00 p.m. there won't be enough time to do the rain forest tour. I don't know about the rum factory tour, however. Another suggestion would be to go to one of the hotels that would let you use their facilities and beach area. The tour desk on your ship could provide you with some information and other options.
