Its actually a money saver to either rent a car and drive, or find a shuttle service. You should also check with your cruiseline, they offer transfers. A taxi is pretty pricey.
Donna, I hate to "horn" in on some one's question, but I have a question to ask you, or any other member who may be able to help me. I will be sailing on Serenade in September out of Puerto Rico with a friend who will be showing up a few days earlier than me. I have a pre-night reservation, but he was wondering if there is a place where he could possibly "store"his luggage until I get to PR and we get the room. Preferably in downtown PR. Again, sorry for horning in on another person's question. Thanks.
Years ago, there used to be a crown and Anchor rest spot in San Juan, you could sit and relax and store luggage while you explore the city....That is no longer....I'm wondering if the hotel that you will be at would let him drop his luggage off before you get there, worth checking into....Just a thought, hope it works out, no fun lugging luggage all over the place. The airport is too far, but they do have lockers...
Although I can't speak specifically about PR I do know any city we've been to have either taken our luggage for us if we are too early to get our room or have kept it for us if we aren't flying until the evening but had to check out of the hotel.
