Default Private Shore Excursions - Help!

Need some help ....going to Puerto Rico on the Infinity in a few weeks.

Have never found much to do in this port. Have taken the city tour and visited the forts, now what? Has anyone taken any private excursions?

If you have, please post a quick review and infomation about the tour

Many thanks

Marion

Have you taken a tour up into the rainforest?

No, we have not been to the rain forest and would like the name of a good tour company that we can book with.

Do you know of any?

Get out and see the island, go inland to the rainforest, ect...
Do a internet search for travel/tour companies in San Juan now and line something up for when you arrive. Forget the ships excursions.

I don't do ship excursions ...that's why I am posting, looking for recommendations, haven't received any!

Searched the Internet and really didn't find too much either.

If you are the adventurous type, take a kayak trip in the Bioluminescent Bay. This can be booked at shoretripours.com. The blue green glowing bay is not visible during a full moon. Most impressive with some moonlight .Your paddles will glow, and a swim is like floating in the stars.

I checked out Shore Trips and found their rates to be very high.
