Default senor frogs resteraunt- san juan, puerto rico

so i'm going on the canival liberty during spring break and we decided to just walk around rather then do a shore excurssion because they're didnt seem to be that many fun ones for san juan... anyway i rembered how badly i wanted to go to senor frogs in couzmel, but we only had an hour till the ship left so we werent able to go... then i went on the site today and found out they have one in san juan!!! i'm so excited cause we're proabebly going to go shopping and then hang out at senor frogs.

so my question is dose anybody know how far senor frogs is away from the cruise ships dock??? i don't want to have to walk to far...ooo and dose anybody know the taxi rate???

You get off the ship, turn right and go down a couple of blocks, and then inland one block. I cannot remember exactly where it is located, just can get there! Very easy to do.

If you want something interesting to do, take a taxi up to El Morro, walk your way back down through Old San Juan and end up at Senor Frogs. Nice way to end the day!

Sr Frogs is located on the street behind the Sheraton Old San Juan. Was there back in December on our prenight before we got on Adventure otS. We walked in thinking it would be a lot of fun but even at 8:30-9:00, it was absolutely dead. There was one table there and the waitstaff ignored us for 5 minutes before throwing menus at us. We just walked out. We ended up just going to the burger place at the Sheraton where we were staying since we were traveling all day and getting tired after being annoyed. It was pretty good. We have heard from several people that The Parrot Club on Fortaleza is a fun place to go. You might want to try that.

I think there is a tram or a bus that will take to up to El Morro for less than the cost of a taxi. Easier to walk back down than to trudge up.

I hear the Parrot Club is great, but like so many of San Juan's nightspots (Rumba, Barrachina, Club Lazer) , I don’t think they pick up until long after you have to get back to the ship (unless you are lucky to be there a day early).

I haven't been to San Juan yet, on my way in a couple months. I did go to Senor Frogs in Nassau. If it's anything like Nassau, it's overrated. you see the same people you see on board and do the same thing you do ion the ship-eat drink and be merry. We didn't last long there.
We had no choice since we were there during the week and not much of anything else was open.

Hopefully you have a better experience in San Juan

Hi Senor Frogs is about 3 blocks from the docks if you come off the pier and turn left and then walk down the street until you see the street vendor on the side street it is around the block from there. it isn't hard to find. BUT be mindful of the time as Senor Frogs is a place where you will be having such a great time that you will lose track of time and that would suck to miss the ship. If you want to buy anything from there I would buy it as you were leaving to head back to the ship so make sure you leave yourself enough time to go to there gift shop.

We went on the canival liberty last July and we took the walking tour of Old San Juan. The tour was interesting and informative. It ended about a block from Sr. Frogs. Our ship was in port from 5pm til Midnight. So the tour ended around 9pm and we headed straight for the Frog. I think the other posters were there too early. From 9pm till 11:30pm it was really jumping. We had a blast. It's not the same as on the boat. Everyone there is ready to party. I say you should go if your ship is in port until later in the evening.

The tram is free, it only goes through the old city. Take it to both forts or stay on it and see the city. You can get on or off at any time at their desiginated stops. If you have kids get a kite and goto the El Morro fort and fly it along with all the other kids. Want something to drink goto the casino free alcohol drinks as long as your playing....note they pack a punch. The casino is within walking distance from the ship. Also walk along the water front; to the rum store; The Don Q, note it doesn't look like a rum store, there will be a guy at the door to let you in; his there to keep the kids out, and get free frozen rum drink samples; lots to choose from. It also shows you the history of the Rum production on the island. Remember to say Ohla!
