Default In-Transit Only?

I was looking to pre-reserve some excursions in San Juan for our upcoming cruise in June and was interested in the El Yunque Rainforest Drive, but it is (In-Transit Only). What does the in transit mean?

The excursion is from 10am-3:30pm and we are in port from 10am - 11pm. Is it because we arrive right at 10am?

Usually it means that it drops people back off at the airport.

We rented a car for the four of us to go all the way out to El Yunque, mostly because it was the end of the cruise and it was the cheapest way for us to do it. We rented from a local agency and they picked us up at the port. It's a nice ride, but remember that El Yunque does involve quite a bit of walking, since it is a park.

Thanks for the tip! I'll either look for another excursion or just go on our own.

Noticed you are from Montreal--Go HABS!

Found it... we used http://www.acerentacar.com/landing/lp_sjup01.aspx

Let's hope that the Habs can pull something off... it is their anniversary year.
