San Juan Puerto Rico
 
What are the must see places and restaurants in San Juan Puerto Rico?

The Bacardi distillery is in San Juan, if you like rum. There's also a great rainforest (who's name escapes me at the moment). We took a Princess cruise from San Juan a few years ago, so we only had a day or two beforehand/afterward to do stuff.

Actually, the Bacardi distillery is the town of Cataño, you take a ferry from San Juan to the other side of the bay where the distillery is. Many people call it San Juan because of its proximity. The rain forest is called "El Yunque" and is in the town of Luquillo which is an hour and half to two hours from San Juan depending on traffic. San Juan has the fort of "El Morro" and "Castillo San Cristobal" which were made when the Spaniards owned the Island and used to protect the Island from invaders. Many wonderful restaurants such as "Aguaviva" (Sea food), Casa de España (Spanish food), Vaca Brava (local traditional food, featured on Man-vs-food). Many carts with local finger foods and sweets. Many shops. The San Juan museum of art. You have a couple of options. Lot's of history. I hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to ask. we use to live in PR and are excited to visit on our cruise that leaves this Saturday :goodvibes

Oh yes, and if you're walking around El Morro and you're on the bottom walkway, don't bother going all the way around, there isn't a way up to the top and you'll just have a very long walk and a disgruntled husband who will keep saying "i told you so!" Or maybe that's just me who had that! lol.

Thank you for all the great info. Fantasy for NYE. I love walking through the fortress.

We're on the 12/1 sailing. I'm hoping somebody posts their Navigators for the PR day. A friend's husband grew up in San Juan, so we're hoping he can suggest some sights. BTW, cruise docs arrived today. Whoot!

We are on the 11/3/12 sailing, inaugural Puerto Rico voyage :goodvibes

I will be more than happy to post the Navigator for the PR day. My husband is from PR and I was raised there, so we are pretty excited to have the Disney cruise sail us to the lovely Island. 2 more days to go! pixiedust:

Please post all your Navigators, not just PR.

I am on the 3/9/13 sailing to PR. We all are interested in them and the dining rotations, etc.
Thanks!

I would be more than happy to :)

We have gone to the Harbor Brewery. The food is very good, but a bit pricey.
A lot of people like the design it has, it is very pretty. The steak and lobster are wonderful.
