San Juan - Olde World Caribbean Charm

We visited San Juan, Puerto Rico in June of 2000 while on our family reunion cruise. We didn't have much time in port...but maximized our experience by sightseeing in Olde San Juan. It was a really neat town with plenty to do. My favorite part was visiting El Morro fortress which guards the harbour. Here's my wife with my parents in Olde San Juan. You can faintly see the port in the background.

Here I am with my sweetie in front of our cruise ship before reboarding. Notice the Hard Rock Cafe bag. I collect their t-shirts from all over.

Here's another shot in front of the Celebrity Century cruise ship. 3 happy sun bums!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great history, architecture, & shopping
  • Cons:Some parts are pretty dirty...and strung out street junkies are present here and there
  • In a nutshell:Great place balancing history and beach getaways.
