This really can't be considered a "Things to Do" tip. However, on the day we were in port and walking down one of the narrow streets in Old San Juan, we found ourselves in the midst of what we first thought was a parade. Then we became slightly alarmed when we heard loud speakers, and realized it wasn't a festive parade but a parade of protesters marching. We saw police both walking and on motorcycles coming our way. Some marchers were wearing masks! We were a little afraid we might get caught up in something and be in the wrong place at the wrong time! No need to worry .... the police told us it was only Water Department workers protesting for higher wages!

If you've worked up a bit of an appetite during your wanderings around Old San Juan, or might be interested in a trendy restaurant, try the "Dragonfly Restaurant".
