Combining activities with lunch and drinks and transport can start to get pretty expensive in Puerto Rico when planning independently. This San Juan cruise saves you money by merging a catamaran cruise with lunch, local sangria, beach time, and even an optional upgrade for hotel pickup and drop-off.

An easy walk from the cruise terminal. You really need to check this out. It's an amazing place and so close to everything.

it was nice! Nice views and not really much around but it’s worth stopping by around when the suns about to set!

We have visited both Historic Sites, Castillo de San Cristobal is smaller but has excellent exhibition. Grounds and views are stunning. We have spent about 2 hours and wish we had more time however they were closing. It is a short walk through Old San Juan and then a very nice stroll to Castillo San Felipe. If you have time visit both and if you are short on time then this one is perfect for a shorter visit.

It’s so beautiful and hard to imagine the engineering that went into place for this structure. It’s such a marvel we have to take pictures every time we’re in PR.

Cristobal was built when the main Old Town walls were.The town had been burned in an invasion and more needed to be done to protect the islet. Up went the wall and Cristobal. And, together, they turned back an English invasion in 1789. There's not as much 'inside' exploring to do here but the views are magnificent and there is much to see and it is well worth your time.
