The city of San Juan, Puerto Rico is the largest and one of the most popular cruise ports in the Caribbean for good reason. Its variety and ability to charm visitors is legendary. One visit is not enough to discover all that the island offers to travelers.
As you come into port, you’re greeted by the island’s most iconic landmarks; San Felipe del Morro Fort. The city of Old San Juan has been welcoming ships for over 500 hundred years and its blue cobblestones and colorful buildings have been witness to centuries of historical events. Whether it’s your first time in Puerto Rico or you’ve visited us before, exploring the fortified walls and experiencing living history is truly unique. Along with Spanish-colonial forts, some other popular experiences include arts and crafts, delectable cuisine, shopping, and Spanish culture.
A Puerto Rico Vacation to Remember
The fun is not limited to the port and its surroundings. Looking for nature and adventure? Foodie delights? Water sports and white sand beaches? Puerto Rico is a first-class destination with something for everyone. The island’s modern infrastructure and accessibility of tour operators allows visitors to enjoy a variety of experiences while on shore.
Puerto Rico might seem like a small island, but it offers from rainforests to dry forests, caves and caverns, bioluminescent bays, coral reefs, and more. If you are looking to reconnect with nature a visit to Cueva Ventana may be just the thing you are looking for. Located in the northern town of Arecibo, a tour to this site is a unique ecologically-oriented experience. A short hike to this living cave will allow you to witness one of the most stunning panoramic views in the Caribbean. Great for a selfie opportunity!
Nature lovers looking for an adrenaline kick should definitely add Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park to their must-do list. The park has the second longest zipline in the world as well as rope bridges, rappelling courses, and smaller ziplines for everyone in the family to enjoy. During your time on shore, you can also visit the only tropical forest in the US Forest Service System, El Yunque National Rainforest. One of our most popular tourist locations, El Yunque is one of the two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves on the island.
