Caribbean Trip Itineraries

Old San Juan 1 day walking tour

Old San Juan 1 day walking tour
Destination(s): San Juan

This trip can be done in a sort of circle around the Old city, starting with either fort and working your way to the other side. There's not much to do in San Cristobal, although the views are nice (see photo), but El Morro is worth the trek up and into the different rooms and displays. Many of the other stops are quick photo ops (such as La Rogativa, the Totem, the churches), so they don't take that much time. El Convento is a beautiful hotel, great to stay at, but you can also stop for a cocktail in one of the outdoor patio restaurants. The museums are also small, but intriguing and unique, and housed right next door to each other. A word to the wise, the city itself is compact, but the hills can be steep (nothing along the lines of San Fransisco however) so be prepared; wear walking shoes and light clothing. Walking around in the heat, we were really grateful to stumble upon carts dishing out perfect-sized servings of pirqaguas (shaved ice with fruit syrup) and sorbets. read more about Old San Juan 1 day walking tour...

San Juan and Culebra

San Juan and Culebra
Destination(s): San Juan

This trip allowed us enough time to take in San Juan, including Old San Juan, on a modest budget. Getting out to Culebra was definitely worth it, it's completely different from the city. You have to work travel time into a Culebra trip, so just going for the day isn't really feasible. Two nights was perfect. read more about San Juan and Culebra... Read More
