I didn't have a ton of expectations when it came to stopping in San Juan. We hadn't planned anything out before hand and decided we would just get off the ship and wander around. The only thing we knew before disembarking was that when we got out of the terminal, take a left. So what did we do, we left the cruise terminal and took a right. (smart huh?) But after realizing we had taken a wrong turn, we crossed the road and headed back towards the left.
The port in San Juan
We spent the day walking down the cobblestone roads, doing some shopping, admiring the beautiful architecture and colors of the buildings, and exploring the forts and old town San Juan. This city was truly breathtaking. I felt as if I was walking down a street in a small italian village. We also visited one of the old forts there. It was neat to take in a bit of history and culture as we walked through this new city.
It was extremely warm out that day so we spent a few hours exploring and then got back on the ship. We enjoyed not having any set plans and just getting to explore the city and take in all the beauty.

I am so glad that we picked this itinerary for our trip. Each port was so beautiful in its own way and all ended up being places we would definitely visit again!
