  1. Yes you can make the forts stay open till 6pm half the year during the winter months. Mostly everything will be open 🙂
  2. if you want to stay on the beach i would choose Isla Verde, they have great one bedroom condo/apts that they rent for 90-$100 per night. Without knowing your dates https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/24708538?adults=2&check_in=2019-09-27&check_out=2019-09-28&source_impression_id=p3_1569341101_hEr7i%2BKPonObd5Lo
  3. I agree, if the forts are not your thing going to the beach and having drinks and an early dinner is not that bad either. If you never went to the forts though, should be a stop and you will have a little of time of you disembark fast enough... 🙂
  4. I agree with El Morro its a great view, at that time of year you will need to hurry of the ship though El Morro is a 20-30 minute walk up hill depending how fast you walk. If money is not an issue, take a taxi 🙂
  5. Yes i have and got sooo lucky with a 1 bedroom penthouse in Old San Juan. The only thing i would say with staying in Old San Juans apt is you can have issues with wifi ( thick walls) water pressure etc. If these things are 100% of importance to you then stay in a hotel. Remember it is an old city re built over and over again. Everything also depends what time of year and 1 day stays are obviously more expensive. I once stayed for a week in old town and went looking at many apts, they are all mostly similar it just comes down to what part of town you want to stay in. Very safe!
  6. They do open earlier when there ar ebig games.
  7. I second The Brickhaus it is a real sports bar atmosphere and lots of TV's But you cant go wrong with either one:) I just like Brickhaus wings....
  8. still time to visit the forts or a tour of San Juan and Old San Juan
  9. Right! I notice very few people talk about it and for the price i am shocked. Just renting umbrella and 2 chairs is $20.00 per couple, almost no where to by drinks or go to the bathroom, at least at a reasonable price. I like service and they do their best but walk along way for it, so i think ahead order my drinks at the beach with anticipation and im happy. The best is when they close the beach club and you enjoy the rest of your time on their roof top terrace, just a great view of Isla Verde beach I found them by accident through a local friend who uses their beach day pass, it is cheaper than having lunch and drinks at any other location.
  10. Yes it did, i would have taken the package with the meal but already had lunch and paid alot more. Email them they provide all that info to you:) But should be around $20.00 each way.
  11. Yes they do but it will be a simple drive through, i would plan ahead just because your with luggage.
  12. I too have done both, resort style is very different than being almost on your own. I do bounce back and forth depending how i feel:) I went back last year and Island Marketing changed to Isla Verde from Ocean park very close to the Marriot. I guess it all comes down to price and how much you want to spend (half day was $29.00 PP with 4 drinks), i went in the afternoon and really enjoyed the view from the roof top terrace watching the sunset. No sun over the water but still beautiful colors.
  13. Why not tour with your luggage and get dropped of at the airport afterwards:)
  14. The streets of Old San Juan are cobble stones so crossing at intersections can be difficult i suggest always having help when doing it your scooter?wheel chair can become unstable. The sidewalks are big enough for you to ride through most of the old city. When i was there someone who was crossing a street once going down the ramp of the sidewalk ( not sure what you cal the dip in the sidewalk for wheel chairs) fell over:) But if you are not alone and keep this in mind you should be fine in most of the streets especially the major one Fortaleza. Seeing the fort is doable, take your time:)
