  1. Have visited San Juan numerous times ( maybe 20) We have walked all over Old San Juan - morning , noon and night. Even walked back to our hotel El Convento from the salsa club we were at at 2:30 am - no problems. But stay to the main streets after dark - we found lots of police out that early !
  2. I (and husband) are divers but do a lot of snorkeling too. We have dove al over the world including the Red Sea while on a trip to Egypt. THE best has been Roatan Honduras. West Bay Beach is beautiful white sand, restaurants and bars (all very low key) and gorgeous water and reef for snorkeling right off the beach. West End is a $3.00 - 8 minute water taxi ride away for shopping and more restaurants etc. Belize and Grand Cayman are next for snorkeling but I can't stand Belize so don't plan to go there again (been twice) so Grand Cayman is nice but very crowded island. Gorgeous sand and water tho and diving is great but snorkeling not so sure as most places you need to go out (in a boat) to access reefs and fun stuff to see. Thats my 2 cents 😑
  3. We are staying at the Jumeirah Etihad towers. A bit over your range (@200.00) but right in the "sweet spot" Not sure when you are going - we will be there 3 nights March 15-16-17. I will post our experience .....
  4. OK. Thought I had pretty much everything figured out for our upcoming cruise that ends in Singapore. We were to spend 2 nights at the Carlton after disembarking flying home on the 3rd night leaving late. So thought we had almost 3 days to explore. BUT.... received an email from Emirates and they cancelled our flight giving us the option to fly home a day early or a day later..... unfortunately couldn't stay a day later. So we have part of one day (after disembarking) and part of another. I know I want to see the gardens and do a bit of shopping - perhaps in a cool older market area. But any insights into what we can realistically see in our time frame. Should I book a private tour for our disembark afternoon? Then DIY on our next morning/lunch. Our driver is picking us up at 6:00 pm for a 9:10 flight. Any advice is appreciated - as we are disappointed but know you have to "go with the flow" when traveling.
  5. You need to go to your roll call and post this question. This is ports of call forum....
  6. http://www.mohap.gov.ae/Files/MOH_Service/361/ANNEX TO TRAVELLERS GUIDELINES 28-10-2018.pdf Whew - this was really hard to find. Anyone visiting United Arab Emerites bringing these drugs MUST have proper approval before arriving. The list is Narcotics, Psychotropic etc. Any medications that have these in them also must be approved according to website. Any other medications are OK. Hope this helps
