  1. Isla Caribe has a nice "what to do" blog post about Ponce. https://islacaribepr.com/index.php/2018/11/06/10-things-to-do-on-a-cruise-stop-in-ponce/
  2. Check guided walking tours with Puerto Rico Historic Building Society (they are on Facebook).
  3. This link is for the Puerto Rico Convention center, but the map has hotels around it, which are near the Panamerican Port (the Convention Center is on the way to the pier). https://prconvention.com/en/visitors/
  4. Hi! There's many attractions within walking distance from the pier, like casinos, local and international fare restaurants, coffee shops, souvenir stores, etc. Usually there's good police presence during a ship's stay at port, so you should be fine. For local fare near the port you can check restaurants in front of the Doña Fela parking building, which is located some 7-10 minutes walking from the pier. Google Maps is very handy in Old San Juan!

  6. Pizza - Pirilo's Pizza Rústica Burgers - El Hamburger or Buns Burger Shop Local fare - El Jibarito Coffee - Café Colao (in the piers near Tijuana's, a Mexican / TexMex restaurant)
  7. There's already plans for bringing the umbrellas back. Here's a local newspaper article (in Spanish): https://www.elnuevodia.com/noticias/locales/nota/regresanlassombrillasalacallefortaleza-2511840/
  8. Would you be interested in a OSJ walking tour? If so, look up Puerto Rico Historic Building Society in AirBnB or Facebook.
  9. Hi! The huge, huge protests have already ended after the governor resigned. Fortaleza street, the main gathering place of protesters, is already without barriers as of this week. There's still some much smaller protests going on, but not on a daily basis. So, it's basically back to normal in OSJ. BTW, there's already talk of putting new umbrellas at Fortaleza street.
  10. Here's info updated as of April 2019: https://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/el-yunque-post-maria/
  11. I hope this link helps. https://sanjuanpuertorico.com/taxis/
  12. Hi! Not all stores stay open until night, mostly restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops usually stay open when ships leave at night.
  13. Hi! An option for seeing downtown historic Ponce is Isla Caribe, as they offer guided walking tours. https://islacaribepr.com/index.php/2018/11/06/10-things-to-do-on-a-cruise-stop-in-ponce/
