San Juan from 5pm to midnight


revkev

Recommended Posts

Its been awhile since I was in San Juan. We are going on the Liberty in 34 days (but who's counting ;) ).

We'd like to do something low key. Maybe just walk around OSJ, I heard that they have horse (buggy) rides, etc. Any suggestions as far as restaurants? I don't want the Senior Frogs type, I would like something culturally authentic.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thank you,

 

Kevin from Mpls.

Besides the things mentioned, you could also look into these:

The Bodies Exhibit is in OSJ:

There are walking tours, and Legends also now has a rum tasting/food tour:http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/rum-tour/

 

 

For restaurants: Raices, El Jibarito, Cafe Puerto Rico.

You could do a walking tour of Old San Juan or why not a segway tour, and yes you could do a carriage ride of Old San Juan also, provided there is enough light.

 

Here is a list of some of restaurants in Old San Juan

 

Have fun

 

We arrive in San Juan after 3 PM. We don't plan on leaving the ship until 8 PM. We want to go into Ols San Juan. How late do the shops stay open?

I'm on the same crusie and am looking for the same thing.

Didn't really know how the night time tours went. Not really a big fan of "nightlife" type stuff.

Just looking to eat where the locals do

I know you Liberty mentioned just hanging out, but you are in SJ during a great moon for BioBay viewing. It is an excursion that will take most of the night, but it is beautiful to see.

 

If you really want to just walk around, Old San Juan is beautiful at night. If you get off the ship quickly, you will have time to see San Cristobal fort before it closes.http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/fort-san-cristobal/

 

Where locals eat.... we try them all!

If you want local PR food, try Raices or Puerto Rico Cafe.

If you want PR fusions- Parrot Club or Buren.

For Tapas, Baru or El Picoteo

Also there is Japanese, Indian, Italian, Mexican, American, Turkish, Persian....all types (except Chinese strangely enough!).

Here is a list of restaurants with my favorites marked:

I am looking into a new dance show that should be on Monday nights (about $20 and includes some refreshments). I will post more when I find out info.

Just got back from a land vacation in PR. We went to a Italian place called Al Dente in Old San Juan. Great food, would go there again. Enjoy

Yup. I'll second a vote for Al Dente. It's on Recinto Sur. Great food. Desserts looked awesome too, but we didn't have any room left.

 

Best part is they have an $18 coupon in the San Juan Entertainment Book. And it gets even better for us since the manager didn't mark our card as "used" for them so that we can go back and get another discount! Cha-Ching!
