Many of SeaDream’s Caribbean voyages begin and/or conclude in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is the largest capital in the Caribbean and the airport (SJU) is one of the busiest in the Caribbean.
While San Juan’s cruise port welcomes some 5 million visitors each year, there is much to see and do beyond the port. Nightlife, casinos and charming Old San Juan with its colorful colonial architecture are not far from parrots, frogs and lush wildlife.
If you are near the port, take time to explore La Fortaleza and San Juan National Historic Site. The UNESCO World Heritage site is a series of defensive structures built between the 15th and 19th centuries to protect city.
San Juan Cathedral is one of Old San Juan’s 400 restored Spanish colonial buildings. Built in 1540 , Ponce de Leon is entombed here.
A 45-minute drive outside the city of San Juan is El Yunque National Forest. Take a hike through the lush flora and take a swim in the pools fed by waterfalls.
