San Juan, Puerto Rico
I am in love with San Juan! We got here this morning super early and once we got our stuff packed up, we headed out into the town. The architecture is stunning and the buildings for the most part are kept up beautifully. There were tons of jewelry stores and tourist shops mixed with authentic Puerto Rican restuarants and shops. We stopped at one Linen shop that had beautiful things.
What is funny is that right in the middle of town, in historic Old San Juan, there is a Starbucks and Marshalls! So funny. Every street was picturesque with mountains and the beautiful water in the background.
We at lunch at a local restuarant, happy to be back in air conditioning. The food was delicious. Our ship left early, so we headed back around 1:00pm. We ran into one of the Wish families and they are having a blast. Tonight the Flow Rider is reserved for them for a few hours, I can't wait to see them surfing out on the open seas!
Back on the ship, you could see the fort and a beautiful government building-not quite sure what it is...maybe Camille can tell me!
