Visiting next month on Infinity. Have been to PR many times and haven't seen too much.

Any suggestions for a good private excursion, usually I don't take the ship excursions. Will try to get others from the board to join us.

Anmy help you can give will be appreciated.

Have you taken a cab up to El Morro and then walked your way down through Old San Juan? We have done this a couple of times and really enjoy it.

Have a great cruise!

Here is a map of the pier area: http://www.langland.org/cruises/sanjuan.asp I don't know which pier your ship docks at. We are on the Serenade, and I know that it and the Adventure dock at the International Pier. Many others dock at the pier in Old San Juan. If you are at the International pier, you will need to grab a cab just to get to OSJ. Even if you are at the OSJ pier, I suggest you take a cab up to El Morro and walk your way back down hill. That up-hill walk can really wear you out!

Here is a link to a self-guided walking tour of OSJ: http://www.frommers.com/destinations/sanjuan/0323010008.html

Have a great cruise!
