San Juan, Puerto Rico

AVGÅR:

TAKE IT DESPACITO

Your journey begins in San Juan, Puerto Rico’s vibrant capital. You’ll find 500 years of history to delve into here, from ancient fortresses to colorful colonial-era buildings. If you’re traveling to San Juan by plane, arrive at least a day earlier to explore this beautiful city. If you’re arriving the same day, the airport is just a twenty-minute taxi ride to the port.

AVGÅR:

SANDY SHORES GALORE

In the capital of St. John, you can peek into local craft shops or explore a centuries-old British naval base in Nelson’s Dockyard.

If you wander the harbor front, you’ll find traditional English fish and chips paired with locally brewed Wadadli beer.

INSIDER TIP

Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands, so don’t forget your sunscreen. Do not wear camouflage clothing— it’s against the law  in Antigua— and leave your beach attire for the beach.

Clear sunny beach on Carlisle Bay, Bridgetown, Barbados

BEST BEACH DAY EVER

Sit back and relax on the powdery white sands of Harbour Lights on Carlisle Bay Beach. If kicking back with a rum punch in hand is a little too laid-back, you can snorkel around shipwrecks, rent a jet ski, or even visit Tortuga to swim with turtles.

Three Bajan fish cakes on a green plate with white rice

Local Cuisine

This island is a seafood lover’s dream come true. Bajan (or Barbadian) cuisine blends African, Indian and British influences.

For the best deals on duty-free luxury items and authentic souvenirs from the island, check out the shops in the cruise terminal and the stores along Broad Street, the main street in Bridgetown.

Shopping

The best duty-free shops are at Pointe Seraphine cruise terminal and across the harbor at La Place Carenage.
