can anyone recommend a local hotel for one night prior to a cruise

by momof8

We will be traveling into San Juan a day before we set sail and wanted to find a hotel that we can spend the night at. I'm not looking to spend $300 + but don't want to stay in a dive either.....Any recommendations?

We are going on a cruise next month and booked at Sheraton Old San Juan for several nights. From what we have been able to gather it is right at the cruise ship location, but might be somewhat shop worn. For two nights stay we are paying $119/night plus taxes.

Would you mind reporting back next month after you have stayed there. I too looked into the Sheraton but the reviews were not all that great.

Before seeing the first reply to your post I was going to recommend the Sheraton also, right across the street from the cruise ship piers. Another nice hotel, a little farther and probably a little pricier, is El Convento, which truly was a convent in colonial times.

I bid on Priceline earlier this year and got the Hilton Caribe for $90 for the 1 night plus a $12 resort fee they assessed at the resort. The problem I was finding was that none of the resorts wanted a 1 day reservation, either they blocked me from booking or they were $300 per night.

The Hilton Caribe is not as convenient as staying in OSJ, we walked from there to OSJ but it was a good 20 minute walk. If you're not inclined to walk you'll need to add in cab fares which are set price in the OSJ area. The resort itself is nice, we ended up in a 1 bedroom condo with a small kitchen area.

You might also have a look at Hotwire (and betterbidding.com to see what people are getting on Hotwire), when I got the $90 rate on Priceline, they were in the $130-160 range.

The Sheraton is literally right across the street from the terminals and will be ok for the night. I stayed there several times before and it is right in Old San Juan and there are places to eat and visit before your cruise. There is a casino on the ground floor and right around the corner are some touristy spots to visit. Really, you can't beat it for the price and location...

Just wanted to mention that not all of the ships leave from the dock near the Sheraton, we sailed on Princess in January and we were across the bay from the other set of docks that are close to the hotels, restaurants, etc. We had to take a cab from the dock to get to OSJ after our cruise since we had a 1/2 day there post cruise. If your ship is docking at the Pan American terminal then you are across the bay, if you are leaving from the Old San Juan terminal then you are near the Sheraton.

Travel Tips for San Juan

Rain Forest to Beaches

by windoweb

Few cities in the Caribbean are as steeped in Spanish tradition as San Juan. You'll find restored 16th-century buildings, museums, art galleries, bookstores, and 200-year-old houses with balustraded balconies overlooking narrow, cobblestone streets in Old San Juan. Out in the countryside, you'll find mountain ranges, numerous trails, vast caves, coffee plantations, old sugar mills, hundreds of beaches, and the 28,000-acre El Yunque rain forest. Sailing away on our cruise with the Love of my life - Michael.

More About Puerto Rico

by starship

A few pieces of general information might help make planning for your trip to Puerto Rico easier, so I have added a few tips here.

The average temperature is 83 - 85 degrees with some humidity, and bright sunshine so will want to take full advantage of the opportunity to use the beautiful beaches, fishing, walking and hiking in Puerto Rico. Sun block, sunglasses and broad brim hats can be well used here.

Puerto Rico is in the Atlantic Time Zone and does not observe Daylight Savings Time.

There is no duty on goods purchased in Puerto Rico and brought back to the United States.

Transportation around San Juan can be easily had by taxi and rates are set for the most common corridors, e.g., the airport to Old San Juan; airport to hotels, etc. Verify rates before you engage the taxi and sharing taxis is a helpful way to budget costs. A new urban train is on the horizon for the island, but no date yet for its inaugural run. (Anyone with info. about this, please let me know.)

Over 1 million tourists arrive in Puerto Rico by cruise ship each year. Piers 1 - 6 are at the foot of Old San Juan which makes walking into town a only a matter of minutes. A new cruise ship terminal has been built and will contain many shops and perhaps restaurants. Tenants were moving in when we were there in November, 2004. It will also be a point of security for those leaving and returning to their cruise ship.

Good pair of walking shoes is recommended for Old San Juan because of the cobblestone streets and inclines.

Information can be obtained and booking tours can be done at "La Casita" (the little yellow building near the waterfront and cruiseship piers).

if you need a big REST and if...

by nygaston

if you need a big REST and if you want to stay in USA (or cannot leave USA for some reasons ...), you can go to Puerto Rico : it is a BEAUTIFUL island full of contrasts: sea, beaches, forests, rivers, lakes and mountains...

it's like a small paradise, but in USA: same money USD, same langages (english and spanish), same POST stamps, same telephone (but my Voicestream cell did not work here ?).

So you will not be lost, and you do not need a passport or a visa if you are US citizen.

Here you can take courses to learn caribean spanish or to dance salsa ! AVOID SAN MIGUEL AREA in OLD SAN JUAN (north) , not very safe.

Good: horse riding, sea (warm water) , beaches, forest (EL Yunque)

Puerto Rico is a commenwealth...

by Gypsystravels

Puerto Rico is a commenwealth of the United States but the main language spoken is Spanish. The majority of the Puerto Ricans also speak English and are very friendly. The only time you will actually need to know a little Spanish is if you travel outside the metropolitan area.

El Yunque - The Caribbean National Forest

by grandmaR

El Yunque is unique in the Caribbean and in the National Park/Forest system of the US. You should stop at the Visitor's Center first to find out about the park.

I wanted to see the flowers, foliage and animals. I didn't get to see the endangered parrot. I did get to see some of the land snails. You can hike and swim in the pools at the bottom of waterfalls. (Get a map of the hiking trails at the visitor's center.) Go to the Caribbean National Forest page on VT for the narrative of our visit.

We saw a breadfruit tree. There were hibiscus and ginger flowers (photo 3), and traveler's palms. Marian told us there were more than 75 species of ferns.

Unfortunately it is really hard to get there. You either have to rent a car or take a tour. There is also a lot of traffic on the roads.

This is from the National Forest website.

How to get there from San Juan

Take the Airport Expressway, Hwy. 26 (Baldorioty de Castro Ave.) and follow the signs directing you east to Carolina; once you are on the expressway, follow it to the end (approximately 22.5 kilometers/14 miles). At the final exit (Carolina) stay in the left hand lane until you merge with PR Road # 3. Continue on PR # 3 for approximately 20.9 kilometers/13 miles until you see the signs for "Palmer-El Yunque." Turn right at the traffic signal and follow the road through the village of Palmer until you see the sign for PR Road # 191. (Hint: there is a restaurant called "Noname", painted a bright-turquoise on the corner!) Turn left on PR # 191 and follow it for approximately 4 kilometers/2 miles until you see the El Yunque National Forest sign (photo 4). The entrance to the El Portal Rain Forest Center is on your right-hand side just after you enter the forest.
