Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you are interested in buying art/jewelry from the streets, look at other vendors first to see who's original and best pricing before making a final purchase. Sunscreen - lots of it! It is your best friend even for brief walking tours.

Liked: What's not to like about San Juan. Overall, it was great. Loved the colorful buildings, the old forts, places to go, etc.

Disliked: Just be weary about what price people give you when they are selling something. I learned from one seller - I asked the a price for an ice cream and then I paid what they asked and then they asked for more money. So sometimes watch out of some sales people and always keep an eye on your belongings.
