San Juan Cave Rappelling and Zipline Safari

After you're picked up at the pier, you will drive just outside San Juan, where an action-packed adventure awaits. You'll ride, hike, cave rappel and Zip through the Puerto Rican countryside on this great adventure tour that's a highlight reel in itself! After a safety briefing and orientation, you will board an 8x8 amphibious vehicle and head out to the wetlands. You will travel through wetlands, mangroves and carstic region forests, with beautiful landscapes abundant with flora and fauna. After crossing the wetlands, you will begin a 10-15 minute moderate trek through the subtropical forest to reach the cave. Here your guides will help hook you up as you prepare to rappel 30 feet into Dead Horse Cave, which is sure to exceed your every expectation. Once below, you will walk through the cave and learn some interesting facts about the Taino Indians and the Creole people who inhabited this region hundreds of years ago. You will then head back to the amphibious vehicles to drive to the zip area nearby. You will reach the first zipline by walking across two canopy hanging bridges suspended 30 feet high above the ground. You will experience three exhilarating ziplines which will glide you across beautiful scenes of plantain fields, mountains and lagoons. The professionally installed ziplines have double cables and pulleys for extra security. The longest zip measures 1,000 feet long and reaches a height of 200 feet above ground. Your last lands in the unique hilltop Mojito Bar, where you will enjoy a delicious homemade Puerto Rican meal. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a refreshing Mojito or a cold beer at the cash bar. After lunch, you will be returned to the cruise pier. A minimum of four guests are required for tour to operate. Tour operates rain or shine but within safety guidelines.

Private Bacardi Distillery and San Juan

Depart to the south side of San Juan Harbor for a private visit to the Bacardi Rum Distillery, the world's largest distiller of natural spirits, and a fascinating city tour of Old and New San Juan. Upon arrival, you and your guide will board an open-air tram for the ride to the new Visitor's Building. During your tour, you will see audio and video displays about the history of Bacardi and the rum-making process, and then visit a gallery displaying old documents, family portraits, rum bottles and other items. At the Bacardi cocktail lounge, which resembles a 1920s Cuban bar, you will watch a bartender prepare cocktails using Bacardi rum, see some of Bacardi's greatest commercial ads in a room filled with lights and music, and send video emails to your friends. Your tour will conclude at the open-air pavilion for some complimentary rum drinks. Bacardi Rum and other products may be purchased in the Rum N' Things gift shop next to the pavilion. PLEASE NOTE: For insurance reasons, guests cannot tour the actual preparation/bottling area. You will then drive to the new part of town, where you will travel through the Condado area. Here you will see the luxury hotels, casinos, nightclubs and many restaurants that make this the most popular place in town after dark. San Juan's Old Town tells hundreds of years of history in its restored and renovated buildings, homes and fortifications. It is divided by narrow streets, many still paved with cobblestones. Photo opportunities abound as you pass the Governor's Palace, San Juan Cathedral, Capilla de Cristo, Fort San Cristobal, and travel along the coast road to El Morro, where you will have a photo stop from the street. As you drive along, look down every street for hidden plazas and the beautiful 17th-century Spanish ironwork on the restored old homes, and blue-black glazed cobblestones lining the narrow streets of the Old City. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to the port. Guests on ships docked at the Pan American pier (across the bay from Old San Juan) have the option of ending their tour in Old San Juan for shopping and sightseeing. Those doing so are responsible for their own transportation back to the Pan American Pier. This is not a transfer tour. It does not accommodate luggage and tour returns to the cruise pier. Guests looking for a pre/post cruise tour and transfer should book one of the TRANSFER tours.

El Yunque Rainforest Tour & Hike

Escape the roar of the city and the crowds as you take an El Yunque Rainforest Hike tour with your own private guide. Setting out from the city, you will travel approximately 60 minutes. The rainforest is a cool, mountainous, subtropical rainforest located on the eastern side of the Luquillo Mountains. Upon arrival, you'll set out with your guide on a walking tour of the Palo Colorado area of the forest, while learning how tropical rainforests function, why they are so fragile, and why they are so important to the planet. The paths are paved with areas of packed dirt. As the rainforest is on the side of a mountain, there are several inclines. A stop will be made at the Yokahu Observation Tower where, clouds permitting, you can see San Juan in one direction and Luquillo in the other. The tower's height is 66 feet high and the top is reached by climbing 98 steps. Another stop will be made at the La Coca Falls, where water from the upper forest runs across a large stone wall. No visit to the rainforest is complete without a stop at the El Portal Rainforest Center, where you can view exhibits and presentations on the rainforest. The center also has restrooms and a gift shop. Your return to San Juan will be via a different route to show you more of the varied landscape of this beautiful island.

Reviews on Tours in San Juan Post a Review

The Zip Line tour in San Juan is one of the best in the Caribbean. There is one long Zip that goes for over a mile. It is deep in the lush rain forest of San Juan. To get to the Zip line location it is about a 45 minute to 1 hour ride deep into the country side if San Juan Puerto Rico. The island has many diverse landscapes and the trip there was a tour in itself. Try the Zip line Tour in San Jaun.

Walking to El Morro fort was great. there is a nice green pasture to walk through and the fort was really nice. Overall i highly recommend just taking the day to walk around old San Juan and visit one of the Forts.

San Juan, Puerto Rico's buzzing capital, preserves the island's Spanish heritage in its colonial neighborhoods. The cobblestone streets of Old San Juan teem with restaurants and shops and a large concentration of art galleries and museums. New San Juan has its charms as well, particularly in its more storied residential architecture in Santurce and Miramar. Golden sand fronts the coastal areas of Ocean Park and Isla Verde, where peaceful sunsets rub shoulders with a nightlife that rocks until the early morning.

Things to Do

Escape the high-rises and highways of central San Juan for the cobbled streets in the walled city of Old San Juan, lined with Spanish townhouses decorated with wrought-iron balconies. Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, perched on a rocky promontory, provides a view of the entire city. San Juaneros head to the golden sands of Isla Verde Beach to swim and snorkel in the calm, clear waters. Hop on a ferry and tour the nearby Bacardi Distillery. At nearby Luquillo Beach, families swim in the calm waters.

Shopping

Expect to find bargains galore in Puerto Rico, from luxury goods to local crafts. Browse the couture emporiums on Avenida Ashford in Condado, or look for trendy clothes and electronics at Plaza Las Americas, the biggest mall in the Caribbean. A stroll down the narrow side streets of Old San Juan reveals shops filled with vejigantes (painted Carnival masks), unique souvenirs, books and jewelry.

Nightlife and Entertainment

Nightlife starts late, with high-rollers rolling the dice in San Juan's casinos and Latin beats pouring out from funky beach bars on Isla Verde. In Old San Juan, head uphill to Calle San Sebastián and Calle Cristo for a lively mix of bars and restaurants. To get into the clubs and discos, be sure to dress to impress. On Sunday nights, sip rum cocktails and watch the sun set over Old San Juan in the evocative Paseo de la Princesa.

Restaurants and Dining

San Juan holds many global culinary surprises including splash-worthy steakhouses and sushi emporiums in Isla Verde, or casual Italian and Mexican eateries in Condado. Sample the island's rustic criolla cuisine, a blend of Spanish and African influences, in rustic spots in Old San Juan. Fresh catches of red snapper (chillo) and dolphinfish (dorado) ) are two widely available local favorites. Street-food aficionados will delight in codfish fritters or deep-fried cheese. Wash it down with black coffee, Cuba Libre rum cocktails, or cold beer.


City Layout

Metropolitan San Juan includes the walled Old San Juan at the end of a long peninsula, Puerta de Tierra, the narrow bridge of land between San Juan Bay and the Atlantic Ocean that connects the Old City with the rest of San Juan. You can take a bridge into Condado, a narrow strip of land between the ocean and a lagoon, or continue on to the Miramar neighborhood, a neighborhood of beautiful residential homes whose once seedy waterfront section is being revamped into a world-class leisure development. The city also includes Santurce, its traditional downtown area, which has also been experiencing a revitalization in recent years, with large theaters and old apartment buildings being polished up so that the sector is starting to shine again like it did in its 1940s heyday. The Hato Rey financial district has taken on an almost futuristic look with its elevated Tren Urbano and distinctive Puerto Rico Coliseum, which has something exciting going on just about every week. Río Piedras is the site of the University of Puerto Rico and one of the best street markets in the Caribbean.

The Condado strip of beachfront hotels, restaurants, casinos, and nightclubs is separated from Miramar by a lagoon. Isla Verde, another resort area, is near the airport, which is separated from the rest of San Juan by an isthmus.
