Puerto Rico Cruises

Introduction to Puerto Rico Cruises

San Juan is the single most used port when it comes to cruising in the Caribbean. Even more impressive, after Miami, Puerto Rico is the second most popular cruising destination in the world. Finding cruise companies with ships travelling to Puerto Rico is one of the easiest things to do – but just like everything else that offers too many choices, you may find it hard to decide on the best cruise for you.

San Juan

As Puerto Rico's major port, San Juan is an ideal destination for cruises. It is placed ideally within sailing distance of all the major American east coast ports as well as the major Caribbean ports. For an American citizen it is also a perfect travel destination since US citizens do not require a passport to enter the country. There are very few cruise liners who sail to the Caribbean without stopping at San Juan – in fact it is the first stop of a number of companies!

If you have just one day to spend, you have to see Old San Juan – it is the central area and contains a number of sightseeing points including Fort San Felipe del Morro, Fort San Cristobal and El Palacio de Santa Catalina. As a city founded in 1521, San Juan, especially the old historical sites, will please your eyes with its beautiful buildings and historical monuments. Don't forget to spend a few minutes in Plaza de Armas or Plaza de Colon to get a true sense of Puerto Rico.
