A variety of cruises depart from Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan, heading to the Caribbean, South America and, depending on the time of year, across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe.
Book a fly-cruise sailing from San Juan and you'll have a good choice of cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises and Carnival Cruise Line.
Founded by the Spanish in the 1500s, San Juan offers its visitors some incredible historic sightseeing set against a backdrop of tropical forests, stunning beaches and distant overgrown peaks. See Spanish colonial buildings on a trip of the old quarter, and visit forts, gardens, rainforest and even rum distilleries during your time ashore – or, just stretch out on the beach and go for a swim in the clear warm waters.
Imagine swimming with turtles and bright seahorses in a clear, turquoise ocean. Head ashore and you’ll feel the hot sun beating down on white beaches. Cruises from San Juan could take you to beautiful Barbados, where colonial and African history combine to create a unique, vivid culture. See striking tropical flowers in the botanical gardens, or head out to forts, plantations and delve down into ancient cave systems beneath the ground.
Lying at the heart of the Caribbean is Dominica, a spectacular destination to come ashore if you’re heading off on a cruise from San Juan. Dominica is home to many beautiful, secluded waterfall pools and vast national parkland with UNESCO World Heritage status. Head down between the hidden rock walls of Titou Gorge, or cool off after a trip to beautiful Soufriere with a swim in the island's secluded Emerald Pool.
Cruises from San Juan could be the perfect way to see St Thomas, the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Discover the truth behind famous pirate tales, or head up into the hills to find old plantation estates and tourist-friendly bars and attractions. Walk along some of the world’s best beaches or sail and snorkel in the clear bay, with coral reefs and tropical fish in the water below. You could head out to neighbouring St John too, most of which is composed of untouched beaches and outstanding national parkland.
Antigua boasts a rich nautical history dating back to the 1700s, closely linked with Admiral Nelson. Visits to Nelson’s Dockyard are a popular excursion; the perfect opportunity to get to the heart of British naval heritage during colonial times. You could take a drive down winding roads past rich tropical countryside, seeing old churches and plantations along the way – or swim with stingrays, relax on one of the island’s 365 beaches... and see Antigua from above on bridges and ziplines in the forest canopy.
Cruises from San Juan offer plenty of choice if you’re looking to tour several Caribbean islands on your next voyage – especially the jaw-dropping good looks of the sainted islands. You could sail to fantasy locations like tourist-friendly St Maarten, see the lush green hills and stark white sands of St Kitts – or visit St Lucia’s dramatic coastline, and the sun-soaked celebrity haven of St Barts. Each of the sainted islands offers glorious beaches and turquoise seas, but delve a little deeper on adventures ashore and you'll find local cultures and histories that make each island a different world to explore.
See a rich blend of traditional culture and Spanish colonial influence in Cartagena, a beautiful port city in Colombia that faces Jamaica in the Caribbean Sea. Cruises from San Juan to Cartagena offer a great choice of shore excursions – whether you’re looking for magnificent colonial architecture around the old city centre, or colourful folk dance and theatre at the Heredia Theater. Walk along the solid old city walls of Las Murallas, or visit the city’s magnificent cathedral, monastery and museums.
North of the Caribbean Islands, your cruise from San Juan could take you to the Bahamas too – a stunning string of islands that lie just off the coast of Florida. Nassau is one of the most popular destinations here, and offers a great choice of adventures ashore. You could make straight for Paradise Island, home to hugely popular resorts and golf courses; elsewhere, see the coral and tropical fish beneath the clear waves on a snorkelling trip, or parrots, flamingos, monkeys and jaguars in the inviting Ardastra zoo and gardens.
