Private Historical 2-Hour Walking Tour Of Old San Juan
There is a magical feeling to the area of Old San Juan and your first thought may be that you are not in the United States. There seems to be nothing that looks as old or has the history on the mainland as you will see in Old San Juan. Founded in 1521, this part of the city of San Juan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as a U.S. Historic Zone. Your walk begins at the water's edge and follows the city wall, where the view is spectacular and the past comes alive. There are over 400 well-preserved buildings in the old city that date back to its inception. The architecture is incredible and honestly you will feel as if you are in Europe, with cobblestone streets and buildings sitting side by side.

Most of the old city will remind you of its history as a military stronghold but much of this area has now been modified to house attractions for tourism. Cafes, small shops, great gardens and courtyards abound. The former barracks now house the Museo de Las Americas and has a collection of Latin American Folk Art. Some of the religious structures spread throughout the area such as the San Juan Cathedral seems to be both Gothic and modern in architecture due to constant renovations since it was opened in 1540. You'll have the chance to see the San Juan Gate, San Juan Cathedral, and the town square. And you will learn where to find other points of interest that you can return to and explore in greater detail.

This special itinerary was created to deliver an entertaining venture in this historical city. Unless you take in old San Juan on foot you really cannot understand how special it is but accompanied by a local guide, you will learn about the history of this US territory. The cobblestone path through the narrow streets will bring you to the fort, the artisans that still make and sell bamboo cups, local cigars, tropical candels and souvenirs made of wood, calabash and other local materials, and what life is like on Puerto Rico. But most important is hearing the background of this island, which most Americans do not realize is part of our USA.

Your guide will present many options for places to visit. There will be plenty of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Private Old And New San Juan Tour
There is a magical quality to San Juan, and Old San Juan is the nucleus. A 465-year-old neighborhood originally conceived as a military stronghold, its seven square block area has evolved into a charming residential and commercial district. The narrow streets of this old walled city are paved with cobblestones and there are more than 400 carefully restored 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings bordering small plazas. Architectural highlights include the Governor's Palace, San Juan Cathedral, the tiny Cristo Chapel, and the impressive San Cristobal Fort.

Your tour also includes a drive along some of the coastline of the metropolitan areas, particularly in the Condado area. This is where the luxury hotels, casinos, nightclubs, and restaurants line the beach and nearby neighborhoods.

The best part of this tour, however, is meeting your guide, who will share lots of interesting information and hidden gems with you as you explore this fascinating Old World city. If time permits, you can sightsee or shop on your own in Old San Juan before returning to your cruise ship or hotel.

Canopy Zipline In Puerto Rico
This thrilling adventure will bring you soaring above the lush Puerto Rican landscape.

Upon arrival, you'll have 20-minutes to sign the waiver and get geared up. Gear consists of a harness, a pair of gloves, and a helmet, plus a variety of buckles and straps that the guides attach to the harness.

Then the adventure begins! You will begin with a short hike to our starting point. After approximately 15 minutes, you'll arrive at the first platform, a nice wooden deck, for a detailed demonstration of the procedures.

After listening to a brief explanation of the system, key instructions, and positions, your guide will ask for the first brave volunteer to step up and away into the forest!

Glide from platform to platform, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the forest, while enjoying the rush of flying through the trees and the lush Puerto Rican landscape! There are 5 zips in all, and 7 hanging bridges. The last zip will bring you to our Mojito Bar where you will enjoy a delicious lunch (available morning departure only).

Hacienda Horseback Riding
Just a short ride outside of the city brings you to a beautiful, 220 acre hacienda, where you'll find healthy, well-behaved, yet spirited horses just waiting to show you around.

At the barn you will be paired with a horse to match your skill level and given some safety information. After that, with your guide leading the way, you're ready to enjoy the scenery, courtesy of your equine transport.

We'll travel through table top ranges, around lagoons and lakes, along subtropical forests with mountain views. About half way through the ride it's break time for both you and your 4-legged friend. Afterward, we'll head back to the beginning, enjoying the natural surroundings and keeping an eye open for wildlife.

Back on your own two feet, you might want to head to the bar to wet your whistle with a refreshing beverage before making the trip back to the city.
