A Few Things To Remember About San Juan Reviews
Jul 03, 2007
A few pieces of general information might help make planning for your trip to Puerto Rico easier, so I have added a few tips here.
The average temperature is 83 - 85 degrees with some humidity, and bright sunshine so will want to take full advantage of the opportunity to use the beautiful beaches, fishing, walking and hiking in Puerto Rico. Sun block, sunglasses and broad brim hats can be well used here. Puerto Rico is in the Atlantic Time Zone and does not observe Daylight Savings Time. There is no duty on goods purchased in Puerto Rico and brought back to the United States.
For the most part. perhaps the best way to really explore San Juan is by foot. Though we just had the afternoon to spend here, we made the most of it. We walked through this historic town and marvelled at the Spanish architecture and the vibrant tapestry of color on the buildings.
You can not possibly go to San Juan without going to the beach. There are plenty of beaches surrounding the island of Puerto Rico.
Transportation around San Juan can be easily had by taxi and rates are set for the most common corridors, e.g., the airport to Old San Juan; airport to hotels, etc. Verify rates before you engage the taxi and sharing taxis is a helpful way to budget costs. A new urban train is on the horizon for the island, but no date yet for its inaugural run. (Anyone with info. about this, please let me know.) Over 1 million tourists arrive in Puerto Rico by cruise ship each year, and I was fortunate enough to get to roam around the area and explore all of these attractions that make San Juan so wonderful.
