What is San Juan
San Juan is the capital of, and at two million the largest city, in Puerto Rico. It has one of the best harbors in the Caribbean. The city will celebrate its 5th Century in 2008 or 2021, depending if they count from the founding of Caparra or the act of moving the Caparra settlement to Puerto Rico isle (Old San Juan)

About San Juan elsewhere
"They can be crowded, especially on holiday weekends, since this is a favored destination for Puerto Rican families."
"Broccoli Porto's father was an Italian national and his mother's family, Porto, claim their Puerto Rican heritage, having originally settled in the town of Cayey."
"Instituto de Cultura / Institute of Puerto Rican Culture."
"Although Puerto Rican cooking is somewhat similar to both Spanish and Mexican cuisine, it has a unique style, using such indigenous seasonings and ingredients as coriander, papaya, cacao, nispero (a tropical fruit that's brown, juicy, and related to the kiwi), apio (a small African-derived tuber that's sort of a more pungent type of turnip), plantains, and yampee (a tuber that's similar to an apio, but bigger, growing as big as 5-10 lb.)."
"It is the political base, economic powerhouse, and cultural center of the island, and it's home to about one-third of all Puerto Ricans."
"Metropol is the happiest blend of Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine we've ever had."
"Puerto Ricans hold deep pride, not only in their island but in each individual region: San Juan, Ponce, and Mayagüez battle for the title of Puerto Rico’s supreme city, and viequenses and culebrenses both insist that there is really no reason to visit the other island."
"This market is a good place to shop for souvenirs and items truly Puerto Rican."
About San Juan
This was one of the stops on our Caribbean cruise. A very nice city with interesting (war) history and fortresses. Makes you think how those guys survived the heat in old army uniforms... See the two fortresses. That's the best thing here. And buy some local rum.

Make sure to visit also the other fortress although this one is bigger and better. It was about 100 degrees Fahrenheit and 95% humidity while I was here. Makes you wonder how the soldiers in the old times could live here with the thick uniforms.
juha from Finland wrote about Fort San Cristobal 3 years, 10 months ago
A fort built by the Spanish. Lots of interesting stuff here too although the other fort just a kilometer away is bigger and perhaps a bit better.

Don Q is one of the Puerto Rican rum brands. In this museum/shop/bar you'll get to see how rum is made, you get to taste it for free (they make pretty good drinks) and get to buy it too. Convenient and educational!
