This post brought to you by Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island. All opinions are 100% mine.
About four years ago, I had the chance of a lifetime to go on a cruise with my son. We went along with my aunt, uncle and cousin. Jacob was 5 at the time. One of our stops on the journey was San Juan, in Puerto Rico. We were only there for a few hours, but I saw enough to know that I want to go back for a longer vacation!
Exploring Puerto Rico for an Afternoon
We had arranged a tour on a bus for most of our time in San Juan, but had a good two hours or so before that started to explore on our own. Puerto Rico has so many cool places to visit. We spent most of our free time in the old fort right there in the middle of San Juan. It was such a neat experience! Jacob loved hamming it up next to all the artifacts.
I have to admit, though, I was too scared to climb to the top! My uncle took Jake and my cousin up the steps to get a great view. We also did a little shopping before our tour. I love the tourist shops, they have some great inexpensive souveniers.
