Hey, happy Sunday! Weekends usually mean a new post from me ! And it’s another post about my trip! This time I will tell you everything about San Juan, Puerto Rico. You can check out my video from there : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZcCeGgql_4 . Thanks!
Puerto Rico was our second stop while traveling with MSC Divina. We went to San Juan, it’s the capital of Puerto Rico. Like usually we choose to take a tour around the whole city. I think it was the best idea to travel like that there. We saw the both sides of San Juan because it’s basically divided into two parts. The first place we visited was a place full of kind of creepy statues, it’s really difficult to explain it and I can’t find the name on the internet. I will post some photos from there and you will understand. It was really interesting, also it had a cool fountain. After that we went to local Farmer’s market. I loved it! It had so many interesting fruits that I have never seen before. The size of mangoes were crazy! That market also has the longest cigar in the world. Of course, you can’t have a city tour in Puerto Rico without visiting beaches. The beach we went to is called “Condado Beach”. Actually, it’s a really small beach and rocky but it has a sandy place for sunbathing. But we didn’t spend that much time there because we wanted to see the whole city. After spending some time there, we went to a place called “San Juan National Historic site”. It has colonial-era forts such as Castillo San Felipe del Morro,bastions, powder houses, and three fourths of the old city wall. I really liked Castillo San Cristóbal because it is so acient and it’s the largest fortification built by the Spanish. When we climb to the top of that fort, you can see the whole city. The view there is breathtaking! I think everybody should visit that fort while traveling in Puerto Rico.
Also, we went to Santa María Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery, El Capitolio, San Juan Cathedral but we didn’t spend that much time there. When our tour was over, we still wanted to see something more. So, we decided to go to some local places. One of the things I liked the most about San Juan are the buildings. The colours of buildings are so amazing. Imagine living in a city full of pastel colours. Incdredible, right?! I have way too many photos of those houses. Oh well.. At the end of the day we went to a local cafe to get some coconut water. I don’t know why but I can’t imagine my holidays without coconuts. While we were enjoying the sun and the coconut water, some local dancers came and wanted to dance with me. Yea, you can see it on my video, it was pretty awkward but fun! Just ignore my moves!
That’s it for now! Thank you for reading! Enjoy my photos!
