My wife and I, and my mother-in-law are going on a cruise to the Southern Caribbean in a week.
We like snorkelling, history, and adventure. We will sometimes take the MIL for non-energetic excursions, and sometimes go on something a little more energetic just by ourselves.
I would appreciate any suggestions for interesting excursions or tours/tour operators. Our ports are:
1. San Juan Puerto Rico - we will be here for a few days before the cruise, so we can do a few things. I would also be interested in good restaurants/shows.
2. St. Thomas US Virgin Islands
5. St. Lucia
Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.
Welcome to Cruise Chat! I have to say, I like you already because you are travelling with your mother-in-law.
Check out the posts in the "Caribbean Ports" part of the forum. Just about everything you mentioned is covered here.
While in San Juan, if you want a real Puerto Rican lunch, take of on foot into Old San Juan and ask where you can find "EL Meson". Venturing out, if you want typical food, there is a place called Metropol near the airport in Isla Verde. About 15 minutes from Old San Juan and the cruise ship terminals.
Otherwise, fine dining can be found at some of the larger hotels and in the business district called, Hato Rey.
