San Juan Port
So we have now disembarked from our cruise ship or car, and will make our way through Old San Juan. But first, let's talk about the San Juan Port, one of the busiest ports in the Caribbean which serves as a vital hub for maritime trade and tourism in the region.

Its strategic location in the Caribbean Sea makes it an important gateway for ships traveling between North America, Central America, South America, and other Caribbean islands.

The port features modern facilities equipped to handle a wide range of cargo and passenger vessels. It has multiple terminals, docks, and berths designed to accommodate container ships, cruise ships, bulk carriers, and other types of vessels.

San Juan Port handles a significant volume of cargo, including containerized goods, petroleum products, automobiles, and general merchandise. It serves as a key logistics hub for importing and exporting goods to and from Puerto Rico and neighboring countries.

In addition to its role in cargo shipping, San Juan Port is a major hub for cruise tourism in the Caribbean. It serves as a popular port of call for cruise lines operating in the region, attracting millions of passengers each year. Cruise ships dock at the port's cruise terminals, allowing passengers to explore the vibrant city of San Juan and its surrounding attractions.

If you’re feeling the need to let loose, Senor Frogs is just to your left, and is a fun spot to grab a drink and engage in some shenanigans with locals and tourists alike.
