San Juan

Tonight I'll finally finish recapping our honeymoon. Our last day was spent in San Juan, before a late afternoon flight home. Rather than sit at the airport all day we booked an excursion through the cruise line which included a transfer to the airport. This worked out really well because we got to explore a bit and they transferred our luggage to the airport where it was waiting for us.

The tour started with a short drive to Old San Juan, where we got about an hour to walk around. The problem with this was that hardly anything in Old San Juan is open on Sunday mornings. We walked to one of the forts and enjoyed the view.
 The streets of Old San Juan are also pretty gorgeous!
 The second half of this tour is a trip to the Bacardi Rum factory. The tour includes two free drinks per person, so we wasted no time and had our last rum punches of the trip. The tour continues with a tram ride over to the factory buildings where you learn more about the history of Bacardi Rum.
After the rum factory tour it's off to the airport. We were really pleased with this excursion. The only issue was that we didn't find out about it until we were on board the ship. We'd been struggling to find an airport transfer and tour before our trip and couldn't find anything. We were pleasantly surprised though when we went to the excursions desk and found this tour.

By this point in the trip we were EXHAUSTED and just ready to be home. What a memorable two weeks it had been with all the last minute wedding prep, the wedding, and then our honeymoon.
