san juan puerto rico
Explore an island paradise.
Spice it up in San Juan for three glorious days and nights before your ship even sets sail. Add a Celebrity City Stay to your cruise.
Welcome to Puerto Rico. We'll meet you at the airport and take you to La Concha Resort or The Condado Plaza Hilton—both luxurious resorts. The lavish La Concha Resort combines 1950's Tropical Modernism with Caribbean-chic flair. And The Condado Plaza Hilton is chic, casual, stylish elegance at its finest. Puerto Rico means "rich port" and both these resorts more than deliver.
If it's fun in the sun you crave, you're in luck. The white sandy beaches that Puerto Rico is famous for are right outside your hotel door. Ready to explore the city? Visit the experts at the Celebrity Cruises Hospitality Desk to book tours, reserve restaurants, and gather tips. They're here to make sure your stay is everything you could dream of (and then some).
Puerto Ricans love the nightlife. The hotel lobby bars and connecting casinos are popular evening hangouts for locals and visitors alike. Feeling more low-key? Wine and dine at Perla—the floating seafood restaurant designed like a giant shell—located in the La Concha Resort. Or visit Pikayo, the renowned flagship restaurant in The Condado Plaza Hilton.
After your complimentary breakfast, set off on a guided tour of the Bacardi Distillery, the world's largest distiller of natural spirits. Learn about the history and distillation process. Then head to the Bacardi cocktail lounge for a little taste of the goods.
Continue on a guided walking tour of the historic city of Old San Juan. Take in unique colonial architecture and tropical colors, as you work up an appetite for a special Puerto Rican prepared lunch. You'll be greeted by a chef, a mojito, and a traditional Puerto Rican appetizer. The chef will conduct a cooking class lunch and learn-style. You'll master the art of Mofongo, a local favorite, consisting of fried green plantains, chicken broth and seafood, meat, and/or vegetables.
Return to your hotel for some R&R. Or explore some of the nearby coastal restaurants for some more local fare. Visit the experts at the Celebrity Cruises® Hospitality Desk for recommendations, reviews, and reservations.
After breakfast, take a dip in the hotel pool. Or grab a snorkel and go for a dip along the Condado shoreline, close to both resorts. The morning is yours to decide.
Embark on a half-day guided tour of El Yunque Rainforest—the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest system. The forest is a bird sanctuary and home to the famous Coqui—a native Puerto Rican frog. The revered Coqui is a Puerto Rican cultural symbol known for his distinctive call. And once you hear it, you'll know why. After an early evening dinner arranged just for you, local experts will guide you to La Coca Falls and Yokahu Lookout Tower. Both spots offer breathtaking vantage points and photo ops. So get your camera ready. Take in the trees, orchids, and wildlife that call El Yunque Rainforest home.
Cozy up with a nightcap in your hotel lobby. Or soak up your last evening of San Juan nightlife with the locals at a restaurant, bar, or club.
