We visit Old San Juan, including the Spanish forts. We take a beach day at Condado Beach in San Juan. Get a glimpse of the primary places to rent a boat slip in Fajardo as we tour three marinas in Fajardo including Puerto Del Rey Marina, Sunbay Marina, and Chico Marina.

Old San Juan is a beautiful remnant of history and is a must-see for anyone who enjoys historical sites and old cities. Countries fought for control of this tiny, yet strategic island for centuries. Generations of soldiers have lived and worked within the forts. Visitors today are as inspired by these stories as they are by the beauty of the architecture and the ingenuity of design and engineering of this World Heritage Site.

Condado Beach is a very popular spot in San Juan for tourists craving a Caribbean beach resort experience with all the vibrant life of a city just steps away. It attracts a diverse crowd, from families to famous celebrities.

Puerto Del Rey Marina is the biggest marina I've ever visited. It also has extensive amenities on site, including restaurants, marine stores, butcher shop, game room, and more.

The biggest thing that stood out to us at Sunbay Marina was the lack of protection from the rougher waters, and alot of full dumpsters. Unfortunately, first impressions count and Sunbay did not make a great one for us.

Chico Marina seemed more upscale and boutique than Puerto Del Rey, with fewer practical amenities available. However, it was cozy and seemed like a great spot to keep a boat. Plus it has Cinco Nudos (Five Knots), a local restaurant with a delightful menu.

With very little sailing experience, we have much to learn and skills to acquire. Join us as we fumble through the early days of life as cruisers on our Knysna 440 sailing catamaran.
