While we were in San Juan we learned about the ferry that crossed the bay to Cataño.
There’s nothing much to see in Cataño unless you want to go to a bona fide grocery store or tour the Bacardi factory.
The ferry is caught on the south side of San Juan near the docks where the cruise ships come in. (Apparently Charlie and I just missed seeing the cruise ship that slid into and sunk the dock is San Juan.)
We were supposed to buy tickets but didn’t realize it until we were in the line to board. The gate guard let us board anyway.
We cruised cross the bay — about 15 minutes — and disembarked at Cataño.
We walked about a block away from the docks to a large statue of a Taino Indian statue at waterfront park .
Our final destination was the grocery store where Charlie purchased all kinds of coconut-flavored items: coconut water, coconut macaroons, coconut meringues.
We walked back to the boat dock building and this time purchased tickets for our return voyage.
Please note that the tickets were 50 cents and 25 cents respectively. We could have cruised back and forth all afternoon at that price.
We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the cruise.
Have you ever been on a cruise ship?
