Distance from Caribe Hilton to Old San Juan and other question.

We are staying at Caribe Hilton pre cruise. Because of flights and other people we have to meet we only have a couple of hours to walk around. Is Old San Juan and Morro within walking distance of the Caribe? If not - how far with a cab? Is it worth is to go just for two hours? The fort sounded very interesting - is that in the same direction as Old San Juan? Thanks for any help. sue

It is a less than 10 minute cab ride from the Hilton to OSJ. El Morro is at the far end Of OSJ

It would be fun to see El Morro -- you will see it as you glide out to sea on your cruise ship. I'd take the cab there, spend about an hour exploring it, and maybe check out a couple little streets in OSJ, then grab a cab back to the hotel (I assume you're headed back there before you turn around and go all the way back to the docks.)

A cab ride to Old San Juan takes no more than 10 minutes and costs about $8. It is definately worth it to go for two hours.

We had a couple of hours layover from another island in sanjuan. We stored our luggage in lockers at the airport and took a cab to old SJ for a few hours. Definitely worthwhile. The Isla Verdi beach and El San Juan Hotel is also nice. (We ended up there on another layover.)
