PORT OF SAN JUAN

San Juan Bay is almost entirely protected by land, about three miles long and varying in width from .6 to 1.3 miles. It is the only harbor on the north coast of Puerto Rico which affords protection in all weather. Most of its passenger piers are within walking distance to the historic Old Town of San Juan.
