What to do in San Juan arriving by a cruise ship

Have only been to the airport here years ago. None of the cruise line's excursions sound good. Any suggestions? We are in port from noon to 8pm. Hate not to see anything on this island and anything exciting. Please offer suggestions. Got great suggestions 2 years ago regarding snorkling in Bon Aire. Thanks so much. Ginny

Walk around Old San Juan and visit the forts. Do some shopping and perhaps grab a bite to eat. Maybe you could do some water sports by Isla Verde. But you will not have much time to go out of San Juan for exploring.

In addition to NYTOPARIS recommendation consider taking the ferry over to the town of Catano and then a short cab ride to the Bacardi distillery. Great grounds right on the water, good overview of the rum making process and the history of Bacardi and then samples. Great gift shop as well. But I'd do the forts and walking the cobblestone streets first!
