If you're lucky enough to have a cruise ship docked at Old San Juan (we weren't), check in to your shop and walk about 100 meters to your left to the ferry terminal for Catanyo. The trip across the harbor is scenic, cool, takes about...More

It's cheap ($0.50 each way), gets you halfway to Casa Bacardi and gives you a great view of the bay. From the port you can get a shared van to Casa Bacardi with a minimal fee.

Known by "Lancha de Cataño" by locals. Is a very cheap way to get to San Juan from Cataño. For less than $1

The ferry is $0.50 each way, and you can buy your round trip ticket from the ticket window. It is easy to find, clean, and a nice way to enjoy being a local.
