San Juan

Opuštajuća šetnja uz obalu mora

San Juan je jedna od najomiljenijih destinacija brodova na svijetu, a većina njih pristaje u luci u starome gradu.
 
Sve do nedavnih sedamdesetih godina 20. stoljeća je stari San Juan (Viejo San Juan), s kolekcijom španjolskih kolonijalnih ostataka i u samo malo boljem stanju od urušenog carstva koje ga je stvorilo, bio podsjetnik na neka bolja vremena. Danas, nakon velike i pažljive obnove, ovo područje veliko sedam blokova smatra se jednim od najbolje očuvanih blaga španjolske kolonijalne arhitekture i nalazi se na popisu Svjetske baštine.

Prije nego što nastavite s vašim odmorom po Karibima, jednostavno se morate zaustaviti u San Juanu sa strmim, uskim ulicama prekrivenim glatkim ciglama u duginim bojama poznatima kao adoquines, a koje su se originalno koristile kao balast brodovima, te njegovim zgradama - od kojih su neke najstarije na zapadnoj hemisferi - sa svijetlim pastelnim fasadama i balkonima od kovanog željeza sa cvijećem u cvatu. Stari grad zauzima rt na četiri kilometara dugom otoku (s kopnom je povezan preko mosta) koji skriva zaljev San Juan, stoljećima ključnu luku za ulazak u Novi svijet.

Originalno je bio poznat kao Puerto Rico ili "bogata luka" jer je zbog svojeg položaja bio dobra stanica za utovar. Započnite svoje lutanje starim gradom niz Paseo de la Princesa, užurbanu promenadu prekrivenu kamenim kockama i krenite prema zapadu uzduž južnog gradskog zida. Stroga, sivo-bijela neoklasicistička zgrada koju ćete vidjeti je La Princesa. Izgrađena je kao zatvor 1837. godine, a danas se u njoj nalaze glavni PRTC uredi, kao i galerija u kojoj su izloženi radovi suvremenih portorikanskih umjetnika. Gradske zidine, poznate kao La Muralla, su i više nego impresivne. Sve do kraja 19. stoljeća su okruživale stari San Juan s 3.900 metara pješčenjaka, a kulminiraju tvrđavom El Morro na rtu.

    Favoured by Puerto Rico's rich volcanic soil and climate, coffee has numbered among the island's major crops since the 18th century and has given rise to a rich coffee culture, a taste of which you can savour on this interesting tour through the historical district of San Juan. To set the mood, the tour begins with a delicious cup of freshly brewed Puerto Rican café con leche, to which your friendly barista will add his own personal latté-art flourish. As you then stroll through the streets of Old San Juan, your guide will tell you about the island's historical ties with the black beverage as well as how coffee and the church are connected. A photo stop will be made at Plaza de Colón and the statue of Christopher Columbus, which was erected to mark the 400th anniversary of his discovery of Puerto Rico. You'll also get to see some of the oldest churches in the western hemisphere, the main Plaza de Armas with its "Four Seasons” fountain as well as San Juan city hall, a replica of the one in Madrid. Your historical walk ends at the shopping district, where you can sit down and try some iced blends of coffee and tea with flavours such as coconut truffle, chocolate chai or papaya ginger.

      Puerto Rico

      Priroda i suvremenost
      Priroda i suvremenost


      Portoriko zauzima ključno mjesto na Karibima. To je posljednji veći otok prije nego što se rastuća ruka Antila spusti na jug prema Venezueli i podijeli ga na male otoke Leeward i Windward

       
       
      Odmor u Portoriku može biti jedinstvena prilika da se doživi njegov jedinstveni status jer je otok udružen sa SAD-om, zbog čega je to potpuno različit svijet od susjednih otoka, a udaljenost između njih može se mjeriti ne samo u kilometrima, već i u dolarima. To je mjesto koje kombinira otočki život s razinom infrastrukture koja se rijetko viđa u ovom području: izvrsne međudržavne autoceste omogućuju putnicima da velikom brzinom stignu od koraljnih grebena do restorana s pet zvjezdica. Američki utjecaj najjači je u San Juanu gdje čak ni bedemi El Morroa - koji su tijekom 500 godina odbijali europske napadače - nisu uspjeli spriječiti dolazak američkih restorana s brzom hranom i trgovačkih lanaca. No srce glavnog grada i dalje je zadržalo izrazito latinoamerički karakter, a stari San Juan prava je riznica pastelne španjolske kolonijalne arhitekture na predivno obnovljenim kamenim ulicama. 
       
      Za vrijeme vašeg krstarenja po Portoriku, čak i u napučenom glavnom gradu, teško da ćete vidjeti nečistu plažu, a priroda je uglavnom netaknuta izvan velikih gradova - posebice u džunglovitoj planinskoj unutrašnjosti, na relativno skrivenim plažama duž južne obale i na otocima.
