I am going on a cruise next month and one of the stops is in San Juan, PR. Someone said that they had free trolleys that would take you into the old town. Is this true? Or do they have trolleys at all?

P.S. What should the weather be like there in mid November?

From the cruise ship terminal, you are in walking distance to Old San Juan, unless you are disabled, a trolley in not necessary, but yes they do run from the dock area.

Thanks, gemstone. I am not disabled, but will probably jump on the trolley, cause I'm lazy! LOL.

Where your ship docks is only two or three blocks from OSJ but another idea to consider is to catch the trolley or a publico (taxi) up to El Morro and walk/wander (downhill) through Old San Juan back to the dock.

Where the cruise ships dock is one of the pick-up trolley locations for passengers. The trolley will take you throughout Old San Juan and also El Morro. It's a fun and inexpensive way to get around for tourists. Do not take a taxi...you will just be overcharged. We always take the local bus, trolley or el tren urbano when there and it offers great convenience and ease. Have a terrific time!

There are trolleys, but cruises dock in 2 different areas: one in Old San Juan and the other across the bay, where the convention center is. Puerto Rico Is The Place: Cruising From Puerto Rico

The weather will be warm....but hurricane season lasts up to mid November.
