Default San Juan termianl for AOS--any convience stores or crew stores nearby to buy pop?

I have sailed out of San Juan before and I see to recall a very small store in the terminal or it might have been a crew store for convience items. Since I am flying into San Juan and I don't want to pack my Dr. Pepper or Cherry Coke in my suitcase but buy it near the terminal and than just carry it on board. It has been several years since I sailed out of San Juan. Does anyone know if such a store still exists? If not, is there a store within walking distance of the pier? Also, does anyone know of any stores near the ports in Antiqua, St. Lucia or St. Maarteen?

I think your best bet, would be to ask your taxi driver to stop at a store on the way to the pier. Yes, I do remember the store you are talking about, not sure if its still there.

It's been a couple of years, but I don't recall seeing a store at the terminal.

I'd go with Donna's suggestion.

In October we walked back to the ship from the shopping area,and, don't remember seeing a convenient store at all along the way, or in the terminal either...

Sailed out of SJ in Sept. and don't remember seeing a store at the pier. I would either have the taxi driver stop or buy at the airport before getting in taxi. There is places to buy drinks in all three ports mentioned both at the pier and at convenient stores nearby. Enjoy your cruise it was one of our favorites.
