    Need help tracking down Pirates of the Caribbean answer

    I just got back from 7 days in various islands in the Caribbean. I have a lot of photos of forts that were built for defense from pirates (so the signs said) that look like the fort in the Pirates ride, and pictures from underwater caves and grottos that look like the caves and grottos in the ride. There's even a cannon and ammunition ramp I took pictures of that looks like the final scene in the ride.

    So my question is, for an upcoming post, is there any information on actual locations that the imagineers used for the ride, either via photos, or in person visits? Cities or islands in particular?

    In the book "A Brush With Disney" it talks about Herb Ryman doing research for Pirates in San Juan. it specifically has drawins of an old gate at the end of Christo steet, and a Tavern, as well as pictures of Ryman at a fort (probably El Morro)

    Perfect... all of which I have pictures of, and which match portions of the attraction. I'll do a photo posting later this weekend!
