Experience the Vibrant Sounds of Puerto Rico
Nothing sets the tone for your Caribbean getaway quite like the sense of sound. From the soulful beats of Puerto Rico’s famous salsa music to the natural sounds of tropical birds and ocean waves, you’ll have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the sounds of the island during your stay at the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel in San Juan.
Start your day by lounging in an exclusive cabana on Condado Vanderbilt beach with the sound of waves crashing on the sand. Close your eyes and slip into relaxation while your personal pool and beach butler brings you food and refreshments to your heart’s content. Then, cool off by taking a dip in the ocean and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the splashing water and the ocean breeze.
No luxury vacation in Puerto Rico would be complete without experiencing the traditional music of the island. A unique blend of indigenous, Spanish, and African instruments and sounds, Puerto Rican music includes many of the Caribbean genres you would hope to hear like salsa, merengue, and bolero, along with more modern classics like the upbeat songs of reggaeton. Spend the evening listening to the spirited vocals and lively percussion of salsa music at the famous Nuyorican Café, a quick drive from your hotel in San Juan.
Surround yourself with the exciting sounds of slot machines spinning, dice rolling and cards shuffling at one of San Juan’s luxury casinos. Play with the best at Casino del Mar, located just steps away in La Concha Resort, the sister property to Condado Vanderbilt. In this 24/7 casino you’ll experience the perfect blend of elegance and excitement, listening to the sounds of laughter, cheering and jackpot winning late into the night.
Less than an hour away from your San Juan, Puerto Rico resort lies the El Yunque National Forest, a must-see on the island. This tropical rain forest is home to hundreds of plants and animals, treating the ears to a symphony of bird songs and the rustle of the wind through the trees. Roll down the windows on a leisurely drive through the lush greenery and stop at one of the wildlife viewing areas to fully experience the sounds of the forest.
