Puerto Rico offers everything a vacationer could dream of: exotic scenery, exciting adventure, culture, and luxurious San Juan, Puerto Rico hotels. That being said, if it is your first time to our beautiful island, here a few things to help you make the most of your experience.
One of the most amazing features of Puerto Rico is that the weather stays constant throughout the year. Our not-too-hot and not-too-cold temperatures mean that you can pack lightly. We recommend warm-weather clothing, beach attire, and a few sexy outfits for nights on the town. If you plan on embarking on a hiking adventure in the El Yunque Rainforest, a light rain jacket is also a good idea. And remember, since Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the U.S., if you are an American citizen you don’t need to worry about a passport.
While a small amount of cash is always wise to keep on hand to cover tips and purchases from street vendors, in Puerto Rico, most local businesses will not accept large bills. However, most places you visit do accept Visa and MasterCard, so it’s best to just plan on using those for the majority of purchases.
At most San Juan, Puerto Rico hotels, especially at the Condado Vanderbilt, or most local businesses you will be able to speak perfect English with the staff. That being said, if you plan on exploring some of the smaller villages in Puerto Rico, you might need to know the basics of the Spanish language, including common greetings, phrases, and expressions.
From a breathtaking hiking trip through the El Yunque Rainforest to a memorable kayaking trip to the Bioluminescent Bay to experiencing the sights, sounds, and tastes of Puerto Rican culture at Calle del Cristo, there is no shortage of activities to rejuvenate your soul. We suggest creating a list of must-see sights for your vacation, but leave some room for spontaneity, because you will come across a lot of hidden gems through your adventures on this picturesque island.
You won’t regret venturing out to tourist attractions while on your spring vacation in Puerto Rico, but it’s always relaxing to stay on the hotel grounds as well. After all, isn’t one of the main points of a vacation to de-stress? Creating a serene atmosphere is what we do best at Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, and we are here to make your trip the most rejuvenating one yet. Imagine yourself relaxing on a private pool-front cabana with your favorite book, or indulging in a massage at our lavish spa, or savoring first-class cuisine at one of our fine dining restaurants—it will be heaven.
