    Itinerary

    Day 1 Welcome to Puerto Rico!

    Touch down in gorgeous Puerto Rico! Enjoy a comfortable transfer to your hotel right near San Juan, get settled, then head outside for some sun. Boasting four pristine pools and two-miles of beach access, there's tons of places for you to have fun and relax at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel. You can sip on your favorite cocktail at their swim-up bars, or lounge back with poolside service.

    Decorated to reflect the vibrant nightlife in the 60's in Puerto Rico, the hotel features island culture decor and classic mixology in their bars, as well as live entertainment like DJ parties. Ask the hotel staff about what events are happening during your stay, and don't miss out on these opportunities to experience Puerto Rico's lively culture.

    Day 2 Puerto Rico

    Right on the award-winning Isla Verde Beach, you'll find the extravagant El San Juan Beach Club Restaurant and Bar. After relaxing on the beach and dipping your toes in the ocean, head over to the Beach Club for delicious coastal cuisine surrounded by beautiful beach scenery. You may also wish to get your adrenaline racing with aquatic activities like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply sun bathe by the pool.

    Make sure to check out the hotel's iconic BRAVA nightclub, or visit the famed 15,000-square-foot Foxwoods El San Juan Casino.

    Day 3 Puerto Rico

    No trip to Puerto Rico is complete without strolling through the historically charming streets of Old San Juan, which conveniently is just a few minutes away from the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel. Travel back in time as you walk through the oldest city in the U.S., filled with cobblestone streets and pastel-colored buildings.

    As for what to do in Old San Juan, make sure to check out the 16th century El Morro fortress, or the equally impressive Castillo San Cristóbal fortress. You can also visit the Casa Blanca museum, or appreciate the architecture of Catedral de San Juan.

    Alternatively, pay a visit to the Bacardi Rum Distillery where you can experience a once-in-a-lifetime rum tour and/or create your own bottle! Enjoy another night of delicious dining at your hotel's premier restaurants featuring international and local cuisine, and rest well for your trip home tomorrow.

    Day 4 Depart Puerto Rico

    Your trip to Puerto Rico has come to an end – it's time to pack up your souvenirs, take your transfer to the airport, and board your flight home.

    Had my first (and last!) group tour.

    Pros:
    Comfortable coach, very friendly tour guide.

    Cons:
    The hotels were consistently poor quality with either faulty AC/Heating units and iffy shower facilities (very few had hot water).

    There were an alarming number of “mandatory” stops where we were made to be quiet and pay attention to a merchant showing how they made their wares, then a sales pitch to try to get us to buy things. There was a hefty amount of shaming from the tour guide if we bought items from somewhere else.

    The included meals were often very rushed and no matter that the fault lied within the poor quality service of the restaurants chosen ahead of time by the travel agency, we were still hurried and “shamed” if we didn’t eat super fast once the meal arrived.

    Very, very little free time to explore some of the sights. This was my own fault as I should have researched more about the speed of these trips.

    One day was almost nothing but travel in the coach, from morning to night, and it definitely effected the health and well-being of many in the tour group.

    I guess I’m glad I experienced it once but I’ll go back to just solo trips from here on out.

    I have shared this deal with so many people since purchasing it. It is really an unheard of value. From the JetBlue round-trip flights to the three nights at Virgin hotels in Las Vegas we were very taken care of.
