Glitz and Glamour



Description:

We wanted to visit El Conquistador, one of the island's best resorts, but at the same time we wanted to get a better feel of the island before being sequestered away. The Ritz in Isla Verde commands a high price, but it is the most private of the large hotels in San Juan. The nightlife in San Juan is somewhat reminiscent of Miami beach, with the added bonus of casinos. Once in El Conquistador, we decided to take advantage of some of the nearby excursions rather than just lounging around the pool and beach, and these certainly made the trip memorable.

Day 1 - Carolina, San Juan


After a nice afternoon at the beach, we had an exquisite dinner at Il Mulinno, then played a little in the casino. We took a short cab over to the rooftop lounge at the Water Club.

Day 2 - Carolina


We spent the day at the pool. At night we tried the casino at El San Juan. It's a little bigger than the one at the ritz, but mainly impressive for the gorgeous lobby. We went a bit early to the nightclub Bravas and left as it was starting to fill up at 11.

Day 3 - Canovanas


We arranged for pick up from El Conquistador, which was about an hour's drive from San Juan. There are plenty of activities, restaurants, pools, and a casino at the resort. The beach is a little disappointing however. The resort is very close to the bioluminescent bay, and we arranged for a sunset kayak tour. The kayaking was not difficult, but it is a little strenuous overall.
