Where to stay

The smallish, adults-only Condado Ocean Club is a modern oasis of four-star fun on Condado Beach in San Juan. Dreamers Welcome hospitality group has a number of high-style apartments and home rentals nearby, plus the gorgeous Dreamcatcher boutique hotel near Ocean Park Beach. The refurbished Fairmont El San Juan delivers the glitz at Isla Verde, and the upscale Palacio Provincial in the old city was once a colonial-era government building, its historic charm restored to luxe good looks.

Out of the capital, Casa Alternavida wellness retreat specializes in personal development in Río Grande, while Combate Beach Resort offers serene seclusion in the southwest at Cabo Rojo. The Hilton and the Ponce Plaza hotels and casinos are also on our radar in the south-coast city of Ponce. DISCOVERPUERTORICO.COM
