I've been there. Stayed at the hotel too. The restaurant in the hotel is pretty nice, so is the gambling.

You'll have a sweet time. If you own a kite, I --strongly-- reccomend you bring it. Plan on spending at least 1 day in Old San Juan. Park at the bottom of the town and walk up. Start at the old prison and work your way upwards from there. Try and get to the fort at the top of Old San Juan by 1pmish so you have the time to take a tour.

Mortehl, I've already returned! And I did have a pretty sweet time, but the Caribe Hilton no longer has it'* own Casino. We did take a cab to another Casino and gambled one night (and lost, lol). I did the tour of Old San Juan, it was very enjoyable and historic. The jail/fort was very cool, I wish I would've brought my camera that day, too late now huh? I'll try to post some pics later on.

Joe.

All in all, I had a pretty good time. I wish Verizon wouldnt have turned it into so much of a business trip so it would've felt more like an actual vacation, but I still enjoyed myself. Enjoy the pic'*!

Joe.

D'oh. Next time I'll read more carefully :P

I love PR. My wife'* grand parents live there in a small village on the western side of the island with a private beach so we basically get free vacation with literally miles of quality beach all to ourselves.
