Puerto Rico is back!  I have just returned and could not be more excited about the island and its recovery.  Press the reset button and go back in time to what you may have always thought Puerto Rico was about.  

Earlier this week, I was invited to see 10 of the top hotels and make up my own mind about Puerto Rico and see if it is ready. There was no one more with negative thoughts than me prior to going.  Now that I have seen it for myself, I can say that it is more than ready and the hotels presented are offered at prices that are like hitting the “reset” button in time. 

San Juan is very much like Miami South Beach; it is a twist that I am sure everyone will enjoy.

When I saw this hotel I thought of cool upscale and stately resorts like those on South Beach in Miami.  La Concha’s Ocean and Tower provides accommodations that are exceptional in many ways with the coolest beachside views around.  The hotel with its rooms and suites are located right in the epicenter of San Juan’s social scene. With a tropical modernism, single loaded design and dazzling ocean views – you will call in love with Puerto Rico.  I loved the meeting space for your group here.
