Long Weekend in Puerto Rico

Some time ago I have posted some Travel Destinations, namely China, Paris, Camping, Romania, etc.
Now I want to add another next destination that I have qouted below.
Puerto Rico is an ideal Caribbean Island for a island for number of reasons; history - with buildings that date back to the 1520's there is no older "western culture" in the Western Hemisphere. Christopher Columbus claimed Puerto Rico for Spain in 1493. Food - Puerto Rican cuisine is Spanish & Caribbean influenced, outdoor activities, water sports, great beaches and ease of travel. Its a "fly and drive" destination. Puerto Rico is also a "techno-tropic" destination, meaning all major USA cell phone carriers work island wide with no extra charges incurred for use. US citizens can easily travel to Puerto Rico - no passport is required and money does not have to be exchanged. With over 750 domestic and International flights weekly its a destination that is well served from both the mainland USA as well abroad including non stop flights from select locations within Europe. There are a number of resorts to stay at on the island - two good choices in and around San Juan are the following: For luxury at a rather reasonable price consider the Sheraton at the Conference Center located about 10-15 minutes from the airport and only 5 minutes from Old San Juan. This rather new Sheraton boasts a beautiful outdoor swimming deck on the 4th floor overlooking Old San Juan and the harbor (large cruise ships often docked here). The pool is very long and next to the hot tub and bar. Fake grass is kind to your feet surrounding the plethora of lounge chairs. A full spa, an on site casino (coupon given upon check-in), a full self service business center and Choices restaurant all complement a stay here.

Oh, irony, oh temptation :).

This promotional invitation to fly to Paradise at the same time as we are forced to dramatically cut our expenses, prepare for years of hardship and our financial walls coming tumbling down... ( :))
