Congratulations on your wedsite! We are honored to be a part of your special day. Thank you for choosing wedsite.com to share your wedding plans and experiences with your friends and family.
We're so happy to be surrounded by our amazing friends and family. We hope you'll be able to join us for a welcome party. Details forthcoming.
There will be a shuttle available to take people to and from the wedding venue to the hotel.
If you are not staying at the hotel, if you would prefer to take the shuttle rather than driving yourself, you are welcome. Simply RSVP in this section too so we ensure there are enough seats.
El Condado Plaza has several restaurants on site. However, if you'd like to explore the area, here are a few recommentations:
Paseo Caribe: About a half mile from the hotel (across the lagoon) is a new complex with space to walk, restaurants (Rosa Mexicano and Fogo De Chao), as well as a Martini Bar.
Parque La Ventana al Mar: an half mile in the oposite direction is a park overlooking the ocean. The park is surrounded by restaurants and shops (albeit expensive shops).
Ave. Ashford: The main road in El Condado is about a mile and a half long has a wide variety of stores, restaurants and bars. You wont have to go far to find places to eat or grab a drink to escape the heat and humidity.
Old San Juan: If you wanted to walk, be warned its a 2 mile hike in the hot sun. Once there, there are pleanty of siteseeing, scenic photo, and wining and dining opportunities. Some key street with great restaurant and bar options include: Calle San Sebastian, Calle Fortaleza, and Calle Recinto Sur.
Old San Juan
Visiting Old San Juan is an absolute must for anyone who has never been to Puerto Rico. Simply walking down the 500 year old streets, enjoying the architecture and bright colors is a treat. When you get hot, you stop for a cold beverage, delicous food, and souvenier shoppinng.
Ashford Avenue is the center of activity in El Condado. Filled with hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops, you can easily spend an afternoon wandering around El Condado.
If you do want shop or find yourself second-guessing your wedding outfit, there are two malls that can easily suit your needs.
In all honesty, Puerto Rico's most beautiful beaches are not in San Juan. You can however spend a great day at the local beach in Ocean Park. The Hotel also has access to a small beach over the Condado Lagoon.
May is not high season for travel to Puerto Rico, though being a long weekend, flights may be a little more expensive. Flights on Tuesdays or Wednesdays generally cost less.
Make sure your ticket flies into San Juan (SJU). There are other airports in Puerto Rico but they are 2 and 3 hours away from San Juan.
Feel free to contact Aimee if you need help picking a reasonably-priced ticket.
We've booked a wedding block at El Condado Plaza. The basic room rate is $139 per night and is available from May 23rd to June 1st.

El Condado offers lots to do without having to rent a car. We will also offer a shuttle to take people to and from the wedding. However, if you'd like more flexibility or want to explore beyond the metro area, you'll easily find reasonably priced rental car.
Keep in mind, not all rental companies are on the airport property. Some are farther away and will require you to wait curbside for the shuttle to pick you up and bring you to the rental car company.
Rental car companies on the airport property:
If you dont want to rent a car for the entire trip or you change your mind and decide you want car access, the following rental companies have offices within walking distance of the hotels:
