    My cousin got married at a Spanish resort and the base of the El Yunque Rain Forest and Luquillo beach. Everyone loved it. Luquillo is a gorgeous beach, and the rainforest is nice to explore in.

      Her resort was called the Rio Grande if you want to look it up.

          I am hoping for PR in April or May of 2009! Still undecided as to exact location.

            Hi All,

            Puerto Rico has three major coastal resorts near San Juan (within 45 min driving time):

            Gran Meli¡ (no longer all inclusive) - Puerto Rico Vacations| Puerto Rico Resorts|Gran Meli¡

            El Conquistador (my all time favorite) - Puerto Rico Hotels & Beachfront Resorts - El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa

            Wyndham Riomar - Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa is a Beautiful Puerto Rico Resort

            These resorts are large, and offer wonderful beachfront locations that are relatively private for a wedding celebration. They are, however, removed from the San Juan metro area. Some of my couples don't like that because they find it is more costly for their guests who may consider staying at the resort instead of at any of the many options available in the San Juan area. Also, they are not near many of the attractions in San Juan (like the Old City, among others).

            The smaller San Juan hotels are lovely but their beach areas are NOT private, meaning that the general public has access to those areas. Thus, having a private ceremony is a bit more difficult. Some examples include:

            The Condado Plaza Hotel - San Juan Hotels & Puerto Rico Accommodations - Condado Plaza San Juan Hotel & Casino

            La Concha - La Concha - A Renaissance Resort San Juan Puerto Rico

            Ritz-Carlton (My favorite in this class of hotel) - The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan Hotel: A Luxury Hotel & Resort in Puerto Rico

            Outside of the San Juan area and the resorts there are many Inns and other properties but they are further away from San Juan. Still, they may be worth a look, for example:

            Villa Monta±a Beach Resort (Caribbean Holidays beach resort - Budget Luxury resort Puerto Rico)

            Puerto Rico is relatively affordable and accessible from anywhere within the continental US, there are no passports required for US citizens, the dollar is the official currency, and most everyone speaks English. More importantly, it is as safe and orderly here as any of the states of the Union.


            - James

              I stayed at the El Conquistador with some girls friends a few years ago and loved it! It was beautiful!! Its a good place for a DW bc its compact with enough room for activities. The restaurants are a little pricey but it's paradise!!! The beach is amazing!!!

              Best of luck!!

                this is so helpful. my fiance and I were engaged in Vieques and immediately thought of PR for our destination wedding. we don't want to be married in Old San Juan, or in "new" San Juan - we want a resort feeling and a beach wedding (so no El Conquistador).

                wedding will be in june 2009, so maybe the W will be open by then. does anyone know how expensive the xfer flight is to Vieques, and how often it flies? we took the ferry from Fajardo when we were there in March. otherwise, we're considering Punta Cana

                btw, a celebrity couple stole my guy's engagement plan & i read about it in Destination Weddings mag!

                  I can't remember exactly but I believe it was more than $100/person. You should be able to get exact amounts online.
