Day 1: San Juan, Puerto Rico |

Upon arrival in Puerto Rico, meet your private transfer bound for the The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan, where you will stay for two nights in an oceanview guestroom. Set along the golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Unwind in sophisticated elegance, signature service, exquisite views, marble baths and premium amenities including indulgent bedding and exclusive Asprey bath products. In addition, enjoy a refreshing outdoor swimming pool overlooking the beach, 12,000 square-foot spa and state-of-the-art fitness center, plus a lively casino and exceptional restaurants including a classic island cuisine, premium steakhouse and old-world Italian fare for a mouthwatering dining experience.

After you are settled in, venture out and discover San Juan on your own with all its laid back charm. Less than two miles from the hotel is The Mall of San Juan, where you will find trendy shops and designer boutiques. Or, discover 500 years of charm on the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, filled with shops, cafes and historical sites such as San Cristobal Fortress. Across the bay, visit the Bacardi Rum Distillery, museums and tropical gardens. On the north end of the island, adventure seekers will delight in Camuy Caves, its spectacular underground rivers and caverns holding enormous stalactites and stalagmites. Later, catch the sunset along Avenida Isle Verde and dine al fresco to the sounds of the crashing waves and touch of the soft ocean breezes.

Day2: San Juan, Puerto Rico |

Following a delicious breakfast, board your transfer this afternoon for an extraordinary evening on the guided Bioluminscent Kayak Excursion. Board a kayak and glide through serene lagoon waters at Las Cabezas de San Juan under the darkness of night and the Fajardo's historical lighthouse. Marvel at the glowing bay waters as they light up the darkness for an unforgettable experience.

Day 3: San Juan, Puerto Rico |

For a grand finale in Puerto Rico, spend your next day immersed in more treasures of the island. Visit Iglesia de San Jose, the second oldest church in the Americas or head to the elegant Plaza Las Delicias, noted for its fountains, monuments and aromatic bakeries. Nature lovers will find paradise in the Guanica Forest Reserve with its hiking and biking trails, and colorful flora and fauna, or relax poolside with a refreshing tropical beverage.

After an exciting day, meet your private transfer and head to your cruise or homebound flight. Until we meet again ...
