Budget-Minded, Single 24-Year-Olds Trying to Plan Our Trip

Hi Everyone,

My girlfriends and I are trying to plan a short trip out to PR for the end of March. We were planning on staying in/near San Juan and would like to know what other people have to say about the nightlife, beaches, and hotels in this area (or recommend another area). We're on somewhat of a budget, but we'd like to stay somewhere decent. We pretty much plan on spending our days at the beach/shopping, and our nights drinking/dancing. We are mostly single so we don't want to be stuck in an area full of honeymooners/older couples, and we're all in our early-mid twenties so we don't want to be bombarded with the 18 year-olds either. Any ideas?

Your input is MUCH appreciated!

Thanks!

Condado is most likely where you want to be. That's where a lot of the nightlife and shopping is. Coral Princess mentioned above is a great suggestion. If that's not available, you can also check out the Canarios Inns for small B&B's, also El Consulado. For larger hotels look at San Juan Beach or Radisson Ambassador.

cee, the previous posters are giving you great advice. Just to clarify , they are talking about staying in San Juan. the Condado is a beachfront neighborhood which is centrally locted between Old San Juan which is a cool place to visit both during the day and at night, and Isla verde which has a few notable nightspots of its own like the El San Juan ( particularly the nightclub Brava) and the rooftop bar at the Water Club. Evening attire tends to be a little dressier than say Vegas. More skirts and dresses, less tops and jeans. Unlike LA San Juan is compact so its possible to trek (by cab) from the Condado to Old San Juan and then back to Isla Verde all in one night. Weekend nightlife runs from 7PM to 4 or5 AM. Also San Juan is not so age connscious so you will see partiers of all ages at most places.Honeymooners and older couples are only predominant at out of town venues.
