I was in Puerto Rico to take the CIS exam with my good friend, Lisa Neylon. We both passed and are now Certified Incentive Specialists! While there, we took the opportunity to visit the fabulous Condado Vanderbilt Hotel and to enjoy all that the island of Puerto Rico has to offer, including a helicopter ride over the island, a Lunch and Tour at Bacardi and some great shopping in Old San Juan.
