Dear Ms. Blue,

First, thank you for letting The Passionate Traveler plan your trip for a girls' getaway to celebrate your friend's birthday. I'm happy to share the results of my research with you. I think you will be very pleased with my recommendations. As a recap, you told me that you were looking for a girls' getaway with your friends to Puerto Rico that would expose you to the local culture which included the beach and dance scene. Based on your feedback, I was able to negotiate some amazing deals at three different resorts located in Puerto Rico. Note: There are not a lot of all-inclusive resorts located in Puerto Rico. The first recommendation is an all-inclusive located in the Rio Grande region (30 miles from San Juan) of Puerto Rico. The last two recommendations are not all-inclusive but they are centrally located in San Juan (easier access to restaurants and nightlife). The recommendations below includes round trip airfare and hotel fees.

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa (all-inclusive)

At Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, we believe in the restorative power of nature.

Ours is the only resort on the northeast coast, with over 1 mile stretch of golden beach access and 500 acres of on-site recreational fun, including Rio Mar Casino, 2 golf courses, miles of trails, and 5 eclectic restaurants and lounges. No hotel or resort is closer to El Yunque Rain Forest. As the only of its kind in the U.S. Forest System, the 28,000-acre National Park is rife with wildlife. For culture, the capital city of San Juan is less than 30 miles away. View the El Yunque Rainforest Map provided by the USDA Forest Service.

Please note that the quote does not include any optional excursions you and your friends would like to take during your stay. Upon your review and approval, I will send you the paperwork to reserve your Passionate Traveler vacation.

Trip Insurance

Since this is a significant investment, I do recommend trip insurance in case you have to cancel for a covered reason, your luggage is lost/delayed, or your trip is interrupted for any reason. The price of the trip insurance is based on the total cost of your portion of the trip. I can provide a list of vendors for you to purchase travel insurance.
