How much spending money to bring to puerto rico for 4 night...

My husband and I are staying for 4 nights in the Las Casitas village of Wyndham Conquistador. Breakfast is included in our rate so we would only need 2 meals a day. We are probably going to take a tour to the rainforests and a day trip to old san juan. How much do you suggest we bring?

That all depends on whether you eat at the hotel or not. Usually the rests. in the hotel are a bit pricey whereas if you eat outside of the hotel the rests that you find will be more moderately priced. Will you have a car?? if so this will allow you to travel to and from the hotel so you open your possibilities to eat good but not pay so much. The car will also allow you to go on your own to the rainforest unless you want a guided tour. Bottom line if you like to enjoy yourself on your vacation then you dont want to worry about whether you have enough cash on you and remember you can always use your credit card to pay for things. While you are at the El Con don't forget to do the biobay tour, you don't have to book it thru the hotel all you have to do is walk down to the Marina and you will find the pathway that leads you to Las Croabas Bay. There you will find the tour operators that can take you into the bio bay via kayak and choose from amongst them, this will save you a lot of money.

Have fun

I agree with borcua35, the bio bay experience is absolutely the best! It is a non-strenuous night time kayak paddle through a mangrove forest and into the bay. You have a guide and go in very small groups. About half of our group were first-time kayakers. It is amazing and a true can't-miss-this experience!!

Take only pocket money. El Conquistador has two ATM machines...one in the casino and one next to the front-desk; so cash will be readily available when you need it. Also, 99.9% of the restaurants in and around the hotel (as well in Old San Juan and the little eateries near the rainforest) accept major credit cards and debit cards.

You might not want to eat at the hotel. The food is horrendous and overpriced. Breakfast is $22.00 per person and the rest of the meals at the hotel are on the most part, with the exception of blossoms, cheap, low quality at fine dinining prices. Aside from the beautiful location, hotel rooms are completely ran down and plain cheap. Security is an issue at this hotel, we had our room broken into in the middle of the night(3:00 in the morning). After approaching hotel security on several occassions during our stay, nobody was able to tell us how the swipe card security code on the door locks were broken into. The security issues were reafirmed to us during our check out when pieces of our luggage were missing. Would recommend hotel to best enemy!!!
