We encourage you to stay at The Puerto Rico Convention during the 1 ½ hour lunch break each day. The conference is planned to include several informative workshops that you will enjoy. The PRCC offers a number places to purchase a quick lunch along with many other dining options. You will also find comfortable places to relax, take in the beautiful scenery, and visit with fellow attendees and colleagues. Local musicians will play in the lobby during lunch most days.

Local Evening Dining

City restaurants serve excellent Spanish, French, American, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and Asian cuisines. It has been said that San Juan’s fine dining scene is the most varied and developed in the Caribbean. In fact, there has been a restaurant explosion in San Juan in the past few years, first in Old San Juan, and now more recently in Miramar, Condado, and surrounding areas. Isla Verde and Hato Rey also have a large number of restaurants. You will also find many traditional restaurants that have been established for more than 30 years. Most of these specialize in Spanish or Continental cuisine, with a Puerto Rican flair.

A list of restaurants will be available at your hotel. We also will have a list of favorites prepared by the local committee at the conference registration desk.
