Lodging

We will be staying at Caribe Hilton San Juan, in San Jaun Puerto Rico. Our hotel has a spa tub, internet access, business center, work out room, and even more. We will all pack tank tops, swimsuits, sunscreen, flip flops, shirts, shorts, towels, goggles, sunglasses, head bands, hair ties, etc.. We will have to pack a lot.

On our way to Puerto Rico, we will be spending $5,429, all together. For lodging we will be spending around $536. That is for a 2 bed bedroom, a balcony, and an ocean view. We will each bring 500 dollars of spending money. That $500 all of us will cover our food, shopping, entertainment. We will rent a rental car to get around the island. Renting the car will cost $170.24. Plus we will have to pay for gas which will cost about $1.74 a gallon. We will split the cost of the gas.

Activities

My cousin, Taylor, my grandma, my mom, and me love shopping. San Jaun has one of the biggest malls in the world, so we will be taking a day to go shopping. We will also take surfing classes, because Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, is one of the best places to surf. We will probably go scubadiving because they have some of the clearest waters in the world, and I think it would be so amazing to see the world in a different point of view. There is a lot of other things that we will do in Puerto Rico, but these are my favorites.
