Whether you plan on lounging by our infinity pool or splashing in the waves on our semi-private beach, packing your favorite bathing suit & pair of shades is a must! If you are looking to add to your collection, you can also check out our Wildside boutique and stock up on unique and exotic finds. While nothing beats that “just got back from vacation glow” - don’t forget the sunscreen.
Backpack/Tote: Something simple and practical that can hold your essentials for when you're visiting the charming city of Old San Juan. You'll want to bring something that can be easily carried while you're leisurely wandering the cobblestone streets, but that has enough space to fit a souvenir or two from the local shops. Plan for a bag with enough room to also carry your camera, because you won't want to miss out on any photo ops while you're admiring the city's colorful buildings, or exploring the well-preserved museums and historical sites.[caption id="attachment_6331" align="alignnone" width="700"]
