Did this trip 2011, best vacation ever. Interesting, fun, experiences of a life time. Great people, well organized and safe for anyone traveling on their own.

Patti Ashton May 10, 2014 at 08:15 PM

I just signed up the the trip on Nov 9 along with my sister and another friend. Would anyone suggest staying an extra day or two before or after the trip. Also do the room accommodate three people?

ELizabeth Bauer Mar 31, 2014 at 11:45 PM

Anyone coming in on the 19th for the April 20th trip?
Joy Rennich Apr 01, 2014 at 01:46 PM

Hi Elizabeth, I will be flying in from Chicago about 2pm. Looking forward to meeting you. Joy
ELizabeth Bauer Apr 05, 2014 at 08:49 AM

Great, will be coming in at 8:30pm. See you at the Hampton!

Cathy B Mar 24, 2014 at 12:46 PM

We, Cathy and Ben, are recently retired and will be coming from the Eastern Shore of Maryland (via BWI). Trying to travel light ... bringing our snorkels and masks, but not fins.
Ronnie Edelman Mar 24, 2014 at 06:55 PM

I am also coming from the Eastern Shore - from Galena, near Chestertown. Where on the Eastern Shore are you from?
Roberta Brown Mar 29, 2014 at 10:37 AM

I'm travelling with Ronnie and am bringing hiking sticks, mask and fins, all of which fit in my carryon bag.
Cathy B Mar 29, 2014 at 12:21 PM

We're in Cambridge, flying USAir through Charlotte on Sunday morning. Hiking sticks sound like a good idea, don't have any (yet).
Patricia Ley Jun 25, 2014 at 05:29 PM

You won't need your own mask and fin, all is supplied. Loved the trip, did it in 2011. Highly recommended.

Paula Mansfield Mar 06, 2014 at 08:16 AM

I just returned from the February trip and it was fantastic! Have fun everyone.
Ronnie Edelman Mar 10, 2014 at 05:51 PM

Good to hear. Any advice on appropriate footwear to bring?

Joy Rennich Mar 05, 2014 at 03:22 PM

Anyone going on the April 20 trip? I will be leaving from Chicago.
ELizabeth Bauer Mar 31, 2014 at 11:40 PM

I am, and I am a single. I flying in on the 19th? From New Orleans

Ronnie Edelman Feb 13, 2014 at 12:12 PM

anyone out there going on the trip that starts on March 30?
Anne Carbone Feb 13, 2014 at 07:28 PM

My husband and I just signed up (it's so nice to think about warm weather activities while shovelling snow)
Virginia Brown Feb 27, 2014 at 03:35 PM

My friend, Bonnie, and I will be coming from WI--also delighted to escape cold!

James Hasselle Feb 06, 2014 at 12:58 PM

This latest cold wave with 12 inches of snow and below zero temperatures make activities in Puerto Rico even more exciting. I don't think though, here in Lawrence we have had nearly the same severity of weather and hardship as those of you and the Northeast. There at least is some beauty in the snow on the evergreens and contrasting landscapes.
