Hi Connie, Hopefully I will be at the hotel by 3:30 if all flights go well. Looking forward to meeting you in San Juan


Karen Fullerton Apr 09, 2015 at 07:17 PM

I am arriving in San Juan @ 1:00pm Sun 4/12/15. Does anyone want to share a cab to the hotel?
Connie Ostis Apr 11, 2015 at 09:00 AM

Hi Karen, I am not arriving until 3:30, so you'll probably be long gone by then. If not, we could share. Anyone else want to share a cab around 3:30?

I loved this trip. It was my first with Road Scholar. All activities are very well paced. Only walk that I found a bit taxing because of the dryness and heat was at the dry forest. I found salt flats fascinating and the rain forest. Kayaking was nicely paced even for beginners. Overall I loved this trip. Great for single women to travel. Met some great people, didn't feel alone. Guides at each activity were friendly and very knowledgeable. Go for it and enjoy.

I am considering taking this trip later in the year, and am wondering how it was for those of you who just went. A couple of the daily itineraries seem a little exhausting to me ... several hours of kayaking in the a.m. (I've only kayaked two times before) then a 3+ mile hike in the afternoon. How did this work for you? I'm in pretty good shape but a full day of that level of activity tires me out just thinking about it!
Patti Ashton Apr 05, 2015 at 10:43 PM

I loved it. The kayaking was easy. He stopped a lot to talk. Some of the hikes were hard because it was so hot the week I went.
Marjorie Goldman Apr 06, 2015 at 11:08 AM

The trip was great. Don't worry about the kayaking. It's not as long as it sounds. We ended up paddling about 20 minutes to a beach, then got out for a walk and talk with a naturalist, then about 20 minutes back. Also, they are all two-person kayaks, so someone else can help with the rowing.

Hi Diane, Our group was split in 2 on the kayak day. You either kayaked or snorkeled in the a,m. had lunch then snorkeled or kayaked in the afternoon. The group did well. The activity that some had trouble with the hike in the dry forest. It was hot and the trail was mostly uphill. But after the hike we went to a local beach to cool off. Make sure to participate in the bioluminescent bay swim. Those who did not regretted it. Most of the people were placed in tandem kayaks. We had some ladies around 80 yrs of age who went in single kayaks and did fine. Have fun
Patricia Ley Apr 09, 2015 at 02:59 PM

totally agree


Marjorie Goldman Mar 27, 2015 at 12:06 PM

Solo traveler arriving in San Juan this Sunday, 3/29, at 1:30 p.m. Would anyone like to share a cab?
Bonnie Mentzer Mar 28, 2015 at 09:33 AM

Hi Marjorie, I am also a solo traveler arriving at 1:30 from Philadelphia, Pa. I will be happy to share a cab ride with you.
Marjorie Goldman Mar 28, 2015 at 11:06 AM

Bonnie! Where do you live? I am also flying out of Philadelphia!
Bonnie Mentzer Mar 28, 2015 at 01:17 PM

Hi Marjorie, I live in rural Lancaster County. Perhaps we will meet in the boarding area. I will have the program brochure in my lap.
Marjorie Goldman Mar 28, 2015 at 06:48 PM

Okay--I'll keep an eye out for you. I will probably be the one reading the New York Times.


Christina Dean Mar 06, 2015 at 01:48 PM

I am enrolled in the April 12th program and will arrive in P.R. at 9:30 am and would like to share a taxi with anyone arriving early.


Karen Fullerton Jan 27, 2015 at 03:33 PM

Just enrolled in this program. Would welcome any feed back from previous tourist. :)
