INfluence 2017: Hotel and Travel

AACP Article

All programming will be held at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in Rio Mar, Puerto Rico, Feb. 25–28.

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa

Life's different on the northeast coast of Puerto Rico. With the perfect mix of laid-back beaches and tropical adventure, Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa is both steps away from a private stretch of sand along the Atlantic, and the closest resort in Puerto Rico to El Yunque Rainforest. The hotel is also just a short drive to the historic attractions of Old San Juan, the "Second City" of Ponce, kayaking Bio Bay, and numerous zip-lining options–one of the most popular things to do on the island. All meeting space will be hosted at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa.

About Puerto Rico

No U.S. Passport required! While Puerto Rico is a tropical island in the Caribbean, it is also a U.S. Commonwealth. That not only means you can travel overseas and not have to carry a passport if you’re a U.S. Citizen, it means your flight is considered domestic. The U.S. dollar is the island’s currency, so no need to exchange currency. ATMs are generally easy to find. Most businesses accept major credit cards, as well as traveler’s checks.
