Gateway to New Beginnings
For centuries, Puerto Rico, gateway to riches, has been the crossroads of the New World. As the easternmost point of the United States, it is also a land of new beginnings and of togetherness — perfect symbols of a wedding. We were lucky enough to journey to this breathtaking archipelago, perfect for your destination wedding.
Less than an hour away from the city, near the breathtaking El Junque Rain Forest, you will find many of the roads leading to El Conquistador Resort, a Waldorf-Astoria Resort, an exclusive premier destination in Puerto Rico.
The person who welcomes you with an open smile and friendly conversation could be Dermot Connolly, Managing Director. He knows the vast resort like the back of his hand, ensuring that you and your guests are able to maximize the resort experience.
“We try to accommodate every request no matter how big or small,” says Lydia Feliciano, Director of Marketing and Communications. “The one piece of advice I give to our guests is to be sure to spend enough time here so that you can explore all of the many activities at El Conquistador."
And there is a lot to choose from, including golf, swimming, a water park, hiking and exploring. During the day, guests can be found at the Palomino Island, the resort’s private island. Snorkeling, paddle boarding, and even jet skis are available to enjoy the best that Puerto Rico has to offer.
Returning to the resort, you can indulge in fine dining, rum tasting, or a romantic cocktail reception from a balcony overlook.
Beachside luau? No problem. Specialty catering for 1,000 guests? No problem. Your own secluded cottage with butler service? No problem. And they can accommodate the largest guest list you can think of — the sky is the limit.
"We love Indian Weddings. We enjoy everything about them: the energy, the people, the food,” says Yajaira Hernandez, Catering Manager at El Conquistador Resort. “We work hard to ensure that every family and every guest is well taken care of."
Puerto Rico is love at first sight. Once you’ve been there, you will not be able to get enough.
