Mr Green

is there kosher food over there?

Mr Green

is there a Minyan in PR?


Is there minyan by the Chabad there?


Is there Hallal meat there?

Dr Moose

Is Zika still a thing?


Maybe add to the post that travelers will need a negative molecular COVID test taken within three days of their trip or will have to pay for one at the airport and face quarantine. There is also a curfew from 10 pm to 5 am through July 22nd.


pretty hard to get a negative test result from within 3 days if it now takes 5-7 days to get results


If you go before the 15th no COVID test is necessary. Travel will reopen to international travel on the 15th but is still open to US residence until then as well.

Esti A

Has PR even fully recovered yet from Hurricane Maria/Irma (2017)?


There were some Pesach programs planned there for this past Pesach (before getting cancelled for COVID), so I imagine they have rebuilt up the touristy areas


Worth to shlep all the way to San Juan when Miami/Key West is closer and more convenient?


Should I be more concerned about COVID or Zika?


Any idea how difficult the cancellation process will be if Chase or Amex points are used? Thank you!


Do you think these airfare prices will last? I’m waiting for my United Explorer card to come in the mail and dont want to have to pay for the luggage…


How many points does a silver member get on basic economy and how about bulk tickets
