We’re arranging a few excursions during the con to take advantage of the unique opportunities presented by our location.

Arecibo Observatory

There will be a tour of Arecibo Observatory with Brother Guy Consolmagno.

Due to very limited space, the Arecibo tour seats will be offered by lottery. The draw is on June 10, and you can enter to reserve one on this Google Form.

Casa Bacardi

A trip to Casa Bacardi, the home of Bacardi rum, is planned for Sunday afternoon, departing the hotel at 2pm and returning by 5pm. The cost is $25.00 for adults (18 to 65) and $22.00 for adults 60 or over. We’re limiting it to 30 people. The deadline for reservation was 6/30/17.

El Yunque

Puerto Rico is home to El Yunque, the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Park system. We aren’t attempting to organize a rain forest hike ourselves. Instead we’re recommending that if you’re interested in going on this adventure, contact Spoon Food Tours for their El Yunque Tour. Owing to the time involved, the tour is only given once a day, starting in the morning, but they do pick you up at your hotel.
