It's usually hard to tell the exact moment when a tourist attraction comes into fashion, but not with Puerto Rico. It happened on the day the Caribe Hilton opened. The hotel filled up right away and it's been busy ever since. And no wonder. Situated on a beautiful 17-acre estate jutting out into the ocean, with the ancient Spanish quarter of San Juan to the West and the exciting modern city to the East, the Caribe Hilton offers an endless variety of delights...sporting, sumptuous and spectacular.
Step into an ocean of fun
The Caribe Hilton's sweeping, reef-protected beach of coral sand has everything you need for sailing, skin-diving, water-skiing and just plain basking. There's a private pier, too, where the fish are very cooperative. On shore, there are two huge swimming pools, championship tennis courts, bowling and shuffleboard. And golf is available at the Dorado Hilton Hotel and Country Club, a short drive away.
Step back four centuries
The Caribe Hilton has its own Spanish fortress right next door. And a short cab ride brings you to the four-hundred-year-old city of Old San Juan. Stroll narrow, twisting streets, paved with the blue ballast stone of the Spanish Galleons. Explore the huge fortress of El Morro that has a nine-hole golf course in its moat. Find treasures in the exciting shops and art galleries.
Step out to a Latin Beat
After dark at the Caribe Hilton you'll sip cocktails at the Caribar. Choose from the very finest in Caribbean, American or Continental cuisine in the superb Rotisserie Castillo, social center of San Juan night life. Dine and dance in the cosmopolitan Club Caribe, with top international stars to entertain you. Or sample Polynesian delicacies in Trader Vic's.
You'll sleep in a beautiful, air-conditioned room, with the sea murmuring at your balcony. Wake in the morning to a breathtaking ocean view. Rates from $17 a day single, $21 double thru Dec. 14. $25 single, $29 double, Dec. 15-Apr. 30.
Grab a jet. Or if you can't go now, grab a pen—write for color brochures and full details to Peter Griffith, Hilton Hotels International, Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York 22, N.Y.
