It's close, it's always balmy (with a year-round average of 85 degrees), and it's exploding with hotel development. Puerto Rico is a flexible, tropical destination for corporate events of any size.

About an hour from San Juan, the Wyndham El Conquistador Resort is a sprawling oceanside property with plenty of room for large groups to roam — more than 900 guest rooms are in five distinct “villages.” Fourteen restaurants, three swimming pool complexes, and the world-renowned Golden Door Spa are among the complex's many amenities.

The hotel's largest banquet hall seats 2,300, and there are 37 breakout rooms. Spanish Colonial architecture infuses this resort with a charm that's rare among very large properties.

Small incentive groups will love The Gallery Inn in Old San Juan. A quirky, living museum with 22 cozy guest rooms in a magnificent setting, the inn's magical ambience is enhanced by tropical gardens, trickling fountains, and exotic birds. An Old World art gallery is nestled inside this rambling, 300-year-old colonial home. The Gallery Inn boasts Old San Juan's highest viewpoint, and it is worth the climb up a narrow, uneven staircase to enjoy a sweeping, majestic sea view from the rooftop wine deck. Gourmet meals are prepared on request, and The Gallery Inn is within walking distance of the restaurants, forts, and attractions of Old San Juan.
