We recommend you arrive on Wednesday, May 7th and no later than Thursday, May 8th with departure on Sunday, May 11th. We have a welcome reception planned on Thursday at 5pm and a group excursion to Old San Juan planned for all day Saturday. To really make a vacation out of this trip, plan on arriving even earlier!
American Airlines offers daily non-stop service from Chicago. It is a short 4 hour flight. We suggest you take the earliest flight possible to account for the time change (Atlantic Time Zone - 1 hour ahead of Chicago). This allows you to still have plenty of time to get to the Resort and then relax at the pool or beach.
For flights, booking directly through American Airlines usually offers the best rates. And when you are ready to book your accommodations, click here to book online as we have a special room rate for our guests! Also check for deals on Orbitz, Expedia, or the El Conquistador website that include flights and hotel, as you might find an even better package. When booking your accommodations, make sure you let the Resort know you are part of the Fisher/Kuchipudi wedding party or click here to book online.
Make sure you also call the Resort and arrange for airport pickup by the Resorts' Shuttle service ($33 one way). We definitely recommend this, as driving and navigating in Puerto Rico takes some experience. Also during the drive, they provide refreshments, and a welcome video about the resort, with the ability to pre-register en route.
