SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - In honor of last year's legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide, The Condado Plaza Hilton in Puerto Rico has partnered with Andrew Collins,  the LGBT travel expert and author of About.com's Gay Travel site, GayTravel.About.com, to create a "Coloring San Juan with Love" first wedding anniversary package for same-sex couples. The package features a detailed itinerary, written by Collins, for the perfect weekend in San Juan, which is well known for its thriving LGBT scene.

"With its welcoming vibe, vibrant gay nightlife and stunning LGBT-frequented beaches, San Juan is one of the undisputed gay and lesbian travel hot spots in the Caribbean," said Collins. "For this guide, I've recommended where to go for some of the most popular LGBT spots in San Juan from going to Oasis Bar near the Condado beachfront early one evening and to downtown bars on Saturday night, plus some things to see and do in Old San Juan."

In addition to the city guide, couples who book the package will receive a five-course food tasting with wine pairing at Pikayo, the flagship restaurant of famed Puerto Rican Chef Wilo Benet; two complimentary welcome cocktails at Moon Bar, considered the perfect spot to see and be seen in the center of the hotel lobby, a surprise romantic turndown service with rose petals and daily breakfast.

The "Coloring San Juan with Love" package starts from US$275* per night, based on a three-night minimum stay. The package is available for travel from June 2016 through June 2017. Must be booked at least two weeks prior to arrival. For reservations, please visit www.condadoplaza.com/special-offers-en.html.
