Golfing in Puerto Rico

Forsaken for 500 years, Puerto Rico Finally Fulfills Its Promise as a Golfer's Eden
Jeff Williams
From the Print Edition:
Sylvester Stallone, Mar/Apr 98

(continued from page 4)

Arriving at the El San Juan, it's time for a final dip in the pool or ocean before preparing for dinner, perhaps at the hotel's striking new restaurant, Aquarela, the creation of Douglas Rodriguez, one of Puerto Rico's outstanding chefs, and his partner, Thomas Nally. You must--simply must--have the seviche as either appetizer or main course, and for dessert have Rodriguez's famous chocolate cigar.

At the Cigar Bar after dinner, either smoke your own from home or one you purchased at the Smoker's Suite, one of the upscale shops that form the hotel's shopping arcade. The Cigar Bar is the vision of the hotel's president, David Kurland, a cigar smoker and occasional golfer.

After dinner and a cigar, the hotel's casino, the largest and most elegant in the Caribbean, beckons only a few steps from the Cigar Bar. If it is a weekend night during the season, the sizzle will leave an indelible impression on your psyche and provide an exhilarating end to a Puerto Rican golf day.--JW
