Airbnbs

We have reserved blocks of rooms at discounted rates at the hotels listed above, but we realize that some of our conference attendees might need more flexible accommodations. If you cannot stay at the hotels near the Puerto Rico Convention Center, San Juan also has plenty of options for Airbnbs. Many Airbnbs in the city are on a sharing basis, and typically house 3–5 people, with single or double occupancy. Rates are variable, but typically in the range of $100–$180 per day, with other costlier options, as well. Houses come equipped with kitchens and other amenities. Many of them also offer free cancellation options, some until June 20th. Following are the recommendations for neighborhoods close to the Convention Center:

  • Miramar (walking distance)
  • Condado (walking distance; a bit further and requires crossing a big intersection)
  • Viejo San Juan (short Uber ride to Convention Center)
  • Hato Rey (short Uber ride to Convention Center)
  • Santurce (short Uber ride to Convention Center)
  • Avoid Airbnbs in Tras Talleres and Campo Alegre
