logistics1The meeting will be held at the Condado Plaza Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The hotel is located near Old San Juan and is a short (~15 min) taxi ride from the airport.

CDC Health Advisory for travel to Puerto Rico – Zika virus


If you are attending the optional 2-day field trip, and plan to stay at the Condado until Monday Feb 1st, you can leave a bag there free of charge.  We encourage you to do this to maximize the space available on the field trip buses.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Condado Plaza Hilton from 1/24 to 2/03/15 at the rate of $189+tax/night for a double room.  This group rate is good until 12/28/15 Remember to mention KWI when you book your room for the event – go to http://www.condadoplaza.com/default-en.html to make your reservation.  The Condado Plaza Hilton will honor conference rates for 3 days before and after the conference, if you want some extra sunshine. We suggest that you make your hotel reservations as soon as you know your travel plans.  January is high season in Puerto Rico and so there are not an unlimited number of rooms available!

logistics2The hotel is located on the western end of Condado, between the Laguna del Condado and the Atlantic Ocean.

  • The hotel charges taxes (11%) and resort fees (18%) – this is typical for a San Juan hotel.

A  small public beach (Playita del Condado) adjacent to the hotel is known for snorkeling, quiet water, and access to the Condado Lagoon.


Your registration will include the opening reception, coffee/tea breaks during the meeting, and the final night banquet.  It also includes a mid-meeting field trip to learn about community involvement with the San Juan Bay Estuary Program.

If you bring your family, there’s plenty to do.  If you need child support, please be sure to provide that information on the registration form and we’ll be in touch.
