Anyone else making the trip to the Island of Enchantment to see the Twins wreck shop on the Cleveland baseball team?

 

History, beaches, mofongo, rum!  

 

I have yet to purchase tickets to the game but I don't think it should be an issue.Has anyone been to the stadium before?

Also would like to hear the pulse of the locals; although that may have to go to the Sports Bar. :)

I would love to but I don't have the funds for that.:) It would be an amazing experience though! I agree with the others, a full report would be a fun read.

Given the popularity of baseball in PR, I don't think I'd hold off on getting tickets.

Hey I'll be there, flying over from the DR for both games. Gonna meet my Dad who's coming from MPLS. Got your tickets yet? I know he got ours about a month ago on the official website and said there wern't too many left. I know that there were also some on stubhub but they were crazy expensive. I don't know about Puerto Rico but here in the DR there is a thriving second hand market but for a game like this I can't imagine they will come cheap. Not sure what we're planning on doing besides baseball but we should meet up before one of the games and grab a beer or something.

I bought the last ticket remaining for the Tuesday game (though now there is a standing room only option available).I'm tempted to go to the Wednesday game as well, but I want to explore more of the city and eat some delicious seafood.

 

Where do you plan on grabbing a beer before the game?Taberna Boricua is a beer/cocktail joint that is fairly close to the stadium.Where are you guys staying?I'll be in Santurce.

Not sure where we're staying exactly, I know it's close (less than a mile) from the stadium. We'd defiantly be down to meet at the Taberna, I'll PM u with my phone/whatsapp. I'm getting pretty excited now, not as much as everyone who's still in the Minnesota winter I'm sure...

I've been to PR before, and did get to experience the Bioluminescent Bay in Vieques.That and El Yunque are incredible (though the storm really wrecked havoc on the latter)

 

I'm just gonna stick with San Juan this trip.I've yet to experience Ponce and the west coast, but that just means I'll have to come back.

I was disappointed with San Juan, during the week it's pretty much dead, apparently all the action is on the weekends. There's also a lot of touisty crap because of the cruise lines
