Your Guide To The Perfect Couples’ Day at Dorado Beach and Beyond
We can’t think of a better way to starting and ending your day on the Island of Enchantment than on the sands of Dorado Beach Resort & Club. Here’s our couples’ guide to spending the day in Puerto Rico, starting and ending with us.
Starting Your Day at Panela, Cocina Social
With views of our famous East Course, Panela is the perfect place to start your morning by getting fueled up for a busy day of exploring. Try our delightfully thick sliced brioche French Toast with a dollop of Nutella, or maybe our filling Steak & Eggs featuring a seared tenderloin grilled to perfection.
The Wonders of Camuy River Cave Park
Begin your exploration of Puerto Rico by going underground. Known for its soaring interiors, million-year-old stalactites and stalagmites, and namesake underground river, beautiful Rio Camuy Cave Park attracts nature lovers and casual visitors alike.
The Colors of Old San Juan
Next, take to the streets of Old San Juan, which can be summed up in a single word: colorful. Calle San Justo perfectly defines this, where beautiful historic buildings in every color of the rainbow line the street, and at the end is a beautiful vista overlooking the sea.
Eat Like A Local
When it comes to having lunch, you can find everything in San Juan, from trendy beachfront dining to steaming-hot, deep-fried arepas served on paper plates at food shacks. You should also check out the “fondas"--what the locals call the hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pop style restaurants--serving up hearty, traditional Puerto Rican recipes.
After a day of exploring, return back to Dorado Beach for a bit of R&R…
Unwind at Spa Botánico
Spa Botánico at Dorado Beach is the perfect place to relax after sight-seeing. A five-acre sanctuary set within a fragrant pineapple garden with lush natural landscaping, this Ritz-Carlton spa was recently awarded the coveted 5-star rating from Forbes Travel Guide. Spa Botánico honors Puerto Rico’s genuine botanical and healing traditions that embrace the aesthetic, cosmetic and medicinal importance of local plants. The spa offers a variety of packages, from manicures and pedicures to facials, open-air treehouse massages, and exclusive Spa Botánico Rituals.
Finest of Dining at Melao
There are many unforgettable ways to end the day at Dorado Beach--dining at Melao by Mario Pagán is one of them. As with Panela, Melao offers uninterrupted views of the East Golf Course and mountains beyond but features a completely unique culinary style that's inspired by Puerto Rico’s rich history. While you're there, travel back in time with one of our most popular handcrafted drinks: Clara's 1900. Reminisce in a smoky combination of cinnamon, maple and templeton rye whiskey.
With so much more to discover on the Island of Enchantment, a few days simply is not enough. So discover the Dorado Beach Accommodations and live everyday Golden.
