“ScoutAbout” Debuts at Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza

New Program Promises Interactive Fun and Learning for the Entire Family

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – April 3, 2013 – Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza, the only luxury hotel in Puerto Rico overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Condado Lagoon, announces the launch of ScoutAbout - its new family program.

Initially launched in 2012, with several participating Hilton Worldwide hotels and resorts throughout Florida and Puerto Rico, ScoutAbout is a uniquely designed, scavenger-like tour, chock-full of fun-filled learning experiences.  As part of the program, parents and their children are invited to “scout about” on a self-guided nature and history tour in search of a variety of landmarks and local flora and fauna.

“We are delighted to present the ScoutAbout program at Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza,” said Raul Bustamante, managing director. We pride ourselves on offering truly unique, exceptional experiences for all guests, and ScoutAbout is a great program for families to spend quality time together while exploring and learning about the island of enchantment.”

Armed with a special ScoutAbout map customized for the property, the family-friendly scavenger hunt inspires guests to explore the hotel in search of a rainbow of colored wristbands at 10 Points of Discovery (POD) unique to the property and local region, such as the Dog Rock, the Ficus Tree, El Puente Dos Hermanos and more.  When each discovery point is found, kids locate a special sign post with information and history on that particular element, pick up the corresponding, color-coded wristband, and move on to the next location on the map.  Once all Points of Discovery are visited and a full set of wristbands gathered, guests can exchange their collection for a glow in the dark trophy band.  Kids cannot help but learn as they explore and investigate.

Families are also encouraged to share their findings and ScoutAbout experiences with fellow “scouts” via Facebook.  Once they “like” the hotel’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ConradCondadoPlaza, they can post their own ScoutAbout photos and share their experiences.  In the process, they become eligible to become the “Top Scout of the Week.”
