Traveling with 17yr old son...

We are planning on going to PR with our 17yr old son...though we love to spend family time together...that's a must...most of the vacations we plan have events and activities for teenagers...BUT he will be 17...not the same as a 15yr old boy.

With that being said...what's a good hotel/resort to stay with him?

And would they allow him to go in the clubs with/without us?

Any ideas or suggestions???

listens to all music, and of course social media...typical teenage boy...

No. The minimum age for clubs is 21.

He can probably rent a jet ski if he enjoys water sports.

Hi NYC, I suggest the El San Juan. Great pool and beach, water sports video game arcade, several very good onsite restaurants. The lobby is alive with nightlife that will be interesting to your son, plus the onsite club Brava is geared to younger people and altho your son is too young to enter on his own, you will certainly be able to go in together as hotel guests.

Remember to bring slacks and a nice buttoned shirt for your son. Jeans are not what we Puertorricans would consider as a club outfit. :)
