How much Spanish should we learn??

Is English widely spoken/understood? We are trying to learn Spanish but are not sure how fluent we will be by the time we go on vacation.

Please advise!

The people are so friendly there, but speaking even the most basic spanish brings the most delightful smiles to their faces. My friends spoke none, and I am fluent, and yes, you could note a difference when we would switch to Spanish. But aren't you the same when speaking your native language as opposed to another? If you smile, gesture and at least can say buenos dias (tardes), mucho gusto, gracias, hola and hasta luego you will find MANY new friends on the island!
