SANA + SUNTA 2019 Conference

UPDATES Regarding the SANA/SUNTA 2019 Spring Conference

The SANA/SUNTA Spring Conference is around the corner!

We will begin on Thursday, May 2 with a documentary screening of “Desalambrando” at 3:00 p.m. and the opening keynote by Yarimar Bonilla at 5:00 p.m. The conference will conclude on Saturday, May 4 by 8:00 p.m. Look for a complete schedule of events coming soon!

The conference was originally located at the Hilton Hotel Caribe, but repairs to that hotel after Hurricane Maria are taking longer than expected. We are thus moving the room block to the nearby Condado Plaza and holding the conference at the beautiful University of Puerto Rico and Contemporary Art Museum. Regular transportation between the hotel and conference venues will be provided free of charge.

If you have already reserved a room at the Hotel Caribe, it will be automatically transferred to the Hotel Condado Plaza. If you have not yet booked a room, we will be reaching out again soon with a direct booking link for you to secure your reservations in the new room block.  Please keep your eye out for this email containing the booking link, as there is a major convention happening in San Juan at the same time as our conference and sleeping rooms in other hotels nearby are filing up quickly.

If you have any questions, please contact us at

Hotel Information (Book before April 10):
Caribe Hilton Hotel
1 (One) San Geronimo Street, San Juan, PR 00901

Reserve your room by calling 1.800.445.8667 or use this special link to book online []The deadline for making room reservations at the special AAA rate of $199 is Wednesday, April 10. When making reservations by phone, please mention you are with the AAA or SUNTA/SANA Meeting. The block of rooms is limited, and rooms might sell out before the deadline. To ensure availability at the group rate, please make your reservations as soon as possible.

Why book within the block?

SUNTA and SANA have contracted a certain number of sleeping rooms and staying at the contracted hotel is highly encouraged. When you book outside of the block or make reservations elsewhere, SUNTA nor SANA gets credit for those rooms. When the minimum number of contracted rooms goes unsold, SUNTA, SANA, and AAA must pay penalty fees to the hotel. In addition, the inability to prove the actual number of occupied hotel rooms weakens our negotiating power for favorable rates in the future. Please support SUNTA, SANA, and AAA by reserving your sleeping room at the Caribe Hilton Hotel, the official hotel for the conference.
