First International Boogie Help Can't Post

So I am planning on attending the Puerto Rico Freefall Festival in February and this will be the first time I am traveling out of the country to attend a skydiving event (I'm from NY btw). I was wondering if anyone had tips or things to keep in mind when traveling. Some things I'm curious about include but are not limited to:

How to best transport my rig

Economical ways to travel/plan this trip

Where should I stay?

How much money should I bring?

Anything else you could offer would definitely help!

Thanks in advance!

The boogie organizers should be able to help you with those questions.

How to best transport my rig
-Safely

Economical ways to travel/plan this trip
-itravel2000.com?

Where should I stay?
-In a tent? Hotel? Actually, bed and breakfasts are great too!

How much money should I bring?
-Lots

Anything else you could offer would definitely help!
-Bring condoms, and beer. Also, bring more beer for your first international boogie.

That should about cover it! Sorry, I'm just being an ass, have a great trip!

It's as international as it gets for me... I don't get to leave NY very often so I'm treating it as that kind of trip.

How to best transport my rig

search for travel with gear and read up on the pro's and con's of the different ways of taking your rig. I prefer carry on in a bag. but make your own choice on that.



Economical ways to travel/plan this trip

friends. split the rental car and the lodging between lots of people


Where should I stay?

rent a beach house with friends. it's a blast and doesnt end up costing much if you pack it with people.

How much money should I bring?

lots.

Anything else you could offer would definitely help!

go explore the island. do non-jumping stuff. talk to the locals. hang out on the beach. the best parts of these kind of boogies imho are the non-skydiving parts. The jumping really isnt that much different. but the location is.

Thanks in advance!

Does that mean you treat going to Europe like space travel ?
