NEW YORK -- Milton Segarra, Puerto Rico Tourism Co.'s executive director, issued a status report at the recent ASTA congress on hotel projects taking place on the island. Highlights of the hotel projects under construction can be viewed in the accompanying chart above.

A new addition is the project now under way at Las Casitas at Wyndham El Conquistador Hotel and Casino in Fajardo. The complex is adding 70 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas to its current roster of 90 villas.
