Review: Hey all,
I've been trying to get into paintball, but a few things have always set me back since I live in Puerto Rico.

A) The only close field that makes any sense to visit often is this one in the Ciudad Deportiva. This lack of variety can turn anyone off.

B) This field forces you to either buy their field paint (which I've found to be on the cheap side. NOT inexpensive, at $45 a box, but cheap.) or pay an extra $10 to bring your own. Thus, entry is NOT $15, it's minimum of $25.

C) I'm geared more towards Rec ball and scenario, as I've just finished gearing up my Tippmann A5 for this purpose. Their speedball field is great, but their jungle is really lacking. The last time I've gone there, they had trimmed the weeds, bushes, and most cover way too short, and the only two paths are through the middle (which is lacking in cover, as I said) or around the side (which isn't a bad way to go).

Their refs are better than most on the island (not perfect, but who is?), they don't have food or snacks, but do sell water and Powerade [$1 and $2 , respectively]. Don't plan on going after a good rain, as mud piles up like crazy and stinks, too.

Regardless, I'll probably be going tomorrow, but at about $50 for the whole day (due to paint costs) it's not the cheapest hobby. I know, there are more expensive parks, but I must admit I don't play as often as most and I haven't been to any fields in the United States (where I'm sure prices are probably steeper but offer better service).

I would recommend this field for nearly anyone but woodsball players, who could probably score better assembling a team and trekking to a remote forest somewhere nearby. Thus, it's scored rather low from me.
