Despite the horrible hand Puerto Rico has been dealt over the last few years, their local communities are staying hospitable and strong.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico’s resilience has been made clear, particularly through the island’s tourism and hospitality efforts. Puerto Rico has been welcoming visitors with open arms, so much so that the island has been named the #1 Caribbean Island on Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
Since the announcement, the island has seen a plethora of positive reactions from visitors and partners. Puerto Rico hopes such responses will continue to bring more and more visitors to the island, as their goal for the coming years is to double their visitor economy.
For those looking to perhaps visit Puerto Rico, locals want you to know that on the island, you will find the perfect balance of comfort and adventure. Traveling to the island comes with all of the cultural and historical benefits of traveling outside of the United States without any of the hassles (no passport required).
In February 2020, Puerto Rico will be opening El Distrito, a five-acre hospitality and entertainment plaza in San Juan that will have space for more than 6,000 people, eight movie theaters, a variety of restaurants, and a rum distillery.
