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. 

The largest tourism player in the Arctic, Off the Map, is using its platform to create an entirely new “Truly Green Aurora” experience, focused on combating climate change and creating a deeper connection between guests and the environment.

 

On Nov. 1, global hospitality group, Benchmark added Manor Vail Lodge to its Colorado portfolio. Established in 1965 and situated at the base of Vail Mountain’s Golden Peak, its location offers picturesque views, yet is within walking distance from the ski slopes, shops and restaurants, giving guests the perfect mix of fun and relaxation.

 

In January 2020 Thompson Hotels will open its latest property, Thompson Washington D.C. Located in the “The Yards” neighborhood, Thompson Washington D.C. will be the first lifestyle hotel to open its doors in the developing area. Close to the Capitol Riverfront and the Anacostia River and Nationals Park, the new property offers impeccable views paired with specialty shops and various local restaurants to suit the needs of many.
