Puerto Rico on Condé Nast Traveler’s 19 Best Places to Go list
SAN JUAN – Puerto Rico is on the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s 19 Best Places to Go list in 2019. The selected destinations were vetted by editors from both Condé Nast Traveler U.S. and Traveller U.K.
“Puerto Rico has not only recovered: it has been reborn,” said the editors said of the luxury and lifestyle publication that has won 25 National Magazine Awards. “This year, Puerto Rico is the statement trip to take,” they added.
“We’re proud of this recognition and this remarkable endorsement from Condé Nast will certainly inspire people to visit Puerto Rico. The Island’s natural scenic beauty, vibrant music, rich culture, outstanding gastronomy and unrivaled beaches are just some of our key assets and we can’t wait to share them with the world,” said Brad Dean, CEO of Discover Puerto Rico, the destination marketing organization for the island.
Condé Nast Traveler also highlighted that “a ton of new Airbnbs have popped up: everything from beach bungalows in the surf town of Rincón to chic lofts in San Juan’s graffiti-covered Santurce.”
The renowned travel magazine also pointed out Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical “Hamilton,” which is heading to San Juan in January, with Miranda reprising the title role.
