In 2018, the Paradores of Puerto Rico Program celebrated its 45th anniversary of families taking care of travelers. To commemorate, here are four things you should know about these award-winning facilities:
- Every parador must be owned and managed by a Puerto Rican family and guarantee an authentic cultural experience outside the metropolitan region that highlights history, gastronomy, and music.
- These small hotels must have more than seven and less than 75 rooms to be considered a parador.
- Paradores are bigger than a Bed & Breakfast and smaller than a hotel. There are around 13 paradores in Puerto Rico.
- Many of the facilities have been recognized with excellence awards and certificates by SME, Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association for Hotel Owners, and TripAdvisor
