Holidays in Puerto Rico

They say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year; Puerto Rico can attest to that. With the longest holiday season in the world – from late November to mid-January, the Christmas spirit fills the Island with joy, laughter, food, and music, which is why locals say that in Puerto Rico es Navidad todo el año (Christmas is all year long). So, we want you to get in that Boricua state of mind and discover an Island brimming with traditions as bright as their people.

Leave the layers and layers of clothes at home and trade the boots for sandals! Winter blues come in ocean waves, and there is no such thing as windchill, only cool sea breeze or fresh mountain air. In Puerto Rico, the snowmen are made of sand, the traditional cuatro and panderos accompany Christmas carolsand coquito will leave you saying, “eggnog who?”.

Get ready to join the jolgorio (party) as you discover what makes a true Navidad Boricua, with parrandas, yesteryear’s recipes, fun-filled iconic festivals, festive music, and pure tropical bliss. So keep scrolling and start planning the perfect Holiday getaway!
