From Old San Juan to El Yunque, plan an offsite that’s off the charts.
Fun is a big part of Puerto Rico’s culture, and it should be a part of your meeting, too. Whether it’s a team-building exercise, an outing to dazzle important clients, or a volunteer day to give back something positive for the community, there is so much for groups to do while visiting the island.
Outside every boardroom window, a beautiful slice of paradise awaits. Charter a catamaran to an uninhabited islet or cay for a team outing that will redefine blue-sky thinking. For an awe-inspiring, only-in-Puerto Rico experience, organize a group kayak tour of one of the island’s three bioluminescent bays. Head inland for an eco-tour of El Yunque, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. Or, get your group’s adrenaline pumping at Toro Verde Adventure Park, which boasts one of the world’s longest ziplines and has its own dedicated Team-Building Center.
For inspired cuisine, nightlife, and culture, set your sights on San Juan. Meeting attendees can embark on a walking tour of the old town’s 500-year-old streets, take a group cooking class from a renowned chef, visit vibrant museums and art galleries, or sip piña coladas at the bar where they were invented. To really stir things up, arrange a group distillery tour and mixology class at Casa Bacardí, which doubles as an event venue.
Beyond city limits lies a side of Puerto Rico that is nothing less than enchanting. Host a retreat at a colonial horse ranch in the rainforest, or embark on a chinchorreo — a gastronomical road trip to sample restaurants and bars in small towns. Discover Puerto Rico can help you plan a chinchorreo route that will have your delegates dancing to the jukebox and sipping Medalla (a popular local beer) just like real boricuas.
If corporate social responsibility is a priority for your organization, there are many ways your group can give back while getting closer to our local communities. From coastal cleanup to native tree plantings to house builds in hurricane-damaged areas, Discover Puerto Rico can help you find DMCs that specialize in sustainable travel and voluntourism around the island.
