In Puerto Rico, everyone is called Boricua, a unique name that honors the island’s heritage, but not only that, it is also a spirit, a flavor, and a rhythm that you will feel in every part of the island. It is a state of mind and a way of life, embodied by proud and passionate people.
When you bask in the warmth of the island beaches, when you taste the love in their food, when you embrace the call of their adventures, you’ll find that spirit in yourself, too.
Puerto Rico is a place where the Old World is mashed up with the new on an Island that is small in size but offers an immense bounty of one-of-a-kind experiences.
Rich history and culture, exceptional food, pristine beaches, majestic mountains, relaxation, and adventure — all packed into one sun-kissed Caribbean paradise. Puerto Rico is full of people who are welcoming and Buena Gente (which is Boricua lingo for kind and friendly). Here, you’ll feel like you are family instead of just a visitor. Around every corner, you’ll find a celebration of life, a vibrant cultural experience, food for the soul, and a captivating rhythm.
Luckily now, with the new “Live the Boricua Experience packages“, launched by Discover Puerto Rico and Marriott International, you can discover Puerto Rico in style. These packages offer immersive rooms, featuring art and decor- a culinary offering deeply rooted in the Puerto Rican DNA- and private guided tours and adventures to highlight the island’s diversified spirit.
