Why not spend this year's holiday season away from the busy and frigid locales typically associated with the season?Â How about a getaway where travelers can experience a white Christmas with beaches instead of snow?
Puerto Rico celebrates Christmas and New Year's like no other place on earth.Â The Island boasts the world's longest official holiday season, lasting from November through mid-January, so travelers have plenty of time to make arrangements. Â Plus, with no passport required for U.S. citizens and hundreds of direct flights from 21 U.S. cities, Puerto Rico is one of the most convenient Caribbean getaways.Â So this year, think about encouraging your readers to give themselves the gift of beautiful Puerto Rico, where the luxury, festivities and Island charm will make memories that last a lifetime.
Consider these three options:
- One of the Western Hemisphere's oldest military forts will turn into a concert hall for Grammy-nominated pianist and composer Yanni, who will perform two concerts at El Morro in Old San Juan on December 16 and 17.Â Yanni adds El Morro to a short list of monuments he has performed in front of, which also includes the Taj Mahal, the Forbidden City, and the Acropolis.
- Puerto Rico's spas are the right choice for individuals looking to rejuvenate their minds, bodies and souls after a busy year.Â From yoga on spectacular beachfronts to 24-karat gold oil massages, the Island's spas and their professional staffs provide the very best to start the New Year off right.
- One of the most vibrant arts and crafts fairs in the world, the annual Fiestas de la Calle San SebastiÃ¡n will take place January 12-15 on Calle San SebastiÃ¡n in Old San Juan.Â The festival will host roughly 300 artisans, artists and live music, transforming the city into a party mecca as mouthwatering food and rousing music emanate all day long.
