Governor’s resignation might prove to be a turning point for Puerto Rico tourism

 Saturday, July 27, 2019 


After the resignation of Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló following protests over corruption, the government’s handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, and leaked messages disparaging hurricane victims, the island’s tourism authorities are hopeful that it can rebound quickly.


Brad Dean, the CEO of Discover Puerto Rico, the U.S. Caribbean territory’s year-old destination marketing organization, said that the governor’s resignation “is a turning point for the island and its people.”


Dean said that the protests and turmoil “created a sense of uncertainty for travelers, planners, and investors,” and added that four cruise ships bypassed Old San Juan and that there were “limited interruptions to tourism.”


There are plenty of issues that come to the forefront after the governor’s resignation. How quickly can the island’s tourism recover? Will there really be a turning point? Time will say so!
