Puerto Rico tourism is slowly booming after Hurricane period

Puerto Rico tourismThe tourism in hurricane affected area Puerto Rico is now slowing increasing in tourist numbers.



The tourism officials in Puerto Rico are getting the calls from people in the travel industry or ordinary travelers wanting to know if tourism has recovered from the hurricanes that devastated the Caribbean island in September.



Like the song, the answer is slowly — widespread but gradual recovery from one of the most destructive and deadly storms in Puerto Rico history.



After Hurricane Irma on September 6 and Hurricane Maria on September 20 — the latter passing directly over the island — close to 100% of Puerto Rico was without power or water, the airport was closed and cruise terminals were devoid of ships.



But six months later, tourism is well on the road to recovery in many areas.



San Juan Port started welcoming leisure cruises just two weeks after Hurricane María and areas around the island like Culebra, Ponce, Mayagüez, Cabo Rojo, Rincón, Vieques are also back in business.



The best way to support Puerto Rico is to continue visiting, staying at our hotels, eating at our restaurants, enjoying our activities and shopping.
