What’s Happening? June 2017

The month of June … It’s officially “summer” here on the island, beaches are in full swing, and El Yunque is starting to get more crowded. June is also the beginning of “hurricane season” … so keep an eye on our Weather Page where we’ll post any information that you might need to know about active storms.

While there is almost always something interesting happening somewhere in Puerto Rico, there are a few special events each month that deserve a mention. Here are some highlights for June 2017.

June Events

June 1 to 10: Puerto Rico Restaurant Week

The event will be held simultaneously at participating restaurants throughout the Island. Restaurants will offer prix-fixe (fixed price) dinner menus (includes appetizer/main course/dessert). Some restaurants will also offer special fixed price lunch menus or drink specials. Check the restaurant page on the Puerto Rico Restaurant Week web site to see some of the restaurants that will be participating. No tickets or coupons are needed to participate. Simply choose a restaurant and make a reservation.

Pride Festivals

Always a big party! The annual Pride Boquerón 2017 Festival will be held in Boquerón from June 8 to 11 (info on Facebook), while the annual Puerto Rican LGBTTIQ Pride March will be held in Condado San Juan on June 25 (info on Facebook).

June Events

June 23: Noche de San Juan

This annual nighttime event celebrates Saint John the Baptist (San Juan Bautista), the patron saint of the island of Puerto Rico. Head to a beach at midnight between June 23 and June 24, and fall backwards into the water three (or seven or tweleve) times. Check this other article on Noche de San Juan for more details.

June Events

June 29 to July 2: Carnival in Río Grande

The town of Río Grande is the “city of El Yunque”, and each year they celebrate the Carnaval Ciudad de El Yunque — a 4-day festival with food, music, parades, carnival rides, and fireworks. Check this other article on Carnival in Río Grande for more details.

June 30 to July 9: Aibonito Flower Festival

This is the biggest annual flower and plant festival on the island. There are plant sales, exhibitions, music, entertainment, and food. Stop by for a couple hours, or bring a folding chair and spend the whole day. Expect crowds on the weekends. Check this other article about the Aibonito Flower Festival for more details.

Other Events

This is just a small subset of activities occurring this month. As always, be sure to check our events calendar, Facebook page, or Twitter feed for other events happening this month and throughout the year all across the island.

Safe? Yes, I assume everything will be fine. Tourists should not see any difference except for the higher sales tax.

I'm staying in Mayaguez for several weeks. Anything to do on the western side if the island? Been to Ariceibo and Camuy caverns.

We don't "send out" information regarding events. Best thing is to look at our Event Calendar (http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/calendar-of-events/) and our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/PuertoRicoDayTrips).
