What’s Happening? February 2019
February is prime tourist season here in Puerto Rico … the days are warm, the nights are cool, and it’s freezing up in the Great White North. From carnivals to coffee festivals to golf and marathons to food, drink and music events there are lots of things going on this time of year. While there is almost always something interesting happening somewhere in Puerto Rico, there are a few special events each month that deserve a mention.
