What’s Happening? June 2023
The month of June … It’s officially “summer” here on the island, beaches are in full swing, and tourist spots are getting 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 2023.
