What’s Happening? May 2019

May is a the beginning of “summer” (defined as months without an “R” in their name) here on the island, and the beginning of “beach weather”. Schools let out for the summer in May, locals head to the beaches, and the action really picks up! Expect fun family activities, lots of plant sales (especially for Mother’s Day), food & drink fests, and dancing & music events.

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 May 2019.

Puerto Rico is the most beautiful island in the Caribbean , I can never understand when people choose to do a all inclusive vacation. I have been going to Puerto Rico since 1965 and met my wife there in 1967. There is so much to do on the island nd all the visitors have to do is rent a car and drive. . While in Puerto Rico remember the best part of your visit is the people of this great island!

Yes, we start from SJ because we assume that is where most tourist/people will be starting from. But we give GPS coordinates and Google maps to help people starting in other areas get to there.
