What’s Happening? October 2018

October is generally a slow month here in Puerto Rico. We’re at the lowest point of our “low season” for tourists, and many businesses that depend on tourism cut back their hours either to take their own vacations, or to do their “annual maintenance” that they can’t get accomplished during the busy times of year. There are still plenty of things to do this month, including Halloween hauntings and Octoberfest fun. But maybe the best thing of all is to enjoy some quiet time on one of our many beautiful beaches.

While there is always something fun happening somewhere in Puerto Rico, there are a few special events each month that deserve a mention. Here are some highlights for October 2018.

October 3 to November 3: Oktoberfest at Vivo

Beer-related specials and live music. Check their calendar for dates — usually Thursday through Sunday, but some Wednesday activities, too. More info on their Facebook page.

October 4 to November 5: House of Phobia

This annual Halloween haunted house attraction will be at The Outlet 66 in Canovanas, with 20,000 square feet of horror and scares! Open Thursday from 5pm, Fridays from 3pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm until 9pm. More info on their Facebook page.

Great work! It's about time people will see all the great things Borinquen has to offer. I have traveled more than half the world and truly Puerto Rico is one of the most beautiful places. I lived there for 21 years and three of my children were born in Puerto Rico. We visit the island every year! What is needed now is to offer tours staying at some of the Paradores so the beauty and culture can be absorbed. You are doing a great service to a great place! Thank you!
