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.
