Discover Puerto Rico launches virtual escapes to the Island

Discover Puerto Rico invites you to dance salsa, make cocktails and cook authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, from March 27-29, to extend the spirit of Puerto Rico’s culture, into your home.

Discover Puerto Rico, the Island’s Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), wants to extend the uplifting spirit of Puerto Rico’s rich culture by inviting people everywhere to escape to Puerto Rico this weekend, virtually. Day dreamers everywhere are invited to meet some of Puerto Rico’s best local talent and immerse themselves in the Island’s rich offerings by joining a salsa lesson with Tito Ortos and his partner Tamara Livolsi, choreographers to the stars including El Gran Combo, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and Víctor Manuelle on Friday, March 27, a cocktail making class with Roberto Berdecia, bartender and co-founder of the famous La Factoría on Saturday, March 28, and a cooking demo with Puerto Rican chef, Wilo Benet from Wilo Eatery & Bar on Sunday, March 29. 

“We take great responsibility in helping stop the spread of COVID-19, so we’re not encouraging travelers to visit us right now as everyone needs to stay safe in their homes. Instead, we want to extend an important part of our culture – our salsa music and dancing, our mixology and our delicious cuisine – to uplift people during these challenging times. We encourage travelers to daydream about our Island now and consider a visit later, when the time is right. In the meantime, we’re excited to join them in their living rooms for this virtual getaway,” said Brad Dean, CEO of Discover Puerto Rico.
