Viva Puerto Rico: Niver’s News: Aug 2021

 

Aug News 2021 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Thank you to Discover Puerto Rico, Distrito T-Mobile, T-Mobile and Ketchum for inviting me to the grand opening party in San Juan Puerto Rico on August 14, 2021. See all the videos from our adventures here.

Are you looking for a sun-kissed Caribbean paradise with hundreds of years of history, fantastic food, beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, marvelous music and non-stop fun, La Isla del Encanto is the place for you.

I have visited Puerto Rico many times and sailed out of old San Juan for an entire Caribbean season when I worked for Royal Caribbean International.

Puerto Rico has one of the highest vaccination rates in the Americas, uses the US dollar and is a direct domestic flight from many parts of the USA.

You can walk from the 500 year-old UNESCO forts of Castillo de San Cristóbal and Castillo de San Cristóbal in old San Juan to the newest entertainment hub which is Puerto Rico’s L.A. Live called Distrito T-Mobile. See you in Puerto Rico!

Did you know that Puerto Rico is a domestic flight away from Los Angeles, you can use your same phone plan, US dollars and, of course, there is no passport required! See you in San Juan!

I love the Hollywood Bowl and went to The Princess Bride in concert. I was so happy that the Bowl was open. It is truly a treasure of Los Angeles to be able to enjoy world class music in this outdoor amphitheater with friends.

The Hollywood Museum reopened this month. The first ever Back to the Future Trilogy exhibit is waiting for YOU!
