Welcome to Distrito T-Mobile: Puerto Rico’s L.A. Live!

 

I loved the Distrito T-Mobile Gala Opening Celebration on August 14, 2021! 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!

What is Distrito T-Mobile?

“DISTRITO T-Mobile exists to revolutionize the way people connect and have fun in Puerto Rico by creating happy moments in a breathtaking place that showcases the best of our people and our culture. Puerto Rico now has a culture-centric space to get together and enjoy a happy, vibrant, and energetic time.

DISTRITO T-Mobile will integrate technology and the natural thrill of crafted experiences to create emotional connections with our guests, and to enhance, not supplant, the visitors’ experience.”

Who was the headliner at the opening party? Luis Fonsi

At the opening gala for Distrito T-Mobile, this video was shared about the history of building this complex over eight years with many challenges including Hurricane Maria and COVID 19. Celebrate the artisans, crafts people, musicians and engineers of Puerto Rico at Distrito T-Mobile!

Are you wondering where to celebrate?

Meet me at Arena Medalla to dance, drink, eat and enjoy with games and karaoke at Arena Medalla in Distrito T-Mobile. I loved dancing salsa with Daniel Perez–my LA dancing lessons must be working–because he said I dance like a Puerto Rican! Daniel (Conga) Diaz and Alex Lopez‘s music was THE BEST!

THIS VIDEO is the live music of Daniel (Conga) Diaz and Alex Lopez from the opening celebration. I loved watching them play and listening to their music.

The celebrations went on all night in many locations. I loved listening to Juan Vélez singing a late night concert in the Plaza at Distrito T-Mobile!

Thank you to Discover Puerto Rico, Distrito T-Mobile, T-mobile and Ketchum for inviting me to the grand opening party August 14, 2021. See all the videos from our adventures at this link: https://bit.ly/Distrito2021

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!
