The Paradores of Puerto Rico Present Good Value in Charming Settings Throughout the Island

Family-Owned Country Inns Give Visitors Freedom to Explore Beyond the Shore

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ — Exploring Puerto Rico is as easy as renting a car and driving along a highway or coastline road and taking in the diverse topography, attractions and activities. There is no better way to complete this experience than by staying in one of the island’s many Paradores. From the lush green of the central mountains, to scuba and snorkeling off the southern coast or the clear blue surfing waters of Isabela, these small lodgings offer locations that fulfill the interests of a wide variety of travelers. Through April 2006, selected Paradores throughout the island are offering guests a special 3-day, 2-night rate of $299 (two adults per room). These Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC)-endorsed family inns are a great idea for an affordable and unique tropical vacation.

“We encourage travelers to choose our Paradores for their next vacation, and truly experience our culture and history in a very personal way. Each Parador has something different to offer in its style and history, yet they all share the same mission of family ownership and pride in personalized service to guests,” said Terestella Gonzalez Denton, Executive Director of PRTC.

This great offer includes room, tax, American breakfast, dinner, gratuity and chaise lounges for beachside relaxation. Additionally, a partnership with Hertz allows for a 25% discount on a compact rental car. This offer is good through April 2, 2006. Additional adults pay $60 per night. Kids under 12 years old pay $32 each per night and children under three stay free with an adult. The rate for each additional night beyond the 2-night package for two adults is $149.50. Reservations are required, and certain restrictions apply. For more information on this promotion and on the Paradores of Puerto Rico, visit or call 800-981-7575.
