Puerto Rico | Caribbean

Puerto Rico - The Island of EnchantmentPuerto Rico is fondly referred to "The Island of Enchantment" and rightfully so as it is not only home to magnificent beaches, but to tropical rainforests, magnificent mountains, and romantic botanical gardens. Blending Latin, European and American culture, with beautiful architecture, exquisite plazas and churches, "The Island" is steeped in Spanish traditions, rich in its festive embrace of life. With outdoor fun, great hotels and restaurants, fascinating history, first rate transportation and a welcoming population, Puerto Rico has it all, and them some! Puerto Rico is blessed with a balmy, beautiful climate year round.

San Juan is famous for its historic tours, shopping, elegant old hotels and casinos and first rate night life. Rincon, a surfing Mecca, has been rated one of the Top Ten Beaches in the Caribbean by The Travel Channel, and is becoming a hot spot for destination weddings due to the fact that it is a direct flight from NYC and it offers both five-star hotels and elegant, private villas for events. The off shore islands of Culebra and Vieques are also a draw with their bioluminescent bays and fine wedding offerings.

Couples from the U.S. will find Puerto Rico to be an exotic yet easy destination for a destination wedding as it is easy to get to, most people speak English, the currency is the U.S. dollar and no pass ports are required.

I just completed a week of events at the Rincon Ocean Villa in Rincon, Puerto Rico. I first discovered Rincon a couple of years ago when I planned a 40th birthday party for a diamond importer. My impression at that point was that it was a funky little gem of a destination. I did not have much time to discover the last time I was there so I was pleased when I got a call on New Year’s Day from Glenn Tatangelo, the owner of the Rincon Ocean Villa, inviting me down to see the property. I suggested that we make it a party and bring down a group of destination wedding planners so that he could start building a sales team of sorts.

Destination | Rincon - at the Horned Dorset

I was asked to plan a 40th birthday party in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Although it was not my usual type of gig, I gladly accepted as I had always been intrigued with Rincon.

The assumption I previously had about Rincon was that it was an exclusive hide-away on the west coast. I was well aware of the world famous Horned Dorset Hotel and was looking forward to not only seeing it, but staying there, so that was my first call.

I took a direct flight out of JFK, which was quite convenient I might add. The Horned Dorset had a car waiting for me making my transfer seamless and easy. When I arrived I found myself in the middle of a BIG wedding celebration for the sister of the-one-and-only Ugly Betty! Everyone was having a marvelous time dancing under the stars in the courtyard outside the seaside restaurant.
