Celebrate the Magic of the Holiday Season at Fairmont El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico, the Island of Enchantment, takes on a special glow during the holiday season. Walk around the impressive streets of Old San Juan, attend Holiday concerts, seasonal festivals, and much more! There’s lots to discover in paradise during this special season, an awaited one for every Puerto Rican.

Christmas in Puerto Rico, known as “Navidad,” is a vibrant and festive celebration deeply rooted in both the traditions and the culture. It typically begins after Thanksgiving and extends into January, making it one of the longest holiday seasons in the world.  Musical highlights include the parrandas and aguinaldos. Parrandas are Puerto Rico’s version of caroling. Groups of friends and family surprise each other by showing up unannounced at their homes with musical instruments and singing traditional Holiday songs, adding a lively atmosphere to the season. Aguinaldos are similar to Holiday caroling and involve singing and receiving small gifts or treats in return. This tradition promotes community bonding and spreading joy during the season.

Traditional Puerto Rican holiday dishes are also a significant part of the celebration. Roast pork, pasteles (rectangular meat pies), arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas), and coquito (a coconut-based alcoholic beverage) are among the must-try dishes during the season. Above all, Holidays in Puerto Rico is a time for coming together as a community and with family. It’s a season of unity, reflection, and sharing the joy of the holiday spirit. Puerto Rico’s Christmas celebrations are a unique blend of Spanish, African, and indigenous Taíno influences, creating a distinctive and lively holiday experience that is cherished by both locals and visitors alike.
