The Puerto Rico Tourism Co. (PRTC) launched a fall promotion that offers both travel agents and visitors a complimentary adventure tour when they book a four-night or longer stay with participating hotels by Sept. 16 for travel by Nov. 16.
The promotion, a first for Puerto Rico, is designed to highlight island attractions from foodie tours to zipline thrills, according to Luis Rivera-Marin, PRTC executive director.
“PRTC is eager to welcome travel agents to the island to familiarize them with our offerings,” he said. “Research shows that vacations booked through agents are booked further in advance and for longer stays because they involve their customers with more of what we have to offer than do vacations scheduled independently by travelers.”
Puerto Rico wants to work with agents to give them “the resources they need to excel as well as opportunities to enjoy the destination for themselves,” according to Rivera-Marin.
Agents can book the companion consumer promotion for clients.
Complimentary offerings in the promotion include kayaking in a bioluminescent bay (Puerto Rico is home to three of the only six such bays in the world); hiking in El Yunque rain forest; a culinary tour of San Juan; a catamaran tour; a city tour of Old San Juan or Caguas; a visit to ToroVerde Adventure Park, which features ziplining on the Beast, the world’s highest zipline; a guided biking excursion in Old San Juan; and golf on any of several world-class courses.
