SAN JUAN --Building on the success of last year's program, Puerto Rico again designated September as Travel Agent Month---and added lots more goodies to sweeten the pot.

"Our travel agent partners play a vital role in making Puerto Rico a leading vacation destination," said Jose Suarez, executive director of Puerto Rico Tourism Co. "We want to keep bringing them back to our island to experience our activities and culture."

Incentives this year include discounted rates more hotels and paradores (family-owned inns), special Hertz rates, reduced fares on Spirit, American and United and a chance to win a three-night stay at the Ritz Carlton San Juan Spa & Casino.
