If you’re a frequent traveler to the island, you know Puerto Rico Airbnbs are the way to go to have a comfortable, authentic experience anywhere you visit. Now, though, Airbnb is putting its influence (and a chunk of its fees) to work to help Puerto Rico recover its footing after Hurricane Maria.
Airbnb is ideal for people making their first (or second or third) visit to Puerto Rico to explore the benefits of Act 20 or Act 22. If you’re thinking of relocating yourself, your family, and/or your business to Puerto Rico, you need a way to get to know the island like a local. And now Airbnb is donating part of its booking fees—and introducing amazing new experiences—to help Puerto Rico rebuild its tourism infrastructure.
If you’ve never visited Puerto Rico’s thriving cities, there’s never been a better time to go—and if you’re a repeat visitor, you should consider permanent residence and tax incentives like Act 20 and Act 22 that make the island such an attractive destination to retire or relocate your business. Ready to visit? Book your next trip at one of these top 10 Airbnbs in Puerto Rico?
