San Juan Celebrations

  1. This weekend is cause for much celebration, Summer officially began yesterday, School is out for Summer, we are going to have a beautiful view of a Super Moon AND it's San Juan too! Now there are some good excuses to party, not like we need any on this island.

    The San Juan celebrations which you can read more about here take place in various beaches and villages of the island on the Noche de San Juan 23rd June. Bonfires will light up the beaches and hills and there will be an impressive firework display in Las Palmas on Las Canteras Beach.

    If you can't get to Las Palmas on 23rd then there is also a party in Playa del Ingles near Anexo I from 21:30h with music, dancing, fires and fun!


    A Super Moon is going to be visible on the same night as San Juan, so whilst enjoying the party, look to the skies and see if you can see the man in the moon, when the moon is at it's closest to the Earth!

  2. Noche de San Juan is on 23rd June every year and is a magical evening filled with good food, dancing, fireworks and bonfires.

    Nearby Playa de Mogan is hosting a fiesta to honour this Saint and with Mogan even easier to reach from Puerto Rico via the new tunnel, consider it as a place to check out this fiesta. From 20:00h there will be a mass and procession followed by dancing, the traditional food of ‘piñas’ which you may know as ‘corn on the cob’ a bonfire, fireworks and concert from Furia Joven.

    Also don’t forget to watch the skies for the Super Moon – the moon will be at it’s closest to the Earth causing it to look huge and this will look fantastic especially as it looks like we will have clear skies over the weekend.
