Instead of just one day, Christmas festivities in Puerto Rico extend several weeks and are filled with family activities, religious ceremonies, parades, and parties. The Condado Vanderbilt exudes excitement and festive cheer, which can be found throughout our luxury hotel in Puerto Rico.

Each year, this day falls on January 6th, which is another distinguished holiday Puerto Ricans celebrate.
