If months of working from your home office has you desperate for a change of scenery, but a two-week vacation is not in the cards right now, Puerto Rico’s destination marketing team has you covered. The newly launched “Deskover Puerto Rico” contest is giving away six two-week “workations” for remote workers looking to trade in their stuffy living rooms for some fresh tropical air and warm Caribbean waters.
Applications are easy. To enter, visit the Discover Puerto Rico website by May 13 and submit a brief explanation of what the island-style work-life balance would mean to you. Roughly a week later, six lucky winners will be rewarded with round-trip economy airfare and 14 nights in a dreamy accommodation, from an apartment in historic San Juan to a suite at the Copamarina Beach Resort and Spa in Guánica to a floating villa off the coast of Fajardo.
For remote workers from the US, a “workation” in Puerto Rico is a no-brainer. Because the island is an American territory, they can leave their passports at home, and while travelers are expected to show proof a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours to enter, they need not worry about providing a negative test upon reentry to the States.
