It's been a busy year for Puerto Rico, and another year of new discoveries and fun adventures for me. This year was extra special because our family celebrated my father's 70th birthday on the island (seriously, if you're looking for a place to mark a special event or occasion, Puerto Rico is a truly wonderful choice).
My experiences and all the big stories about or from the island inspired me to come up with a list of Top 10 Puerto Rican stories of 2012. Now, just to be clear, I stayed away from news stories and focused on things that impacted tourism. Like the introduction of a new tourist region, the opening of two luxury hotels, and and much more. Peppered in this list are a few of my more memorable adventures in 2012, and I couldn't avoid two of the biggest stories of the year: Tropical Storm Isaac and the 2012 referendum on statehood.
As we welcome the New Year, here's hoping for many more adventures, welcome new additions to the island, and a whole lot of fun for all of us who visit my favorite island in the sun.
