Well the reason for this post is that here on Puerto Rico,
There is good news for all you cruiser that wants to visit
The Mayagüez port (the west side of the island).
This was news on 25 of September of 2007,
Sorry if I miss something on the translation but it was on Spanish:
The municipal government of Mayaguez has issue a new resolution that will benefit the cruise industry.
Mayagüez will pay any cruise ship that visits the Mayagüez port, the same amount of money that San Juan port is paying now to any cruise ship that visits their port.
Today San Juan port pays the Cruise ships, money per each day they visit their port.
This is the incentive that our tourism department uses to bring more cruise lines to our island.
Normally only San Juan port does this kind of incentive, so the cruise lines only disembark on San Juan because of this. Now, as Mayagüez develop their new policy, our port will receive the same importance as San Juan.
Here is the good news:
Some cruise lines had already started negotiations with our municipal government of Mayaguez; a few had even started to bring some of their cruises here.
So you know, a cruise ship was here on Mayagüez last week, and a Holland cruises is already on negotiations in order to make Mayagüez a port of call on their future routes on the Caribbean. So maybe on the future you will have the opportunity to visit our Island and my new island Pub, you know like Carlos and Charles on Aruba…
