Sometimes you just need travel advice from a local. If you’re planning a trip to Puerto Rico, allow Bad Bunny to be your guide for the best places to visit. The “Ojitos Lindos” singer was born and bred on the island, so you can bet he knows all the hottest spots!

Where to Shop

As one of the most famous artists in the world, Bad Bunny has also adopted the role of a style icon. If you’re keen to follow in his fashionable ways, you’ve got to head to Calle Loíza in San Juan. Pop into Back Door Vintage, Vice Versa, and Electroshock to browse for some threads.

What to Eat

Spanish, African, and Caribbean flavors play a huge part in Puerto Rican cuisine. Be sure to visit some little restaurants along the coast where the seafood is fresh. Octopus ceviche is a recommended dish, as is mofongo which is mashed plantain that has been shaped into a ball and filled with some form of protein. 

Where to Party

Puerto Ricans love to dance, so expect to find good music and even better vibes in most bars that you find. Check out La Cueva del Mar in San Juan, La Placita in Santurce, or Aljibe and Calle Bosque in Mayagüez. The party tends to move to the beach where people jive till the sun rises.
