FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2018 | WELCOME TO PUERTO RICO! | OPENING CEREMONY
Today you’ll arrive in San Juan, the Spanish-colonial capital of Puerto Rico on the Caribbean coast. Upon arrival, meet your Music Contact International tour manager and travel by private motor coach to your hotel in the Ponce area (approximately 2 hours from San Juan). For those arriving early, sightseeing can be arranged for your group. Tour La Fortaleza, the official residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico, or take a walk through the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and enjoy a visit to El Moro, the 15th century Spanish fort at the mouth of San Juan Harbor. Tonight, choirs gather for the Opening Ceremony, which includes wonderful performances by local Puerto Rican musicians and welcoming words from representatives of the host city of Ponce. After the presentation, you’ll be treated to a lovely dinner and have an opportunity to mingle with your fellow attendees.
