Hit song sends 45% more travelers to Puerto Rico

Song of the summer, Despacito, is not only making its mark on the worldwide music charts, but according to Hotels.com it’s also sending travelers flocking to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. The travel expert reveals that since the song launched on 17th April searches for the Caribbean island are up more than 45%*.

The Despacito remix, by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, has been a global hit, and while the literal translation of the song name means ‘slowly’, it seems holidaymakers are doing the opposite and rushing to see Puerto Rico.

Isabelle Pinson, Vice President, EMEA at Hotels.com brand said: ‘Puerto Rico has long been a vacation destination but to many travelers it is still pretty unknown. We know popular culture has a strong influence on our travel decisions and as Puerto Rico is the home of singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, it seems to be encouraging more people to explore this great destination.’
