Pristine beaches, a barefoot luxury resort with villa style accommodations, unique activities and an opportunity to give back to the local community … sounds like a perfect family beach vacation, right?
Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, is the best resort in Puerto Rico for families. And, following the devastating, back-to-back hurricanes of 2017 is set to reopen in October 2018 . This property carries a rich legacy in Puerto Rico, originally the Laurence Rockefeller estate. Set apart from the island’s main tourist areas, the experience at Dorado Beach has always been rooted in privacy and cultural immersion.
Now more than ever, a family trip to the Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton Reserve offers an opportunity to give back to a community that is still on the mend. Here’s how…
First and foremost, tourism supports a wide range of industries around the island of Puerto Rico. Simply being there, and spending your money in Puerto Rico, is the best way to help. Dorado Beach provides year-round employment to hundreds of Puerto Ricans. Furthermore, fresh food and supplies are purchased locally, which is a significant source of income and independence for this community.
In addition to the resort facilities, the property consists of a 1,400 acre beachfront reserve. Over the past year, the Dorado Beach team have added over 300,000 new plants and native wildlife back into this area, a massive restoration project!
Kids will love helping plant and prune some of these new additions, as well as assisting the on-property biologist in any number of things that may be happening during your stay.
Finally, because the Reserve is located away from the main tourist areas and San Juan proper, the local communities consist largely of the resort’s employees and their families. While the needs may vary, there are always needs such as supplies for the school and women’s health clinic. This is a great opportunity for children to collect what is needed and make a meaningful, personal donation while in Puerto Rico.
