As part of this partnership, Airbnb launched its Experiences feature on the island, helping guests enjoy the authentic Puerto Rico through unique, handcrafted activities hosted by locals. The company is set to donate its fees from trips booked in Puerto Rico for the next three months to organisations including All Hands and Hearts, a volunteer relief non-profit, and local recovery organisations.
Airbnb and the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) will also launch a destination marketing campaign highlighting the diverse experiences the island has to offer.
“Puerto Rico has long been a top destination for travellers looking to experience its rich culture, beautiful scenery, and incredible hospitality,” said Chesky. According to the company, Airbnb wants to show the Airbnb community worldwide that Puerto Rico is open for business and ready to host them.
