BIENVENIDOS to the first annual Beary Boricua, a weekend of tropical sun where the bears can put off hibernating just a bit longer. This is a Bear Weekend like no other, with a Puerto Rican tropical flair.

We'll be exploring the porc highway (infamous roadtrip featured on Anthony Bourdains' show), pool mixer, beach party and fun nights out. Reserve now for our limited space at the host hotels. You'll always remember the first event.
