PRHTA marks 60th anniversary

Puerto Rican Chef Giovanna Huyke takes part in the anniversary fete.

The Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association recently celebrated 60 years of achievements with a special event at the Puerto Rico Museum of Art.

“This is a historic day for Puerto Rico’s hospitality industry as we rejoice in PRHTA’s 60 years,” PRHTA President Clarisa Jiménez said. “We have worked hard during these decades to offer our members, and our tourism industry, excellence in service.”

The event attended by members of the island’s tourism sector, was marked by a pictorial review of the last six decades, “images [that] have helped to bring back to life many significant events as part of the Association’s collective achievements,” said Ismael Vega, president of the PRHTA’s Board of Directors.

Founded in 1950, the PRHTA has 580 corporate members, among which are large, mid-size and small hotels, restaurants, airlines and others businesses that serve the tourism industry.
