Destination Weddings
Few islands in the Caribbean are as accessible or offer as many venue options as Puerto Rico. Wedding planners have access to locations, infrastructure, and services to fit every personality and vision on a couple’s big day. To maximize the potential of this niche market, the Government of Puerto Rico has streamlined the processes to fulfill the requirements for a marriage license. The Puerto Rico Tourism Company recently opened a Demographic Registry Office at the Old San Juan Information Center in Ochoa Building, which can issue a marriage license within hours of visiting.
