Porta Atlantico is the new tourism region along the north coast of Puerto Rico. The region was named by The Puerto Rico Tourism Company, and covers the towns of Camuy, Hatillo, Arecibo, Barceloneta, Manatí, Vega Baja, Vega Alta, Dorado and Toa Alta.
Porta Atlantico will cover the major tourist attractions of the north coast of Puerto Rico: Surfing beaches, the Río Camuy Cave Park, the third-largest cave system in the world, and the Arecibo Observatory, the planet’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Porta Atlantico will also cover the Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton Reserve, which opens in December 2012.
Launching a tourism region like Porta Atlantico secures job creation and long-term economic development for the region.
