The Best Christmas Destinations Around the World

San Juan, Puerto Rico

There are only twelve days of Christmas, right? Not in Puerto Rico. This U.S. commonwealth begins its celebrations the day after Thanksgiving and keeps the Yuletide spirit flowing until the feast of the three kings on January 6. During the six-week-long festivity, visitors can enjoy Christmas decorations seen at homes, businesses and throughout the streets. While you're there, you should also witness one of Puerto Rico's famous holiday traditions—group caroling called parrandas. Visitors to this Caribbean locale can also experience unique holiday culinary customs like lechón asado—roast pig on a spit—a coconut pudding called Tembleque, or the sweet sap from a Chilean palm tree, coquito.
