The Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC), Ingrid I. Rivera Rocafort, and the Mayor of San Sebastian, Javier Jimenez Perz, recently announced the opening of the first bed-and-breakfast in the municipality of San Sebastian, Puerto Rico.  

The San Sebastian B&B, located in the center of town, has four bedrooms and encompasses a Creole-inspired atmosphere through its mix of antique and contemporary furnishings. Rates start at $99 per night.
Yaiza Arvelo Serrano and Edwin Cortes Seguinot, owners of the B&B in San Sebastian and new entrepreneurs in the tourism industry, believed that tourism development could blossom with the first two bed-and-breakfasts certified by the PRTC program,” said Rivera Rocafort in written release. “With an investment of nearly $65,000, the opening of the B&B in San Sebastian will increase room availability by four units, as well as offer three direct and five indirect jobs.”

The San Sebastian B&B offers personalized service and a complete breakfast, including local produce found throughout the island.
