Where to stay

Sometimes part of the fun of a tango festival is checking into the hotel. While the PRTF’s classes and milongas are not in a hotel, there are plenty of great hotels within walking distance. And since the PRTF has activities all day and all night, you won’t want to miss out on any of the action. Whether you are traveling from out of the Island or just outside of Old San Juan, you may want to consider staying close to all the action this weekend so you don’t miss a single class or tanda!
