Fight Zika Fear With Facts

By Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Special for  USDR

Proud Puerto Rican Mónica Puig, who won Puerto Rico’s first gold medal at the Rio Olympics, recently returned home to enjoy a worry free time with her family and friends as she celebrated her win. Puig also spent time working with local officials to raise awareness of protection and prevention programs to stop the spread of   Zika.

Puig says that Puerto Rico is a great getaway for everyone and travelers should know the facts when planning a trip to the island, “Zika can have serious consequences for pregnant women and those looking to get pregnant. But if you’re not pregnant or planning to have a family in the near future, come visit Puerto Rico, my home sweet  home.”
