It isn't a visitor's goal in Puerto Rico goal to participate in one of the many cultural events held in this complex. But taking advantage of returning our rental car to one of the hotels located right next to this architectural environment, we took a look and learnt a little more about the social concerns of the islanders.
The Convention Center of Puerto Rico is the Caribbean's largest and most technologically advanced in all Latin America. With a total space of 53,882 m2, the Center has capacity for 10,000 people, and stands in an ideal environment, amidst all that the island offers. Its considered an architectural homage to the many natural attributes of Puerto Rico, and the architects certainly gave it the "techno-tropical" touch announcing the natural beauty of the Star Island and its entry into the technological future. They succeeded, in large part, to include images of water and the ocean around the center, and infusing the colors and textures of flora and fauna in Puerto Rico.
As a final touch, the technicians took advantage of the solar orientation of the Island to design a spectacular space for outdoor functions preliminary, with panoramic views stretching from Old San Juan to the beaches and the ocean beyond the tourist and hotel district. Although you can't go inside, you should spend half an hour walking around and observing the different architectural aspects that integrate the complex with sea and land.
