Azores: destination to visit in 2019, for the New York Times

One destination for each week of the year. The New York Times made a list of the 52 places to visit throughout 2019.

And, as you would expect, on such a large list, there is everything: beach, nature, city, culture. Puerto Rico, the Caribbean island, with the status of unincorporated territory of the United States, appears as the first suggestion. To be reborn, a year and a half after the devastating Hurricane Maria, the island is again a place very close to the stereotype of paradise. New hotels, reestablishment of regular flights (for those who leave the USA, of course!) And the usual beaches. With the extra help of the country’s economy, are the reasons given.

The list continues, with Hampi, in India, with its temples indus, forts and palaces, heritage of humanity, second. The first destination in Europe is Munich, which comes in fifth place thanks mainly to its cultural offer, in particular the opera season. And ninth place the Azores.

A green exuberance, gigantic volcanic craters transformed into lagoons, natural hot springs that leave the earth, thousands of blue hydrangeas and the only coffee growers of Europe“, are the attributes associated with the Portuguese archipelago.
