New Years Eve is one of the greatest times to go out, party and have fun, no matter the age. Unfortunately everyone tend to only try to visit the trendiest of cities: New York, Las Vegas or Miami. Well I’ve put together a list of 3 other destinations that are just as much fun if not more enjoyable than the aforementioned trio. As well as being quite possibly a tad bit more inexpensive.
Note: Some destinations have yet to put out their New Years Eve lineup. Most are usually posted following Thanksgiving.

2. New Years Eve @ La Concha – A Renaissance Resort in San Juan Puerto Rico.
Enter the world of La Concha – A Renaissance Resort. Hip and cool, retro and chic, stylish and sophisticated – this is the quintessential San Juan beach hotel, and the place to be at. Selected as one of the Top 21 Hottest Caribbean Escapes by The Travel Channel, recognized as one of Architectural Digest’s Top Ten Hotels and chosen by Condé Nast Traveler as one of Puerto Rico’s hottest luxury hotel destination.
La Concha Beach Resort is situated on a breathtaking, sun-splashed corner of prime Caribbean beachfront in Condado, San Juan’s most elegant district. Fifteen minutes or less from Old San Juan and close to the most popular tourist destinations and the financial center, La Concha Resort is not only conveniently located, but also has everything the business and leisure traveler could possibly desire within the hotel itself.
A retro urban showcase and architectural landmark, La Concha Resort was originally built in 1958 and has now been completely re-imagined for the 21st century, after years of painstaking work and a $220 million investment. Puerto Rico’s premier resort and hotel destination projects a cool, edgy, Latino chic lifestyle with soulful hospitality and impeccable service – all presented in a truly playful and innovative environment.
With five on-site restaurants (including Perla, in the signature floating seashell), a state-of-the-art casino and 483 guest room accommodations boasting majestic views.
Even though we’re in the Caribbean, the temperature can drop one or two degrees in the winter so we keep our pools at a constant 85 degrees so that you’re comfortable no matter what time of year you stay with us
