Come to Puerto Rico in January and catch Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton again.GLADYS VEGA

Puerto Rico’s destruction, as we all know, was catastrophic, and the island’s most remote areas are still recovering, more than a year after Hurricane Maria. The major highways and roads, however, are in good condition once again, the San Juan airport is fully operational, and the country plans to add 25 percent more hotel rooms by the end of 2019. Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, which was founded by Laurance Rockefeller 60 years ago, didn’t suffer any structural damage, but it has updated all 114 of its beach front rooms (think floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor showers; some have private plunge pools), as well as Su Casa, the five-bedroom villa where Amelia Earhart spent one of her last holidays. For several months last year the resort served as the main base of operations for the World Central Kitchen, helping provide millions of meals to the community. Through February it will be donating $10 per room to Flamboyan Arts Fund, an initiative founded by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who will be reprising his role in Hamilton at the University of Puerto Rico in January. (L.K.)
