Originating from Puerto Rico, the term “Reggaeton” was first coined and pioneered by the King of Reggaeton himself, Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, aka Daddy Yankee. He first debuted as a solo artist on April 2, 1995, with the album, No Mercy. He eventually formed his own unique style and, with the release of Playero 36, reggaeton was born. This would be the beginning of his steady rise on the charts, cementing his status as one of the most lauded artists today. To celebrate his latest successes, Daddy Yankee opens his home to fans–now you, too, can get an up-close look at his life and music with a night’s stay at his Puerto Rican retreat.
To commemorate his more than 85 chart-topping singles, the reggaeton king has decreed his home to be available for rent for 85 USD a night, as a thank you to his supporters.
Staying true to his Latin roots, the king’s home showcases vibrant and contemporary decorations designed by local designer Fernando Rodriguez who took inspiration from Puerto Rican culture and musical hits like “Gasolina,” “Con Calma,” and “Dura.”
Upon arrival at the home, you will be virtually greeted by the king himself as he shows you all the things that he loves about Luquillo. You’re given access to his private memorabilia, including his vast collection of awards. There is also a wide array of activities you can do here from enjoying a relaxing dip in the outdoor pool to a fun game on the volleyball court.
And the fun doesn’t end inside the home. Explore Luquillo’s famous beaches and the beautiful El Yunque National Forest. There is even a “locals only” guide that shows you Daddy Yankee’s favorite local restaurants, bars, and attractions around town. And finally, you’re even treated to playlist of Daddy Yankee’s all-time favorite songs, specially curated for your stay.
