King of Reggaetón, Daddy Yankee, Becomes Puerto Rico’s latest Airbnb Host

With countless awards, number one hits and chart-topping music videos, Daddy Yankee is one of the most recognized Latin music superstars of all time, helping to lead in the genre’s resurgence. As a pioneer of the “reggaetón” movement, he cemented his place in music history by creating hit after hit and used his undeniable talent to build a community for people all over the world.

But one thing he’s never done is invite his fans to see his home that inspired his success, and where he’s simply known as “Ramón Ayala.” This fall, while he’s on the road, Daddy Yankee is becoming an Airbnb Host and inviting a few guests to stay in his personal home in Luquillo. The mountain retreat is where he goes to get away from it all, and ground himself in family and the beauty of his country’s history and traditions.

“A love for music and for Puerto Rico runs in my blood,” said Daddy Yankee. “By hosting these stays, I want to share la cultura de mi gente, our pride and our flavor – and demonstrate how easy it can be to invite others into your world, with el calor that completes it.”

Daddy Yankee, staying true to his Latin roots and the heritage that thrives on hospitality, is opening up his Puerto Rico home for three individual one-night stays for up to two guests, occurring on December 13, December 15 and December 17 for only $85* a night – commemorating his more than 85 chart-topping singles. Daddy Yankee will virtually greet guests upon arrival; and during their stay, guests will get to experience all the things that he loves about his home in Luquillo, including:

  • Vibrant and contemporary decor by local designer Fernando Rodriguez, that’s inspired by Puerto Rican culture and some of the musician’s biggest hits like “Gasolina,” “Con Calma,” and “Dura.”
  • Access to Daddy Yankee’s private memorabilia, including his vast awards collection, and more.
  • Swimming in the outdoor pool (don’t worry, it’s warm all year round in Luquillo!) or playing dominos in the pool house.
  • Play a competitive round of pool while watching your favorite music videos in the activities room, or head over to the retreat’s private volleyball court for a quick match.
  • The opportunity to explore Luquillo’s famous beaches (perfect for the ultimate jangueo), and the beloved El Yunque National Forest.
  • A “locals only” guide with Daddy Yankee’s recommended local restaurants and bars, and other spots to visit nearby. 
  • A specially-curated playlist of Daddy Yankee’s all-time favorite songs so you can listen (and dance to) during your stay.
