Puerto Rico officially announced to host Miss World 2021 in December

For the first time in history, the Miss World pageant goes to Latin America with Puerto Rico being confirmed as the official host of the competition later this year.

The official announcement, joined by the local organizers and former Miss World Stephanie del Valle, was streamed live via Miss World's social media page on Wednesday, March 10.

Following its cancellation last year due to COVID-19, the 70th Miss World pageant is now scheduled to be held on December 16 at the Coca-Cola Music Hall in San Juan.

The organizers considered hosting the prestigious event a great opportunity to promote the Caribbean island as a tourist destination after the economic setback brought by the pandemic especially to its tourism industry.

Over 100 beauties with a purpose from around the world will arrive in Puerto Rico by November and they will surely be in for an exciting treat. The final promises a great show in a 3-hour spectacular telecast that is expected to attract an audience of two billion people worldwide.
