Christmas Services

We would like to attend a church for Christmas services (Eve or Day)... any recommendations for a more "authentic" experience? Are there other activities that would be culturally unique for the holidays?

Thanks!

1. Re: Christmas Services

Any service should be "authentic" as congregations are generally formed to serve local people rather than tourists. There is a Catholic Church in Isabel Segunda called Immaculate Conception. I believe there are Methodist and Episcopal churches as well. It's probably easiest to find service times by just stopping by while you are there to see what times are posted. Most services for Catholics are on Christmas Day rather than Christmas Eve.

Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) is a very family oriented celebration night. So most culturally unique traditions will be family centered. You may be able to find something going on at the W, but I'm thinking it will be oriented towards visitors rather than local culture. Maybe you can find a Parranda to hitch on to, but again that's usually friends or family; calling on friends or family. It's kind of Puerto Rican style Christmas caroling, but a lot more fun.
