Welcome to Borinquen
in San Diego

HPRSD is A Non Profit Organization IRS code 501 (C) (3)

Puerto Rican FlagBorinquen is the Taino Indian name for Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans are proud to call themselves boricuas or borinqueños aiming to enrich themselves by living and sharing our rich Puerto Rican culture. The House of Puerto Rico San Diego was founded in 1972 by a group of Puerto Rican families in San Diego,led by Doña Casilda Pagán, who sought to preserve our history and culture, and to share our customs withour children and neighbors.

In February 2006, we inaugurated a cottage--La Casita --aimed to preserve our culture in the world-renown Balboa Park. Visit nuestra casita every Sunday afternoons from 12-4pm.

Hurricane Maria
Disaster Relief Fundraiser

The House is collecting monetary donations to help those affected by Hurricane Maria. You can donate online via button belowor in person during our lawn program on Sunday, September 24.

Please join us at 2pm before the program as we host a vigil for those impacted by this disaster.


Girl carring the Puerto Rican FlagDear Friends and Family:

The House has been approached by many asking how we can come together and help our beloved compadres and La Isla!

We will be hosting a vigil service at 2pm this Sunday, 9/24. [Time & location may change.] This will be before the traditional cultural programming we will be offering as part of our annual lawn program at 3pm (see flyer below).

  • Being that there is a concert at the Organ Pavilion, we may need to adjust our location. Check La Casita or the FB page for updates.

For those that would like to help financially, we have set up the following Cash Only options:

  1. a PayPal link for you to donate to help out those impacted (see section above);

  2. we have partnered with Benny's On The Go to do a fundraiser during our lawn program on Sunday. They have graciously donated Guayaba y Queso Pinwheels that we will be selling throughout the day. All proceeds from these will be donated directly to the House of Puerto Rico hurricane assistance fund; and

  3. cash donations can be dropped off at Lawn program food booth in front of La Casita. Please specify that it is earmarked for the disaster relief fund.

During this difficult time, the House of Puerto Rico welcomes each and every Boricua in San Diego to join us as we come together in support of Puerto Rico.

Pass the word about Sunday 9/24 Lawn Program!

Learn. Live. Share Our Culture.
