Puerto Rico’s “Despacio” Neighborhood Destroyed by Hurricane Maria

Images are coming out of San Juan’s La Perla neighborhood after the hurricane. La Perla was the location of the music video “Despacito.” In the video, the camera pans over bright colored homes stacked closely together alongside the rocky beach. But when hurricane Maria hit the area many of the brilliantly-colored buildings have been torn apart, leaving only hints of what once was La Perla.

It is so heartbreaking to see a neighborhood once a hotbed of crime and drugs change its image with the hard work of the residents and the help from artists Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee choosing to film the video from their hit song “Despacito” only to have it completely destroyed.
