Reigning Miss World Mireia Lalaguna arrived in Puerto Rico this week as a special guest to the Miss Mundo Puerto Rico organisation. Spending a week in the Caribbean paradise, Mireia will attend several of the challenge events in the run up to the national final.

At a press conference held yesterday morning Mireia said "For me it is an honour to be in this country that I have never visited before. It is the first time I'm in the Caribbean and all the people have received me very well. I'm with a smile on my face that no one can take away from me! I enjoy travelling a lot; every place is completely different and enriches me. I have a feeling I cannot explain with words."

Miss World was received by Secretary of State Rolando Torres Carrión and was joined by Puerto Rico National Director & Miss World 1975 Wilnelia Merced, alongside reigning Miss Mundo Puerto Rico Keysi Vargas, with the later joining Mireia for a photo shoot in the afternoon.

Mireia: "I arrived very tired but I had a great reception at the airport from my friend Keysi (current who I met in December in China and Wilnelia Merced, Miss World 1975. In such a short time here I have felt the warmth of the people, the country, and I am excited waiting to know more about this city. "

Miss world continued, saying “It is so nice to see Keysi again, I was really looking forward to it. It’s one of the great things about being Miss World, every nation I visit there is this one person there already who I have shared a unique experience with, and we have this bond, it’s really something.”

Miss Mundo Puerto Rico takes place on the 18th March at the Fine Arts Center in Santurce, broadcast live on Telemundo at 8:00 p.m local time.
