My City, My Heart: Southwest and Matador Network Showcase Employee Hometown Destinations


It sometimes can be hard picking a location for your next vacation. There are so many great possibilities that it’s difficult to narrow it down. Not to worry! We’re here to help you by showing you some insider tips to give you the best spots to visit in our destinations. And who better to help you than our very own Employees! 


Southwest is proud to partner with Matador Network to release the first of a four-episode series called, My City, My Heart: An Insiders’ Guide by Southwest Employees. Follow four of our Employees as they show you the best places to go in their hometowns.





Episode One features 12-year Employee and Southwest Flight Attendant Javier who takes us to his favorite spots from his hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico! Javier will show you a unique way to see the beauty of his hometown island. From the beautiful beach of Isla Verde, to a popular cocktail and salsa place, there is so much Puerto Rico has to offer. He’ll even show you a more adventurous way to see San Juan: jet-skiing!


These episodes will launch on Matador Network’s digital channels in August. Starting in September, Southwest Customers can view the series onboard WiFi-equipped flights via the custom Southwest Destinations TV Channel on the Onboard Entertainment Portal.


In addition to the four episodes showcasing Southwest Employees and their hometowns, Southwest-sponsored editorial content will distribute across Matador Network. The editorial pieces highlight the value of using—not losing—hard-earned vacation days and perfecting the art of the five-day weekend, offering creative solutions to make your vacation days work even harder for rest and relaxation.
