Fajardo condo description

WELCOME TO PARADISE!

Located in the most eastern tip of the island of Puerto Rico and only 45 minutes east of San Juan, Fajardo is known as "La Metrópolis del Este" (Metropolis of the East), and a major tourism and recreation area. The location is ideal, with easy access to the archipelago of Vieques, Culebra and the nearby day-sailing cays of Icacos, Diablo, Palominos and Palominitos. In addition, there are a number of large marinas in the area as well as an airport and a major nature preserve. The 316-acre Las Cabezas de San Juan nature preserve features a lighthouse that has been in continuous operation since 1882, is one of the oldest lighthouses in Puerto Rico and the only one used for nautical reasons in the entire island. The tour of this area includes the lighthouse, the mangroves and the Bio luminescent Lagoon, one of the few Bio-Bays in the world. Reservations are required to enter the grounds and take the tour.

We have the best of worlds, the El Yunque Rain Forest and the beautiful coastal beaches. The panoramic views from the apartment are spectacular and breathtaking. From the front, The Marina and the El Conquistador and Caribbean Sea and on your left an impressive, gorgeous panoramic views of El Yunque National Rain Forest and the Puerto Rican mountains. The sunset and sunrise are stunning. Seven Seas Beach (5 minutes from the apartment), with spectacular crystal blue waters and a white sand beach is located at Las Croabas, Fajardo, Puerto Rico. One of the top beaches of the world, Seven Seas is a popular beach for snorkeling around the coral reefs, and water sports. The clear waters are teeming with vibrant tropical fish and coral reefs and are protected by offshore reefs. The region is part of the National Parks System and is considered a "World Blue Flag Beach". In order to obtain the Blue Flag distinction, a beach has to comply with a set of very strict standards in terms of water quality, safety and services, environmental education and information. Blue Flag Beaches are continually monitored for water and land environmental safety.

Luquillo Beach (my very favorite in the whole island) is only 15 minutes away. Its turquoise colors are something to behold!

With access to the world famous "El conquistador Resort Country Club Hotel and Casino" Fajardo is popular among tourists, especially local tourists, because of its seafood, hotels and closeness to the smaller islands. Fajardo is the hub of the majority of recreational boating in Puerto Rico and a popular launching port for the many daily trips that are available to Culebra, Vieques, and the American and BritishVirgin Islands. It is also the home to the largest Marina in the Caribbean, called Puerto del Rey. Fajardo is well known for its excellent day sailing, snorkeling and diving. The day-sailing trips normally take you to one of the nearby cays for a day of snorkeling, sun bathing and feasting (food and soft drinks are part of the deal). These are; Icacos, Palomino and Palominito and Diablo among other uninhabited coral islands which provide even more opportunities for fantastic snorkeling, hiking and exploring. For the divers, there is excellent clear water all around the cays, with plenty to explore. Of course, the seafood in this area is fresh and delicious. Local companies or at local Marinas you can get and organize guided tours to take you for a fun day. Especially popular are the Kayak Tours of the Bioluminescent Laguna Grande, which is in Seven Seas Beach and next to Palma Vista Villa. Also 7 minutes by car and in the town of Fajardo ferryboats can take you to Vieques and Culebra, with more places to explore and World-renowned beaches to enjoy. Vieques and Culebra can also be reached by air from Ceiba Airport. Ceiba Airport, which is a 20-minute drive from our apartment. Where else can you hop on a ferry to visit two small islands, go on a catamaran to snorkel, drift on a phosphorescence river, go to a casino, play golf in a challenging course, delight yourself with best local cuisine, minutes away from an outlet?

Seeing more of the island is easy when you take a side trip to see its natural attractions as a part of a day at the beach. A perfect example is El Yunque National Rainforest, which is 22.8 km (14.2 miles) from our apartment. The variety of places with the best seafood you will enjoy is overwhelming using local fresh ingredients and produce and always a perfect service and a smile. From local traditional cuisine to international high-end restaurants at the Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador Resort, just 2 km (1.2 miles) from Palma Vista Villa.

Some interesting places to visit close by: Loíza (bomba y plena), Canóvanas (the racetrack), Río Grande (fabulous golf courses and El Yunque, the Caribbean National Forest), Luquillo (the best-known beach on the Island, Balneario de Luquillo), Fajardo (day sailing to the cays of Icacos, Palominos and Palominitos), Culebra and Vieques (exquisite beaches), Ceiba (the Ceiba Forest), Naguabo (the seaside boardwalk), Humacao (a strip of excellent seafood restaurants), Juncos and Las Piedras (local artisans), Yabucoa (Lucía Beach) and Maunabo (the start of the Luis Muñoz Marín Route).

The minimum rental period for the property is five (5) days and the maximum occupancy is six (8) persons.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: After several years living overseas, Michael and Zoveida are looking forward to retirement.

          Why the Owner Chose Fajardo:
          We have lifelong ties to Puerto Rico, but we have always loved the Fajardo area. My two favorite beaches, Luquillo and Seven Seas, are a few minutes drive away. Outside the San Juan area you find less traffic, and a relaxed atmosphere. Fajardo has a small town feel and people are very friendly resulting in a wonderful quality of life. The combination of the lush vegetation on the mountains on one side and the turquoise of the sea on the other side force you to slow down and relax. A few years ago I visited a friend who lives at Dos Marinas and had the opportunity to see a family of manatees and a group of dolphins frolicking and fell in love with the place there and then!

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          This corner apartment is one of the few 3-bedroom units in Dos Marinas.
