"First off, I'd like to personally thank Maria, she was a easy to work with during the booking process and answered every question I had, as well as addressed every concern. Thank you Maria! We will be visiting PR again and will certainly book your property again if it's available.
Secondly, the westside of the island, where this house is located is quite, tranquil, majestic and is a true taste of paradise. You're so close to a lot of great things to do and see. The local beaches are amazing. I recommend Crash Boat, Jobos, Surfers Beach, Survival Beach. If you're up for a bit more of an adventure I recommend Gozalandia Waterfalls in San Sebastian (35 minute drive) It's gorgeous there, you hike, swim and explore. A little further, you have La Parguera in Lajas (1.5 hour drive) where you can checkout great snorkeling and the amazing Bio-Bay tour (think of glowing water). A little further even, is Monkey Island in Cayo Santiago (2 hour drive) where you can kayak up to, but not on the island that is only inhabited by monkeys (it's WAY cool). We went and got to watch them for a couple of hours. It's WAY better than any zoo experience. You can find all of these places on Trip Advisor. Last but not least was our favorite trip Batey Del Cemi in Utuado (1.5 hour drive) we hiked, crossed a suspension bridge, rappelled 150' cliff and zip lined (8 zip lines) all while in the middle of what seemed like the jungle, it was AMAZING! Just search for Things To Do in the cities mentioned and you will get a better idea as well as see pictures. We did all of the above and LOVED every bit of it. I had a party of 4 adults. We were only in Puerto Rico for a week, but we toured the island multiple times.
Again, I HIGHLY recommend Solimar, it's beauty, charm and views are worth experiencing time and time again. Thank you, thank you, thank you Maria and family for extending your hospitality to us. I travel a lot, but overall this was my best vacation yet. I will cherish the memories I created there forever."
