  • OUTSTANDING STAY--HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    "This was our daughter's senior trip and we stayed at Aquatika. We all loved Puerto Rico! Starting with J.C. (Juan Carlos), who was a great help and source of local information. He met us at the airport and we followed him in our rental car to the grocery store and then to Loiza. He showed us around and gave us many suggestions about where to eat and what to do. We also got many helpful ideas from the packet that the owner Jeff gave us plus the notebook that previous guests had filled out more helpful information. Aquatika is beautiful and quiet--at least quiet during the week days. Seems to be a bit more hopping on the weekends as many of the local PR folks come here to Aquatika on the weekends. But with all the pools and the beach front it was never too crowded. We ventured out to the rain forest--which we all loved--catamaran/snorkeling in Fajardo--which was totally awesome, and many other daily excursions. We also spent a few days just hanging out in the condo. It was really nice having separate bedrooms for the kids so we didn't have to be together all the time like you do at a hotel/resort room. We enjoyed the second floor tv room, and going outside on the balcony and either catching some sun, or napping in the hammock:) Overall it was a wonderful trip and we would highly recommend renting this condo in Aquatika. The owner Jeff and JC his local guide are great and made the whole trip a pleasure!! Thanks again J.C., Jeff, and to all the great locals that we met on the most awesome vacation yet."

  • EXCELENT GETAWAY

    "Its was a very spacious and comfortable house for our family (11). It was very neat and has everything you need. Beautiful pool and the sight to Gilligan's island from the deck is amazing watching the ferry come and go all day. There are beautiful beaches nearby, a nearby Econo for groceries just minutes away and a shopping mall not so far. We had dinner in a very nice restaurant in La Parguera. Its a place where you forget about everything and just have a nice time. When I think of our vacations in casa ballena I get this great feeling of escaping from it all and just wish I could be there with my family again."

  • I already miss this place!

    "My wife, two daughters (age 3 and 1), grandmother and great-aunt and I stayed here from the 9-13th of APR 2014. We really enjoyed it! The pictures on the website, in my opinion, do not do justice to the home. IT is beautiful with beautiful views, in a safe and secure community, with awesome amenities. I consider myself a very cautious shopper-- we looked at about 15 different homes before deciding on this one. I'm SO glad we picked this one, too. Luis was a great person to deal with. He was available, via text of phone calls, for quick questions during the duration of our stay. Not only would I HIGHLY recommend this unit for families, I full expect to stay here on our next trip to PR! A+++++++ Payten & Alaina"

Puerto Rico Travel Tips

Visitors to Puerto Rico Vacation Rentals

Puerto Rico is a vibrant Caribbean island travel destination. It is a place where you can enjoy beautiful beaches, fine dining, a wide variety of water sports and a number of nature attractions. People who generally travel to Puerto Rico are attracted by the persistent sunshine and tropical island paradise. Depending on if you enjoy the vibrant resort-style vacation or something more remote and quiet, you can choose which part of the island you want to stay on. Relax on the beaches during the day and then hit the nightspots for some dancing in the evenings.

Best Time of Year to Visit Puerto Rico Villas

The most popular travel season to Puerto Rico is between December and April. During this time, visitors can expect hot sunny days with very little rainfall. In general, this is considered to be the dry season, although occasional rain showers do still occur. Another reason that this is a popular time of year to visit is that the humidity levels are lower. The warm weather also attracts many visitors from New York City, Boston and Chicago who want to escape the winter freeze. In general, there is little seasonal variation in the temperature in Puerto Rico. The seasons are more often defined by the humidity and rainfall. From May through October, the amount of rainfall increases, making the air muggy and sticky. This makes it feel as though it is much hotter. From July to October, tropical storms sometimes hit the islands, bringing heavy rainfall and strong winds. This is typically the low tourist season in Puerto Rico.

Getting to Puerto Rico Resort Rentals

The main airport on Puerto Rico is located just nine miles from San Juan. The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport hosts frequent international flights from North America, Europe, South America and neighboring Caribbean destinations. As a U.S. foreign territory, flights from America are viewed as regional rather than international flights. San Juan is a major travel hub in the Caribbean for travelers from the United States. There are regular commercial flights from most major cities, including Miami, New York City, Atlanta and Houston. If you cannot find a direct flight connection from your hometown, you may consider finding flights that route via one of these main travel hubs. In total, there are 29 airports in Puerto Rico, most of them hosting regional and domestic flights. Getting around the island is fairly easy. There is a metro rail system that serves the greater San Juan Metropolitan area. It is also relatively easy to hire a car to explore the island. Be aware that traffic can get pretty congested in urban areas.
