  • I fell in love with Vieques

    "We thoroughly enjoy our stay on Vieques. It was so much more (and so much more beautiful) than we imagined. Pura Vida was a perfect size home for us- the kids (which are more like young adults- 15 & 22) loved having their own space- to read, listen to their music and do their social-media thing. (YES! free Wifi) The house came with plenty of board games & movies which we made very good use of after long days on the beach. The house had everything we needed, it was comfortable & roomy & the location was perfect. We learned our way around quickly with Joe & Mimi's help (They were really awesome) and we enjoyed so many great beaches and some FANTASTIC meals. After a few mornings, even the Roosters didn't seem so bad :) (side note; if you're a light sleeper, I suggest ear plugs but that goes for ANYWHERE on the island....) The house had a very powerful AC system that was recently put in. It was so powerful that we really didnt need it the entire night... Most nights we would wake up freezing at 2 or 3am and shut it off completely. The house is within walking distance to El Malecon which is filled with GREAT places to eat & drink. The house was also 3 short blocks from a delicious town bakery that sold the most amazing, piping hot, bread and pastries!! We'd walk over to the bakery in the early morning (he closes by noon) and we'd make some great breakfast sandwiches before we would head out. The kitchen is equip with everything you can possibly need. Coffee Maker, Blenders.. They also supply beach chairs, beach towels and for families with small children; plenty of sand toys and things of that sort. Much to my surprise there was a washer and dryer on the back porch which made keeping the clothes fresh and dry a lot easier. The small yard also has a clothes line to dry off damp clothing that might not necessarily need to be washed. There are many wonderful and secluded beaches to visit on Vieques and most of the time, there will be very few people sharing the beach with you. I cant speak enough about the food. WOW!! Consistently good no matter where you went. Having the SUV was a MUST!!!!!! Yes, you can walk to places from the house but you'd be doing yourself an injustice not having a car there and venturing out. Driving is easy and you quickly learn that there are only 3 main roads.... You cant go wrong! I can go on and on about Pura Vida & Vieques but I will just end it by saying; We WILL BE BACK!!!!!!"

  • Great Stay

    "This was our 1st private rental and we were a little nervous. But Alexandra & Poco were very accommodating. They even mailed us the keys as our flight arrival was 3:00am. The apartment was the perfect size for my husband and I. Most importantly it was CLEAN! They even took time to text us recommendations of places to eat and explore. Restaurants are close and the beach (not crowded) was a short walk down the street. Everything you need to enjoy the beach is in the closet(chairs, cooler, games...) Old San Juan is only a 15 min drive or bus ride. This is a great stay if you are looking to save money (to spend on enjoying the island). Finally Alexandra made us feel like we could contact them for anything...they were only a call or text away. We WOULD certainly stay here again!"

  • "Warning, family vacation in progress"

    "My father passed away in Dec. and we talked about taking a trip to Puerto Rico. My whole family got together and Diane graced us with a beautiful place to stay! The house was more than we imagined. The decor was amazing, creating this wonderful ambience for our family to gather. Diane was a great hostess and gave us some incredible tips! Diane also took a few family photos, which again was one of the many ways she showed her hospitality and generosity. The views and location were outstanding. We would highly recommend this "casita". With a view. Thanks again Diane!"

  • Fun in the sun!

    "We have enjoyed vacationing in Rincon several times. This home was extremely comfortable and well represented in the photos. The pool area was spacious and perfect for a barbeque with local family members. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare just about anything you would want. We found a great fresh fish connection at the empanadilla stand located on Steps beach...beautiful, fresh red snapper for a very reasonable price. Bedding was comfortable and abundant. The air conditioning was much appreciated.. although my husband was born and raised in PR... he can't take the heat anymore lol! Parking was readily available on the gated property. This was much appreciated and a rare commodity on the tight and narrow streets of Rincon. The only issue we encountered was sporadic connectivity with the internet. Luis (the property manager) was always available and attended to this problem but it seemed to be an overall connection issue in the area. This is a problem we have encountered all over Rincon. Would recommend this charming, comfortable home for a relaxing visit, we only regret we could only stay for 6 wonderful days... thanks Jay for allowing us the pleasure of staying in your lovely home! We would also recommend using the airport in Aquadilla... only 30 minutes away and much less congested than San Juan. The beaches in Rincon are lovely for grabbing some rays but can be rocky. Would suggest Crash Boat beach in Aquadilla for swimming. Steps Beach has fantastic snorkeling but can be treacherous if the water is choppy as there are also a lot of rocks....still in love with Rincon!!!!!"

Puerto Rico Travel Tips

The Caribbean is one of the loveliest places for a relaxing vacation where you can unplug, spend time being at ease outdoors and simply enjoy the company of your travel companions. And Puerto Rico is a top spot for all of that, with its tropical terrain, fascinating history and exciting culture on this 100-mile-long island of the Greater Antilles.

The options for exploring nature in Puerto Rico are vast. From sunny, sandy beaches to lush rainforests, mountains, coral reefs and more, you can spend your days hiking exhilarating trails, marveling at the local wildlife or laying on the the shore with a good book and tasty beverage. No matter what, you have your choice of outdoor activities, so you can try them all if the mood suits you.

Cultural activities abound here as well. There a variety of dining options, many specializing in a local favorite - suckling pig - and music blasting as locals and visitors alike dance the night away. Museums offer a glimpse into the island's past, its heritage and art, which can also be seen through the various examples of architecture around Puerto Rico.

Things to Do in Puerto Rico

- Museum of Art of Puerto Rico: a visit to the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico is a must. Housed in a Neoclassical building from the 1920s, which was formerly the San Juan Municipal Hospital, the museum of one of the largest in the Caribbean. Inside you'll find collections dating back to the 17th century. In the east wing, a five-story stained-glass window by local artist Eric Tabales dominates the space and is a truly a sight to behold. In 1996, a wing designed by architects Otto Reyes and Luis Gutierrez was added. The museum also features a 400-seat theater and large atrium, and outside you can stroll through a lovely garden with a variety of native plants. If you work up an appetite wandering around, the museum also houses a restaurant.

- Jobos Beach: This is one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico for surfing because of the excellent waves on a low-depth area. Whether you're hoping to learn how to hang 10 or just want to relax on the sand, Jobos Beach is a well-kept, clean spot to do just that. Toss a Frisbee, build sandcastle?s or take turns burying each under under the sand, then wash it all off with a jump into the water.

- Aguadilla Ice Skating Arena: Something you might not expect to find in the tropics is an ice skating rink, but in Puerto Rico you can hit the ice at Aguadilla Ice Skating Arena. It's the only rink to be found in the Caribbean, and could be just the thing too cool off after a day in the sun. It's chilly in here, so dress appropriately, then lace up those skates and take a lap. The arena is open every day and certainly provides a unique experience for those visiting Puerto Rico.

- Casa Blanca Museum: If you're looking for the oldest museum in Puerto Rico, you've found it at Casa Blanca Museum, which is thought to be of great historic value. It's a two-bedroom home with a kitchen, foyer, dining room, throne room and oratorio. As you move through the museum you'll see the rooms decorated to represent the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Outside, you can explore the museum's beautiful garden with its wonderfully smelling orchard.

- Camuy River Cave Park: If the adventure lovers of the group are looking for a unique outdoor experience, The Camuy River Cave Park is it. Visitors can explore the natural limestone cave system and underground waterways. Here you'll find more than 10 miles of subterranean beauty with 220 caves and 17 different entrances. The system is located in the 268-acre park and is one of the most popular attractions in Puerto Rico. Some favorite spots here include Tri-Towns Sinkhole, Spiral Cave and Sinkhole, and the Clara Cave and Empalme Sinkhole, which you can see on a professional tour.

- Culebra National Wildlife Refuge: If you're hoping to see some of the natural scenery and local wildlife in Puerto Rico, look no further than the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge. More than 50,000 seabirds from 13 different species call this place home, as do three species of sea turtles. It's a lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities and relax. Plan an exhilarating hike around the area as you watch for native animals to come out of hiding.

- Casa del Rey: Learn about the island's history with a visit to Casa del Rey - the King's House. The structure is the oldest in Dorado and served as an inn first in 1823, then housing for personnel from the Spanish Government and later as regional military headquarters. In 1848, it was purchased and converted into a home. Casa del Rey has been modified once again and restored into a museum where you can learn about Puerto Rican culture, see examples of antique furniture and learn about the history of the region.
