  • Casa Zen - Our home away from home!

    "This place has been an amazing experience, we traveled from AZ with our two children 11 and 9 and the location of this house is excellent. We walked to the beach daily, to the point that we spent two nights camping in the beach without any special gear or equipment. When we needed anything we walked to the house and got it! The house has everything you need in the kitchen, I was able to cook a couple of times. The outside shower was a clever idea to keep the sand in the house to a minimum. I definitely recommend this house and will be using this place as our home for future stays in Rincon. Thanks to Annette (the owner) for sharing such beautiful house with us :)"

  • Something for everyone in a private community!

    "We just enjoyed a multi-generation family vacation in this spacious condo. It felt like home from the second we stepped in. There are plenty of sleeping spaces in the 2 bedrooms. The smaller one has twin beds and trundles, so 4 fit comfortably in there. There is a large outdoor porch with 4 rockers, and a table with chairs. We loved having snacks out there and watching some ducks walk by. We enjoyed relaxing in the main pool and non-swimmers could sit in a large shaded gazebo with a ping-pong table and snack machines. The gazebo has plenty of comfortable seating. The ocean is out the back gate, and the owner has made arrangements with the next door Hyatt Hacienda del Mar to use their beach area. The condo has easy parking which is nice after battling traffic at some of the main tourist sites. There are 2 grocery stores; Amigo and Super Max, within a 10 minute drive. There is a selection of restaurants to try. I finally tried "Mofongo" at a close-by restaurant called Pika. It was nice to have a stash of beach towels, coolers and toys available to use. We drove to the standard sites; El Morro, El Yunque, Fajardo bio-luminescent bay, Camuy caves, Luquillo beach etc. The condo is conveniently located by highway 22, so it was an easy 'out' to get to the sites. We met residents of the condo community and everyone was friendly and helpful. I'd come back in a flash, and just relax at the condo, there are 3 pools and a beach. No need to leave!!"

  • Awesome Experience!

    "We had a fantastic four night stay at Pena Mar where we celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday. The condo is fantastic - looks exactly like the pictures. Felt very safe - the security staff was cordial. The condo is on the 5th level with the entry way on the 3rd level. Unfortunately the elevator did not work - but it was not a big deal for us. The wi-fi was a huge plus. The rooftop terrace was fantastic - with sea breeze making up for the lack of air-conditioning. The beach chairs, beach toys and the cooler came in very handy. Winston was very responsive to my emails and inquiries. We did the Bio-Bay and Aquafari Culebra with kayakingpuertorico.com - it was an awesome experience! Would highly recommend this condo - I will definitely stay here again!"

  • Our Only Regret....We Didnt Stay Longer

    "This could not have been the more perfect vacation getaway. The house is beautiful, the property incredibly well maintained and you cannot get a better view. The rooms are large, comfortably furnished and all the extras are more than I have ever experienced in previous vacation rentals. Well stocked kitchen, spices, oils, and personal items, shampoo, lotions, bug repellent, etc. This truly felt like a home away from home. But what really puts this rental over the top is Barbara and her staff. The amount of communication, detailed information and willingness to answer questions was incredible. They have a high standard for attention to detail and hospitality! Marcelle and WIlliam (the caretakers) were incredibly thorough in all the what, whys and hows to navigate Vieques as well as the property. And just in case you weren't listening they have provided helpful little notes around the house. We are looking forward to returning to Vieques and Casa del Marullo would be are only option! We only hope it is available the next time we decide to visit."

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.
