  • Another wonderful stay

    "This was our second stay at Magnolia House and it was once again fantastic! I am hesitant to let the secret out of the bag :) Magnolia House is walking distance to the Malecon where you can stroll, eat, drink and people watch! The house is incredibly comfortable with everything you need. We especially enjoyed sitting outside to read in the afternoon. This year we discovered the joys of snorkeling and there were splendid sights rights off the pier in Esperenza. You can spend your time here without a car easily or rent a car or scooter for easy outings to the beautiful beaches on the island. A special thanks, once again, to Joe and Mimi for making the trip extra special with their information and tips. Coqui Grill in Isabel II is fantastic and Tin Box has delicious oysters, fresh salads, and a great happy hour."

  • Amazing Home Away from Home!

    "We recently returned from an incredible week at Casa Mae. Our hosts were very accommodating and the house was just perfect. All communication was clear, professional, and prompt. The house has high quality finishes and all the comforts of home. The photos accurately portray the house and we were just delighted we picked Casa Mae. Rincon itself is a sweet little town and a great home base for our Puerto Rican vacation. Do yourself a favor and schedule a day trip to Sunset Snorkel & Bio-Bay at La Parguera with Rinconvactions.com. It was the highlight of the trip."

  • The view alone is worth the 5 stars!

    "This trip was the most relaxing & comfortable vacation I've ever had! We came for a Mother-Daughter vacation. Last time I stayed in El Conquistador, $300+ a night resort. While We had a great view there, & fancy air conditioned room, it paled in comparison to Hilltop. I would have slept in a tent on the HUGE veranda just for the AMAZING view! Second to the amazing views was the privacy between the two bedrooms. The second bedroom was an attached casita. It had its own entrance from the veranda. Lots of privacy! Perfect for two couples, parents wanting a little sanctuary to themselves, also my mom & I, She snores like a freight train. The beds are huge, enough for 3 lol, REALLY comfortable, with down pillows. Both rooms had full sized closets including plenty of hangers. The 2 bathrooms were clean, well decorated, plenty of towels & the main one had a deep tub (lots of storage too). In fact the whole apartment was well decorated; heavy wood carved furniture in every room. The kitchen has everything you might need and you aren't far from a grocery. In fact, you aren't far from anything. Centrally located; all the bays you can see from the veranda are the best beaches on the island, maybe 15min away. 4 were even voted top beaches in 2013 by Tripadvisor! On the other side, you can see Isabel Segunda (where the ferry docks). in the distance, on a clear day, you can see all the way to the main island & Culebra. Seriously! You have 360 degrees of unobstructed amazing views. Starting from the moment I woke up, I could see the ocean out my bedroom window. Then I'd take my morning coffee to the veranda and take in the view. Trade winds to cool you at night, beautiful views to wake up too... We expected to run down to the beaches, but we just spent the first few hours of the day on the veranda. -In full disclosure, the negatives (while few), were; really only room for one car to park, had hot showers 90% of the time, the only real problem was the wifi. It only worked along the back wall, so in my bedroom and on the couch. Lol While & will hopefully enjoy the sounds of the Coquis as you fall asleep, FYI you will hear dogs barking & roosters from all over the island. Still wouldn't keep me away from hilltop though! The animals are part of the charm of this island! Of course I have to mention Barry, he was extremely helpful and hospitable. He lives downstairs, but is very quiet, so no interference with your privacy. He will text if you need to communicate."

  • Wonderful Villa, Great Management, Beautiful Location!

    "Upon arrival we were met by Luis, who told us we would be in the penthouse (top floor, 3 bedroom unit with one bed/bath locked out). Luis gave us the tour and told us where to park (gated and covered). There were 2 boogie boards waiting in the unit for our 2 autistic boys. Muchas Gracias Xavier! The view of the beach and pool out the front was awesome and the side deck on this unit had a great view of El Yunque. Both Luis and Xavier answered any questions almost immediately by texts and were always helpful. Rio Mar is a great location, as the rainforest entrance is literally across the street (a rental car is a must). There are grocery stores,drug stores, restaurants, Walmart, etc. all within a short drive. Many good restaurants off site, but only a short drive. Some favorite restaurants were Boardriders in Loquillo, Richie's (great view, vicious bugs, good food, resort priced), Iguana pub at the golf course and the pub on the beach at the Wyndham. Having your own kitchen was an added convenience for a family with 4 kids. A day trip to San Juan is an easy drive on good roads. Old San Juan and El Morro are must sees. We rented wave runners right at the Wyndham beach (they have surf boards and other toys for rent as well). The surf was good for boogie boarding, but not too big to worry about our 7 and 10 year olds getting swept out to sea! The beach was pretty clean and quite deserted in the villa end. Even on July 4th weekend, the villas and resort were not overly crowded. Our children had the infinity pool to themselves much of the first three days. Overall, a great value and a nice location. I would recommend this property to a friend. The listing photos are accurate of the villa and the villa was clean. It did show some age and weather wear, as do most resorts of this age in the Caribbean. Just some rusted metal, etc. The pools were well kept and clean and we never felt unsafe, as there are security guards and a gate to get in the Wyndham property. Thanks Xavier for a great vacation villa!"

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.
