Recent Puerto Rico reviews

  • Beautiful views, clean condo, great value

    "We stayed in the penthouse condo for three nights. We had a group of 10, with five in this unit and five in a second condo two floors below. Ana, the property manager, is incredibly helpful and kind. She went above and beyond for us. The penthouse condo is spacious, very clean and had all the amenities we needed for our stay (including beach towels and beach chairs). There was enough seating and entertainment space for our entire group of 10 to be together in the penthouse for dinner. This building is blocks from the beach, within walking distance to great restaurants in Ocean Park, Condado and Isla Verde. As has been said in other reviews, the view from this condo is amazing, both during the day and at night. The value for this unit was great and the accommodations only enhanced our stay in San Juan."

  • Perfect family vacation

    "Twice now I’ve stayed at Alma Vista with my family and friends. We all enjoyed this vacation rental enormously! The typically Caribbean style house is spacious, clean, comfortable, and just beautiful. You’ll find a well-organized kitchen, good laundry facilities, really comfortable beds and there’s even a fascinating assortment of good reading material. Best of all is the huge balcony with a panoramic view of the ocean through a flowering tropical mango grove. It’s breathtaking in the early morning light and perfect for the spectacular sunsets every evening. Alma Vista is right in the village of Isabella Segunda but surrounded by greenery we felt private and protected. The location is just right for easy walks to shops, restaurants and local beaches then it’s a quick drive to the spectacular big beaches on the other side of the island. The house manager, Kikito, knows everything you need to know or find in Vieques. He’s always available, helpful and very friendly. We loved everything about Alma Vista. I’m afraid it’s spoiled us for any other kind of vacation."

  • Amazing getaway!!!. Perfect location

    "I am originally from Puerto Rico and visit the Island twice a year. I have stayed in numerous places around the island. I must say this is the best overall when you take location of the Villa, accommodations (Gorgeous place), and easy access to many beautiful sites within the island. El Yunke rainforest was so close that we were able to hike it just about every morning before heading to the beach. So many great restaurants withing short driving distance with amazing “comida criolla" food- ie. La Parilla. Luquillo beach, Los Kioskos, Fajardo, La Parquera , easy drive to the ferry that’ll take you to Culebra's Flamenco Beach and I could go on and on and again all these places are within easy access/drive from Rio Mar. The villa was amazing, a lot better than advertised. It is a spacious place with an amazing view. We soaked in the view every morning while having our coffee and breakfast- ah the best. The kitchen was perfect with everything you need to cook a great meal. I could go on and on about the villa which truly is a home away from home. The owner was so friendly and caring, we were received at the villa even late at night. The place was all ready for us to enjoy. Eva's(Owner) main goal was for us to enjoy our stay, she call me during the stay to be sure we were having fun and enjoying the place. We found our next destination!! Thank you Ah Almost forgot - The golf course is amazing. Yes,18 holes of golf by the ocean is a must do."

  • Amazing vacation!

    "This was our second time to Vieques and first time staying at Los Bohios. The property is stunning and fit 3 families perfectly. The pool was perfect for the little ones and the hot tub was a bonus! The view from the pool and living room was just beautiful. The property is very private so you don't need to worry about seeing or hearing any neighbors. The kids loved running around the huge yard and seeing the horses surrounding the property. We enjoyed grilling and playing board games at night. There are coolers, snorkel gear, beach chairs AND a beach tent for the kids in the laundry room to use on the beach. The only thing we didn't have were buckets and shovels for the kids, but we made due without. There are plenty of spices and left over condiments from previous guests ( we also left some for the next guests) which was nice. There is no AC but you really don't need it. All 3 bedrooms have ceiling fans (master has 4) which provided enough circulation and the cool breeze kept us comfortable at night. We didn't sleep with the doors open just for fear of getting bit by mosquitos. Unfortunately the heater on the pool wasn't working so we didn't swim at night but the hot tub was perfect. There is a house alarm which we used when we were out but felt very safe the entire time we were there. We ate out a few times in Esperanza but mostly cooked/grilled at the house. We previously stayed in Isabel and enjoyed Esperanza so much more. The strip of shops and restaurants is very cute and has a beautiful view of the ocean. There are also 3 markets close by to buy food and alcohol. The beaches here (in my opinion) are some of the most beautiful in the caribbean. Crystal clear water, white sand and no rocks or shells. Our favorites are Blue beach (la Chiva) and Pata Prieta. We found these to be the least crowded and had the calmest water. We were fortunate to have gone the week when there was no moon so we did the bioluminescent bay tour and really enjoyed it. You definitely need to rent a car to get around the island. The house is located on top of a hill and nothing is within walking distance. Colleen the property manager was very helpful with getting us info on car rentals, ferry times and flight info. We hope to come back again soon!"

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.
