  • Great Rental for Families!!

    "We were in P.R. for a family reunion, and were able to find 2 Rentals owned by the same owner, needless to say the two homes were next door to each other. The owner, Robert, was in town during the week of our stay and was readily available to assist if there were any issues. Robert was very amicable and provided some suggestions for places to eat and great activites to do. Both homes were spacious and very comfortable! We had 3 couples, and 3 children in the rental, and never felt overcrowded!! Would definitely recommend this rental home in Palmas del Mar, and would rent again. Thanks Robert!!"

  • We never wanted to leave

    "This condo was excellent. If anything, the description falls short of the reality. My partner and I stayed here for seven nights. The condo is clean and perfectly stocked, and the location is as beautiful as you can dream up. First, the location--it's on Isla Verde, which is one of the San Juan beaches. It's close to Old San Juan and Pinones, and has just about everything you could want, from casinos to resorts to food, and even a Walgreens that sells everything, including rum, within walking distance, so you could have a great stay without a car. It is on the beach, and the beach here is less crowded than Condado or Ocean Park, the two beaches closer to San Juan. The sand was clean and the water incredibly clear, with some gentle waves most days. There were jet ski rentals further up the beach, but they are kept separate from the swimming. It was a beautiful location--we even saw a couple of iguanas around the common areas. In the bigger picture, it was just moments from a main highway that could take you to any other part of the island, so it's a good base to explore from. We caught the Vieques ferry, climbed Toro Negro, and watched a sunset in Aquadilla, all using the condo as our base. And there is a 24 hour car rental directly across the street, in case you want to rent a car at two in the morning. The condo itself is immaculate. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen very functional and well stocked on dishes and utensils, including blenders and salad spinners. The shower was immaculate, and was the strongest I've found on the island. The towels provided were of great quality. And the view was stunning. The picture can't quite capture it. We spent a lot of time just standing on the balcony staring out to sea, or down at the beach. There was Internet and television. The condo was even decorated well, and had lots of pamphlets and guides on stuff to do. There is a lot of talk about security on Puerto Rico, but there were no concerns here. The condo had security for the building and the parking garage, and we never felt concerned. The owners were excellent communicators, and made everything easy, too. I'd easily recommend this place."

  • Fabulous!

    "First of all the owners were very easy to contact which made the whole rental process a breeze. As soon as we booked we were sent maps and packets of all kinds of info about the Palmas community and the island. And their condo concierge Rosanna was so helpful the entire time we stayed. This was an absolutely beautiful, first-class condo. All amenities you could think of were included. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had every appliance you would want on vacation to make you feel at home. The view over the ocean was breathtaking and we enjoyed coffee in the mornings watching the waves roll in. The resort itself was great. You wouldn't have to leave if you didn't want to. Groceries, restaurants, tennis, golf and other activities all within the Palmas community. The pools were great too. Very well maintained and clean and comfortable. A great and relaxing vacation! The only thing we were a little disappointed with was the fact that the beach right outside the condo was full of seaweed. Apparently it is a seasonal thing. We had to walk about five minutes to get to another beach which was great so it ended up not being all that big of a deal."

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.
