  • Stay at Peña Mar!

    "Peña Mar Ocean Club, and this condo in particular, was the perfect base for our vacation. Mohammad, the owner, promptly answered all our questions prior to our visit and met us at the airport and gave us a nice welcome gift we used every day. He was available by cell phone throughout our stay, but more on that later. Peña Mar is a 45 minute drive from San Juan, all on highways until the end. The complex has 24/7 gated security with a guard. We always felt safe. The condo is on the 3rd floor and is very clean and modern. There is a cooler for the beach, a washer and dryer, iron, basketball, 2 TVs and many beach towels. All the bedrooms are air conditioned and there are 2 ceiling fans in the common area. There is Wifi throughout - the modem died while we were there and Mohammad first took the time to call the cable company and troubleshoot the problem, then made arrangements of us to pick up a new modem. The main pool and gym is about a 1 minute walk away! Peña Mar is a very short drive from Seven Seas beach, the Bio Bay tours, ferry to Culebra, and several excellent restaurants such as Pasion por el Fogón, La Estacion, and Kasavista. Walmart and other large stores are on PR-3 about 10 minutes away by car. El Yunque is about 25 mins. El Conquistador, should you choose to go there, is only 5 mins away. Overall, this was the perfect place for our needs. We hope to return."

  • Studio Rental Feedback

    "Rental: Dec.26th – Dec.30th. This was our first experience staying at a location other than a hotel or resort. Evelyn, the owner, was prompt and helpful answering our questions from the time we booked the reservation until the end of our stay. She mailed us the keys to the studio and instructions with plenty of time prior to our departure which helped eliminate any stress. The studio looks exactly as the pictures shown on the website. The studio is conveniently and centrally located in the heart of Isla Verde. It is a short walking distance to basically everything: the beach, car rentals, restaurants, drycleaners, hotels, casinos, grocery store, Walgreens, etc. The studio was clean upon arrival and had the all the amenities listed on the website. The building is quiet, the people were polite and it has a 24 hours security guard which makes you feel safe and secure. We were mostly out of the studio during the day and most of the night, but did enjoy the wonderful ocean view in the mornings and evenings while getting ready to go out. The building doesn’t have parking, but we were able to park our rental car in front of the building and across the street at the Howard & Johnson Hotel parking facility for $15 per day. We were able to go in and out as many times as needed to for that price. The studio met our needs for our stay in San Juan but, would have liked for the studio to have a place to store our luggage. We will recommend this rental studio to others."

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.
