Recent Puerto Rico reviews

  • Great in all respects

    "First, Deb was a true pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly (despite my accidental double booking of the condo on vrbo). The condo was perfect for the long weekend (4 days) for 2 of us visiting friends in Rincon. The terrace is a real draw and we used it fully (our Rincon friends loved it). The location is very convenient--short ride into the center of town and the Sandy Beach area and even Mayaguez if you need to scratch a gambling itch at one of the 2 small casinos there. The beach at the bottom of the street is literally a 1 minute walk and is quite decent and we used it all 4 days--especially awesome was walking into the water still in my running shorts immediately after a very hot and sweaty run. I liked Sandy Beach area a bit more though. Suggestion: when leaving the driveway, it is easier to drive through the El Coche parking lot as visibility from the top of the driveway is not great. Great value, great place."

  • Tremendous

    "Tremendous apartment, great location within walking distant of everything in Old San Juan including a wonderful private beach. The unit is more than advertised. Very smooth transaction and deposit refunded within 48 hours as promised. Margarita was so helpful with plenty of wonderful suggestions. Also the unit is right next door to Palmas restaurant and bar where the food is authentic and the owner Javier and his staff insures everyone feels at home."

  • Something for Everyone Eenjoy

    "A sigh of relief came over all as we approached the front gate knowing that our choice in stay was even better than the brochure. From the private beach to all five pools, satisfaction was on our faces the entire time. Cathy and Yamil made sure, that if we had any concerns or questions, that they were there to help. The rooms were spacious along with the patio and adjoining family room. Up to date appliances made us feel as if we never left home. I recommend, as I already have to my closest of friends and family, this two floor condo. A true gem. Thank you Cathy and Yamil for opening your home to us. The Quinones Family."

  • Excellent apartment with beautiful views

    "For a start, we have had a wonderful week in Cabo Rojo. Communication with the owner was very nice, the apartment is big en clean and has good beds, showers en absolutely everything you need! We really enjoined the kayaks! We knew there was no wifi, but we really missed it. Especially now MH17 (Dutch aircraft was shot down by Oekraine rebels) and we wanted more information. We were a little less happy with the location. Beach in front could only be used to enter with the kayak, and july is not the best month to see birds and wildlife and we preferred the more green parts of the island. But thats just a matter of taste and we knew about the dry bit from the start. Overall a very nice stay. PS there is a wonderful walk just on the left side of the watchtower! You have to pass a closed gate (so not easy to find or access) but beautiful there."

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.
