  • Beautiful apartment in a convenient location

    "This is a beautiful apartment and the views are amazing. You can see El Yunque from the front door and the beach from the balcony. The views and the cross ventilation from the front to the back of the apartment are the best features. The apartment has many of the amenities you will need including bed linens, towels, a kitchen with an electrical stove, coffeemaker, and all the utensils, pots and pans you need. Though you can't access wireless internet in the apartment, you can access wireless in the library downstairs. I'm actually glad we couldn't access wireless in the apartment because it helped us disconnect. And if we really need to go online for work or what have you, we could just go downstairs. The location was great. You have a parking lot which gives you peace of mind. You have a bank right outside the lot and a Walgreens and Amigos supermarket across the highway. You are close to Fajardo, the Kiosks, El Yunque, and 30 min. drive to San Juan. The beach that you see from the apartment is also really good. Mercedes is a great host. She is friendly, responsive, and flexible. It was absolutely easy booking, paying, and staying at this location. Next time I visit Puerto Rico, I'll for sure be booking this place again."

  • Always a pleasure

    "This is our second visit to Vieques and our second stay at Journeys End. We always have a large group and this year we rented 4 homes with a total of about 35 people. This home allows the whole group to have dinner and visit either upstairs or in the outside area next to the pool. We have the best gatherings here at this home. The drive to the beaches is very easy...both the caribbean beaches or the Atlantic side of the island. All the amenities are fantastic and all the bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned. The owners have added upgrades to the kitchen since our last visit and also an outside bath and shower next to the pool. Highly recommend this home and have had wonderful memories here!!"

  • Ocean Villas at Wyndham Rio Mar EXCELLENT

    "The villa was on the 6th floor of the building. The first thing I noticed were the views. We had the golf course and Ocean directly in front of us, and El Yunque at the back of the property. It's a great layout, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. We were 4 adults and 4 young kids. We had access to the resort pools as well as our own pool. Beach access was incredible. The concierge service was responsive and polite. They even recommended tour guides that were excellent to work with. There is a washer dryer in the unit. We were very happy being at the unit, because it was comfortable and beautiful. We were minutes from El Yunque, excellent local food, and one of the Bioluminescent bays in Puerto Rico. Having a grocery store in addition to restaurants nearby was incredibly helpful and convenient. If you are traveling with a large group or a family with young kids, this is where you want to stay."

  • Great family rental!

    "My family and I (husband, 7-year-old and 1-year-old) just got back from our seven day stay in this villa for our family vacation. We LOVED it! It was spacious, centrally-located (we spent our time in Luquillo, El Yunque, San Juan and Dorado Beach), and well-appointed. Tons of clean towels and three full bathrooms! They even had a baby crib and high chair which made traveling SO MUCH EASIER. The patio was a nice touch for relaxing after the kids were asleep. The pool and beach in the complex were gorgeous and although this villa does NOT guarantee you access to the Wyndham resort pool, we parked in the club lot and walked and spent two full days there where our older son enjoyed the water slide and we posted up on lounge chairs and relaxed with no problem. Jorge and his wife were so wonderful and gave us a tour of the place complete with ice cold beers when we arrived. We definitely recommend this place and next time we'll bring more friends and family with us!"

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.
