  • Felicidades Rincon

    "My two daughters and I had a great time for a week at Doc's in Rincon over the holidays 2013. Great place with the Lazy Parrot, Banana dang coffee shop and poolside La Familia pizza an easy walk away. The house was comfy and had great views and Cheo was very helpful. Every place Doc recommended was great from food to surf rentals. We especially enjoyed Casa Islena for breakfast and lunch (great subs) beside the sea, Calypso for mojito Monday and fish burritos, and Cofresi for la piratas. Surf was challenging for us 'rookies' but still fun and snorkeling at Steps beach was awesome. Met so many great people (many who knew Doc). We hope to come back someday. Felicidades."

  • Wonderful vacation experience

    "My new wife and I stayed at Beatrice's Coral Beach Apt in Isla Verde, PR for our honeymoon for 7 nights. We were very happy with our experience. The building is right on the beach, so just an elevator ride away. There is a nice, large community pool right before entering the beach area. A key card is required to access the Coral Beach property, so we always felt safe. We also felt safe on the beach and in the streets, as the area the condo is in seemed quite pleasant, and the people were friendly to tourists. I would recommend renting a car, as it paid for itself. We rented from Charlie Car Rental (within walking distance from the condo), and including gas we only paid around $200 for the week. It was well worth it, as we were able to drive to El Yunque Rainforest to explore and zip-line (just 45 minutes east), Luquillo Beach to relax (also about 45 min east), La Cueva del Indio (about 1 hr west...look it up -- best part of the trip for us -- gorgeous, although pictures won't do it justice!), Old San Juan (10 minutes), and other places. If you don't rent a car, Isla Verde is still enjoyable. Once you book with Beatrice, she provides a ton of information on places to see, eat, etc.; she was very helpful every step of the way. The condo itself was very pleasant. There was A/C, a nice bed, futon, 2 TVs, a nice kitchen, washer/dryer, and a decent wifi. Puerto Rico has a lot of beauty and good times to offer and Beatrice is very attentive and helpful."

  • Great Vacation

    "This was a great spot for me and my friends! We had 5 people staying in the condo and it couldn't have worked out better for us. The bed was comfortable, the beach was a block away and there was a pool downstairs. Also, the people were very friendly and helpful. We all felt very safe and there was a security guard on site the whole time, so our rental car was secure. Everything you could want was provided in the condo which really helped us pack light. It was also a convenient location for us to get pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. I would recommend this rental to anyone! Thanks for everything Ana!"

  • OUTSTANDING STAY--HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    "This was our daughter's senior trip and we stayed at Aquatika. We all loved Puerto Rico! Starting with J.C. (Juan Carlos), who was a great help and source of local information. He met us at the airport and we followed him in our rental car to the grocery store and then to Loiza. He showed us around and gave us many suggestions about where to eat and what to do. We also got many helpful ideas from the packet that the owner Jeff gave us plus the notebook that previous guests had filled out more helpful information. Aquatika is beautiful and quiet--at least quiet during the week days. Seems to be a bit more hopping on the weekends as many of the local PR folks come here to Aquatika on the weekends. But with all the pools and the beach front it was never too crowded. We ventured out to the rain forest--which we all loved--catamaran/snorkeling in Fajardo--which was totally awesome, and many other daily excursions. We also spent a few days just hanging out in the condo. It was really nice having separate bedrooms for the kids so we didn't have to be together all the time like you do at a hotel/resort room. We enjoyed the second floor tv room, and going outside on the balcony and either catching some sun, or napping in the hammock:) Overall it was a wonderful trip and we would highly recommend renting this condo in Aquatika. The owner Jeff and JC his local guide are great and made the whole trip a pleasure!! Thanks again J.C., Jeff, and to all the great locals that we met on the most awesome vacation yet."

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.
