  • Beautiful, quiet, well-equipped condo

    "This condo at Bosque del Mar was perfect for my family (2 parents plus 2 college student children)! It is a clean, comfortable, well-equipped oceanfront condo in a very quiet location just a few steps to a nearly deserted beach which is perfect for walking or wading. The condo was as pictured on the listing (or even better!) and had everything we needed. The condo complex is clean and modern and also has a pool and tennis court which looked very nice. There was a guard at the gated entrance and patrolling the grounds of the condo complex, so we felt very secure. Roberto was easy to communicate with, very helpful during the reservation process, and even checked in with us during the stay to make sure everything was going well. Our favorite part of the condo was the view of the ocean from any of the three decks, and we spent each morning enjoying the view of the ocean through the palms, the sound of the waves, and the pleasant ocean breeze. We really appreciated all the equipment that was available to us at the condo (beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, surf/boogie boards, BBQ grill, beach towels). When we got to the condo, Roberto had even provided a basket of goodies to welcome us! The location is convenient, just a few minutes drive from Highway 3 and from El Yunque Rainforest and the Luquillo Kioscos. Our favorite activities in the area were zip-lining and hiking in the rainforest, taking a snorkeling cruise to Culebra, and an electric boat tour of the bioluminescent bay, Laguna Grande. We highly recommend these activities and Roberto's condo."

  • Ready to go back

    "My husband and I celebrated our 50th anniversary with a family trip to Puerto Rico. This lovely home was perfect for our family vacation. It was in the perfect location, very clean and provided with everything we needed for our large family of 14. We were 7 adults and 7 children (ages 5 to 72 ) It's location on a beautiful Beach very close to town but far enough away that you get that sense of being away from it all. The beach is something off a postcard - palm trees, sunsets, etc.... and you usually have it all to yourself! We spent part of each day swimming, body surfing and snorkeling. The house is bigger than we expected. Each bedroom is a decent size as are both bathrooms, but it is the yard and patio areas that provided more than enough seating for all. We cooked or BBQed every day and all you will need is right there for you. The fenced in yard is perfect for small children and you could walk out of the yard and onto the beach. There is and outside bathroom and shower perfect for cleaning up after a swim. We loved the house! The owner Nanda is friendly and helpful, and she made the rental process convenient and efficient. Her repersentative Yevette in Aguada was available at any time to answer questions and welcome us. The resident cat, Nickolai is no trouble and he watches over the property and you are his welcome guests. You are in luck if stay in this appealing and restful home"

  • wonderful villas

    "we rented both villa 4 and villa 3 upper for a week. Both were wonderful with great kitchens and everything you'd need. Beach access from villa 4 was terrific and we spent most of our time on the outdoor patio of villa 4 playing on the beach and in the ocean. Quick access into town and shopping including the grocery store. One of our air conditioners quit working and the on-site manager was there immediately with a crew and got it fixed quickly. The only suggestion for the property owners.....the balcony bedroom closest to the ocean has a bathroom facing the entry doors with no bathroom door. This was a huge privacy issue for us and I'd suggest you put some type of door or curtain on this bathroom."

  • Will return!

    "Eduardo was great; quick to respond, full of great recommendations with a cute, clean place. Safe neighbourhood, away from the hotels yet a very small walk to the beach, supermarket and local taverns! The towels and cooler being provided are a fabulous bonus to basic cooking supplies, coffee and drinkable tap water available. We walked everywhere but had a car for the last half of the trip for touring the island and parking is free, straight in front of the house. Next time in Puerto Rico, and there will be a next time, we will stay here!"

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.
