Recent Puerto Rico reviews

  • Loved our stay at Aquatika

    "We loved our recent visit to Puerto Rico and Aquatika! The owner Rolando was wonderful to work with and I would recommend this unit to anyone. The unit: Clean, spacious, as good or better than photos. There were plenty of towels, well-stocked kitchen, boogie boards and pool toys. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was nice, and the rest of the apartment had a good cross-breeze when the windows were opened up. Loved that roof terrace!!! This unit is towards the front of the complex not too far from the beach. Comfortable beds and the extra half bath upstairs was a plus. Aquatika: Very quiet, not many people around during the week, with only a few more on Sunday. Maintenance crew seemed to rake the beach and clean the pools every morning. Landscaping on ground was lovely. Kiddie pool with slide and fountains was only turned on on Sunday the week we were there. Many times we had a pool or hot tub all to ourselves, other times we shared with other renters, several of whom we return visitors to Aquatika. I would love to be a return visitor sometime!! Also, security seemed very tight - our group of 4 women felt very safe here. The beach at Aquatika was nice, a couple of days it was fairly calm and a couple of days it was a little rougher and we could attempt to boogie board. Loiza: We did not really spend any time in Loiza, but we found the location to be a good home base for visiting Old San Juan, Pinones, Luquillo, and Fajardo. Loiza is only 10 minutes or so off Highway 3 where you will find lots of chains (Wal-mart, Walgreens, Burger King, etc). We we very happy with our choice to stay just east of San Juan."

  • Great place to relax and enjoy nature!

    "My family and I frequent Puerto Rico so we've done all the sights. Our goal was to have a serene time of rest and relaxation and this home delivered! The view is awe-inspiring! We saw whales everyday and looked forward to counting as many iguanas as we could in the forest canopy. The one thing we did do is ride at Tropical Trailrides nearby and I could see my family ride by from the house! The house is neat and well-equiped. The pool was well used by my children and we also loved grilling in the gazebo house. Thank you Matt for opening your home to us, it was a vacation to remember."

  • Great Spot!

    "Had a great time here! The apartment was very clean and had a huge wrap around deck that was very nice with the trade winds. Great location that is very quiet and close to some great breakfast and pizza (across the street) James, the owner, was great and very helpful with our trip. Perfect spot for those looking for a quiet and tropical getaway!"

  • Great stay last Feb 2015

    "Here is info about the Wyndham complex, since Carlos' villa has already been reviewed and is beautiful : this is a huge complex in the eastern coast of PR. You will need a car to drive the easy 45' from the airport to get here. Within the complex there are separate "clusters" of villas, this one is in "cluster II" and to get there you need to get past the complex security an then the cluster security, we felt very safe at all times. The cluster has its own pool that you can see in the pictures and its own (a little run down) playground, both easily walkable from the villa. To get to the beach or the hotel you could walk, but there are no sidewalks so we drove Carlos' golf cart or the car to get to the beach or to the hotel facilities. There is another pool just next to the beach that belongs to the cluster. The pools are nice but not as nice as the one in the hotel. The beach is small, the water in turquoise and warm, the sand is brown in color, not your beautiful white sand beach. there are no umbrellas but you can get shade from the palm trees, and there's free beach chairs. The hotel facilities are within the complex, about 10' drive from the villa. We had no issue at all using the hotel pool or beach, there was nobody asking for credentials. The hotel pool is nicer, and has a kiddie pool, although the water was not very warm. There is another playground next to the hotel pool, and a Tiki bar that sales beer and cocktails made out of boxed juice instead of actual fruit (go figure), there is another poolside restaurant that serves decent but not very sophisticated food. The hotel beach is, in my opinion, a little nicer than the cluster's beach, and there are some more activities, like jet-ski rental. The hotel itself looks ok, a little run down, it could use a face lift. Of all the restaurants listed, the only 2 that were open for dinner were Marbella which is a very expensive buffet with mediocre food, and Shimas which serves puerto rican-asian fusion food and it was better. the hotel also has a small casino, and a couple bars. If you drive your car to the hotel you will have to leave it in the parking lot which cost a little more than $3 per/h. We typically used the golf cart which is free, and can be either parked at the garage, or next to the playground which is closer to the hotel beach and pool. If you like to play golf this place is paradise, the golf courts are dreamy and you have a great view from Carlos' home. We took golf lessons."

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.
