  • Great stay at Casa Bonita

    "We enjoyed our relaxing stat at Casa Bonita. It's description was just what we we were looking for. The covered patio was a joy for one rainy day. We had everything we need to prepare some full meals. The rooms were nice and clean, well maintained and comfortable. It was just a short walk down the beach for a local restaurant/bar, located right on the beach. The manager of the property Allison was very friendly and helpful for any questions we had (restaurants, things to do). She directed us to a coffee plantation, which we had on our list of things we wanted to do. It was sandrafarms.com. We visited with the owner Israel Gonzalez his wife Sandra was not there at the time. He took us in his home and shared stories and coffee. It was a very personal tour of there farm. It was quite a drive to get there, but we felt it was worth the trip. We took long walks on the beaches everyday. The beaches were very clean and not crowded. We found a spot walking south on the beach that sold fresh fish by local fishermen. You need to go between noon and 2 PM to find them. It is the area were there are several fishing boats pulled up on the beach (three to six boats). Our stay and area was not like a resort area, but a quiet neighborhood and enjoyable. Great place for two to three couples or a family.d"

  • 5 Star Plus!

    "This condo is absolutely fantastic; the pictures you see in the listing are totally accurate. My husband and I stayed 3 nights and I can't say enough good things about it. It was a very last minute booking and because I didn't have a verified pay pal account, it took some extra work on David's part to accommodate us. Fortunately for us, he's a very nice guy and he went above and beyond to make it happen for us. (I've since gotten a verified pay pal account and I would highly recommend it as a way to book VRBO rentals). The condo is very quiet, yet close to some great beaches, as well as several good restaurants and grocery stores. It is beautifully furnished and well equipped; complete with coffee and condiments in the kitchen, and chairs and big towels for the pool and beach. In fact the only things you really need to bring are your clothes and what you're cooking for dinner. Everything else is already there! It doesn't have wifi, but there is a strong cell signal and a big flat screen TV with a huge selection of both classic and recent DVD releases. To sit and have a glass of wine and watch the sun go down in the evening was heaven. The sunsets are spectacular. And because the bi-fold french doors open so wide, the balcony becomes an extension of the living room. I have no hesitation in recommending this listing. It was our favourite stay in all of Puerto Rico. We were sorry to leave and hope to be able to return again soon."

  • Family Friendly

    "We arrived to Puerto Rico on the 7/14. We made our way to the gated security, provided our ID's and were greeted with smiles, gate opener, house key & parking info. Made our way up the stairs to the Villa. Master bedroom was prfect, bed was comfy and the Air Conditioning worked really well! We also had our own bathroom, which made getting ready in the morning a piece of cake with our 12 and 17 year olds.The kids bunked together in the room with 2 twin beds. Night 1 we went to downtown San Juan which was about 20 minutes away. Everyone was so friendly and the views are amazing! The second day we went exploring the fort and hit the beach "Playa de Luquillo" for live Caribbean lobster meal from the 1st kiosk "La Parilla" And on the way home we stopped by the store "amigo" to pick up some steaks, clams and ingredients for salsa and ceviche. Having our own private terrace was amazing! It came complete with a hammock, water faucet, tables, chairs & bbq grill! The next morning my sister, her husband and their 3 year old daughter joined us. They took the last bedroom and all slept comfy in their bed. The beds were soft, plenty of pillows and blankets, and of course the AC was working well the entire time in all rooms! The following days we hit the local beach's, escambre, siete Mares (great for kids snorkeling, you don’t even need goggles – we seen so many fishes just through the clear water) we took a drive to Rincon where the waves were stronger (about 2 hours by car) and the kids enjoyed surfing and watched baby turtles hatching in the sand! Rincon is definitely a different pace of life from the usually down town San Juan, slightly different food- better in my opinion and super-fast service compared to the 1-2 hour dinner experiences we had in San Juan. We hit the rainforest one day, go during the week because weekends are nutts and there is NO parking- literally no parking! The Camuy River Cave Park was fun and we learned some cool things $4 -$6 to enter. The last day we booked an excursion to Culebra. There are 3 options to get there; ferry, boat, small plane. The ferry dock is about an hour away from the villa, which was perfect! The villa is a great location for everything fun to do in PR! PLUS there's a drive thru Starbucks down the street! Bring plenty of bug spray, it's an island so no avoiding them! I have to say, having the fridge, microwave, stove, washer dryer and private villa made all the difference! 2 thumbs up, highly recommended for families!!!"

  • should have stayed longer

    "We have vacationed at various places on Puerto Rico a few times. My only regret as far staying at this place is that we should have stayed all three weeks at Mark’s condo that we were in Puerto Rico instead of just two weeks in February, 2014. It’s a great place, morning sun, great air on the hill (never used the AC), nice view and a 4 minute walk down to Sandy Beach where you can walk for miles, just swim or watch the surfing. This part of Rincon is north of the town center. Steep hills, great views and tight roads. Driving takes a day or two to get used to. Mark’s condo is comfortable, clean and efficient. Just what you want for relaxation. This neighborhood has no chain restaurants, no chain hotels and the highest building is 4 stories. Its low key, occupied by a population best described as a cross between younger surfers and aged, former Dead Heads who can only think about surfing. A nice, unpretentious mix. This is an English speaking area of the island unlike most areas outside of San Juan. So you don’t have to embarrass yourself, like I tend to do with my Spanglish. The town center itself is 10 minutes away, south, by car. Two grocery stores, Alberts and Econoco (Route 115), have everything you need. Saturday morning is a farmers market in the square. Fresh fruits and local produce are at road side stands. K-Mart and all the chain stores are less than 30 minutes away in Mayaguez. Restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the condo? Yes, and some really good ones. We didn’t get to all of them. A few sampled and appreciated are Ode to the Elephant, Pool Bar, and Saltaire, new at Casa Verde. The Pool Bar was visited more than once for salads and quality sushi and tempura (no, really!), and burgers. Check a web site for others. There are some good places within a 10 minute drive. Beverages on the upper deck at the Tamboo Inn on Sandy Beach are highly recommended. We watched whales breaching right off shore one day. We would recommend a morning drive and take an hour or two, roundtrip, up route 412 from downtown to the cell towers. You can see for miles. Day trips? The Los Morrillos lighthouse and beach (in Cabo Rojo, a US Fish and Wildlife site) and salt flats and the dry forest in Guanica on the southwest corner of the island. Or not, and just enjoy the beaches down the hill from Mark’s place. Mark was fantastic in responding to questions and helpful hints. Very professional."

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.
