  • The Right Fit Again....

    "This was our second time staying here, we rented the condo last August and came back this year in May. Once again, it was great. The view alone is worth the stay, the beach is right at your front door, friendly tenants, and it's pet friendly building, so our Yorkie enjoyed himself once again. We're very familiar with Isla Verde and San Juan, traveling to island every year. While we usually visit several restaurants, we ate at La Playita regularly. It's not even a block from the condo, sits right on the water, friendly staff, great food and you can't go wrong with a Coco Loco or the red Sangria. This side of the beach is less congested, only 2 hotels (Ritz and Courtyard Marriott) our Yorkie was able to stay on the beach all day rather than designated times. The other side of the beach offering parasailing, jet skiing and other water activities is easily accessible. There are several places to eat within walking distance, including a Waldrens. We adore Hebe, always available to answer any questions and a joy to work with. We will definitely stay here again, and again. We highly recommend it."

  • Wonderful Accomodations!

    "A group of friends and I traveled to Arecibo for the skydiving festival and this house was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The home is very secure with locked gates and 24/7 security cameras, so you never have to worry about safety. There's plenty of space to hangout in the communal areas or take some time for yourself in the bedrooms. The rooftop terrace was lovely -- they even cleaned the BBQ for us so we could enjoy rooftop food! Everything was very clean, very modern, and very beachy. Christina & William were wonderful hosts .. they even brought us a new batch of clean towels mid week so we didn't have to worry about washing them! They were on time for checkin & checkout, and made themselves available anytime we called. The driveway has room for about 5 or 6 cars comfortably which was perfect for our group. I'd highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in Arecibo, PR."

  • Just perfect!

    "The condo was very clean, had comfortable beds, and was in a secure, convenient location. I loved that we could just walk to a gorgeous beach instead of packing up all our gear for the day. We got a lot of use out of the pool, which was cleaned frequently. The complex is small, so there weren't a lot of people milling about. We all agreed that if we come back to PR, we definitely want to stay in this condo again. We liked eating at the Blue Iguana at the Fajardo Inn, but ate most of our meals in (kids are picky eaters!) The bio bay tour is very close, and we enjoyed hiking in El Yunke, taking family surfing lessons on Playa Fortuna, a catamaran sailing tour to Icacos (with snorkeling) and practicing our Spanish. The owners were very welcoming and courteous! Wish we hadn't had to leave...."

  • Great place.

    "Great place to stay. 5 minute walk to the beach. Living among the locals, not a resort. The apartment was even prettier in person. Would recommend getting a rental car while there to explore the island."

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.
