  • Bachelor Party Weekend

    "We just spent a long weekend in San Juan at the 8 Atlantic Place (Ocean Park) property for a bachelor party. The location is wonderful and truly just steps away from the beach. There is a front gate, which locks as well as locks on the apartment doors. The added benefit of street clothes security outside on the street contributed further to our own sense of security. The property is about a 10-15 minute taxi from Old San Juan and the more tourist-geared parts of San Juan. Being one-step removed from that space let us relax and get away from the heavier foot traffic and bustle of tourism. Taxi rides should be on a per person system, and we rarely paid more than $3-4 per passenger. Be sure to specify “Ocean Park," as well. In terms of rooms, we slept 7 people very comfortably between the upstairs apartment and the Studio; in fact, 2-3 more people could have fit just as easily. Each bedroom comes with A/C, so nights sleeping are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and the ample dishes and cups made eating much easier. Beach and bath towels both provided. Booking and working with Adam was always professional, efficient, and clear. He was extremely friendly in person also, offering several suggestions of places to check out and making himself available via text should we have any questions. To check out, we simply followed the clearly spelled out procedure, hung our keys near the door and let him know. Very easy. Not only will I strongly recommend this property and it’s associated spaces to anyone (bachelor parties, family get away, etc.), but I will also be staying there on any future trips to San Juan—and after this first trip I’m sure that there will be several. Many thanks to Adam and all of the staff at Aqua4U for making this trip so memorable. Oh, and if you go, be sure to check out Kasalta Bakery just down the street. This little gem is not to be missed. How helpful was the AQUA4U call and on-line sales service? : Exceptional How was the AQUA4U apartment cleanliness? : Exceptional How was the overall comfort of your AQUA4U apartment? : Exceptional"

    "We stayed here for a week and this apartment is fantastic. Very comfortable and beautiful. A short walk to the beach, pools surrounding the villa, and the level of tranquility is unbelievable. We are definitely returning. I highly recommend this vacation spot!"

  • Everything we dreamed

    "Between the beach and the pool, we didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. Our grandchildren could not get enough of the water and the sand. The house is spacious and gracious, but the best part is the roofed veranda and pool and walled garden, where we ate all of our meals and enjoyed just talking. We had been to San Juan before but never Rincon. It is rural Puerto Rico. A wonderful and busy little town from the 1950s. The nights are filled with tropical sounds of tiny frogs. Early morning in the distance roosters crowing and an occasional dog. Modernization is also present. Rincon Escape has a good wi-fi and my laptop worked fine. We had two big adventures. Snorkeling at Steps Beach - discovering fabulous corals. And several of us tried scuba diving -- you don't have to be experienced just adventuresome. We are already planning a return."

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.
