  • Casa Caribe Del Mar keeps getting better

    "We are return guests all the way back from 2009, 2011, 2013. Every time we come back we see the new and updated wonderful changes the owner Sherry does to this little piece of paradise. Always new paint and linens. This time a remodeled master with such a comfy King size bed. Outdoor back yard lighting under the Palms is breathtaking at night. I have come to expect this from the owner as she makes sure every detail is perfect. Nothing can change the location which is the best. The beach is the best and secluded and absolutely beautiful. You will see a handful of people at most during your stay on this private beach. So much is updates but the important things stay the same like the original charm of this Caribe-Spanish beauty we have come to know as our home away from home. We so look forward to our return trips. This is our little piece of paradise too thanks to Sherry...So again thank you for allowing us the pleasure of enjoying this treasure with you. Gina and Family"

  • Awesome view of Desecheo Island and tres palmas sunset

    "La Niña was very comfortable with awesome views off the front porch. After a day of snorkeling or surfing the hammocks on the porch were perfect. Pepi was a wonderful host. He made sure we had everything we needed for our trip."

  • Beautiful spot off the beaten path!

    "My husband, our 3 year old son, my sister and her boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in March. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our group of 5. The huge outdoor deck offered so many options for lounging, eating, grilling and even napping...all with an absolutely stunning view of the water. The house had everything we needed and was in perfect condition when we arrived. Theresa's directions were spot on and it was the one place in PR that we actually were able to locate on our first try! The town is not much to speak of, but the beaches were spectacular and not crowded at all. We tried out Domes beach (to watch the surfers) and Steps beach for awesome snorkeling. And my husband tried surf lessons before deciding the sport was not for him! But honestly, we preferred the ease and privacy of the beach and water at the base of the property. Our son loved watching the crabs and other sea creatures and my sister loved the snorkeling. One word of warning, the street that the house is on is very narrow and the rental car place gave us a mini-van which made it very difficult to maneuver. Technically, you should be able to drive in a loop and not have to turn around, but we often found the street blocked and we had to execute a 10 point turn with the mini-van. so make sure to get a small car! Also, i'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 only because i made several e-mail inquiries regarding parking and a small cot-type bed for my son that went unanswered until I called Theresa (at which point she was very nice). Not sure why the e-mails went unanswered, but would recommend getting all your questioned answered in advance."

  • Perfect! So much better than a hotel!

    "A group of 3 friends and I stayed at Dulce Sueno for 10 days and everything about our stay and the house was great. It is extremely clean, well stocked, and the location and views are fantastic. The house is a little ways away from Esperanza, but for us it was perfect as we enjoyed the seclusion and is made for quieter nights and allowed us time to enjoy the breeze and views. Please note that a car IS absolutely necessary though as no amenities are within walking distance. For us this wasn't a problem. The house was large and easily accommodated 4 people. I would highly recommend it for a larger group (4-6 people) traveling to the island. Cheers!"

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.
