  • Six-Pack from Minnesota

    "We are three couples in our sixties, from frozen Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. Every year or two, we take an excursion, find a rental, and expect a good time. We had a good time, and more, the first week of March, 2015. We found a beautiful condo, as described in the website. We found a location that was central to an island experience that was above expectation. We took the city bus to Old San Juan on two days (#21 or #53 are right there!) Excellent, affordable dining was within a short walk. We enjoyed breakfasts each day in the condo. A two hour walk on the beach each day would leave a salt residue on our eyeglasses. We can understand how the salt air affects so many surfaces. We rented a car for a day around El Yunque, and recommend it to anyone! We don’t consider ourselves “easy to please”, some things were not perfect. Wi-fi did not work the first few days we were there. The kitchen could use more measuring and mixing utensils. But as we settled into the place (and our vacation), we found that whatever we needed was provided."

  • Great vacation spot

    "We had a great time at Casa Campomar! The casa worked out real well for our family (of 4) surf vacation. The house was quiet and safe, very well equipped, and the AC was cold in the bedrooms. The owner and manager were super friendly and very accommodating. The house is an easy walk to Shacks beach, a short drive to other surfing beaches, and a convenient location to a grocery store and restaurants. Ola Lola's and a local empanada stand just around the corner were both awesome. Looking forward to a return trip! (Also want to check out the owner's new place in Pavones, Costa Rica!) Thanks to you both - great stay!"

  • Studio is cute

    "We recommend this place to any people looking for a place to stay near the beach and san juan. The place felt like any home we visited in pr. Very comfy, and simple. Everything was easy to find around the studio, grocery store super max, theres food places churches chicken, bk, tacobell, walgreens. Its gated in and out the house for safety. Sounds weird but this is normal in Puerto Rico. Otto has been available when ever I have texted him but we havent had the need to talk since everything is good. So far no complaints. Economical place, very lucky i found it."

  • Destination 30th Birthday

    "Working with Karen and her husband was a pure joy. I visit Puerto Rico every year around my birthday, and this year decided to rent a large house with some of my closest friends for my 30th birthday. Fifteen of us stayed in the house for 5 nights. Never once did we feel crowded. Everyone had a great time, utilizing the pool as well as the beaches located so near to the home. The proximity to old San Juan for tourism was also very convenient for my guests that had never been to PR...only a short cab ride. The backyard was conducive to a "family dinner" that we cooked in-house for all 15 people. We sat together, dined and had an amazing time. I highly recommend having the house stocked with food prior to arriving...it makes life that much easier. Karen was always available by phone if myself or my guests needed anything. I'm beyond pleased with the entire weekend we spent in this gorgeous home. If ever traveling with a large group again, I would not hesitate to rent this house again."

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.
