  • Perfect Getaway

    "My husband and I stayed at this villa for a week in December and had a wonderful time. Angela was very nice and helpful and she answered all our questions. The villa was very nice, and exactly as pictured. It was very clean and the views were truly amazing. Most of the time we had the pools and hot tub to ourselves. Take a walk down the beach and you will find lots of sand dollars. We went to Richie's Cafe which has a very nice view. We also went to several restaurants right up the road from the villa. When you leave the resort, turn left on the main road and drive up the road about a mile and a 1/2. On the left hand side there are several very nice restaurants & a few shops located all together with an open type atmosphere. I can't remember the names of the restaurants, but one of them is famous for lobster. The food was very good and we would recommend it. We rented a car and went to Old San Juan, and the El Yunque National Rainforest. We would highly recommend both places. We did rent Kayaks and went to the Bioluminescent Bay. Maybe it was the night we went there, however, we weren't impressed at all. We only stayed in the area where you see the lights for about 10 minutes and we didn't see much at all. We moved our hands in the water a little bit and that is when we saw the lights. Although this was highly recommended I wouldn't waste the money. We had a wonderful time and would love to return and stay in the same villa, it was GREAT!!!"

  • Our stay in Rincon

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in Rincon and the place we stayed was perfect for us. The location of the home was so close to Sandy Beach and places to eat. We could just walk if we didn't feel like driving. The accommodations were very clean and supplied all that we needed for our week stay and the pool was heaven after a day on the beaches surfing. The AC in one of the rooms went out the first night and it was replaced right away. Thank you to The Parsons and the property manager for a very enjoyable stay and we hope to be back next year."

  • Great getaway

    "My husband and I rented at this location looking for a place outside the "busy" San Juan area. However, we still wanted to stay close enough to restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, the rain forest and Old San Juan to visit the forts. This location checked every box. We easily were able to navigate our way from our condo at Malibu Rentals to and from San Juan (~20-25 min) and to Old San Juan to visit the forts (~40min depending on traffic). We spent a half day at El Yunque Rainforest (~30 min drive depending on time of day, go early to beat the foot traffic!!). We also drove to Luquillo beach (great public beach, ~4$ day parking) only 15 min drive. Lastly, we drove to Fajardo on the eastern edge of Puerto Rico to catch a ferry to Isla de Culebra (this was a longer drive from the condo, maybe 50-60min.) Great all day adventure if you are up for leaving early for ~1hr drive and 45 min Ferry ride to the island to find isolated beaches and great snorkeling…make sure to check ferry times though and give yourself plenty of time to get there (we caught 9am ferry to the island and 5pm ferry back). The drive from San Juan to Malibu Condo Rentals does seem like you are going away from everything and entering a more remote area. For instance, there are horses and chickens on the road leading back to the entrance gate for Malibu Condos. This is what we liked about renting here. There was a sense of authenticity and tranquility about this location. And, despite being more remote and outside the typical tourist lodging, we felt very safe and the community is gated. There was also a super-walmart, walgreens, fast food, local restaurants and gas stations all within 10 minute drive, mostly located at Plaza Canovanas. This was important to us as we stayed for 5 days and cooked many of our own meals. We also enjoyed our days were we just stayed at the condo and either read a book on the spacious terrace, went to the pool, or walked to the private beach for the condo property. The pool is great and the private beach is nice for close access for a short walk on the beach or just to lie by the waves. The surf was pretty rough and while we got in the water we did not swim at the private beach. We found Luquillo beach much more suitable for water activities, which again is only about 15 min drive and is a beautiful long beach. The condo itself had everything you needed for an extended stay and was clean. A/C, internet, cooking items, large refrigerator, linens, towels."

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.
