Recent Puerto Rico reviews

  • Wonderful Beachfront Bungalow

    "We had a wonderful stay at this bungalow. The walls open to a large screened-in patio that overlooks a great beach. We slept with the walls open and woke each morning to the sound of waves crashing and a nice sea-breeze. The bungalow had everything we needed for a week long stay. There's a grocery store near the town just a short drive away. Most of the restaurants we went to were in the town on the other side of the island, in Esperanza. I would recommend renting a vehicle, but it's a beautiful drive."

  • Very Good Accommodations

    "Chalk up another successful VRBO rental. Ricardo and property manager were helpful and responsive; unit was better than advertised--new furniture that I'm sure will soon appear in Ricardo's pictures of the unit; great location, easy walk to dining, beach and easy in/out traveling around by car. Do not hesitate to stay here."

  • Fantastic owner, even better location, wonderful condo - our family of 4 LOVED it

    "All the detailed reviews helped me choose this condo, so I wanted to pay it forward. My family and I (including 2 kids, 14 and 3) had a sublime spring break vacation in Puerto Rico, and having this condo as our home base was wonderful. As others have said, Ita is an incredibly kind, caring, and responsive owner. Her niece, Linda, is also a delight to communicate with - they answered all my questions before arrival promptly and were happy to accommodate our late-arriving flight. Ita even came out to the corner as we made our way from the airport to guide us into the secure underground parking garage. This was after 11 p.m. on a Thursday night. She could not have been more delightful. It takes about 2 minutes to walk from the condo to Condado beach. This was a boon as we needed to return "home" for bathroom breaks for the 3-yr-old but it didn't mean having to cut our time at the beach short - we just turned around and went right back. The waves are strong, so it's not a swimming beach (lots of experienced body surfers, though) but my kids loved bracing themselves against the waves and building sand castles. The condo itself is light, airy, spacious, beautifully (and functionally) decorated, and it is incredibly well-stocked. We found everything we needed - tons of beach towels, laundry detergent, a soft-sided cooler that was perfect for bringing our frozen water bottles to the beach or the rainforest. The well-appointed kitchen had all the appliances and pots/pans I needed to make a couple of dinners as well as all of our breakfasts. Ita supplied bottled water as well as a Brita water pitcher, and even stocked 2 kinds of milk for the kids before we arrived. We also appreciated the bottle of wine and the chocolates she provided, and we availed ourselves of the roll of quarters to catch the bus to/from Old San Juan. We used our car for excursions farther afield: day trips to Fajardo with its calm beaches and El Yunque. We all slept well - the beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms' air-conditioning works VERY well (we often turned it off and just opened the windows to catch the breeze). The blackout shades do a good job of minimizing the morning light. There are flat screen TVs in 3 rooms but we never turned them on - too much to do, day and night! The location right along Ashford Ave. meant that we could walk to drinks/dinner/ice cream. Very low-stress. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly and hope to 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.
