  • Location, location, location.....and security

    "We just spent a month in Dell's apartment at the Racquet Club in Isla Verde. Everything he promised about his apartment was true---it is just steps to the the most beautiful beach in Isla Verde/San Juan area. Second, the security in this building is top notch! Three keys to get into the apartment, an electronic key fob to open all gates and doors into the building, a security guard in the lobby. Dell makes it easy by mailing the keys to you at home so you arrive with them in hand. And it's in an upscale neighborhood with lots of Carolina police cruising in cars, motorcycles, bikes, and Segways. Beach (public but with limited entrances, mostly from apartment buildings and hotels) felt so safe every night we took long walks in the dark. Good washer and dryer on each floor in building, operated with a card you refill on machine in lobby. Pool area has outdoor shower for washing sand off feet after beach. Dell has thought everything you'd need on the beach. Ocean is so gentle at this beach that we could swim laps in it. We joined health club for month at Intercontinental Hotel two buildings down the beach. Easy walk to huge supermarket (Dell even has a cart for this) and two Walgreen's. Charlie's Car Rental a block away makes day trips around island easy. Apartment is perfect size for a couple, but would be pretty tight for a second adult couple on the fold-out. One or two small children would be OK. Dell has lots of beach towels, and second sink outside full bathroom is nice. Only caveat---Isla Verde is noisy: with 3 bars in the bottom of this building, lots of partiers on sidewalks and cars with mega bass cruising, garbage pick-up and construction at neighboring apt. buildings starts early in the morning, and you're a block from busy Isla Verde Ave. Don't expect to sleep with the sliding doors open hearing only the waves and the surf. We gave in the second night, closed the doors and put on AC for white noise, then slept peacefully. Dell has a nice big room fan that helps. But that's Puerto Rico: it is urban, noisy, vibrant, and fun!!"

  • Great proximity to every activity!

    "My husband and I took our 4 children-20,18,15,12 to the Riley's place for 2 weeks. It was an awesome vacation! We liked being able to walk to the beach everyday! The waves were the biggest we've ever been in! Yet, small enough to play in. We surfed, did 2 hikes at the rainforest, kayaked the bio-bay, visited Old San Juan, and snorkeled at Tamarindo beach on the island of Culebra. Alana and her mother Bobbie, who lives next door were very helpful and hospitable."

  • A Villa above all others - literally !

    "This villa is excellent for many reasons, not the least of which is its location high on a hillside overlooking other villas below, part of the golf course, the tennis center off to the left , the ocean and the enchanting image of Vieques Island rising from the distant horizon. Spectacular views! The villa has three decks, but the two that overlook the view to the ocean will soon become your favorite places to hang out in this three level villa. A note on that : if stairs are an issue for you, this might not be the best place. That aside, the villa has what you will need for a pleasant stay; in addition to nicely decorated and spacious. Palmas del Mar is a nice drive 1 hour SE from San Juan. A lovely BIG development of many gated sub-developments, it is quite a nice asset for eastern PR. The development has 2 pro-designed golf courses, a huge tennis complex, a private Beach Club with pools, restaurant, and a great stretch of beach for walking. The pool in the villa complex at Palmanova Village is uncrowded and sits perched on yet another spectacular view. A short walk to the nearby Palmas Plaza gives you a small grocery store for the basic supplies, but also several small restaurants. Two are must-trys and highly regarded: La Pura Vida and a great Mexican place with great tacos and burritos - and oh yes, delicious Margaritas. Near the original Marina nearby are 3 great restaurants owned by an island celebrity chef. Be sure to try one, or all three places by Chez Daniel. Avoid eating at the Yacht Club unless you hear they have changed their restaurant management : our only disappointment during our stay. While walking the beach be sure to save time for some food and refreshments at the Bohio Bistro right on the sand. A great place to hang out to take in all the beauty that surrounds you at every glance. At the villa you can safely sleep with your windows open as there are no flying insects of any sort, and you can hear the rolling ocean waves in the distance, and until about midnight you will be serenaded by the melodious chirping of the national PR icon: the Coqui tree frog. You will be enchanted, and like we, vow to return to PR, and this great villa, for another stay. A short drive away is the Yunque National Rainforest - a must see if you like nature and hiking, in particular. Seniors: Your US National Park Service lifetime Senior Pass will get you in free (along with all the historic sites in Old San Juan walled city). Enjoy !"

  • Family vacation

    "Amazing! If you are going to rent in aquatika you must rent from cathy and yamil. They were so helpful from the minute we arrived in PR. They met us at the car rental and we followed them to aquatika. They were also available throughout our stay to answer any questions or trip ideas that we had. The rental was clean and they provided us with toys for my children to play with at aquatika. Best vacation ever! Highly recommend!"

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.
