  • Incredible....

    "The Quinta Jabali was an incredible experience and perfect for our honeymoon. The views are spectacular, the gardens are immaculate, and pool is the best I have ever seen. This house has, without a doubt, some of the best views on the island. Michael and Joey were incredibly helpful. This is a great private spot for a romantic getaway. You can spend the day on at the house and enjoy the views or take a quick 5 minute drive to Esperanza and enjoy the bars and restaurants. We also were only 10 minutes away from the Hix Island House where we took the best yoga class we have ever attended. While much of our trip was cloudy and rainy (we went during rainy season), we did not let it get us down. We still got great tans sitting on the beautiful, albeit overcast, beaches, enjoyed the bars and restaurants, did yoga, and watched the storms roll across the Caribbean from the covered patio of the Quinta Jabali. I could not imagine a better place to have been in the rain. Of course, rain is a risk that one takes booking travel during the rainy season, and I believe we had an unusual amount of rain and clouds during our stay. If you consider travelling anywhere in PR or the Caribbean during the rainy season, I suggest increasing the length of your stay to increase the likelihood of sunshine. We are all very fortunate that Michael shares his amazing home with others. He keeps an incredible journal on the coffee table giving guests tips about the island and the history of his house. If you choose to stay here, please treat his home with respect so he continues to let all of us enjoy this amazing treasure."

  • A Special Place to Enjoy 25th Anniversary

    "My wife and I really enjoyed staying here because of the beautiful views at sunrise, throughout the day, and at sunset. It was more secluded than a lot of the options and provided a special sense on just the two of us in this amazing environment. Having lived only in the US midwest, knew nothing about marine life but we thoroughly enjoyed all of the days of snorkeling, especially at Carlos Rosario. My wife especially enjoyed relaxing on the beaches. We would hike to a beach like Brava or Resaca and be the sole spectators of the amazing beauty. Culebra has a "community" culture that was a refreshing complement to the beautiful surroundings. Not being a major tourist center in the Caribbean, it retains the blessing of locally-owned businesses that we really appreciated. If you are seeking a high-end vacation with homogeneous and pristine facilities then perhaps another island is the choice for you. The house was pleasant and our hosts were very kind and informative about the island. Whenever a need arose, they quickly found a solution. There were nice windows with screens to let in a cool breeze. The bed was comfortable, including memory foam or some similar material. Basic appliances and a grill were helpful for us to prepare an occasional romantic home dinner. The weather was nice there as usual. Time slowed down!"

  • Second time...even better!!!

    "This is our second time in this property and the experience was even better. Spacious, modern, tastefully decorated, clean, well taken care off, everything you need for everything, towels, beach chairs, coolers, breathtaking views specially during full moon nights, complete kitchen apliances, and the roof deck with pool...the picture just says it all. It has 3 great rooms and an additional, basically full apartment in the "basement", with small kitchen, another bathroom and balcony. It has a lot of personality, very cosy, can be romantic or family oriented. Mercedes, the property manager, and Guido, the owner, are very friendly, flexible and responsive. We had a problem with one of the air conditioner units and the situation was fixed the same day. If you want to be sure of everything, dont look anymore, this is your property for a great family or group vacation. We plan to stay again next year!!!"

  • ¡QUÉ BONITO!

    "“Beautiful” sums up our three weeks at this condo, and reflects our stay at many levels—the island itself with all of its diversity; the clean, sandy beach in front of the condo; the breath-taking view from the patio where we had coffee and wine; the ideal condo location with respect to historical and recreational sites as well as to close-by grocery stores, restaurants, and car rentals; and last but not least, the condo itself and Gaby, the gracious and helpful owner. This was a family vacation for 3 families, each coming one week to be with their grandparent. The three represented generations all voted it their favorite vacation yet! Beautiful, right?"

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.
