  • Perfect retreat to enjoy the beach, rainforest and everything in between!

    "My husband and I honeymooned for six nights in the Fajardo region, exploring the local culture, Luquillo Beach, El Yunque and nearby Culebra Island (via boat tour). We were appreciative of the breathtaking views from the rental as well as the care taken to furnish and decorate the interior with bright colors and appealing artwork. The kitchen was adequately stocked with appliances/cookware needed to prepare several meals during our stay. We also really enjoyed the natural sea breeze that flowed throughout the rental, keeping it cool enough during the day time so as not to miss the lack of air conditioning (the window unit in the bedroom kept the bedroom plenty cool). We had a rental car, and everything was conveniently located close by. Ralph's supermarket and other stores (for clothes, shoes, etc.) were about a 10-15 minute drive. Overall, we were very pleased with our rental. The only issue we had was the elevator. It was slow to arrive at the 23rd floor and we waited a bit on the ground level for the elevator to take us up. So just plan to wait a good few minutes for it before heading out, or when getting back from your day of adventure! Thank you Zoveida for a lovely stay!"

  • Marbella Club

    "Our condo at the Marbella Club was pleasant, plenty of room, had everything you would need, a nice condo. The beach was small but enough room to walk on. Unfortunately the palm trees obstruct the view of the beach. Had an issue of a air conditioner leak but that was quickly repaired. The condo owners made everything easy, and all of the staff at Marbella were helpful and friendly(especially Blanca). The whole complex is huge but easy to navigate. Nice restaurants at the plaza, and a good number of activities on the grounds. I would have given a 5 star rating but the mattress in the second bedroom really need to be replaced. After the third night, we awoke with a sore lower backs which lasted the rest of the stay. Her's wasn't a serious as mine but it really limited the activities I wanted to participate in. After arriving back home, soreness went away within a week so no doubt it was the mattress. I'll give a holla to the owner."

  • Our 1st Vacation Rental - Amazing morning views!

    "This summer as part of our family trip we decided to rent an apartment for the first time. We ended up in this wonderful gem! The apartment was spacious and comfortable (there were five of us). My mother had not been on the island in more than 50 years and having this inviting home as a place to relax from our whirlwind activity filled days was a Godsend. The condo has all the comforts of home, more so because we were able to step right out of the property to the beach. In the front closet there are beach chairs, cooler, umbrella and beach toys which we were able to use while on the beach. Waking up and sitting on the balcony at dawn was one of the most beautiful and tranquil moments of the day and a highlight of our memories. Jim is personable and communicated with us before, during and after our stay. My family unanimously agrees that we will be visiting again! After staying here no more hotel rooms for us. Thanks Jim!"

  • Excellent stay - would definitely come back to Casa de Pepito!

    "This was our first trip to Vieques and Casa de Pepito was the perfect choice for our little family (2 adults, 1 10-year-old girl). The house itself had everything we needed, was clean, comfortable, and well maintained, and the location was great...walking distance to all the restaurants and Esperanza beaches, and short Jeep rides to all the other beaches and sights on the island. Octavian and Catherine were both friendly and accommodating as we were planning our trip, and Barbara the caretaker picked us up at the airport and drove us back when it was time to go home, and gave us all kinds of helpful tips about navigating the island. Would definitely stay here 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.
