  • “Great spot!”

    "We loved our stay at Villa Pelicano! Alex was a wonderful host, and we were able to really relax in the countless hammocks, open air kitchen, and breathtaking views. It would be hard to find a more enchanting place on Culebra!"

  • Really great place to stay!

    "Great location--you've basically got your own private beach in Isla Verde. The picture shows your view from the balcony. Secure parking is located below the building. Also, it's a very convenient area with stores, restaurants, car rental agencies all within walking distance. The airport is a 5-minute drive away. The property owner, Zahatiel, was very kind and thoughtful. He picked us up & dropped us off at the airport, even though our flights were late! He showed us around the neighborhood, letting us know where the stores & restaurants were. The apartment is equipped with everything you need to have a great time on the beach: towels, chairs, umbrella, 2 coolers, even beach toys. We will stay here again next time we are in San Juan."

  • Simply amazing.

    "We just returned from our second trip to Vieques. Previously, we rented a different house, so this was our first time at Los Frutales. My husband and I were completely blown away. The house was incredible and Michele and Damien were excellent property managers! Everything went very smoothly even though we arrived over an hour early on our flight! We followed Michele and Damien up to the house and they gave us a great tour and basic lay of the land. The views from the property are jaw dropping and you have so much privacy!! The location of the house could not be better! You are a quick drive from both towns and the reserve. We loved the all the fruit trees - fresh mangoes! The chickens were a delight. We did not mind them at all in the mornings. When staying at a property among locals, guests should expect the true local experience! The W is for guests who want secluded, resort living. This house was stocked with every amenity you could think of. We cooked several times while there and everything was at our fingertips! I blistered my foot on the first day on the beach, and low and behold, band-aids were in the bathroom! The wifi was reliable the first day or two, but then became spotty. We were fine though because our Verizon phones worked just fine! Remember to adjust your roaming settings when you arrive on the islands! We will definitely stay at Los Frutales again. We loved it so much that after day one, we joked about canceling the other half of our trip and staying here the whole week instead of only 4 nights! We already miss the view at the pool and the amazing rooftop deck! Thank you so much Michele and Damien!!"

  • Trip of a Lifetime

    "Our party of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the property and its location on Puerto Rico! We were welcomed everywhere we went and spent our time with locals, not tourist areas. We can't wait to come back!"

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.
