  • Another Awesome Stay - Love this location - Best Studio Rental!

    "I absolutely love staying at Mar Azul. Raquel and Bobby have a beautiful property and they keep it spotlessly clean. The landscaping is beautiful and everything about their setting makes for a great vacation. I just had my second stay in their upper studio apt. and I just love staying there. The breezes that blow through are heavenly. I cannot say enough good things about it! It has everything you need - a kitchenette with a toaster oven (came in handy for re heating the best pizza in Rincon - Mis Familias Pizza at the Lazy Parrot), a microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot, and they even supplied coffee and tea. Inside the apt. there is a table and chairs and a leather sofa. The bathroom has a nice walk in shower with a window for ventilation and natural light. The shower has great water pressure and hot water. The bed is comfortable and EVERYTHING is perfectly clean. They provided beach towels too. One of my favorite things about this apt. is the outdoor living space. They have the nicest covered outdoor patio with a wicker table and chairs, seating area, and ceiling fan. There are pretty potted plants and it is the ultimate space to relax and enjoy the tropical setting. Every day you will enjoy being serenaded by the sounds of the coqui (frog that makes a special sound) and other noises starting just before sunset and throughout the night. So peaceful and relaxing! Raquel and Bobby have a beautiful yard surrounding their home and apts. and everything is green and tropical. I enjoy the views looking out the windows and I know THERE IS NOT A BETTER PLACE TO STAY than at Mar Azul. It is my favorite and I highly recommend it. Make sure you rent a car so you can explore the area. Eat delicious thin crust pizza down the street at Mis Familias Pizza and also try the grilled Mahi Mahi at Shipwreck Bar and Grill."

  • Life is beautiful!!!

    "Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful condo for the week. This is the first time we rent a private vacation home, the experience with renting from Kevin is fantastic. I had a big group (Grandparents, kids and mid-aged), everyone loved this unit. It is so spacious, very tastefully decorated, the terrace is amazing, the beautiful view, the breeze from the ocean, the sound of bird... we spent hours up there relaxing after each day trip. Kevin is so wonderful, he wrote a very detailed email about where to shop, where to go and where to dine weeks before our scheduled vacation, so, we studied it like a 'bible' and had very well planned excursions once we arrived, hidden beach, touring Old San Juan, hiking and Zip lining in El Yunque, Kayaking at moonless night at Lagoon Grande, snorkeling in Palomino island... The highlight of vacation is visiting Palomino island. Kevin arranged a day pass ($150+Tax/group of 6) for us to take ferry from El Conquistador resort. We get there in early morning so we are able to secure several beach chairs under the shades. My two kids went to snorkeling all the way to that little islands of last scene of 'Pirates of Caribbean' taken, played chess like 1st episode of 'Harry Potter' and did Ping-Pong and mini golfing. The boy is disappointed that he is not old enough to drive jet ski alone and he said it is embarrassment that he has to ride with his mom and let me drive the jet ski. My daughter mostly hang out with her big brother and put a big hermit crab back into ocean, wow, saving life... Best of all, grand parents have a great day relaxing and enjoying the stunning view of ocean...The food from cafe is great and reasonably priced, the portion is really big. While we are enjoying the meal, my son is under ‘attack’ by a hungry aggressive rooster and almost lost his gigantic burger to the papa attacker as a meal for his spouse, the mama chick and her two baby chicks :-) :-)... Well, the day is end with paradise! We had a wonderful time in your villa and hope to come back sometime in the future!"

  • Spring Break Vacation

    "My family and I along with a family friend spent our Spring Break here. The apartment was just as advertised, clean and well-maintained. Jeff and Yvonne were very easy to work with. It was a plus to have beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler all at our disposal. Tip: shop Walmart just minutes down the road instead of the grocery store...much cheaper. Downfall: elevator had just gone out, something Jeff could not have foreseen. But it did give us our daily exercise."

  • Great base for exploring Puerto Rico!

    "Our family - husband, wife, daughter (14 yrs.), son (11 yrs.) - recently spent 6 nights at this condo. We had a great stay! The location was perfect for us...close enough that we could drive to the attractions we wanted to visit yet secluded enough that we felt we were truly getting away. The condo and grounds are very well maintained, and the gated access to the complex (with security guards) provided a nice sense of security. We had a rental car, so we made day trips to the sites we wanted to visit: Toro Verde Adventure Park (~1.5 hours), El Yunque Rain Forest (10 minutes), Luquillo Beach and Kiosks (10 minutes), Old San Juan (~30 minutes), Laguna Grande (~30 minutes). Mari was great before the trip. She answered all of my questions and was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She even mailed us tourism booklets and provided directions to the condo from the airport along with recommendations for restaurants and local grocery stores. The condo itself was very clean and is stocked with pretty much everything you need - pots/pans, beach toys and chairs, towels, and even detergent for the washing machine. Our kids especially loved using the boogie boards at the beach. Overall, this place was even better than advertised. A definite thumbs up!"

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.
