  • Nice home on the beach in Punta Santiago, Humacao

    "If you are looking for a 5-star resort with pampering and room service, this is not for you. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation with home on the beach and a taste of the local island culture than look no further. Located on the end of a quiet road this home is well equipped with everything you will need. If not, than a supermarket and gas station are within a 5 minute walk and a Walmart a 5 minute drive along with many food and shopping options. The neighbors are very friendly. Eva, across the street, has lived there for 50+ years and says everyone in the neighborhood are her family and crime is not an issue. We had a small group of 6 and had a small wedding on the beach in front of the home. Room in home many more and is well equipped with kids toys for the beach. We strongly recommend doing a trip to Calebra. We went with East Island Excursions and went to Flamenco Beach (rated top 5 beach in world by Travel Channel). El Yunque is also close by. Can't wait to come again!"

  • Absolutely Amazing - total luxury

    "Our stay at Villa de Paradis was everything we hoped it would be. The villa is nicely appointed and has high-end finishes and furnishings. It was spacious and accommodated our family well. It is even better than the pictures. It was an easy place to stay and relax. Being on the W Resort property was great for the security, restaurants (great food and service), cafe, & other amenities. Estela, the owner was always responsive to our emails and answered our questions as well as gave us recommendations for places to go for shopping (Buen Provecho -amazing) & restaurants. The property managers were very responsive, helpful and nice. Everyone in our family loved watching our daily visit from the horses and seeing brand new fouls play and be with their mothers. The beach below the property was difficult to get to but once there we had an amazing time exploring the tidal pools and snorkeling and it was incredibly private. We had so much fun spending our days in the sun and enjoying the beauty that Vieques offers. We enjoyed the pool as well, especially the kids. There are a few things that I want to mention to others to have a heads up. Unfortunately, we didn't find the formal path to the larger, less rocky beach until our last day. This path is just a few houses toward the end of the road. We wish we had known about it earlier so we could have explored and enjoyed that beach as well. It would have been great to have a 'what you need to know' guide at the house to orient new visitors to the house and immediate surrounding area. We also were able to connect to the house WiFi but could never get an actual internet connection. Many of us had limited or no cellular service on the island so having active WiFi would have been nice but we never had an actual internet connection. So for those that this is important (I actually benefited from being not connected as it encouraged me to stay connected to my family and surroundings without distraction), you may want to get confirmation that the internet connection will be active, not just an active router. Given my limited cellular service while staying at the house, I wasn't able to contact the owner to resolve the problem and honestly didn't want to waste time dealing with it. I did contact the property managers but they couldn't help resolve it. It wasn't a big deal but frustrating as we were expecting internet access. We loved our stay here and are already planning our next visit."

  • A Magical, Intoxicating Place

    "This was the first trip my girlfriend and I have made to Vieques after many years of talking about going. We like to vacation in places a bit of the grid in beautiful natural settings. Last year we vacationed on Isla Mujeres off the Yucatan coast. Vieques was everything we had imagined and more. Navigating our jeep to find new beaches made every day feel like an adventure and we never stopped wondering at yet another beautiful, virtually deserted beach. It didn’t take us long to fall into the rhythm of island life. We also loved that the magnificent horses roamed free on the island along with various other species. Really hard to believe this island was so abused by the US military for so many years. And 360Vieques is amazingly beautiful home base. It is designed for you to spend as much time out-of-doors as possible. The various decks, the beautiful pool, the views from the roof with those intoxicating breezes- sigh – all made for a memorable experience. Both the design of the house and its physical location are really great. Besides sleeping, we spent very little time indoors. And even with sleeping, waking up to the amazing vista looking out to Caribbean made the start of every day breathtaking. Everything is made easy for the guests and we felt quite at home in no time. It's really hard to come up with suggested improvements. Possibly having wifi, although not having access probably helped our stress levels and kept us outside more of the time. The representation on the website is very accurate but the pictures really don’t capture the full experience. How do you capture in pictures the beautiful, warm intoxicating breezes that were a constant presence, the magnificent night sky, the changing lightscape from morning to dusk? The property managers Annette and Dennis were perfect hosts. Annette picked us up at our car rental and gave us an orientation to the island along with her favorite spots to dine, and Dennis had the unfortunate task of taking us to drop off our car rental before heading to our flight but not before talking about his island life. We'll definitely be back."

  • Wonderful condo, not for walkers

    "We stayed in the lovely home of Luisa and Homero from 2/11-2/17/15. There were 6 of us – grandparents, parents and teenaged children – and we found the space to be extremely comfortable. The apartment itself couldn’t be more tastefully decorated or more perfectly appointed. Everything is provided and at your fingertips. We were so grateful not to have to worry about bringing or buying dry goods and bath products; we were surprised and pleased to find that our hosts provided us with everything from napkins and paper towels to umbrellas and beach chairs as well… even a welcome bottle of wine! The unit and the complex were exactly what we’d hoped for and Luisa and Homero couldn't have been more gracious. It should be noted that Fajardo is not a town that can be visited without a car, and the complex of Pena Mar itself requires a car as well. It is located high on a hill, which, while providing lovely views from the gracious balcony and master bedroom, makes it difficult if not impossible to stroll. This is probably not a destination for walkers, although everything from beaches to the Vieques and Culebra ferries and many restaurants, stores and conveniences are within a 10-minute drive."

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.
