  • Relaxed renter

    "The process for renting was easy and stress free. I stayed 8 days in this apartment and I felt like home. The 3 bedroom apartment is spacious and has everything you might need. I went with my mom and my daughter and we all had a great time. At night you can just open the windows and the breeze you get is great, no air condition needed. You can stay in the balcony for hours. It has many eating facilities close by! The owner has a Big Binder that has tons of information from traveling to eating out. I will definite consider renting here again."

  • Most charming and romantic rental we have ever encountered!

    "We just returned from a 7 night cruise out of San Juan that we supplemented with a two night stay in Old San Juan before setting sail. I found this property highly reviewed and was okay with the ladder and loft bedroom so booked it for my wife and I and having no idea what Old San Juan was like as this was our first visit to Puerto Rico. When we arrived at the airport it only cost around $20 to get to the this location. The Calle del Sol street was easy for the cabdriver to find and the instructions to get into the rental were spot on. We were welcomed with local music playing as we entered the property and a personal greeting on the chalkboard in the kitchen. The place was immaculately clean, modern yet traditional, and exceeded our expectations in every fashion. We walked down to the local market and grabbed a couple bottles of wine and hung out in the living room area with the large windows that open onto the cobblestone streets. They are high enough off the ground that you are looking down onto the street so it is not an awkward feature but a very welcomed one. To speak to the place itself, the air conditioner was cold for the sleeping area, the bathroom was comfortable with a large shower area, it had all the kitchen amenities you would need to stay even a week, but the best part of this rental is hands down the location. We were within short walking distance of every major Old San Juan attraction we found. We highly recommend stopping for breakfast/brunch/coffee at Hacienda Isabel which is literally on the same street around 8 doors down. Like our local rental it was full of charm and culture. At the end of our trip Felipe had stopped by and introduced himself. We told him we will definitely be back for a longer stay and to explore more of beautiful Old San Juan and called us a cab to take us to the pier to catch our Cruise Ship. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this place, it was the highlight of our entire vacation even the cruise that followed. Old San Juan is one of the most romantic places we have ever visited, the food is amazing, the night life is great, and the charm is unmatched. We will be back for 5-7 days one day in the future and will not hesitate to stay at this central location to all the city has to offer."

  • Super Fun Family Trip!

    "We enjoyed a five day holiday at this condo right on the ocean! Seven of us traveled down to Isabela for our first family surf trip! The condo wax centrally located and an extremely short ride to the best surfing spots like; Secret Spot, Middles, Jobos, Wilderness and Rincon. We were in walking distance to some great seafood spots and entertainment. The condo was a perfect set up for 7 people. We found the open floor plan great for cooking and entertaining. The view from the terrace made it a great place to hang out on. We were fortunate enough to have been invited to a Christmas Party Pig Roast, given by the condo association. The residents couldn't have been nicer and the good was awesome! All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Puerto Rico Paradise and hope to stay there again in the near future! Thank you Myra for everything !"

  • Casa Esmeralda

    "We loved this property!!!!!! We rented another property in Arroyo that did not work out it was such a horrible experience. We called the owner of this property and told him our dilemma he was so accommodating. Not only did he rent the property The views are amazing and this house has everything you will need. Bring your own beach towels and make sure you use water shoes for the beach. The house was spotless and well stocked. There are two showers/bathrooms which is great when you have two teenagers. There is a fresh fruit vendor right next door. Try eating at Kevins or Musafas for some delicious PR food. This is a very safe and nice neighborhood. Thank you so much we will be visiting here again soon!"

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.
