  • We all want to go back to Mi Macondo!

    "We spent our Easter break at Mi Macondo and loved every minute of it! The property is gorgeous and the views are unbelievable -- made us all forget the nasty weather we left behind. The house has every amenity you can think of so feeling "at home" was easy. All of the beds were super comfortable and the view when you wake up cannot be beat. Beach towels and chairs are provided which is super convenient. There is a tv but we NEVER used it -- truly a sign of a great vacation. WIFI was great for having to "check in" with reality! Breakfasts by the pool were heavenly and dinners under the stars (amazing stargazing!) were unforgettable. The location of the house is perfect -- easy to get either town -- and yet you feel private. Some days we saw more horses than people! Renting a 4x4 is a must as some of the best snorkeling is on very bumpy (lomo) roads -- but 100% worth it. I would recommend bringing your own snorkel gear as renting can be pricey for a big group - we used ours EVERY day. Make sure you hit the "farmers' market" about 5 minutes from the house -- great fruits and veggies. I'm still craving the arugula that we bought there! Esperanza is a fun place with great food options and even better people watching! Wynne and Liz are great hostesses - you spoiled us and and now re-entry back to Chicago has been very hard! How did we not know about this island for so long??? LOVED it and cannot wait to go back!"

  • Simple and sweet

    "The home is very simple but very relaxing. You can walk to the beach in minutes. Very conveniently located near El Yunque, Fajardo (snorkeling, ferry to Culebra, Bioluminescent Bay). The food Kiosk's at Luquillo Beach are great! The owners and Robert the maintenance person are very nice and responsive!! Would definitely consider coming back!"

  • Great Winter Escape!

    "We just returned home to the worst winter in New England for 10 years! We had the good luck of missing two entire weeks of it, snow storm after snow storm, while we enjoyed ourselves at Casa Soleada. This is our second consecutive February visiting Casa Soleada. We love the views, find the house comfortable in every way, and use it as an excellent base to travel about Eastern Puerto Rico. This year we explored Palmas Del Mar, one of Puerto Rico's finest resorts, which Casa Soleada looks down on from its amazing location. The resort offered us access to 15 restaurants and the beach; because the owner of Casa Soleada is a member there we were able to visit the lovely Beach Club complex using the provided guest passes. The resort is just a six-minute drive from the Casa, but no one in the resort had our amazing views and lovely breezes. Oh, to be back relaxing by the pool and soaking up the rays!"

  • Paradise Found

    "This is truly a paradise found. The pictures online simply dont do it justice. Yes the pictures are accurate, However, the reality is the property is more beautiful then the pictures. Literally 2 steps to the beach - your very own private beach. The unit is furnished and the staff go out of their way to make you feel ar home. Thank you for the groceries on sunday! Perfect location away from the madness of SMB but close enough to all parts of the island. the master bedroom bed is SOOOO comfortable. All the amenities provided. We had a wonderful time and WILL be back!!"

Caribbean Travel Tips

The Caribbean Sea and its islands are full of splendor and magic. Also known as the West Indies, the Caribbean has long been a popular destination for honeymooners as well as retirees looking for a getaway. There’s almost always good weather in the Caribbean, and its close proximity to the U.S. makes it an affordable and easy place to visit.

The Caribbean At a glance

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are surrounded by coral reefs and the bluest of waters. There are three islands to choose from, which are full of marine life. Not only can you swim with stingrays, but you can go diving with the most colorful fish that you’d only imagine existed in your dreams. The white sand beaches are postcard-perfect and include Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point and Point of Sand. Here, you can enjoy isolated lands and even pink sand at Point of Sand. If you want, you can choose from more than 200 scuba diving sites or hit the pier for a day of fishing. Looking for things to do outside of sitting on the beach all day? Take a tour of George Town, the capital city of the islands. You can also visit the Cayman Islands National Museum and learn more about the country’s culture. After a day full of fun, grab a meal at a local eatery and enjoy freshly caught fish or sit down for a sophisticated meal at an upscale restaurant. You can get a real taste of island cuisine with a bowl of conch chowder, which is a tomato-based soup comprised of sweet peppers, onions and salt pork or bacon.

Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the Caribbean’s most industrialized nations, and is also one of the most crowded due to tourists visiting the islands. You’ll find Hindustanis, Javanese, Lebanese, Africans and Creoles in Trinidad, while Tobago is more quiet and unspoiled. You haven’t done anything in Trinidad and Tobago until you’ve visited Maracas Bay and Turtle Beach. The beach didn’t get its name out of the blue, sunbathers enjoy sharing the sand with giant leatherback turtles and Maracas Bay offers clear waters near the capital.

Puerto Rico

Despite its smaller size, Puerto Rico is full of life and beauty. There are 4 million people that call the island home, and they are more than welcoming to visitors. You’ll find so much to do in Puerto Rico, including mountain hiking, a trip into rainforests and plenty of sun on its white sandy beaches. Since the island’s history dates back 500 years when it was still under Spanish rule, there’s plenty of history and museums to take in. In San Juan, you can visit three world-class museums before heading out for a night of shopping, dining and nightlife. Restaurants are plentiful in Puerto Rico, where you can enjoy stuffed crabs and chip-chip, a dish of clam-like shellfish with vegetables or ground meat. You should also try the fresh rum punch, which is flavored with locally produced Angostura Bitters.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has the pleasure of enjoying a year-round summer. There are white beaches, crystal clear waters and Spanish colonial history that dates back 500 years. With a visit here, you may find yourself hanging out with locals and backpackers from small fishing villages. The most popular destination in the Dominican is Punta Cana, where you can enjoy a plethora of sunshine. If you want to go for a dive, head to Bayahibe for a great view of shipwrecks just beneath the water’s surface. You’ll find some of the world’s finest cigars in the region near Santiago, as well as a good bottle of rum. Harrison’s in Puerto Plata has jewelry, and there are plenty of art galleries in Altos de Chavon. Grab a seat at Santo Domingo for fresh rock lobster or braised red snapper, or head to Puerto Plata for all the crayfish and grilled shrimp kabobs your stomach can handle.

Jamaica

There's more to Jamaica than just reggae and Rastafarians. It’s full of white sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, mountains, rainforest and coffee, as well as friendly locals. Of course, there’s diving and snorkelling that will take your through coral reefs, garden grottoes and drop-offs. You can even go for a leisurely swim at Doctor’s Cave Beach or overlook Montego Bay on the hilltop at Rose Hall Great House. Don’t leave the island without a package of Blue Mountain coffee or Jamaican rum. Visitors can find colorful artwork at the Contemporary Art Centre in Kingston or head to the Craft Market in Negril for handmade items. There’s also the Things Jamaican outlet with several locations throughout the island, including Montego Bay and Harmony Hall.
