Mar Chiquita

Car: Necessary

Mar Chiquita Beach (or the little sea) is one of the wonders of Puerto Rico, a half-moon-shaped piece of ocean that cuts through an opening on a stretch of rocks that separates the ocean from land. Located in the north central part of Puerto Rico, Manati offers a great location for day trips.

The immediate neighborhood is country side with beaches and green areas. The residents are second homes, retired people and some still on the grind.

Relax and enjoy Mar Chiquita and its adjoining secluded beaches with warm 80°F clear water, just within a short two-minute walk from the apartment. You can walk on the rocks (very carefully!) to do some shore fishing or just to enjoy the ocean. Los Tubos Beach and Laguna Tortuguero is a five-minute drive east on Road 686. Take your time to sun bathe and walk the sandy beaches, take a dip in the ocean for a swim, or surf, it’s all yours to enjoy!

Nearby Hacienda La Esperanza and its 2,000 plus acres along the ocean is owned and operated by the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico. You can find further information about nearby beaches searching for Hacienda La Esperanza, La Poza de Las Mujeres and Cueva de Las Golondrinas and Fideicomiso de Conservacion. For more information Google Hacienda La Esperanza, Manati, Puerto Rico.

Visit the local bakery and convenience store Santa Teresa. Ask for the local baguette “pan de Manteca” or “pan sobao” baked daily.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Mar Chiquita is a special place for Cuca. She is a Mar Chiquita native and Arturo is a forty-year-plus adoptee. The location has special meaning for Cuca because her grandfather owned property around Mar Chiquita including where the building sits today.

Why Tierras Nuevas Poniente, Manatí, Puerto Rico:
Our headline says it all; Ocean view, quiet, charming and affordable. All the apartments have the same spacious layout, two bedrooms, one bathroom living, room and kitchen with eating area, clean and at an affordable price. PLEASE NOTE: We have been advertising in Home Away since 2009 for all apartments. Now, you can conveniently select which apartment is available directly on Home Away. The reviews you will see in the Apt. 101 advertisement reflects the experience of guests for all apartments.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Mar Chiquita is located on the north central part of the island, away from the tourist areas. The location makes it very convenient as you can visit Old San Juan, and the rain forest. Travel through the winding mountain roads across the island to visit the locations under “Description” all that in no more than two-hour drive.
