About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Local activities include swimming, snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving, para-sailing, surfing and sunset cruises. Lessons are always available for the inexperienced. Depending on the time of year whales and dolphins may be seen migrating off the coast. About a mile north of the condo, the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet creating superb waves for surfing. Rincon is famous for its surfing and for the Rincon Triathlon. The triathlon transition from swimming to biking is directly across from the condo so you can watch from your own balcony.
Within a 30 minute drive you can find a water park. Driving a little further there are caves to explore, cave tubing, the Mayaguez zoo, the rain forest, and the world's largest radio-telescope. San Juan is 2 hrs away and the rain forest is 2 1/2 hrs away. JetBlue has flights directly from Orlando(MCO) and New York (JFK)to Aguadilla (BQN). Continental and Spirit also have flights to Auguadilla. A marine reserve is about 0.5 miles north from the condo, it has the best Elkhorn Coral close to an island anywhere in the world. Take a diving/snorkeling boat to Desecheo, 12 miles from shore and discover visibility to 50+ feet, 365 days a year.
Within 500 yards of the condo are grocery stores, pharmacies, bakeries, (the emergency room) and everything you will need to make this 1100 square foot apartment feel like home. There are also plenty of local restaurants and shops when you feel like exploring. Whether English or Spanish is your first language you won't have problems communicating. Most people are bilingual and everyone is very friendly. There is no crime. You can walk almost everywhere you want to go but a rental car is recommended. Rincon is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. Stay 7 nights or more and save the cleaning fee!

VRBO Bear stayed here:
Our stay was amazing! The owner was communicative at all times and readily available for any questions. He provided some great recommendations for things to do – there was a binder in the condo as well as the activities we read about on the listing. We all went out on our first day and swam and chased a small crab across the beach.
The condo was very spacious for the mama, papa and teenage bear so we did not have to worry about stepping on each other’s paws. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and every morning we would look out at the beach and hear the waves. The condo was well appointed with towels for the shower and towels for the beach. With a washer and dryer in the unit we never ran out of towels.
The condo is centrally located so we could walk to most of our excursion appointments (scuba, kayak, snorkel and horseback riding) as well as the downtown and beach areas. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about the area. He recommended a rental car even though we could walk to most things, and we were glad we had one. We didn’t have to wait for taxis when going farther than the mile around the condo, and the GPS was helpful since some road signs were harder to see than others.
The coolest thing we did was go out to Desecheo Island and do a snorkel trip where we could see the bottom of the ocean even though it was a good 50 feet below. It was there that we saw sea turtles. We also enjoyed Harbor restaurant, it is just a block and a half from the condo and the red snapper there was mouthwatering

About the owner: We love Rincón. My husband, Edgar and I grew up all over the country, but we LOVE the ocean. Ever since we vacationed in Puerto Rico we've been going back to Rincón on vacation as often as we can. As time went on, we found Puerto Rico to be the perfect place to take kids and for adults alike. We couldn't get enough of the ocean. We dive, snorkel, kayak, horseback ride and relax around the beach We were just amazed the first time we went snorkeling and then watched the fabulous sunsets - There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'Rincón beach condo.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Rincón has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! Suzanne & Edgar, Gaineville, FL. Come and find out why we love this place so much. We speak English and Spanish.
