Our hacienda guest cottage, originally made for friends, is in a rather unique location - in the area known as La Buena for its friendliness, gentleness and calm. It's situated on the Caonillas River, in tropical gardens surrounded by rain forest mountains and a great jump-off point for adventurers. The town of Utuado is the oldest town in Puerto Rico and is the coffee growing region. It's an area of friendliness, gentleness and calm. Breathtakingly beautiful, we're between two lakes on the river that connects the two lakes, Dos Bocas and Caonilloas. There are kayak tours to waterfalls and restaurants on the lakes.
Surrounded by mountain and river views , nestled in gardens of tropical flowers our charming little guest cottage comes with quiet nights of stars and sweet music of the rain forest and river.
Sleeping two, it boasts a Beauty Rest "Recharge" Queen size mattress, with an open space kitchen and a bathroom with shower. All amenities and linens, fresh flowers. In the kitchen find a well-stocked pantry. The refrigerator, microwave and gas bbq are on the front porch for cooling, or walk across the property to the restaurant with a mountain view for breakfast and dinner.
Have your morning coffee while watching the herons, the changing mountains, the Puerto Rican cuckoo and hawks that come to fish in the river.
There are activities and adventures nearby. Enjoy zip lines, caving, canyon river tubing, horseback riding, kayaking, rappelling and come to relax in a hammock.
Eating is easy with many local, inexpensive restaurants on the lakes with every imaginable type of food.
Files of information on activities, sights, adventures, shopping and how to get here suggestions are sent upon reservation.

About the owner: I've lived at Hacienda D'el lago on my hacienda for 20 years and have raised many champion Paso Fino horses, the preferred ride of Puerto Rico and South America. This is a very special and unique spot in the rain forest mountains with the Caonillas river, alive with fish, as a border on the south side. I grew up in central New Jersey and have lived in New York. I've been to several universities and The Culinary Institute of America. well-loved vacation getaway for my new friends and acquaintances. I also am devoted to helping the stray animals, the street dogs and cats here that need care and comfort. Over the years I have rescued 100 dogs and still care very much for the street dogs, Satos, and make their care part of my daily schedule, in addition to my own three equines, five dogs and four felines. I'm very happy about the work I do with and for the animals and all creatures here. I enjoy meeting interesting people, reading and riding and all outdoor activities. Sharing this has been the best experience of my time in Puerto Rico.
Why the Owner Chose Caonillas Abajo, Utuado, Puerto Rico:
This is a most unusual story....I bought this property sight unseen many years ago and it turned out to be a jewel. The Jungalow was a guest house for visiting friends and just turned into a vacation guest rental, and that makes it special for us, making many new and wonderful friends. I love that the water is from a private mountain spring, delicious and so clean. It's been a wonderful experience sharing this special place and opening it to new friends. .
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Surrounded by the rain forest mountains, and the bamboo along the river, there is no better place to sleep and relax. You can walk through the jungle behind the cottage and visit the cave, go down to the water and get in - it's waist deep in places, no more - and really breath the beautiful air here! There are amazing adventures to be had in the area and they are run by truly wonderful folks. I think this is paradise, and pretty darn perfect for a couple's getaway.
