Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now
San German is ideally situated within 15 - 30 minutes of the 6 best beaches on the SW coast of Puerto Rico. For families, your best bet are the western beaches of Boqueron and Combate with white sand and full service beach. For those more adventurous, the beaches of Guanica and Cana Gorda are perfect for water sports or just walking. Lying exactly SW of San German, the SW corner of Puerto Rico, the perfect crescent beach at Punto Faro (lighthouse bay) will make all your postcard dreams come true... it is also a nationally protected nature preserve perfect for bird watching. In Pargara bay, 20 minutes south of the casita, you will find a complete center for all water sports, fine dining and most especially in the evening touring a bioluminescent bay, one of a handful in the world.
Year Purchased: 2007
About: Growing up in Minnesota, and living in New England most of my adult life, I was delighted when friends brought me to this colonial treasure, San German. I find Casa Rosa is perfect for enjoying my friends in town and escaping regularly to the most beautiful beaches.
Why San Germán, San Germán, Puerto Rico:
My dear friends have been coming their whole lives to the SW area of Puerto Rico. They have many deep connections to this community and wanted me to experience this unique, beautiful town. As it happened, while visiting for the first time, I offered to buy their house. They agreed and purchased a big 'project' house which is now finished and only a block away. So lucky for me.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love sitting on the balcony to enjoy the lights and the events on the plaza, as music from the plaza and the church across the street floats on the cool morning or evening air. Often we take a walk down the street to eat, watch a performance in the plaza or buy home made ice cream made from local fruit. Sometimes we eat drink coffee with flan, play dominos in the plaza and watch the evening promenade. It's so relaxing.
