Your casa awaits you high in the central mountains of Utuado, Puerto Rico complete with panoramic views surrounded by lush greenery, flowers, tropical fruits and plants. A breadfruit tree (pana), papaya, starfruit, bananas, oranges, plantains and more all on this property next to the expansive tiled and furnished terrace with a wood burning fireplace overlooking the grand view. You can watch hawks swooping down to catch a meal and hear the Puerto Rican Owl warbling in the night. Ferdy is the friendly caretaker who can provide you with firewood for the 🔥 fireplace for a reasonable fee. A charcoal grill is available for your convenience.
You may also enjoy cooling dips in the pool and plan your outings while swaying in a hammock in the gazebo or on the terrace. Coffee plantations are nearby or on a weekend drive 50 minutes to Lagos Dos Bocas to take an exhilarating boat ride to a lakeside restaurant; that is a real Puerto Rican treat to taste the authentic foods! Only 30 minutes to the North is the famous and interesting Aricebo Observatory where one can spend a couple of fascinating hours or more. Cumuy Caverns and Guanataca Forest with nicely maintained trails and a small cave is in the area too. Tour companies nearby offer more.
