Take a closer look at Lajas

Lajas is set along the south-west coast of Puerto Rico, where it serves as a laid-back base for vacations with family and friends. Along the coast is where you'll find many Lajas vacation rentals, along with one of the town's highlights – the seafront village of La Parguera – which places everything from scuba diving and swimming to succulent seafood and a swinging nightlife firmly on the menu. Heading away from the waterfront, the landscape transforms to a scene of rolling hills and sprawling pineapple farms – the perfect surroundings for those looking for a slower pace.

Seasonal delights in Lajas

The summer months of May through October are hot and muggy, with temperatures in the high 80s. They're also in the line of fire of the Caribbean hurricane season.

It's a little cooler at this time of year, but still plenty warm enough to satisfy those in need of a generous helping of sunny days. For those looking for great rental deals, it's worth seeing what's available in November – a sweet spot at the end of the rainy season and before the arrival of the winter crowds.
