Activities in Rincón, Puerto Rico; Art, best beaches for surfing, scuba, and snorkeling, whale watching at the lighthouse, hiking, food, and fun weekly events.
Rincón, Puerto Rico is located on the northwest coast, in the farthest west corner of the island of Puerto Rico where the Atlantic Oceans meets the Caribbean Sea.
Known as the surfing capital of the island, this tiny town offers big adventure, a joyful art scene, and plenty of outdoor activities. World famous beaches along the 8 miles of coastline and incredible sunsets are just a couple of the great features in town.
Art is incorporated into everyday life and visible throughout town from the moment you arrive.
There are two large mosaic tile decorated arches for each of the main entrances along Route 115 on both the north entrance bordering Aguada and the south entrance that borders Añasco. Created by local Artist Edgardo Gardy Rodriguez, the tiled columns feature iconic scenes such as the lighthouse, surfers, whales, and more cultural significant themes.
Golf, Tennis, Beach, Hiking, Horse Rides, and so many activities in Palmas del Mar, Puerto Rico! Palmas del Mar is located about an hour south of San Juan in the municipality of Humacao on the east coast of Puerto Rico. Let me show you some of my favorite places & activities around Palmas del Mar!
Palmas del Mar, Puerto Rico is a resort community best known for golf and the largest tennis center in the Caribbean. But there is so much more to this amazing community for guests and residents alike.
Castillo Serrallés is the family home of the best selling rum brand in Puerto Rico, Don Q. This incredible castle and much of the entire city of Ponce, was build as part of the vast Serrallés family fortune.
Built in 1930, this four story concrete castle sits on top of a hill overlooking downtown Ponce, Puerto Rico. The former family mansion turned museum is Spanish Revival or Spanish Moroccan architecture designed in the 1920’s. Surrounded by magnificently manicured gardens, there is a strong breeze from the Caribbean Sea to naturally cool the property.
The Best of Loiza, Puerto Rico including my favorite beaches, one of the largest Bee Sanctuaries in the Caribbean, Bomba Dancing and history of the African Roots of Puerto Rico.
Playa Piñones, Piñones Kioskos, and the Parque Historico of Cueva Maria de la Cruz in Loiza, Puerto Rico
One of my favorite beaches along the north coast (30 minutes East of San Juan, an hour from Humacao), is Playa Piñones located on PR-187 in Loiza. This golden sand beach feels like brown sugar under your toes.
