For the second time, my family rented a beach house in Puerto Rico for a week this summer. Last time we went not too far from San Juan, Luquillo Beach. While Luquillo is supposed to be the most beautiful beach on the island, we were ready to try another one this year.
We ended up driving 2 and half hours west of San Juan to the surfing town of Rincon. It’s a tiny town where you really get the feeling that everyone knows each other.
I don’t have too much to say about our trip other than this: If you have not yet been to Puerto Rico, please go. It is such a wonderful little island with so many different areas to explore. You get the feeling of being in another country without the trouble. We had delicious food, beautiful weather and glorious snorkeling right in front of the house we rented.
And while it may not be as cheap as loading your family into the car and driving to the nearest beach, the house rentals are comparable to those on the mainland. So do yourself and your family a favor and just go.
