Located on the west coast of Puerto Rico, the coastal town of Rincon hosts many entertaining activities such as surfing competitions, marathons, triathlons and music festivals. Rincon's El Faro lighthouse, which is one of the only two observation parks for whale watching in the whole world, offers a stunning view of the Caribbean ocean and is a short walk from the Villa.
You can take spectacular Puerto Rico day trips to nearby areas that include rain forests, coffee plantations, the Rio Camuy Cave Park, the wonderful Phosphorescent Bay, Cabo Rojo's salt flats and Arecibo's enormous radio telescope. Our visitors can enjoy golfing just 25 minutes away in Aguadilla and gamble 20 minutes away in Mayaguez.
The town of Rincon offers fine dining restaurants, shops and the services our tourists need, including medical services. In spite of its distinctions, Rincon retains a rural charm.
Playa Maria is the heart of the Rincon surfing and beach culture. It is also part of the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve and an excellent place to snorkel when the surf is small. Beach activities include surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kiting, and snorkeling.
