Information About Rincon, Puerto Rico

Rincon, Puerto Rico, vacation, rentals

Rincon, Puerto Rico is a beach town on the northwest side of the island, known for surfing, whale watching, beautiful sunsets, it has become one of the premier locales for Caribbean destination weddings.  There is also diving, fishing, horseback riding and snorkeling at Puerto Rico's only protected marine reserve, Tres Palmas.  Nearby are golf courses, bioluminescent bays, caves and rainforest. 


While Rincon does offer some amazing resorts and larger properties, it is a relatively rural and small town spread out over 8 miles of coastline that ranges from calm Caribbean waters on the south to rock and coral surf breaks on the north. 


The key to enjoying your Rincon vacation is deciding what area of Rincon is best for you and your group.  If you want to surf and be around the surf crowd, vacation rentals and properties in the Puntas and Ensenada areas of Rincon are best.  If you are looking to be closer to town and calmer, more sandy bottomed beaches, properties and vacation rentals in Stella (Parcellas) or Corcega Beach may be better suited for your group. Remember Rincon is spread out and the different areas each have something unique to offer, so don't hesitate to ask about the surrounding area of the vacation rental you are inquiring about, we are happy to point you in the right direction!   Also see our Map of Rincon Vacation Rentals.


We can also help find Rincon vacation activities such as  board rentals, surf lessons, snorkel and sail tours, taxi services, catering and most anything you need for a great Rincon, Puerto Rico vacation!   Feel free to Contact Us.

Día del Descubrimiento de Puerto Rico | Discovery Day Horse Parade "Cabalgata"

If you are staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental this week you might want to take a short and slow road trip to Aguada (the town bordering Rincon on the North).  Because Wednesday November 19th is Día del Descubrimiento (Discovery Day) in all of Puerto Rico.  

Aguada is the location of a large Cabalgata (Horse Parade) to celebrate the day.  People will likely be riding horses all over Puerto Rico and definitely on the 115 and 413 so be patient and always give horses room on the road.

You might want to park on the 115 as you get close to Pico de Piedra and then walk the beachfront road to enjoy the celebration.  There will be bars and restaurants open serving food and drink.   We suggest wearing a good pair of walking shoes that cover your toes!!!

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
