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.

The Beach House Restaurant and Bar Rincon 413

If you have been to Rincon before you have probably noticed this perfectly placed bar on the 413.  Set right above Maria's Beach, it is one of the best spots to enjoy a famous Rincon Sunset.    

 

The location has gone through several owners and changes but we are most excited about this new one - The Beach House is a very welcoming design and atmosphere.   Now with no parking allowed directly where you sit and enjoy your food, drinks and view!  Don't worry because there is plenty of parking to the right of the bar and across the street.  

 

The menu is classic roadhouse food with a Caribbean twist!  So when you are ready to change up the beautiful sunset view you have from your Rincon Apartment Rental head up the 413 and look for The Beach House right above Calypso Cafe!

 

Rumor has it, this bar will be horse friendly with a hitching post soon to come! 

 

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation and thanks to Angelo Cordero Photography for the photo!

Christmas in the Caribbean Rincon Puerto Rico

Bringing the whole family to Rincon for the Holidays is a beautiful thing.  


Some of the things you will encounter, enjoy and you should know are the following:

  • The Downtown Rincon Plaza is lite up (this photo is from this year, 2014)
  • Offers to drink up some Coquito are all about  --  An Authentic Puerto Rican Beverage, normally it includes alcohol. Normally made with coconut and similar to eggnog, you'll likely love Puerto Rican Coquito! It is normally a thick and creamy coconut drink that includes cinnamon and rum. Everyone makes it differently so taste around!
  • On Christmas Eve, Noche buena meaning "Good Night" is celebrated with a Midnight Mass
  • Feliz Año Nuevo! Means Happy New Year!
  • Feliz Navidad, Felicidades or Felices Pascuas is used to wish a Merry Christmas!"
  • A feast of lechon asado consisting of a pig roasted on a spit is one of the most popular Christmas dishes. It is accompanied by mojo and arroz con gandules which is rice cooked with peas and small pies called pasteles or  a type of sausage called a morcillas
  • Seek out some "mojo" - a herb sauce of finely chopped cilantro or parsley with salt lots of crushed garlic olive oil, onions, vinegar and lemon
  • Seek out Deserts of Tembleque, (coconut pudding) and Turron (a nougat desert made of honey, sugar and egg white which is topped with toasted almonds)
