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.

Purchase a Purple Lizard map of Rincon before your trip, a very accurate  road and beach map with lots of other useful information.





Bike Rentals in Rincon Puerto Rico

If you are looking to do some biking while staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental we suggest you first drive around Rincon to get an idea of the area.  

One of the more unique biking opportunities in Rincon is the area by El Faro.   The roads are flat and right next to the Ocean.  You also have the option to Mountain Bike in the trails of El Faro, as the below map shows.  

Take a friend and let someone know you are going into the trails.  You probably will not get cell reception in the trails but if you feel lost just listen for the waves and head downhill, we think it would be hard to really get lost in the trails - but better safe than sorry!  

You may see horses, joggers, ATVs and other bikers in the trails.


Contact Rincon Mountain Bike for more information on rentals and Rincon biking information at (787) 967-7575.  Photo thanks to RMB!

Enjoy your Uniquely Rincon Vacation!

Rincon Sushi Bars

Rincon has two Sushi Bars that we are aware of

  1. Pools Sushi - located at Sandy Beach in Puntas
  2. Sophia's Sushi (uniquely offering Sangria) - located off the 115 - just a short distance from your Rincon Apartment Rental

We just had a delicious and friendly dinner at Sophia's and the Sangria options is worth a mention.   They have a selection of 4 homemade Sangrias for you to choose from 

  • Traditional
  • Mango
  • Blue Parcha (local passion fruit)
  • A mix of all 3

Sophia's has a friendly bilingual staff and the Sushi Chef does an amazing job of presenting delicious and fresh sushi.  This Rincon Restaurant has just two outdoor tables (at the time of this writing) and the inside is air condictioned.  If you have a tenancy to get cold, you might want to bring a jacket. 

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!

Whale Watching in Rincon

If you are staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental during the Whale Watching Season in Puerto Rico we hope you get to see these amazing beauties of the Sea.  


Thanks to Ron Ditmore and Rincon Surf Photos for these impressive photos, taken just last week in Rincon.


Every Winter humpback whales can be seen along the Rincon Coastline for a 2-3 month period.  The Whales rest, mate, and care for their young before heading back up North. You will have the best chance of spotting humpback whales from mid-January though mid-March.
