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.





Fiestas Patronales de Rincón or Rincon’s Patron Saint Festival

If you are staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental this weekend you will want to check out the celebration of  Fiestas Patronales de Rincón happening in and around Downtown.

The official location of the Fiestas Patronales de Rincón or Rincon’s Patron Saint Festival is Plaza Amastad.   You won't miss it while the Festival is going on as there are vendors, live music, carnival rides and people .... lots of friendly happy people.

A little bit about the celebration - from BE Rincon

"Why is Santa Rosa de Lima our patron saint? The Catholic Church located in the town Plaza, which was founded in 1789, originally had two patron saints, but currently it only has one named Santa Rosa de Lima. Legend has it, that her parents left Rincón, Puerto Rico towards Peru in search of gold and riches, therefore, this patron saint who is known in Catholic religious circles all over the world was truly the daughter of “Rincoeños”. Every year during August a festival is held in honor of Santa Rosa de Lima."

Enjoy your Uniquely Rincon Vacation!

Local Recycled Art in Rincon

If you are looking to buy art in Rincon there is always the Sunday morning Farmers Market and the Thursday Night Art Walk - both in the Downtown Plaza.    But there is an amazing artist who you might want to visit outside those two venues.  You  can find him most any day on the road taking you to the Public Beach, right past the Cooperativa.  He is  Juan L Crespo!


Juan creates beautiful art ..... and sometimes that beautiful art is on an old unusable surfboard.    


Juan's art was recently spotted by a 'Mi Puerto Rico Verde' correspondent and he got a nice write up on their site because he does recycle items to make his art.   But Juan's art is not just interesting and beautiful because it sometimes is on recycled items.   Juan's art is just plain beautiful art!


Stop and check out Juan's art .......  purchase something from this self taught and highly talented Rincon Artist!   He is right on the side of the road, as these photos show him.  You can also reach Juan at (787) 372-2565

Summer Vacation in Rincon Puerto Rico

This is the beauty you are likely to see if staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental during the Summer or early Fall.  

Storms usually come in around noon to 2pm and really cool down the afternoons.     Mornings are usually very sunny which is perfect for line drying anything that got soaking wet the day before.   Our experience has been not to trust the weather reports which can be wrong in either direction.  Because the storms develop fast and move fast they are hard to predict.  Just close all your windows before leaving, pull in anything that you don't want to get accidentally wet and enjoy the beautiful days of Summer and Fall.   They really are some of the prettiest days with everything in bloom!  

Of course no one knows for certain what Mother Nature will do on any given day, but here are a few more photos all taken this August.   Enjoy your Uniquely Rincon Vacation  (Oh, and a phone radar app is a great thing to help you know for certain when the storm is heading your way)
