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.

Rincon Restaurants Using Biodegradable Products

While enjoying a delicious meal at The Wok one day we noticed the following on their menu

  • All bowls and utensils are 100% biodegradable
  • We do not sell water in plastic bottles

This got us curious as to what other Rincon Restaurants are making an effort to bring down the use of styrofoam and plastics in our community.     At the time of this blog the following Rincon Restaurants have responded to our inquiry and are using biodegradable containers:


1. The Wok (of course, by Tres Palmas on the 413)

2. FRESH (by Maria's Beach on the 413)


3. Carta Buena (on the 413 after Tres Palmas before the Marina)

4. Sana Food Stand (on the 115 across from the Rincon Post Office)

5. Many vendors at the Sunday Farmer's Market / Mercado Agroecologico de Rincón (in the Rincon Downtown Plaza)


If more Rincon Restaurants join this movement and let us know we will add them to our blog.   

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation


Notes:  Foil is not biodegradable.    Biodegradable products can be purchased on line and are perfect for to-go food.   Bring your own Tupperware/cup if you want to help bring awareness and a solution to this issue.
