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.

In the words of founder/owner Tim Collins: Let me tell you a story. It’s about a normal everyday guy who decided to do what so many people only dream about. I moved to the Caribbean. Now that I live and work here, and travel throughout the islands, I have the joy of sharing this lifestyle and its flavors with you.  If you had to choose between islands where you’d want to live, it wouldn’t be easy. I decided to hang my hat in Puerto Rico. It’s enchanting – beautiful, geographically diverse, rich with history, culture, and the warmth and friendliness of the Puerto Rican people. I founded Caribbean Trading Company and recruited a great crew that brings you the best specialty products from the Caribbean and beyond. Tim Collins (Captain Tim, Ruler of the High Seas, Finder of the Goodies)
