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.





Hollywood Hits Rincon as Mad Dogs

For the last couple weeks in Rincon you could catch several actors at the bars, beaches and Sunday Farmers Market.   That is because Amazon is using Rincon as the filming location for it's drama pilot "Mad Dogs".  During this time one of the actors, Romany Malco, was using his public facebook page to show off all the beauty of Puerto Rico (which was fun to see).


Although they 'say' the location is Belize - it is really Rincon Puerto Rico - essentially the same beauty you enjoy from your Rincon Apartment Rental!


Here is some scoop from the Hollywood Reporter ...

  • The streaming service (Amazon) has tapped Steve Zahn, Romany Malco and Ben Chaplin to star in Shawn Ryan's adaptation of Mad Dogs, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
  • Mad Dogs, from Sony Pictures Television, centers on four former frat brothers who travel to Belize for a reunion with their wealthy old college friend only to have their luxury vacation interrupted by murder, conspiracy and a psychotic gang lord who is out for their hides.
  • Zahn will play Cobi, a 40ish, married financial adviser described as a slick and amusing guy who is fighting the onset of middle age by dressing a little too young, complete with his blond highlights and Abercrombie style. He joins his old pals, Gus (Malco), Lex and Joel (Chaplin), for the jaunt to Belize to visit wealthy friend Milo.
  • The Sopranos alum Michael Imperioli has joined the cast of Amazon's Shawn Ryan drama pilot Mad Dogs

It seems the filming has stopped for now. But if we hear or see any activity we will let you know. 


Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!






Rincon Trolley Car or Rincon Trans

Rincon Trolley with Community Rescued Horse "PAPI"

The City of Rincon Puerto Rico NOW has two of these beautifully big & air conditioned Trolley cars that can take you around Rincon.  They are officially called "Rincon Trans" and they are a new addition to our lovely surf town.


They don't have a set schedule or route that we know of yet, but we will continue to research and keep you posted.


Last Season these Rincon Trolleys went from your the South Rincon area, through downtown, by Tres Palmas up the 413 to Puntas, around Sandy Beach and then back to downtown past the Post Office (not the same way they came up).   We are assuming they will have a similar route this Season.   


Ask any local Rincon business for the posted Trolley schedule because when the city makes them available they will be posted!   It's a great causal way to see all the beautiful spots in Rincon!
