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.

Post Hurricane Irma Sept 2017 | All is well in Rincon Puerto Rico

Although the news and media may have you thinking life in Rincon is not as beautiful as it was post Hurricane Irma, We are here to tell you everything is still beautiful in Rincon.  

 

The Island of Puerto Rico and Rincon got very lucky with respect to how much worse Irma could have hit us.

 

We did have a few days of no power as the electric company surveyed and addressed the Island's down trees and lines.  Some parts of Rincon came back with power faster than others while at the time of this blog we believe about 20% of Rincon may still be without power. However, the electric company continues to work on all the issues.  

 

Water can be had by those who have rain water collection systems and the City of Rincon has been out offering to fill cisterns on roofs.  Water is not completely out everywhere, just issues here and there as the electric is addressed.

 

There was no real damage or loss of life in Rincon that we are aware of.   This photo was taken by Katie Moon after Irma and we love the caption ...... "Glad Irma didn't destroy beautiful Rincon".  We could not agree more!  Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
