Dine Casually by the Water
Many beaches have restaurants serving the best of island comfort food. In Cabo Rojo, scarf down sorrullitos (corn sticks), empanadillas (turnovers filled with seafood), or rice, beans, and fish at Ann’s Place on El Combate. Crashboat in Aguadillla has stands selling bacalaítos and pinchos (skewers with grilled meat, bread, and barbecue sauce). If it's liquid sustenance you are after, Tamboo Tavern—a few steps from Sandy Beach in Rincón—attracts its loyal clientele with mojitos that you can sip on the deck or while strolling down the beach. You can also come for the live merengue and salsa.
