Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean
Puerto Rico has many balnearios, government-owned public beaches with restrooms, picnic tables, and other facilities that are aimed at campers. The Balneario La Monserrate, in northeastern Luquillo, is a good spot for aquatic activities like windsurfing and snorkeling. Kiosks sell fritters, drinks, and beach towels; chair, umbrella, and kayak rentals are also available. On Vieques, an island off the southeastern shore, the palm tree-lined Sun Bay has horses roaming the grounds. If Sun Bay gets too crowded, walk over to the nearby Esperanza Beach for some peace and quiet.
