Carretera 413 Ramal, Rincon, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
You can find a number of small craft boutiques in Rincon, but none as eclectic as The Mango Beach Shop. Owned by a longtime resident of Rincon, one of the first non Puerto Ricans to call the west coast home, it's a local legacy and favorite....
Black Eagle Marina, Rincon, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
Enjoy a delicious drink at my favorite place in Rincon—La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle. The best food in town, its menu of always-changing gourmet dishes accompanies the best sunsets. I come here once every couple of weeks, and I've always been...
Carr. 413, km 1.2, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
The farmers' market of Rincon offers a dozen varieties of foods, local produce, and drinks. I love to visit the market to get my fix of Mediterranean food, which we don't have daily in Rincon. The market is every Sunday during the season, and the...
Puerto Rico 115, Stella, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
Villa Cofresi in Rincon is well-known for its signature drink La Pirata, which translates to "the Pirate." It's a fresh green coconut whose water has been mixed with rum and cinnamon. It's too much drink for even the coconut, so you always get a...
Calle Cambija, Rincón, 00677, Puerto Rico
Cambija is a weekly stop for me. They always have the best fresh fish and some of the best service in town. They have made several upgrades to their location over the past year, as well as introduced local brews and new items to their menu. This...
Calle Progreso #4 Local #1, Rincón, 00677, Puerto Rico
Ocean State of Mind is a flourishing store right in the ever-growing center of Rincon, PR. The town center has attracted many new businesses with the installment of its popular "Art Walk" on Thursday nights. You can find artisans from all over the...
Puerto Rico, Rincon, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
I love Barrero Beach for escaping the crowds at other local spots in Rincon. Barrero is flanked by a small, single-lane road that meanders the coastline for a perfect drive. Past Corcega Beach, it's your next right. On a clear day, you'll have a...
Rincón, 00602, Puerto Rico
A unique cafe for locals and tourists, BD Cafe serves up delicious smoothies, açai bowls, and coffees, with a particular love for bananas! My favorites are the Thai iced tea (the only one in Rincon besides Ode to Elephants' Thai iced tea martini),...
Rincon, 00602, Puerto Rico
Behind one of the most popular surf spots in Rincon is a breathtaking view of the northwest coast of PR. Domes Beach during fall/winter will be packed with surfers, but if you want to enjoy the location without being slapped by boards or crowds,...
PR-413 Rincon Puerto Rico 00677, Rincón 00602, Puerto Rico
I suppose it's the currents (or lack thereof) around Puerto Rico that create the perfect environment for beachcombing. Once it reaches the safety of the coast, it hugs the shoreline and never leaves. Every beach in Rincon beckons with its...
Carr. 413, km 1.2, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
In a bright-orange cart off the main 413 Highway in Rincon, fresh juices and fruit smoothies are being poured into mason jars for the drinking. The newly opened Carta Buena is a hot spot for a healthy boost. Smoothies, juices, and even coffee are...
PR-110R, Aguadilla Pueblo, Aguadilla 00603, Puerto Rico
We found the best spot for the freshest açai bowl on the west coast of Puerto Rico. Da Bowls in Aguadilla beats anything in Rincon or anywhere else on the island. Mix and match your own, or go with their selection. We chose the Reef Bowl, which...
Rincon, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
Craving some delicious Puerto Rican food? Want some that is a little atypical but still with island/Latin flavor? The Red Flamboyan in Rincon is your spot. Opened in 2012 (under new owners), this place is nestled amongst the most iconic Puerto...
Costa de Oro, Km 8.2 Calle Marginal, Dorado, 00646, Puerto Rico
My fiancé and I live in Puerto Rico, but we love to try new local places. So, while on our stay-cation at the Ritz-Carlton's Dorado Beach Resort, the staff suggested we venture into town to taste the local food at the Green House Cafe. We loved...
Quebradillas, 00678, Puerto Rico
A slight turn off the main highway can have you overlooking the beautiful steep sided cliffs of Quebradillas and Isabella. On highway 2, once you first catch a close glimpse of the water directly off to your right, take your first right at the...
Av. José Cedeño, Arecibo, 00612, Puerto Rico
From the best hidden restaurant on the north coast of Puerto Rico, this dish is duck spring rolls on a seaweed salad. It's a touch of French with a Puerto Rican flare. Chef Cedric Taquin does it all. He fishes for his own catch of the day, he...
San Juan-Caguas-Guaynabo, PR, Puerto Rico
Cuevas del Indios (Indian Caves) of Arecibo offers a tidbit of ancient history of a lost people. An easy-to-find natural wonder, with a simple $2 fee for parking, this you won't want to miss. Bring some sunscreen and your camera. Begin your hike...
