In Luquillo you will find plenty to do during your stay here. This beach town is in the center of the many activities like beach festivals, surfing competitions, the annual "Festival de Platos Tipicos" where you can sample the many cooking recipes of Puerto Rico, floorshows and nightlife that take place in the lounges and casinos of the Wyndham El Conquistador and the Westin RioMar Resorts, both with 18 hole championship golf courses. There are several must visit places nearby; 'El Centro de Bellas Artes de Luquillo' with a museum of local 'artesanos' presents theater and musical events. We are sure you will enjoy a day visit to the El Yunque National Rain Forest where the views and nature trails will mesmerize you with the splendor of exquisite natural foliage. Make sure you take the trail to the Coca waterfall and wear shorts or a swim trunk so that you can take a plunge in the cool pristine water pond where the river downstream is born; you will never forget this one. The El Faro Lighthouse Museum and adjacent Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve (bioluminescent mangrove lagoon) and the above water boardwalk and nature trail walk are found a short 15 minutes drive on the scenic road that leads to Las Croabas in the neighboring town of Fajardo where you can take day trips by Ferry to Vieques and Culebra. At the foot of this same road you will find local fishermen selling their catch of the day and some are for hire and will take you out on day excursions to the many little isolated islands including Palomino Island, Cayo Icacos and others. Are you up to competing in Blue Marlin fishing? Here you will find marinas where you can book a one day trip and go out with the locals to the best areas for your prize winner Blue Marlin. If you like Thoroughbred horse racing you will find Hipodromo el Comandante on Highway 3 in the town of Canovanas.
New comers (email hidden) with useful information for people moving or relocating to reside or retire in Puerto Rico as newcomers.
TRANSPORTATION: Direct non stop flights are available into San Juan International from all major US airports. You will find all the major car rental agencies as well as local competitive agencies that are priced cheaper. There are also Taxicabs and Public cars (publicos) which you can charter at a pre-agreed fare.
Driving around and getting around Luquillo without a car could be difficult: It's highly recommended that you avail yourself of a rental car at the Airport. Although the easiest way to get here is taking a taxi at the taxi stand in the airport but you will need a car to get around and visit other areas and the rest of the island.
Other Things to Note
Playa Azul (Costa Azul), Luquillo is one of Puerto Rico's most beautiful beach areas perfect for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling in sparkling blue waters. The sand is natural golden-red and the coral reefs are full of colorful tropical fish and marine life. In the town of Luquillo, a few steps from Condominio Playa Azul you will find "La Pared" one of Puerto Rico's renowned surfing beach where the adventurous traveling surfer can find suitable overnight lodging across from the surfing beach. Continue walking east past Condominium Sandy Hills for ten minutes and you will find the deserted surf La Selva, an area perfect for the adventurous hiker with a rough surf located next to rural pastureland. Make sure to bring plenty of drinking water with you.
Beautiful view from the porch! The secure parking and grounds were reassuring. As another reviewer noted the shower has a mind of it's own, sometimes scalding sometimes cold. The A/C is in a window unit in the bedroom. The central location is close to Fajardo, the rain-forest, and really nice snorkeling right outside on the beach at 'La Punta.' We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
The view is exactly as posted on Airbnb, beautiful. This was our 4rd destination in Puerto Rico, which was convenient to Rain Forest and ferry/airport to travel to Culebra. Maria followed through with our agreement made prior to reservation and welcomed us with Krispy donuts. I really appreciate the donuts considering her busy schedule which delayed her response time to my questions/needs. The apartment itself, shower has a mind of its own and difficult to work with. And the cable/internet requires much needed upgrade to pass the down times. The balcony was inviting, relaxing, and the security of the apartment complex was a plus. My favorite destinations in Puerto Rico,. San Juan and Culebra.
We had a great time in Luquillo! The view from Maria's balcony was amazing. We loved eating at the kioskos, but also loved that we had a kitchen to cook in. It was so fun to see the beautiful beach from the balcony and walk out the front door to see El Yunque! Thanks Maria!
The unit is as pictured and described.
The building is secure and very clean. The grounds are very nice. The beach is close and nice. More clam beaches are a short distance away.
The panoramic view from the living room and balcony of this apartment is simply stellar. You can see the entire lagoon with its turquoise waters, coral reefs and breaking waves right in front of you. Also, the balcony faces North, so you are always in the shade, plus there is a constant cool breeze from the ocean, which flows through the apartment and comes out on the other side. As a result, it is very comfortable without AC even if it is too hot outside. The apartment is neat, updated, and has full kitchen. The town of Luquillo on the other hand is a lot less impressive and is a bit sketchy. Luckily there is a tight 24/7 security around the building, and guards are super helpful. So, we actually preferred staying in the apartment most of the time, cooking in, with occasional day trips to San Juan, rain forest, and island expeditions on a boat. I should mention that we saw families with kids enjoying property's pool, tennis and basketball courts, ping pong, as well as the local beach, but did not find much use for them ourselves.
Bello Mar was located right on the water with a nice deck for those sunsets and sunrises. It was well equipped and located within a few minutes from El Yunque. It was just a short walk to a nice beach for the kids too. We loved our stay.
We (family of four) had a wonderful stay at the condo. Everything was just like in the pictures, very clean, well supplied and the location is perfect in Luquillo. The view from the balcony was breathtaking, you can hear the waves crashing on the beach below. We appreciated having the pools (one shallow for young kids), had no problem with the Wi-Fi, and felt very safe in the neighbourhood. Excellent location for exploring all of Northeastern PR. We would stay here again!
