The place I have chosen to write about is Rincon, Puerto Rico, USA. My husband and I have been coming to Rincon for over thirty years. We have brought our children here and look forward to bringing our grandchildren. It is a small piece of paradise. An area with simple people and beautiful resources. This is an island surrounded by beautiful beaches, palm trees, natural wildlife, rainforests and tropical overgrowth. The people of Rincon are friendly, accomodating and not commercialized. Life on this side of the island is simple yet abundant in beautiful color, flowers and wildlife.
As surf enthusiasts, we look forward to indulging in our favorite sport. There is vast variety of local beaches and something for everyone. There are beaches that boast larger than life waves and beaches that offer the calm, tranquil waters, equivalent to a lake. The beaches are vast, yet mostly vacant.
I feel as though we have uncovered a small hidden gem in this vacation hideaway. A place where we can escape and get back into tune with mother nature.
Like so many tropical hideaways, Rincon offers the visitor many options. You can zipline through the rainforests, you can take a canoe ride through the luminescent bay. You can party at one of the local bars, or you can simply sit on the beach and take in the breathtaking sunset each and every night.
The island offers accomondations that can fit into anyone’s lifestyle. There are five star resorts that are fit for the “rich and famous” and small inns that are both affordable and modest.
My family has taken such a liking for this spot that we have purchased a piece of land. It is our dream som day to build our own little piece of home here. A place where we can visit and stay and a place that will always stay within our family.
Rincon offers a variety of fantastic restaurants for evey travelers pocket book. From the lavish restaurants to the side street bodegas, there is truly something for everyone.
So take this advice from our family, not your typical world travelers. just your average family traveling on an average budget. Research the place, pick where you would feel comfortable in staying and just go. You will not be disappointed and most likely will be pleasantly surprised.
