We did the Rainforest and Luquillo Beach tour with GSI tours, arranged by the Sheraton Old San Juan. The one disappointment of our time in Puerto Rico. The guide, Jesus, was the worst I've ever had--unfriendly, sexist and lazy. As we drove in silence to pick up others, I asked his name and he snapped, "I'll start the tour when... More

It seems to be a laid back beach. Water is calm. Not much waves. So it's great for kids or those that don't like strong waves. Definitely cannot boogie-boarding here. When we were here, the beach was not trashy as others had reported. There are bathroom and shower facilities to rinse off.

During our wanderings by car , I wished to visit a beach I remarked when choosing post cards in San Juan. Actually, the nicest beach amongst the various postcards was named Luquillo Beach. And here we are, lots of parking available, nice beach ( of course , this evaluation depends on what you experienced in beaches, if you love Bora-Bora,... More

We visited the rainforest and loved all of the foliage and sounds of the wild. We rented a car and spent a full day hiking trails and finding waterfalls. Pretty drive too. No fees for the whole day.

A delightful little beach with the warm calm Atlantic water. Nice happy little resort which seemed to be popular for tourists and locals alike.

I enjoy everything about this little time... had a blast in the waters... warm and inviting and very shallow so you could go out much further than expected. Had lots of fun in the water.

Luquillo isn't as stunning as some of the other parts of the island, but the kiosks are pretty great--good food, beach, laid-back part of the island. What more do you want?

I absolutely love this beach. Yes, it is a bit off the beaten track, but if you are seeking calm blue waters with a beautiful El Yunque horizon, then check this place out. Considering beauty and bliss are subjective, let me describe the type of person who will enjoy this beach....carefree, adventurous, low maintenance but well educated, someone who is... More

The public side was very nice with a locker room style restroom, plenty of food and drinks from the wonderful Ed, visit his food stand if you are in the area.
