nice place to relax and have fun in the sun. There is one building to buy gifts at, otherwise I would suggest you bring food and drinks. You can walk to the kiosks from here if you want.

We spent all day at Luquillo Beach and had a great time. The water is very calm (protected bay). The water was blue but not very clear. The food offered at the snack shack is tremendous, mostly fried local foods, and have awesome mixed drinks in fresh pineapples. The beach was clean and there was plenty of space to set... More

There is an area run by the Government and an area further down with lots of restaurants and shops. The area by the shops is free while the other section does have an admission fee. I recommend paying the small admission fee. This area is much cleaner and less crowded while the area by the kiosks can have a smell... More

El Yunque is very popular and as a result can become very crowded. A good strategy to avoid the worst of the crowds is to arrive early (opens at 7:30 am) as parking can become difficult, if not impossible, by early afternoon and the trails and other points of interest are swarming with people. So after a morning visit to... More

If you are able, hike to the waterfall and swim in it. About 40 minute hike each direction. Sometimes steep up and down hills. Bring water shoes for waterfall swimming. So worth the trek!!!

This beach is beautiful with great amenities. For a 1 dollar fee, you have access to the bathrooms, lockers and showers all day. There is a food stand and shopping stall on site. Just a short walk away there are a number of food kiosks with a variety of local foods. Plenty of convenient parking. The beach was beautiful, clean... More

The beach is breath taking..the water was so clear and the sand was like sugar...the beach went on forever! Be prepared to bring all your own gear. Its worth it to see this if you love beaches! The staff and the grounds are nothing special--the staff was almost rude..did not seem to care about helping or answering any questions. Do... More

This was one of the best beaches in the Caribbean that I've visited and I've been to quite a few beaches. Not many people out that day, but just enough to make it festive. I highly recommend!

This beach is not only beautiful but so calm it is suitable for people with smaller children. There is just enough wave action to be fun and safe. We were there Wednesday January 20th. No crowds mostly tourists. There is a bath house were you pay $1 per adul .50 for children for all day use. These are not high... More
