Our trip to Villa Tropical was probably the best vacation I've ever been on. No really, it was amazing. I've been to Puerto Rico several times, but only the San Juan and Condado areas. However, this time my boyfriend and I decided to get away from the tourist crowds and try Villa Tropical.
Villa Tropical was absoluelty amazing. We had a beautiful villa right on the beach. We stayed in Q2. It was clean and simple and exactly what we expected after seeing the photos online. Every morning we would walk right onto the beach and and have it completely to ourselves. And at night we would grill up some fish and eat on the oceanfront deck. The fact that we were away from all the packs of tourist and busy street made everything feel so relaxing.
Even though we loved the laid back feel we're still really active people. We went snorkling right in front of our villa, kayaking, spearfishing, surfing, standup paddleboarding (with Aquatica highly recommended), swimming, hiking, and even went crabbing with a couple that was in the villa next to us! It was the perfect combination of relaxation and activity. And without any of the overpriced fees you'd get at a large resort!
Lastly, everyone was so wonderful and kind. People would come visit our porch and chat. We would share drinks and talk with other guests. I've never had the experience of staying somewhere that you could make friends and share stories with people from all over the country. We met so many amazing people. Not only that but the employees of Villa Tropical were so helpful too!
I had the most unbelievable experience here. It was truely a magical place! I just got home yesterday and can't stop telling everyone that they have to visit. And as for my boyfriend and I, we're already planning our next trip to Villa Tropical!
