I have been to Puerto Rico before for the excellent surf but until now have not been fortunate enough to stay at Villa Tropical. We recently spent three nights in the Filisha F2 which was ideal for our family of five. The hospitality that Trevor, Jennifer, and the rest of the staff showed us went above and beyond our expectations.
Although we could see the potential for a nice surf break directly out in front of Shacks Beach, the minimal swell did not produce ridable waves. One of the best things about this location is that you can normally find decent surf within a ten minute drive of Villa Tropical. We surfed Jobos Beach (five minute drive) during our last two days there. We were amazed how well this break served to all skill levels with multiple breaks in varying sizes to choose from. I'm not sure who had more fun, my ten year old son or myself. We were also able to enjoy the fantastic snorkeling directly off the Shacks Beach, the Camuy Caves (an hours drive away), and even horseback riding on the beach!
The Villa Tropical is the perfect tropical destination that offers something for the entire family.
We can't wait to go back!!!
