The west is the best, that phrase says all. World class scuba diving, great beaches, calm waters in the southwest and heavy surf in the northwest. Best sunsets on the island.

The Westside of Puerto Rico it is call Porta del Sol (the sun's door) you could see gorgeous sunsets along the ocean front. You can find exquisite food among the many restaurants to choose. The specialty mostly creole and seafood.

Most Beautiful and warmest beaches in Puerto Rico and don't forget One of the best surfing are in the world at Rincon, Isabela and Aguadilla. Beaches at Cabo Rojo are amazing, Boquerón, El Combate, Buyé. If possible visit MONA Island were you can see prehistoric Lizards

I love Porta del Sol tourism area. The breeze of the sea, gastronomical restaurant and the great beaches makes a paradise of the west coast. My favorite place was La Parguera in Lajas, great music and the bay is so smashing.
