Balneario Monserrate, often referred to simply as Luquillo Beach, is a long cresent of fine sand, with plenty of mature palm trees for shade, and El Yunque National Forest in the background. Due to a fringing reef, there are no waves to speak of, so...more

Get your car ready, blanket, suntan oil, towels& chair, if you want! Water is beautiful! Horseback riders ride the beach! Lots of small shops, serving food, cocktails and selling gifts! Enjoy the relaxing day 😊
We were exploring the area and ended up parking on the street by Playa Fortuna (right next to Luquillo Beach). We walked along the soft sand and found Luquillo Beach. The beach area was quite spacious. There was a designated swimming area and a stand...More
This is a great local beach with plenty of parking and calm waters. It costs $5 to enter the park. There’s a local strip of restaurants next door that serve local cuisine at great prices. If you want a great beach to visit this is...More
Visited Luquillo beach in June with the wife and two daughters after spending 5 nights in Rincon. The beach was beautiful, with crystal clear water. We rented a jet ski for an hour for @ $100. Ate lunch ant drank Medalla at the Kiosk's. Locals...More
After exploring in El Yunque, we drove over here to get some pinchos and enjoy this famous beach. Parking is a doozy but we went late and were able to find a great spot right on the beach. The trick is getting to the Food...More
The beach here is nice second visit in last couple of years. Water is good after hurricanes last year. However you have to pay for the bathrooms and changing areas and that’s a rip off. The last actually kept an extra $8 of mine. Don’t...More

I traveled around the whole Northern Coast from east to west and not once did I see any parasailing. Some people were kite surfing in Condado, but that's the closest thing that I saw. Kayaking is most often done around Bio Bay, on the east coast of the island where you can see Algae glow at night if the conditions are right (which they were not when I was there). I did not notice any Jet Ski's either.
If you have any other questions, let me know. You can also check out my trip on YouTube at Josh the Travel Guy. All my Puerto Rico videos are there. It may give you a few ideas of places you may want to see when you go! Enjoy the trip!
Day Trip to Humacao, Yabucoa & Maunabo (6 Replies)
My wife and I will be taking our two kids (6 & 8) to PR next month. We will be staying at the El Conq for five nights and then over to Vieques for three days. While staying at the El Conq we plan to do half day trips to El Yunque one day and Luquillo beach another. We are also considering driving up and around the Maunabo which we heard is very scenic. In that area we would likely stop at the Punta Tuna Lighthouse and maybe eat lunch at a restuarant called Bella Vista or another called...More

I just recommended this drive to another poster. It is beautiful, but allow a bit more time to have lunch and get back. The pool will still be there if you get back later.
First trip itinirary -- advice needed please! (2 Replies)
I will be traveling to San Juan May 20-24 with DH and 5yr old son. It's our first trip there and we want to experience as much of the "real" PR as possible.

Thursday -- arrive in afternoon 4pm. check into ESJ head to Santurce, hang out at la Placita, dinner at Bebos. Friday -- drive to Catano, take ferry to OSJ. back to Catano visit Bacardi rum...More

Need help planning 2nd trip to PR! (2 Replies)
Hi! My family of 4 (2 children ages 15 and 12) visited PR 2 years ago and loved it! At that time, we rented Villa Sevilla in Rio Grande, not far from the rainforest. Sadly, Wally and Marina no longer own it and it's not being rented any longer. The first trip we went to El Yunque, the Biobay, Luquillo Beach and the kiosks, horseback riding, Old San Juan and the forts....we did a lot but there's so much more to see! We're coming at the end of February. I'm trying to decide where to...More

If you already found a good price on airfare, I would strongly recommend that you go ahead and make the purchase. Flight prices change by so often, it's best to secure a reasonable rate. You can always find your lodging later. With so many hotels and rentals, you won't have a problem finding a place to stay. Because everything you want is so far apart, I think San Juan is the most convenient area for you. Rincon is located almost 3 hours west of San Juan, and as you already know, the east...More
