After a 2.5 week-long, eventful, action-packed, amazing honeymoon all over the Caribbean, my husband and I were a bit exhausted. On the way to TJ Ranch, I was about to have an emotional breakdown because of my over stimulated sensory organs reaction to the sheer beauty of yet another rain forest.... Once we arrived... utter tranquility and relaxation overcame my... More

We were visiting our good friends who spend several months each winter in Puerto Rico so they are very familiar with restaurants in the area. Upon arriving at the Ranch, we were given a short tour. I was stunned by all the natural beauty, as well as the charm of the various cottages, and said to the owner, "You have... More

My husband and I went to Puerto Rico for our honeymoon, and spent the week driving around the island and staying at several different places. TJ Ranch was hands down our favorite place that we stayed. We loved that it was completely off the beaten path (basically in the middle of the jungle) and not touristy at all. Joan and... More

TJ Ranch is paradise on earth. It was one of the best vacations we’ve ever had. The surroundings are breathtaking. The sounds of nature all around you. They have three cabins. All very similar and cute. The cabins are not luxurious but extremely comfortable. I honestly felt much more comfortable in the cabin than I have in some five star... More

Gotta love the location, set in a box canyon, surround by jungle. Joan, Toni and Tina are outstanding and willing to do whatever you need to make your stay memorable. Toni is very colorful and an excellent chef, whose meals almost rival Jose Enrique's in Santurace. (one of the best restaurants in Puerto Rico). Don't pass on the blackened dorado... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at TJ Ranch while exploring the nearby Rio Abajo State Forest. We are not "resort" people, and this place fit the bill - great food, convenient location, low-key but clean accommodations - but most of all, the warmth and hospitality of Joan and Tony. They were so gracious and happy to share their... More

From start to finish a wonderful experience! The ride to Utuado and TJ ranch one of the highlights- to see the interior of the island. Yes The SEACOAST is wonderful but venturing into the interior of the island eye-opening. The beauty of the soft, tree covered hills, the little towns with Spanish colonial architecture, Piraquas carts and ice cream carts... More

When you peruse the guest book at TJ Ranch, it's filled with people writing that they wish they had spent more than a couple of nights at the ranch. I was one of those people in 2012; three years later, I went back for four nights and have no regrets. Let's start with Juanita and Tony. You won't meet more... More

Without doubt, the highlight of our time on this beautiful, supremely friendly and much over-looked island was our time spent at TJ Ranch. Set in some of the most stunning scenery Puerto Rico has to offer, with a constant backdrop of forested limestone hills, the Ranch offers a secluded escape from the rigours of everyday life. Tony and Joan had... More

Friendliest hosts you have ever met! Tony and Joan made us feel so welcome. Our only complaint is that we didn't schedule more time to stay at the ranch. The food was great! The Breakfast was hardy and delicious. Based on pics you get what you expect with the cabins but nothing can beat the experience! The ranch is best... More
