Day trip to Cabo Rojo

How long a drive is it from Rincon to La Playuela? Looks like at least an hour, is it worth the drive? is there a shorter drive to a similar beach? BTW, we will be with a 6 year old and a 1 year old...Thanks in advance!

It is worth the ride. The panoramic views from the old spanish lighthouse and the cliffs that drop dramatically 200 feet is incredible. It is one of my favorite places in PR. Also La Playuela Beach below is one of the few white sand beaches in Puerto Rico and one of the best because it is undeveloped. Do not go on a weekend or a holiday for it can get crowded. There are no facilities there, so bring everything you need with you. There is a parador (Inn) with a restaurant on the road just before the reserve.

Hello leo,

PRexlorer, is correct the day trip is very much worth the drive,

Thnaks you guys, curious if one could charter a day trip on a boat from Rincon down there? Maybe with a snorkle stop along the way? BTW, we will be there the first week in June, can not wait!

I failed to mention that my avatar has a partial photo of the cliffs at Cabo Rojo lighthouse.

It is beautiful and scenic there! There is a walk up to the lighthouse which if you take your time, your little 6yr. should make it. The beach is a bit of walk too but it is well worth it. A hidden gem we didn't know was there.

I also agree with everything said earlier!

The drive down is very easy, but if you go you may want to pick a weekday when it isn't so crowded. Especially Playa Sucia, which is a local favorite.

The water is calm enough for a 1 & 6 yr old as well & that is harder to find in Rincon.

Enjoy!
