Luquillo, Puerto Rico
Typical 'pueblo' beach house only steps from Luquillo town plaza and one block to the 'la pared' beach which is one of Puerto Rico's favorite 'town beaches' and the center of east coast surfing.

This is one of the best values for a house so close to the beach. Many nearby 'beachfront' condos require elevators, lobbies and longer walks to beach. Condos are great for people who want a 'gated experience' - this house is for people looking for a truly local experience in the center of a Puerto Rican beach town.

NOTE: The base rate is for one or two guests in One Bedroom. If you have 3 or 4 guests then we will unlock a second bedroom - it can either be one king bed or two single beds. If you have two people who each want their own bedroom - send me a note so I can adjust the rate.

Location is great; right off the beach and 20 minutes from el yunque. The place is very cute and was exactly what I was looking for. It was small, but had everything that necessary for our stay. There were lots of great food options nearby and within walking distance too. Its very much in a 'typical' puerto rican town, which...

How to get there
Airport: SJU: 26.1 mi
Ferry: Fajardo: 7.5 mi
From the airport - follow signs for Carolina.
You will come to a point where the highway divides into Rt 3 and Rt 66.
You can take either one in the direction to Rio Grande.
Rt 3 is a local divided road lined with strip malls and local businesses - it takes about 15-20 minutes longer due to stop lights - but there is no toll.
Rt. 66 is an expressway with two tolls - but no stop lights so it can be much faster.
Both roads meet up again in Rio Grande and you'll continue to Luquillo.
I'll send detailed directions after you confirm your booking.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 0.1 mi.
