We are fortunate to be located in a very special area of Puerto Rico! First of all, we’re on the northeastern coast of the Island in the small town of ‘Luquillo’. Just a stone’s throw away from our ‘La Pared’ Beach – a mile-long, golden sand beach lined with palm trees.
Then there are beaches, beaches and more beaches!
No other coastline in Puerto Rico has beaches that compare to those of the Northeastern Ecological Corridor. Each beach has a different personality! Learning to surf, hard-core, gentle snorkeling, or just hanging out…there’s a beach for each day of the week! All are within hiking distance or short car rides.
