Uncrowded Paradise

Stay in Puerto Rico this winter season and visit the El Yunque National forest and our beautiful beaches nearby in Luquillo. I went out with Simonne today to visit Luquillo's beaches and see how ready they are for visitors from the frozen north. We know the Rainforest Inn is ready as we cleaned-up the first couple of weeks after the hurricane.

If you come visit Puerto Rico now you will be able to have the unique experience of visiting Luquillo Beach in high season without a soul around. I was there on a Sunday afternoon (a cool misty day) and Simonne and I had the beach all to ourselves.

 Boardriders is a famous surf bar in Luquillo right on the beach. They serve the best mahi-mahi fish tacos and bushwhackers. They, like many other great local places to eat, are open for business after Maria.

We also stopped at Balneario Monserrate, the well-known public beach near the "kioskos" of Luquillo.  The main gates were locked and the area near the road looked bad with some fallen trees and brush but a small gate was open and Simonne and I walked right in, stepped over the brush, and walked down to that beautiful beach. It was so incredible to be on this public beach without another person. The coconut palms are all still in a row (this was once a coconut plantation) and the beach and water was very clean and inviting even on a cloudy day.

Off in the distance you can see a couple of people also walking on this beautiful beach. Imagine visiting such a popular location with no crowds! When you stay at the Rainforest Inn we will tell you about some of our favourite places to visit and traveller's tricks that you can use to make your touring really special.

It is even more uncrowded and peaceful at the Rainforest Inn. Everything is green again. The jungle is returning. Our private trail is inviting and we are making many improvements to it.
