Good day sunshine
With eternal sunshine, inland hiking and adventuring, delicious Caribbean cuisine, and easy travel from San Juan and the US, Rincón makes for a getaway that is equal parts remarkable and removed.
Rincon first made the map as a quirky, off-the-beaten-path surf destination after the 1968 World Surfing Championships were held in the town. Even the Beach Boys band gave the town a shoutout in their classic Surfing Safari song. Despite its recent increase in popularity, it has maintained an authentic, small town vibe that is tough to duplicate. On any given day you’ll encounter local islanders lounging on the beach next to tanned ex-pats and visiting snowbirds. The variety of dining, hotel and activity options draws visitors from both the island and from around the globe.
The surf scene really sets Rincon apart from many other destinations. The quality and variety of the waves is frequently compared to the infamous North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. The signature break at Tres Palmas in Rincon often draws big wave surfers from around the globe, while the variety of smaller surf breaks gives newbies a great place to learn any time of year. If waves aren’t your thing, grab a Standup Paddleboard and head to Rincon’s Caribbean coast for a relaxing early morning paddle.
The global climate in Rincon is fast making this small town a foodie destination for the West Coast of Puerto Rico. An influx of clients and ex-pats from the mainland United States and Europe has ignited somewhat of a food revolution in Rincon in the recent years. From local Criollo fare and fresh fish to Asian and Thai influenced establishments, modern Caribbean fusion, sushi, Spanish tapas, Mexican, Argentinean, Northern Italian, and even German cuisine can be found within the town limits. The Rincon Beer Company, Rincon’s first craft brewery opened in 2013 and a host of unique and healthy food carts with eclectic offerings have begun to dot the streets. Whatever your style, we can guarantee you won’t go hungry in Rincon.
While the white sands and warm water is what first draws most people to Rincon, it’s the adventure beyond the shore that often keeps them coming back year after year. Get wet on seafaring adventures such as parasailing, catamaran tours, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing or deep sea fishing. Or, stay on-shore and enjoy horseback riding trips, ATV tours, guided hikes, mountain biking, and more. Within a short drive of Rincon, the entire West coast of Puerto Rico is at your fingertips, including access to caving, ziplining, waterfall tours, eco-adventure and the bioluminescent bay at La Parguera. Picturesque towns dot the Western coastline and make for great day trips after you’ve met your quota of rum punch and tanning time.
