Rincón Surf School
Located in the heart of Rincón, Puerto Rico is just minutes from Casa Verde. Offering lessons for beginners and intermediates as well as guiding and coaching for advanced surfers, it’s the #1 activity on Trip Advisor In Rincón.
Surfing in Puerto Rico combines incredible waves with a rich island culture only hours from the U.S. East Coast. Better yet, there’s no passport required! Whether you’re looking for surf camps, traditional group surf lessons or just some recommendations for lodging in Rincón, we can help. Surfing in Rincón Puerto Rico is what we do every day and we’re excited to show you all that Rincón has to offer.
Scuba Diving Desecheo
Taino Divers offer daily trips to nearby Desecheo Island (weather permitting) for snorkeling, scuba diving and discover scuba diving. Divers meet at the shop at 7:30 a.m., which is located a few steps from the boat at the Black Eagle Marina in Rincón. The ride to the island takes about 35 minutes and boats anchor at two different sites, based on the day’s conditions.
Snorkel and dive gear are available for sale or rent at Taino Dive Shop! The shop and boats are located at the Rincón Marina, just minutes from anywhere in the Rincón area and at the southern tip of the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve.
San Sebastian Waterfalls
If you are one of those adventurous types or if the waves go flat while you are in Rincón, you should visit one of the waterfalls that are close by. Cascada means “waterfall” in Spanish. It’s actually a small waterfall. To experience a large waterfall, you need a “catarata.”
The pool is deep enough that some people jump off of the rocks into the water. There is also a small underwater “cave” on the right of the waterfall that people swim into all the time. Inside, there is a good-sized secret air pocket above it where one can surface and breathe. Go under/over a locked chain holding a gate mostly closed. Then follow the muddy, narrow footpath down through the cow field.
For the thrill-seekers in the bunch, parasailing 500 feet above the Rincón Puerto Rico waters is the perfect way to get an afternoon adrenaline rush. Fly high above the sunset coast of Rincón and catch a glimpse of sea turtles, dolphins and whales all from a vantage point like none other.
Non-swimmers can enjoy the tour as well because parasailing requires no special skills or age limits. Just sit back and enjoy the ride! The newest addition, Parasail & Snorkel Tour, is a one-of-a-kind adventure that allows you to see the best of Rincón from above and below the water.
Domes Nuclear Plant
This Boiling Nuclear Superheater Reactor (BONUS), one of only two BONUS reactors built by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, which ran from 1965 until 1968 when it was decommissioned due to cost issues. Today, the domed reactor overlooks one of Puerto Rico’s best year round surfing beaches and is surrounded by hiking and walking trails.
Rincón Lighthouse & Park
In addition to stunning views of Domes Beach, Indicators Beach and Desecheo Island, this park offers one of the best spots to watch the sunset or catch migrating humpback whales on their journey back to the North Atlantic for the summer.
Mayaguez Resort and Casino
Try your luck at a dazzling casino featuring slot machines, roulette, blackjack, craps, Texas Hold'em Poker and more. For non-gamers, two superb restaurants and a sensational tropical river pool village mean there’s truly something for everyone.
Estadio Isidoro "El Cholo" García (Baseball Stadium)
Baseball is Puerto Rico’s most popular sport and the island’s season heats up every winter from November through January. In addition to the top Puerto Rican players, you’ll see plenty of Major Leaguers from the U.S. as they hone their skills and stay in shape during their offseason. The local nine, Los Indios de Mayaguez, plays their home games at Estadio Isidoro "El Cholo" García, which is located just a short drive from the hotel.
Guinica Dry Forest Reserve
Head to Puerto Rico’s southern coast to explore the world’s largest remaining tropical dry coastal forest. Home to 700 plant species, of which 48 are endangered and 16 can be found nowhere else in the world, the Reserve is also the island’s largest bird habitat.
