If you have a big appetite order this one, this huge steak called the Tomahawk. Great atmosphere. Mostly outside dining. Music. We've been back several times. Chef knows how to please your palate. Wish I could add my own photos.

Nice beach with Thai restaurant nearby. You can see the river flowing into the sea if you walk alongside the beach for a couple of minutes. Pelicans flying past. Beautiful and peaceful place. You can go into the water but it has a small dip with pebbles and shells. Not suitable for small children. Gazebos for picnic with no parking fee.

Absolutely great beach. I'm told it was so much better before Maria. But, I think it's great. Peaceful to walk and swim or Snorkel, jump off the piers, watch the pelicans. Water is clear and clean. Great for scuba diving as well. Park for $3.75 or drive past the parking entrance and around to the other side of beach for free parking early in the morning. Still some damage to buildings from Maria. Sad really. You'll find locals with stands selling fresh coconuts, pinchos, ice cream and such. A nice place to hang out for the day.

Lovely place to visit with family, friends or strolling by yourself. Shopping, sightseeing, dining. Beautiful beaches and not too touristy even though it's a tourist place. Phosphorescent Bay excursions. Live music on weekends

An absolute must see experience when in Puerto Rico. There is nothing else like it and you will not be disappointed. A magical experience to be able to swim in the waters under the stars with the sparkling gold micro organisms glowing all around you. Cute little town to have dinner in and explore as well. There is a one-hour boat trip from the town square, and since it is bioluminescent, best viewing is after dark. Hurricane Maria apparently substantially reduced the number of organisms, but it is still interesting to see. At $10 for a one-hour boat ride, it is reasonably priced. Beachside surfer type feel area. You have lots of options for dinning, dancing and tours to take for the bioluminescent Bay. This area gets really busy in a fun way on Saturdays.

Arts & Culture
Historic Marker. This is the place where they honor the discovery of Borique Island, also known as Puerto Rico by the Spaniards. Admiral Christopher Columbus in the ships "La Nina", "La Pinta" y "La Santa Maria" in 1493, arrived at these beaches. Beautiful view with swimming beaches and a Pizza truck at the corner. Zumba classes weekly in the Pavillion.

Essentials
This is my favorite. You should find what you need here. Remember to bring your own grocery bags. Or they sell them at the store. All grocer's don't supply bags. Just take the road to the south of the house and go up the hill. Right, left and down the hill towards Burger King. Also for great Pizza you'll want to try Antonino's Pizza located in the same shopping area.

Located in Rincon next to The Harbor Restaurant. There is also an exceptional Barber in this small mall. Truly an Artist. Jim only goes to him. While I have the ice cream.
