Uniquely Rincon (Mon, 23 Mar 2015)
We are always saying how unique Rincon is and we aren't the only ones to say that. Even within Puerto Rico, a most beautiful Island with welcoming people and customs, Rincon is uniquely different and your Rincon Beachfront Vacation Rental is one of the most unique vacation rentals in Rincon! Taken from "My Puerto Rico Concierge: Your guide to exploring the Island of Enchantment!" online blog we give you Rincon ..... The other Puerto Rico: Rincon Colorful boat on Los Almendros beach Rincon is a totally unique destination: appealing to surfers, families, couples, singles, friends, nature seekers, sun seekers, modern day hippies, budget travelers, weekenders from San Juan, and those who love to explore. I call it “the other Puerto Rico” because of its distinctly different ambiance highly influenced by the surfer population. The Rincon lighthouse (El Faro in Spanish) has a beautiful park with great sea views Black Eagle beach or Marina beach the sandy curve of Black Eagle beach where boats also are launched. Several bars and eateries are located nearby in walking distance including the very recommended La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle. Here the Chef has created a menu including small plates or large plates which are very well executed and prepared with taste and presentation on a par with best of upscale restaurants in world cities. Wednesday evenings at the outside patio bar become quite lively, mainly with an American surfer crowd mixed with tourists playing bingo. It’s a totally unexpected thing to find here on the island of Puerto Rico. .....The mood is very laid back. You’ll find that shorts, t shirt and flip flops are de rigeur wherever you go here. This is definitely not the case in the San Juan area where locals tend to dress better than the tourists. Here, you can feel very comfortable in your Havaianas or sandals day or night. Tapas at La Copa Llena Enjoy organic, garden fresh food at La Carta Buena Rincon’s situation on a piece of land which juts out of the northeast corner of the island owes to its popularity for both beach goers and surfers. The surfers frequent the northern perimeter of Rincon’s shoreline as these are the beaches on the Atlantic side with more wind and waves, creating perfect conditions for the sport. The names of the beaches are unique like Domes, Steps, Maria’s or Sandy Beach. The calmer waters of the Caribbean side are on the beaches nearer the town center.
The topography of Rincon is of rolling green cow pastures and low lying beachfront communities, with one large hill which one must climb in order to cross from the town area to the Punta area where you a strip of inns, shops, bars and restaurants as well as some businesses which cater to the surfers and the health minded crowd. It’s not hard to find health food, vegetarian cuisine, and yoga practitioners in this area of Puerto Rico. There’s even a food truck called La Carta Buena which makes natural juices and garden fresh food which is currently very popular as an alternative to the fried foods commonly offered on many menus. Cow pastures near Steps beach Exotic lagoon at Los Almendros beach Ask anyone in Rincon for their recommendation for seafood and they will likely tell you to “go to La Cambija!” What’s La Cambija? It’s named after the street that it’s on, Calle Cambija, just steps away from the main part of Rincon town plaza. What can you expect of this restaurant? Freshest fish, empanadillas (fried turnovers) filled with either shrimp, lobster, fish, conch, meat, or even the hard-to-find lion fish! Lionfish is recently making the scene in the Caribbean but it’s not widely found on menus yet, due to the fact the the fins contain a poison which must be taken into account when preparing the fish for consumption. The Lionfish turnover at La Cambija was delicious and I’d recommend trying it! Lion Fish turnovers (empanadillas de pez leon) at La Cambija are worth trying Other points of interest in Rincon are “the lighthouse” and it’s well-groomed park with gorgeous views of the Desecheo island in the distance, surfers on the Domes beach below, and in winter, you may spy whales breaching in the sapphire blue waters surrounding this area. In one day in February, we saw several whales breaching and spouting in the distance, both from the lighthouse park as well as from Tamboo Bar deck on Sandy Beach. Tamboo Bar’s newly renovated deck now offers a delightful shaded position from which you can watch surfers and enjoy a cool tropical drink and a lunch, just steps from your beach towel. Sandy Beach is also the perfect place to look for shells and sea glass, as the waves tend to bring these to this beach more frequently than the calmer beaches of the Caribbean side of the Rincon point. Small treasures found on Sandy Beach Guanabana or soursop fruit Let yourself wander and discover on rural roads of Rincon! Enjoy your Rincon Vacation! //
