Rincon loves being small, unique and 'local' so it is easy for us who love Rincon to say BD Cafe is better than Starbucks. You will have to judge for yourself! Starting Nov 1st 2014 BD Cafe will be one of the few locally owned and operated Rincon Businesses that is open daily (this is an Island after all).

North American SUP Destination Rincon, Puerto Rico (Sun, 26 Oct 2014)
Photo by Angelo Cordero Grab up to 28 of your friends to stay and SUP at your Rincon Vacation Villa Rental. Voted the best North American SUP Destination Rincon Puerto Rico! Straight from SUP the Magazine ..... With over 15,000 residents and more than eight miles of coastline, Rincón is a seaside paradise, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Known as the “Town of Beautiful Sunsets” or “The Surfing Capital,” the quaint town of Rincón is a lot more than that. For standup paddling, the north side offers strong trade winds, perfect for an afternoon downwind session. You can also paddle flat water on the south side over the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve and, if you’re lucky, enjoy a paddle with manatees, dolphins or sea turtles. The marine life is beautiful and abundant, so make sure you take your snorkeling gear with you! A bar-hopping paddle tour is always a possibility with lots of world-class bars, hotels and restaurants right along the coastline, where you can enjoy fresh seafood, great steaks and sip on exotic rum drinks served in coconuts. Puerto Rican cuisine is also out of this world. If you want to understand any culture, go try their food. From very rustic to sophisticated, try pinchos, empanadillas, rice & beans and mofongo, just a few of the local favorites. And don’t worry about the calories, a good paddle will take care of that! Enjoy your Rincon Vacation //

Rincon as Some Locals See It (Thu, 23 Oct 2014)
This is from a cute article from the online Winter New York Travel 2014 By Joshua David Stein .. Enjoy For the past 21 years, surf instructor Ramse Morales has been riding Rincón’s legendary barrel waves and the occasional 25-foot swells. Here are his favorites, from tyro to kamikaze. EASY: “Sandy’s Beach, on the north side, has a sandy bottom—hence the name—and mild waves, which make it perfect for a beginner.” INTERMEDIATE: “Don’t be put off by the nuclear reactor atDomes. This spot, just north of the lighthouse on the westernmost tip, sits in the shadow of a decommissioned nuclear-reactor facility we call the Dome. The waves are hollow, fun, and ledgy. There’s a point break, though, so be aware of the undercurrents.” ADVANCED: “The powerful waves at Indicador, the locals-only beach just south of the Dome, are hard and close.” WAY ADVANCED: “Tres Palmas, on the southern edge of Rincón, has the biggest breakers in the Caribbean, with a legendary right-hand reef break. Don’t paddle out here unless you’re a pro or kamikaze.” Rum, and Then Some More than 70 percent of the rum consumed in the United States comes from Puerto Rico—but that’s not to say that’s all there is to swill, especially in Rincón. Lifestyle blogger (and marine scientist) Chelsea Harms gives a tour through the local drinkscape. RUM “If you’re going to get one rum drink, go with the Coco Pirata atVilla Cofresi (12 Carretera 115; 823-2450), made with Bacardi White, Bacardi Gold, Bacardi 151, crème de cacao, and evaporated milk. Drink it out of its coconut shell while snacking on pinchos (meat skewers) and watching the sun set over the Caribbean Sea.” FIZZY WINE “Sip a surprisingly refreshing Tinto Verano (red wine and lemon soda) at La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle (Black Eagle Marina; 823-0896), which happens to have the best food in town. Their menu changes frequently; the fish curry is always super-fresh.” BEER “The craft-beer scene is really blooming on the west coast. The Rincón Beer Company (15 Calle Muñoz Rivera; 407-0121) just opened downtown, serving local beers like the Barlovento Ale from Manati, P.R. It’s a local hangout, especially on Thursday nights when it stays open late to accommodate our art walk through town.” JUICE “The best juices in Rincón—passion-fruit-mint iced tea and fresh orange juice—are at a small inn called La Rosa Inglesa (413 Carretera Bo. Ensenada; 823-4032), which also has the best breakfast: Get the eggs Benedict topped with salmon.” //
