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.” //

Hollywood Hits Rincon as Mad Dogs (Mon, 20 Oct 2014)
For the last couple weeks in Rincon you could catch several actors at the bars, beaches and Sunday Farmers Market. That is because Amazon is using Rincon as the filming location for it's drama pilot "Mad Dogs". During this time one of the actors, Romany Malco, was using his public facebook page to show off all the beauty of Puerto Rico (which was fun to see). Although they 'say' the location is Belize - it is really Rincon Puerto Rico - essentially the same beauty you enjoy from your Rincon Vacation Villa Rental! Here is some scoop from the Hollywood Reporter ... The streaming service (Amazon) has tapped Steve Zahn, Romany Malco and Ben Chaplin to star in Shawn Ryan's adaptation of Mad Dogs, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Mad Dogs, from Sony Pictures Television, centers on four former frat brothers who travel to Belize for a reunion with their wealthy old college friend only to have their luxury vacation interrupted by murder, conspiracy and a psychotic gang lord who is out for their hides. Zahn will play Cobi, a 40ish, married financial adviser described as a slick and amusing guy who is fighting the onset of middle age by dressing a little too young, complete with his blond highlights and Abercrombie style. He joins his old pals, Gus (Malco), Lex and Joel (Chaplin), for the jaunt to Belize to visit wealthy friend Milo. The Sopranos alum Michael Imperioli has joined the cast of Amazon's Shawn Ryan drama pilot Mad Dogs It seems the filming has stopped for now. But if we hear or see any activity we will let you know. Enjoy your Rincon Vacation! //

Rincon Trolley Car aka Rincon Trans (Wed, 15 Oct 2014)
Actual Rincon Trolley The City of Rincon Puerto Rico NOW has two of these beautifully big & air conditioned Trolley cars that can take you around Rincon. These Trolleys are a new addition to our lovely surf town. They don't have a set schedule or route that we know of yet, but we will continue to research and keep you posted. Last Season these Rincon Trolleys went from your Rincon Vacation Villa Rental area, through downtown, by Tres Palmas up the 413 to Puntas, around Sandy Beach and then back to downtown past the Post Office (not the same way they came up). We are assuming they will have a similar route this Season. Ask any local Rincon business for the posted Trolley schedule because when the city makes them available they will be posted! It's a great causal way to see all the beautiful spots in Rincon! Enjoy your Rincon Vacation! //
