Beaches

Get up early and plan to be here by 8 or 9 to get the most out of this beach. Absolutely gorgeous in the morning! Only 20 minutes from Bnb. Crash boat beach is a must-see while staying on the West side! Crystal clear water, white sand, and lots of food/drink vendors make this beach a wonderful place to spend the day! We’ve seen dolphins, sea turtles, and manitees off the end of the pier, and the snorkeling is magical here.

This is the closest beach to the Bnb, located about 5 minutes drive from where you’re staying. Plenty of little bars and restaurants within walking distance make this a nice spot to check out in the evening before or after dinner and it’s the start of Ocean Blvd which is about a mile long stretch of road the runs along the ocean. Take a stroll and enjoy the sights along this road. It turns into a lively party stretch on the weekends too if your interested in checking out some Puerto Rican nightlife. Convenient and close to the Bnb so no worries about driving too far to get there or back.

A breathtaking place to get gorgeous photos! Located along the high cliffs in Cabo Rojo, this lighthouse is a great spot to see while visiting this side of the island. It’s about a 60 minute drive from the Bnb but worth the drive. Close to Playa Buye, you might consider checking this place out after going to Buye in the morning. Playa Sucia is located at the base of the hill leading up to the lighthouse and a pretty beach to check out as well.

Waterfall

You have to see this place! Two beautiful waterfalls on the same river. About a 45 min drive from Bnb. Swim in the cool water and jump from the rope swing! Short hike but worth every step. It’s a paved hike so nothing terribly difficult. Lots of stairs to get down to the first falls though so just something to be aware of if stairs are difficult for you. Wear water shoes or nonslip soles as the rocks by the falls do get slick. Gorgeous place! Plan to get there by 8-9am as it does get crowded later in the morning/day. Paid parking lot ($10) and and bar/restaurant on the property to eat at after your hike.
