Picture Perfect - snorkeling blue watersLocation and climate: The town of Luquillo is on the northeast coast of the island a short 35-55 minutes drive east of the San Juan Airport.  See map of driving directions. This town is famous for its public beach which is a short walk away from the Condos.  Walk west keeping the beach on your right side along the shore for about 10-15 minutes till you find "El Balneario de Luquillo".  A huge plantation of majestic coconut palms shades more than a mile of sandy golden beach.  This public beach has all the facilities including life guards, showers, dressing and rest rooms and plenty of parking.  Here you will also find 'Los Kioskos de The remaining architectural facade of the Matienzo Public SchoolLuquillo' and a wide variety of succulent sea food and Creole food and the best Puerto Rico Coffee in the world.  Luquillo is proud to have the only beach in the world with access for people with disabilities called "Mar sin Barreras".  Puerto Rico enjoys year-round warmth though cooler in the winter with an average annual 77ºF.  Dependable easterly trade winds keep the Luquillo area comfortable with sunny skies most of the time, and cooler temperatures especially at night when you might need a light jacket to go out and you might have to TURN OFF the A/Cs and close all the windows.  Dress casual, travel light.

Here you will find marinas where you can book a one day trip and go out with the locals to the best areas for your prize winner Blue Marlin.  If you like Thoroughbred horse racing you will find Hipodromo el Comandante on Highway 3 in the town of Canovanas.

NO PASSPORT REQUIRED  - Puerto Rico is the hassle-free escape of the Caribbean.  The new Homeland Security Regulations do no apply to Puerto Rico so pack lightly and take a quick weekend jaunt to recuperate in the sandy beach in Luquillo, or take the ferry to visit Vieques or Culebra Islands on a day trip. All within easy reach from your comfortable condo in Playa Azul.

Driving around and getting around Luquillo without a car could be difficult:  It's highly recommended that you avail yourself of a rental car at the Airport.  Although the easiest way to get here is taking a taxi at the taxi stand in the airport but you will need a car to get around and visit other areas and the rest of the island.
TRANSPORTATION: Direct non stop flights are available into San Juan International from all major US airports.  You will find all the major car rental agencies as well as local competitive agencies that are priced cheaper.  There are also Taxicabs and Public cars (publicos) which you can charter at a pre-agreed fare.

The following is very important about horses in Puerto Rico:
HORSEBACK RIDING:  There are several businesses nearby where you can rent horses.  We do not recommend any of them, including the ones recommended by the Department of Tourism of Puerto Rico, because of the exploitation and treatment of these animals.  We have seen horses that clearly show their malnutrition and neglect. These horses clearly show that they are objects utilized for the only purpose of generating a profit for these businesses.  These horses behave and are like robots that you don't even have to touch their reins to ride them.  There is no difference between these horses and the ones you climb on the merry go 'round carrousels All you have to do is mount them and they will automatically follow the horse in front and take you through the designated trail at the same speed; they will not go any faster or any slower; they just do their daily routine automatically. You will also find rampant animal abuse in P.R. that mostly include horses and dogs. In the case of horses it seems to be a general attitude that you can tie a horse in the same spot all day long under the tropical sun without water and food and expect that animal to live a healthy life and then ride it around until the poor horse can not take it any longer and collapse.
  Puerto Rico, U.S.A.  A tropical paradise in the Caribbean only 3 1/2 hours from NY-Newark airports and yet very similar to the mainland.  No need for passports because this is American territory protected by the same U.S. Constitution.  No need for costly tourist cards and no immigration lines and no customs inspections, except on your return to the mainland your luggage will be inspected by the U.S. Dept of Agriculture for unauthorized fruits.  You won't have to pay an exit tax.  No need for money exchange; we use the same monetary and banking systems, the same US Postal system, the same US Federal Courts and agencies and US Armed Forces.

Very important:  You might find life in Puerto Rico somewhat different than in other Latin countries.  We encourage you to be prepared and be open minded to experience a special kind of people and their everyday life.  A good example of this is the festive as well as the fanatical politics that seem so prevalent in the island.  It feels like we have a parade for just about every imaginable occasion.  All of the sudden you find yourself immersed in the deafening blaring of police, fire trucks, ambulances, tow trucks, cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and yes even tricycles equipped with sirens and air horns and emergency lights and pick up trucks equipped with sound blasting speakers transporting beauty pageants, political figures, religious leaders, sports figures, and the worse of all the new reggaeton culture.  Please I beg you to understand that this new and imported music of REGGAETON is by no means native of Puerto Rico.  The music of Puerto Rico can't be compared with this noise.  This is nothing more than a detraction from the norm and imported from the GHETTOS of the mainland combined with the rhythm of Afro-Caribbean and it gives a sour taste of the good music and way of life in Puerto Rico.  We are very proud of our heritage and culture and hope that you benefit from that experience and respect our freedoms and way of life.

There are many excellent places to stay in Luquillo
Sabías que el nombre de Luquillo se deriva del dios Taíno Yukiyú (el señor de las tormentas) que habitaba en el Yunque.
