Hello all, I wasn’t sure where to post this because Puerto Rico doesn’t have its own folder. I’m looking for a nice affordable hotel or cottage that has its own kitchen. My husband and I are semi-vegetarian, and we love to cook healthy meals. I’ve been searching on cheapcaribbean.com and it doesn’t seem to have that option.

Can anyone recommend me any good places with kitchnettes?

Has anyone rented vacation apartments from Craigslist? Thank you!

Palmas Del Mar along the east coast has all types of lodging and recreation. It's about 45 minutes from San Juan.

Default Use Caution When Swimming At Condado Beach

Moderator cut: orphaned
Of the three major beach areas in the tourist strip of San Juan(Condado, Ocean Park and Isle Verde), I have heard that Condado has the strongest undertow of the three. When I went there two years ago, I ran into a couple of people staying at hotels near Condado. They could not go swimming because the waters were kind of rough(this was mid-August). Isla Verde,from my understanding has calmer waters. I stayed near Ocean Park and the waters seemed moderately rough at times.

If you want to go to the beach in Puerto Rico, you either go to Cabo Rojo (West on Hwy 2 past Mayaguez, west side of the island), or Luquillo (east going towards Fajardo).

There's also a beach called Los Tubos, which is off of Hwy 2 west, about 45 minutes from San Juan. Once you get to Toa Alta, keep looking at the signs (you really have to pay attention because the signs are few and far between). When you see the sign, make a right off Hwy 2 (north), and follow the road. It will take you to a beautiful secluded beach which is protected by a row of rocks so the water flows over and in between the rocks, creating a very calm pool af beautiful blue water.

Only locals and natives know about this one.

Take pictures, you will enjoy it.

Mid-August is in the heart of the hurricane season. so any little disturbance to the north is going to make the seas rough. As long as you stay in shallow waters you should be fine. May I suggest the most beautiful beach in PR? Playa Flamenco, in Culebra. You take a ferry there from Fajardo. The ferry is about $4.50 roundtrip and a $4 shuttle to the beach. It is worth it!!! i'll try to post some photos...

I totally agree with purtex. Being from Puerto Rico too, this is the most beautiful beach in PR. You can also stay in that island for a few days as there are all kinds of places to stay. It is a peaceful little island where you will find fresh seafood galore!!
