It looks nice on You Tube.

The climate seems pretty good Highs Dec-Feb of about 81 lows around 71. Is the rest of PR similar?

Is the swimming good there? or any different from the rest of the island?

I assume there are mosquitoes all over how bad is it?

Very good observation from just a YouTube video: Humacao REALLY IS NICE!


After first going to PR in the early 80's and many vacations to PR and other Caribbean Islands, my wife and I fell in love with Humacao as a really uniquely wonderful place. We even bought a vacation/retirement home last year. This was after 5 or 6 trips renting a car and driving all over the island. We decided we liked Humacao area best (town is about 50,000; metro about 100,000). Humacao has a really small town 1950's vibe, old Spanish-type square and beautiful church, marcado, etc, yet has a US-style master-planned Gulf community, if you are into that, and is only 45 minutes from downtown San Juan on a good limited-access freeway.


The climate seems pretty good Highs Dec-Feb of about 81 lows around 71. Is the rest of PR similar?
Typical nearly perfect climate. That's about right for winter temps and summer not much different - maybe 5d higher for each. This is typical coastal temps. Inland towns at 2000+ feet elevation and higher will be significantly cooler - esp winter night temperatures may be in the high 50s, low 60s. Our home isn't that high but it's on the top of a coastal low ridge and is significantly cooler and windier than at sea level in Humacao. Maybe 3 or 4 d lower and feels even more.

Is the swimming good there? or any different from the rest of the island?
Swimming is great year round - perfect water temps low 80's in summer, high 70's in winter. Off an on there is a problem with seaweed that has unfortunately impacted most of the Caribbean and Gulf last year or two.

I assume there are mosquitoes all over how bad is it?
There are mosquitoes but worse in the river bottoms and coast than hill tops like where we live. We really only have problems after a rain and if still (no breezes) for several days. This rarely happens.
