We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Insider Guide to Rincon

Henley Vazquez

Gina Bradley may be known as the SUP queen of the Hamptons thanks to her amazing Paddle Diva shop in East Hampton, but she's quickly become our go-to gal for all things Rincon as well. She recently expanded her shop to this hip Caribbean surf destination, and she agreed to spill all her local secrets. We can't wait to sneak down for a visit.


Stay

  • Value: ­ for a bargain, try Casa Verde, which was featured on Hotel Impossible. 
  • Cool: ­ Beach House is the new hip spot in Rincon.  
  • Classic: Casa Islena is a cute inn on the beach.
  • Villa Rental: ­ Casa Hines has eleven rooms and a big pool, and it's right on the beach. 

Eat 


Do 

  • Tweens and Teens: For older kids, there's a huge range of activities, especially if they like a little adventure. Try parasailing, take an eco-tour with Paddle Diva, or gallop on the beach with Pintos R Us horseback riding adventures.
  • School Age: buy a daypass to Rincon Beach Resort, have lunch and enjoy! 
  • Babies and Toddlers:The Marina beach is calm and good for smaller swimmers, or hire a sitter from Mamma Mel's while you hit the bigger waves
  • The Whole family: take a surf lesson with the team at Albert Lash's Road To Happiness surfing and tours. This outfit is the safest, insured and most experienced. And the added bonus is that they are at Maria's Beach and Sandy's beach, the best surfing spots for beginners! 


Noteworthy 

  • Thursday Night ArtWalk: where artisans show and sell their wares in the main plaza 
  • Sunday Farmer’s Market: this morning market has great organic goods; don't miss the Sana Farm Stand across from the Rincon Post Office for veggies and other produce
  • Steps Beach: the BEST snorkeling in the Caribbean 
  • El Faro: this lighthouse is one of the oldest in PR and it's a great place for watching the surfers and the yearly humpback whale migrations

Local Tips

  • Try a Pincho: it’s a staple in PR it is basically “meat on a stick” (I love the ones at Steps Quick Bar) 
  • Find a Limber Lady: This is Puerto Rico’s version of an ice. It could change your world.
  • Rescue a Sato: donate, foster or transport an adopted stray dog

Shop

  • Art Gallery: Playa Ouest for tropical surf art
  • Casual Fashion: Unchartered in Rincon Square for t-shirts and silk screening 
  • Surf Shop: Playero on 115 or Skudin at the Beach House 
  • Great Gift Shops: Mango Beach or Red Door, both along Sandy’s beach
