Steve Jermanok’s Active Travels: Surfing Rincon, Puerto Rico

Rincon

The best views of Puerto Rico come from the water. Watching the palms
sway, seeing horseback riders galloping along the beach, and eyeing
lighthouses as they stand tall, sending their beacon of light over the
ocean waters. This is especially true if you’re on a board surfing
Rincon. Called the “Caribbean Pipeline,” surfers from America, Europe,
and South America flock to the western tip of Puerto Rico to glide atop
the consistently large swell at spots like Maria’s, a monstrous reef
break.

The problem with Rincon was always the crime. Come back from a
morning of surfing and your room is broken into. So it’s a joy to
finally find a place that’s not only safe, clean, and serves delicious
local food (included in the price), but is owned by a world-class
Brazilian surfer. Roger Wagner’s six-bedroom villa, Surf 787,
is perched on a hillside with water views just west of town. Depending
on your level of expertise, he’ll guide you to the best surf spots
within a 40-minute drive. Or you can venture out on your own,
especially in the early morning hours when the local contingent of
surfers are usually sleeping in after hitting the bars. December to
April is the best time to surf Rincon. Check out the surf report, grab a flight into Aguadilla, and you could be on the water today! Visit ActiveTravels.

    you know to make coments like that that your room is broken into. is just ignorant. you need to stay away from puerto rico. people like you are not welcome. if you don’t have something positive just negative stay home. you must have had a reason for going there.

    Rincon is beautiful!!! i just got married at their lighthouse 2 months ago. i don’t think his comments were meant to be hurtful. there is crime everywhere that has tourists flocking. my tablet and cell phone were stolen from my balcony on the second floor but that will not stop me from loving Rincon. i plan to move there next year with my wife. I have never felt so at home when i was driving the streets of Rincon. i had things stolen from me at home in New Jersey also. Rincon in my opinion is very safe… just local punks that see opportunities to make a little money. All they did was make me stay off my cell and tablet and enjoy the area more. this place is a must see!!! enjoy everyone.
