Richard and Maria made us feel very welcome at their fully furnished, well situated beach apartment in Luquillo. We started our days with dips in the sea from the beach that is steps from their front door and ended our days enjoying grilled fish on their lovely rooftop terrace. Everything we needed for an excellent vacation was provided--from beach towels and chairs to boogey boards and foam noodles. The drive from SJU was short and easy, and our group of three girlfriends had an excellent time at the beach--swimming, sunbathing, and surfing in Luquillo. We ran out of time to snorkel even though the snorkels were right there in the living room for us to borrow, but did make the short drive to El Yunque rain forest.
