Awesome Place for a Vacation!
My wife found Casa Mac on the VRBO website, and based on the stellar reviews of the house, we came to Rincon and spent an amazing week here with our kids and in-laws. The house is as awesome as it looks in the pictures. The beach was perfect, the sunsets were unbelieveable and the town was a lot of fun. All of the people we encountered were very friendly and helpful.
The house is very well maintained and has everyting you will need as far as equipment is concerned. John, the owner, was home upstairs during our stay and was a wealth of information on the local restaurants and places to shop for food and other sundries that you will need during your stay. I can't say enough about how friendly and welcoming he was and how genuinely interested he is in making your stay as fun and comfortable as possible.
While you are there, make sure you walk down to the Villa Cofresi Hotel and have a Pina Colada at the bar, and order Pyratas to go, and bring them back to the house and enjoy them while you watch an awsome sunset. I don't know whats in them but boy are they good! The EC bakery makes great breakfast. Try a medianoche sandwich and the empanadas. Mr. Donut makes donuts that are to die for except they don't open until 10 oclock am so you will need to buy them the night before. The liquor store at the Bonaire plaza has cold beer, whereas the grocery stores just have it warm. There are plenty of good restaurants in town for dinner, just ask John for his recs.
If you have kids, the zoo in Mayaguez is really excellent and has a lot of animals and birds and it is very reasonable. We also drove up to Isabella and went to Jobos beach and the Pozo Jacinto blowhole, which was really cool to see. We also ate at Sonja Ricans. a beach shack that I saw on Tony Bourdain. The shrimp mofongo was the best I have ever had and eating it right on the beach just added to the experience.
My advice to anyone renting at Casa Mac is to try food from the roadside carts and vendors. Drink a Medalla Light, they are really refreshing on a hot afternoon and they go great with Puerto Rican food. Try the local coffee and buy a loaf of pan agua at a bakery and eat it with plenty of butter, and lastly bring PLENTY of sunscreen and USE it, as the sun is incredibly powerful and the breeze keeps the temperature down to a deceptivly cool level so you can burn badly without realizing it.
If you want a great vacation in an awsome location, Casa Mac is the place!
