Must Do Activities: Number One-do it! Spend time at the beach and relax, swim, surf, fish........all within steps from the apartment.
You could walk for hours or miles of rock climbing along the ocean.....and visit secluded beaches....sunbath....or just Relax.
Out On The Island!!!!: Number Two-don't miss it! Go to El Viejo San Juan (the old city). Figure a full day and if you are hungry a bit of the evening will help and you will miss the rush hour traffic and be ready for a culinary pleasure. This 500 year old walled city was colonized 125 years before the Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts! Once there go to El Morro and San Cristobal Fortresses, El Morro, built at the harbor entrance was last in service during the Second World War. Although it never saw action, it was protecting against German submarines. Walk the cobblestone streets, shop, visit galleries, and appreciate the colonial architecture. While there make a point to see the cathedral, the Puerta de San Juan (the San Juan gate), the Hotel El Convento, Casa Blanca (the White House) built for governor Ponce de Leon in the early 1500’s, La Fortaleza, the longest serving residence still in use by a “head of state”.
More to do....: Well you saw the old city, now let’s do more fun stuff! For the active person and family, take day long trips to the mountain towns of Utuado and Lares. In Utuado you can go to Dos Bocas Lake and hop on a ferry boat that will take you to restaurants across the lake to where you will taste the most exquisite local cuisine. Also in Utuado visit the Caguana Ceremonial Park ruins of the pre-colombian Taino Indians. Finally schedule an appointment to El Batey Zip Line (near the ceremonial park). On a day head towards route 129 and visit the Arecibo Ionspheric Radio Telescope and the town of Lares where a one day insurrection against Spain occurred in 1869.
This is a very nice apartment close to two very nice beaches, MAr Chiquita to go with your kids, snorkeling maybe or boogie-boarding, and Los Tubos, great for expert surfers or boogie-boards.
The apartment has everything you need, including washing machine and dryer, cooking tools, air conditioning... Our apartment on the 1st floor had no view, but the second floor has an ocean view. You will need a car for shopping and going out, but you will sleep peacefully
Beautifull beaches , so quiet, and pristine
A very well maintained property with an excellent location. Cuca and Arturo are very attentive and respond quickly to your requests. Place is very clean, and have everything you need, and is exactly as advertised. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or family trip, beaches like Mar Chiquita, and La Poza de las Mujeres, are one of the best beaches in PR. There are several beaches in the area for different activities like snorkeling, surfing, or just relax. We had a great time. Thanks for everything.
Get away from the tourist and enjoy a great local family beach. The property was fantastic, as was the location. The fact that the local beach was almost totally enclosed by rock walls made it a gentle, peaceful beach. My third trip to the island and I will go back to Manati. The owner was easy to deal with and I recommend the top floor for the view and ocean breezes.
This property was exactly what I was looking for , when booking a rental for two couples. We just enjoyed our spring break at this apartment and could not have asked for a better place. We spent 6 nights at this location, and loved every minute of it. The house is just a 5min walk from the beach and the beach itself is gorgeous!
Weekdays the beach is beautiful and quite, and on weekends the beach is so much fun, filled with food stands and music, great environment!
Truly glad we found this place, and hopefully on our next trip to Puerto Rico we will be able to return to this great apartment.
My sister and I and my two kids came here about two weeks ago and stayed for a week. It was decent, not FABULOUS and not shabby. I was happy with the television (YAY) since most places dont have cable, and was just glad the kitchen had a variety of cookware and such. This apt was close to the beach and was clean. The air was too cold, so cold I got sick on the 5th day from not anticipating how cold it would get! The area was nice, peaceful and quiet. The things I didnt like have no real reflection on the property. The beach was rocky, the area around the apt was too far from things to do, and there are no REAL street signs and no good directions from the property. The only things that would have made it better would be that back door-- it takes forever to get it to close or lock... and the internet. The internet only works in the living area and drops repeatedly in the bedrooms. I was on a brand new out of the box laptop and this was happening to all 3 laptops while in the property. Other than that, the pics describe this property to a T and payment was a breeze and the managers did help in trying to get us directions and show us what was in the area. Kudos to you guys, I had a blast!!
Mar Chiquita Beach (or the little sea) is one of the wonders of Puerto Rico, a half-moon-shaped piece of ocean that cuts through an opening on a stretch of rocks that separates the ocean from land. You can walk on the rocks (very carefully!) to do some shore fishing or just to enjoy the ocean. Take your time to sun bathe and walk the sandy beaches, take a dip in the ocean for a swim, or surf, it’s all yours to enjoy! Located in the north central part of Puerto Rico, Manati offers a great location for day trips. There are some “must see” sightseeing such as Old San Juan, just a 40 minutes drive. Hacienda La Esperanza and it's 2,00 plus acres along the ocean (http://www.fideicomiso.org/hacienda-la-esperanza-eng/) is owned and operated by the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico. Other historic locations owned by the Conservation Trust are shown in the link above.
