Destination guide

Go where Florencio locals stay

This little district of Florencio in Puerto Rico sits up in the hills, just a little out of town from more established Fajardo. Away from the beach, life ticks by a bit slower in these parts. Calm, peaceful and surrounded by sea air and lush greenery, this is a place to kick back with the locals, away from the well-beaten track. If you're thinking of nabbing a Florencio vacation rental, don't let its position away from the beach stop you – if you've got a car, you can be stretched out on the sand, or flying across the ocean on jet skis, in under 10 minutes.

Things to do

Florencio's neighboring Old Town

The countryside in Florencio is beautiful, as are the warm local Puerto Ricans, but the spot isn't blessed with a whole bunch of attractions. Fear not. If you've got a car, you'll find a ton of historical sites just an hour away, in the capital San Juan. A good introduction to the city is an amble around the small, colorful Old Town, or San Juan Viejo. Easily walkable, along the way you can dive into the Fuerte San Felipe del Morro, the old fort and the Museo de las Americas, which exhibits artifacts from the island's fascinating history.


Florencio is awash with outdoor activities

Most of your days are likely to be spent in and around Puerto Rico's sandy shoreline. While you're there, you can take advantage of the watersports. You'll not want to miss an afternoon sailing along the coast on a chartered yacht, renting kayaks to glide across the sea, or delving down to the coral reefs to experience a real life underwater aquarium. Does all that sound like too much effort? No problem. Grab yourself a freshly-cut coconut and perhaps a little of Puerto Rico's famously good soul food and return to your private spot on the sand.


Winter is busiest in Florencio

Puerto Rico's spot in the Caribbean means gorgeous bright skies and hot sunshine in the winter months,which draws in families who are escaping the below-freezing weather back home. If you plan to nab a Florencio vacation rental over the festive period, be sure to book up early. Outside of winter, spring can be very pleasant, with a dry climate. If you're looking for the best prices and brightest weather it's now. That said, if you don't mind the odd afternoon shower, look to visit in the summer season, when the rental costs nosedive.

Natural features

Squawking parrots in Florencio

Puerto Rico's El Yunque National Park sits just a mile or so down the road from your Florencio vacation rental. It's simply unthinkable to come to Puerto Rico without at least a quick glimpse around the park, which stands as your best bet for spotting wildlife. Here, you'll hear the squawk of the iconic Puerto Rican parrot, among other avifauna and reptiles. More wildlife encounters can be had while snorkeling and diving off the coast. It's not uncommon to spot turtles and parrotfish and if you're really lucky, you may even see humpback whales, the gentle giants of the sea.
