Destination guide

Zarzal provides some serious R&R

If you're a golfer, you may have just found the perfect spot for your summer vacation. Just moments from your Zarzal vacation rental, there are several world-class waterfront golf courses where you can practice your swing. Not your bag? There's a ton of sandy spots to indulge in some serious R&R, best accompanied with a little Puerto Rican soul food and a good book. If you're looking for a little more excitement, Zarzal's got you covered, with a long list of water sports and land-based adventures including the El Yunque National Forest.


There's much more to Zarzal than the beach

You'd be forgiven for spending your vacation doing little else but kicking back on the beach. The allure of powdery white sand and swaying palms is too good for some to tear themselves away from. Those who manage aren't short of other things to do. If you want to explore the island trails, you can do so on foot or horseback, while the forest canopies are best experienced via the network of zip-lines. More family fun can be had on the water, whether it's diving down into the deep, riding the waves on surf boards, or motoring along on jet skis.


Skip winter this year in Zarzal

You'd be hard pushed to find a better time to visit Puerto Rico and stay in a Zarzal vacation rental than winter months, when the sun beats down on the island's beaches, a stark contrast for the gloomy weather back home. If you're thinking of a little festive getaway, you'll want to get in there quick, as it's the busiest season. A little later in the year, the weather hots up even more and if you arrive in spring, you'll escape the winter crowds, miss the rainy season and score some fabulous deals on waterfront rentals.

Natural features

Tropical critters on land and sea in Zarzal

One of the best things about nabbing a Zarzal vacation rental is your position, squeezed between the coast to the north and the El Yunque National Forest just south. Both these spots house your best chances for up close wildlife encounters. If you hike through the forest, you'll spot tropical critters like iguanas basking in the sun, bright-colored frogs hopping along the forest floor and Puerto Rican parrots squawking from the treetops. If you dive down to explore the underwater life, you'll get face-to-face with parrotfish, turtles and other creatures of the deep.
