A slice of the Caribbean in Cabo Rojo

While some Caribbean resorts lure vacationers with glitz and glamor, Cabo Rojo champions a laid-back approach. The municipality anchors Puerto Rico's southwestern tip and is known for its pristine beaches, sumptuous seafood and fiery sunsets. In English, the name translates to Red Cape, a nod to the sea cliffs and salt flats that glow in shades of pink, red and orange. The coastline is dotted with mellow beach towns like Boqueron and low-key resort developments. Whether you want to escape to a breezy beach bungalow, or relax in a golf course condo, Cabo Rojo vacation rentals put you just steps from the sand.

Iguana encounters in Cabo Rojo

Sun and sand are top priorities for most vacationers. Fringed by swaying palms and lush sea grape trees, Boqueron Bay Beach is one of Puerto Rico's top stretches of sand. You can soak up the sun, cool off in the aquamarine water, or string up a hammock and whittle the day away with a good book. Around 45 kilometers offshore is Isla de Mona, an untouched tropical paradise laced with sugar-white beaches. It's known as the Galapagos of the Caribbean, with the chance to spot giant rock iguanas, nesting sea turtles, breaching humpback whales and more than 100 species of birds.

Devour Cabo Rojo's catch of the day

Housed in a grand colonial mansion, the Museo de los Proceres recounts the island's colorful past. Inside, you'll find displays on local legends like Ramon Emeterio Betances, the leader of Puerto Rico's independence movement. Cabo Rojo is famous for its seafood, with most boats cruising into the Puerto Real fishing village. As well as practicing your Spanish with friendly fishermen, why not stock up on seafood and enjoy a sunset BBQ on the deck of your Cabo Rojo vacation rentals villa? If you'd rather dine out, head to Playa de Joyuda, where you'll find a string of seafood restaurants.

Balmy spring breaks in Cabo Rojo

While Puerto Rico's eastern coast is hit with the full force of tropical trade winds, Cabo Rojo is tucked away behind the Cordillera Central. This means it escapes much of the wild weather. Crowds peak in the winter, with US sunseekers snapping up family-sized Cabo Rojo vacation rentals condos. Temperatures hover around the 80s and the cape enjoys months on end of sunshine. Locals cite April to June as a sweet spot. Expect balmy weather, clear skies and quiet beaches.

Birding at the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge

Cabo Rojo is perched on the south-west tip of Puerto Rico, around 120 miles from San Juan. While the island sits in the Caribbean, it's an unincorporated US territory, which means you'll find plenty of expats living it up in the sunshine. The cape is dotted with nature sanctuaries, including the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge. It's home to a host of native bird species including the endangered yellow-shouldered blackbird. Refugio de Boqueron is another haven for birdlife, with the chance to spot migratory ducks, ospreys, mangrove canaries and more.
