Discover the warmth of the Caribbean in a small town setting at the western most point of the island of Puerto Rico by staying at Hacienda Del Carmen. Our home Hacienda Del Carmen, is a two story town home centrally located within walking distance to many attractions in Rincon. The home boasts a rustic style; the wood throughout and the stonework lend a simple yet rich authenticity. The rooms are furnished to foster a comfortable charm for a relaxing environment. Each of the second story, three bedrooms has an AC and opens to a balcony or terrace. The main living area down stairs has a new 24,000 BTU AC. The bottom back patio area contains a refreshing cool water spa/Jacuzzi with a waterfall and an outdoor cool water shower. Downtown Rincon can be reached by foot in about 10 minutes. There you can find the traditional Puerto Rican town square with the Santa Rosa Church, restaurants, pubs, panaderias (bakeries serving breakfast, lunch and more, pharmacies, grocery markets, and many other establishments. Like most Puertorican towns, Rincon has a central plaza used by many to gather in the evenings, after church, to play dominoes or simply to sit and talk to their neighbors while enjoying the local cuisine sold there. The home is nestled among other town homes in the Vista Azul development of Rincon, in a row of other vacation home rentals and residences. This vacation home is located within walking distance to a swimming beach and within a 5-10 minute drive to (surfing beaches in the winter) other beaches including Steps and the incredible "Tres Palmas Marine Reserve" - ranging from surfing spots during the winter season, to snorkeling and sandy beaches for relaxation year round.

Rincon means 'corner' in Spanish and is situated at the western edge of Puerto Rico; but was named for a Spanish landowner from the 1600's. The town is known for its sunsets over the Caribbean Sea, as- 'El Pueblo de los Bellos Atardeceres' or 'The town of Beautiful Sunsets'. Rincon is well known for surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling and its friendly & small town atmosphere. It is frequented by visitors year round from all over the world, and locals alike. The beach is a short walk down the street in front of the house to the west, to the 90 degree turn in the street that runs parallel to the beach. Here you will find Sunset Village, a modern Festival Market located on this main town beach of Rincon. It includes beachfront shops, a seafood restaurant with an outdoor bar, park benches, a water sports & beach rentals. Take a one minute or less drive up the street in the opposite direction and hang a left on Route 413, 'the road to happiness.' Traveling north on 413, to the first left five minutes away, is the 'Black Eagle Marina' with 'Taino Divers', "Shipwreck" and "Copa Llena" restaurants" and bars. 'The Tres Palma Marine Reserve' begins to the north of this area with excellent snorkeling. Keep driving further to the world class surfing beaches in the Puntas area. Further along route 413 you will find the "Calypso Café" and popular “watering hole." During the winter months, you can find great surf - waves can sometimes grow to 20-feet and break in open water for seasoned experienced surfers only. Surfing lessons can be had for a nominal fee for beginners in calmer wave areas.

If you hang a right on 413 from the Hacienda Del Carmen, you can walk into the center of Rincon and find the town square with the Santa Rosa Church, cafes, grocery market, shops, pubs, and more. If you wander up a side street across 413 to the east, and start climbing up the hill sides you are likely to discover views of the Caribbean Sea and Desecheo Island.

A relatively new attraction in Rincon is the Rincon Trolley, with routes to grocery stores Steps beach etc. The rubber wheeled Trolley stops in the Sunset Festival shopping center, a 3 minute or less walk from Hacienda Del Carmen. Schedules and stops are found in local businesses; and its free.

What a great spot. From the initial email correspondence with Carmen I just knew we were going to be taken care of on our trip. Our flight had a late night/ pre dawn arrival into PR but the owners made sure we had specific directions, a contact number for their property manager and someone there to let us in. Once ther we found the house to be in a nice safe neighborhood steps from a beautiful sandy beach. The house is very cool. Tons of space w private balconies off of each bedroom and very comfortable beds. My family couldn't have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay. Any time we are in Rincon this will be our first choice. Highly recommendable.
