Located in a residential neighborhood of Manati, this unit is in one of the best areas of Puerto Rico. Manati is best known as the "Athen of Puerto Rico" offering the best in local art and literature. The beach is only a short drive away, and there are plenty of local favorites to explore.
There are many close by establishments for guests to stock the fridge, do some shopping, and buy souvenirs. However, if your intention is to visit all the historic sites or the beaches, although close, some means of transportation is needed. If you are up for an adventure our public transportation system is very informal but can get you almost anywhere if you have time and patience. But if I were you, I would rent a car or rent a tour guide.
