About Adam Garcia

From a young age our respective moms frequently took us to this beautiful island called Puerto Rico. Although our families were from different sides of the island, we share similar stories of hanging out with crazy cousins in the rivers, adventures in the lush mountain surroundings with our brothers and going fishing at the beach with our vociferous uncles. Our fondest memories were/are sitting at the dinner table with our grandparents to hear delightful stories about how life used to be.

Several years ago I was presented with the concept of using my logistics & real estate background hand in hand by owning and/or marketing amazing homes in Puerto Rico. Since then I've been joined by my beautiful girlfriend Cathy and my lovely niece Katryel who both share my love and passion of the island and its delightful culture.

Adam Garcia purchased this house in 2014

Why Adam Garcia chose Utuado

At most of our properties you can order delicious authentic Puerto Rican meals cooked and delivered right to your home by our family & friends. We offer several eco-friendly adventure tours (fulfilled by local companies), or you can just relax and immerse yourself in the local culture while creating wonderful memories.

We offer the ability to travel and explore the whole island using one of these homes as a base or several during your stay. Doing this will help you better experience our culture, and the islands’ delightful people. Our hope is that you fall in love with this enchanted island as much as we have.

Once you complete your reservation, Katryel will send a PDF that you will need to print prior to your arrival. This information includes detailed directions with GPS coordinates, more information about your stay and what we call our Activity Chart with lots of extras. The Activity Chart will help you plan out several days in our area with local spots to enjoy!

Upon arrival to Paradise, Cathy and I take over (mostly through text if you need anything). We, like many of you love to travel, the outdoors, to learn about where people are from, their likes & dislikes, but mostly what made you choose Puerto Rico.

Some of these properties are ours and several are owned by individuals (many elderly) that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. We only work with people who also want you to explore and experience some of our rich and diverse culture. Since many of these owners are elderly and all the homes are in residential areas, I encourage you not to book with us if your are not lovely, clean, honest and respectable.

We are honored you are considering us to help “host a life-time of memories”!!!

Sincerely,

Adam, Cathy & Kat (niece)

What makes this house unique

Many of our homes have hammocks, a grill, and all have basic cookware for you to use. We do need to know the exact amount of people and rooms you will use during your time with us as we lock rooms that are not in use. Since our prices are very modest, if your home has a washer and dryer we do not allow the use of these for stays under 7 days. Many of the homes have fruit trees, and you are welcome to pick the fruit, but be courteous to future guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Would recommend to my best friend.



#1 tip... Adam's aunt and uncle made the best food we had on the whole island. We strongly recommend scheduling them for at least 1 meal.



the caving was fun too.

An extraordinary place to enjoy for a full week!

  • 4 of 5

A well maintained cozy house, with enough space to enjoy all the inside of the property, quiet place to read, enjoy the Nature, the birds and the amazing views in and out of the property; location is perfect to access a large pool of tourism attractions just 15-30 minutes drive, in example, the Taino Ceremonial Park ( just plan to stay on the place for 1- 2 hours with the park rangers who are eager to tell you the Taino culture stories; plan to access the Tanama River Canon with one of the local business on the neighborhood; my recommendation, get the best information from the house business owner; he can give you plenty of advise on what to do. Enjoy the Puerto Rico mountains like any other!.

This is where the fun begins!!!

We encourage you to take a minute and read over our Activity Chart that will be sent to you by my lovely niece Katryel shortly after booking. This document was made to help you plan your ideal vacation, by providing you with A Few Days Worth of Things To Do and places to visit in and around the area. This document also offers information on how you can order authentic Puerto Rican meals that are delivered right to your door, and ways to book any one of the unforgettable Eco- Friendly Tours (hosted by local adventure companies) and information about the places locals like to go so that you can really get a taste of our rich & diverse culture.

Both the Ponce and San Juan Airports are 1.5 hours away. Aguadilla is 1 hour away.

Under 15 minutes from the home you have a small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, two bakeries a gas station and several restaurants. There is an awesome sports pub with a great owner in Lares (the next small town over), and we even have a small computer, internet & copy center in front of the local super market!

You can stop in Utuado or Lares for larger grocery stores or a redbox DVD before heading up into the town.

We treat you with lots of respect and care so we expect the same back. You will enjoy your stay and the home but remember it is our home so please inform us of anything pertinent.

-Do not smoke anywhere inside the house.

-Keep it as clean as possible inside and out.

-No pets in the property at any time, and if you see strays outside, we ask that you don't feed them as they will never leave and we want to keep the homes clean and allergen free.

-Please do not move our furniture but if you feel the need to, put stuff back as some of our staff are petite.

-We do not allow parties, events &/or unregistered guests or visitors (including locals) without our permission.

-Some of these properties are ours and several are owned by individuals (many elderly) that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. We only work with people who also want you to explore and experience some of our rich and diverse culture.

House Rules:

We treat you with lots of respect and care so we expect the same back. You will enjoy your stay and the home but remember it is our home so please inform us of anything pertinent.

-We do not allow parties, events &/or unregistered guests or visitors (including locals) without our permission. No Visitas o Eventos.
-Do not smoke anywhere inside or near the house
-Keep it as clean as possible inside and out.
-No pets in the property at any time as we want to keep the homes clean and allergen free.
-Please do not remove anything from the home or move our furniture.
-Because our prices are so modest, we lock rooms that are not going to be used by your group. If your home has a washer, you can use it if your stay is above 5 days.
-Some of these properties are ours and several are owned by individuals that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. Since many of these owners are elderly and all the homes are in residential areas, I encourage you NOT to book with us if you are not lovely, clean, honest and respectable.
-Our reviews do not talk much about this because it does not happen much but on the rare occasion that a utility fails while you are in Puerto Rico (at any of our homes), we ask that you be patient and enjoy island life knowing that all of the other neighbors do not have water or electricity for a few hours as well. We have many elderly in the area so utility companies work diligently to fix issues. All of our homes have back up water reservoirs and I have gas lamps and/or candles at all the homes. We will not refund any funds for not having a utility if it's not our fault! Some of the few guests that have experienced an outage expressed it was the best time they've had with their family because the TV was off and they played games together.

We are honored you are considering us to help “host a life-time of memories"!!!

Notes:
You will need to rent a car as there is no public transit up in the mountains. Once you book with us, Katryel sends you a welcome letter w/ written directions, GPS coordinates and extras. The extras is a long list of many things to do in and around the area including local spots to enjoy. All of the roads are paved so any car is fine. The most you’ll find is some pot holes but you can drive through or around them slowly and be ok. We usually suggest renting for Dollar Car Rental (Verdanza Hotel Branch) or any other MAJOR car rental company. If you are on an unpaved road, you are lost! :)
