About David

I am a very flexible and happy person. I enjoy the sea and water sports. Sailing is one of my favorites.I am at your service.

David purchased this apartment in 2000

Why David chose Fajardo

Since the first time I went to the town of Fajardo I fell in love with the place specially with Marina Lanais condo. As soon as you open the studio entrance door you can see the sea and a few islands. You can actually hear the waves.Sleeping with that sound makes you feel calm and in contact with mother nature.

What makes this apartment unique

There is so many things to do around the condominium like if I want to have dinner there is my next door neighbor El Conquistador Hotel with 18 restaurants or go to the local restaurants walking distance with a lot of sea food and local 'alcapurrias and vacalaitos fritos' with pina colada. At night I can go to starbucks in the hotel, a little salsa dancing at the hotel disco. Or I can go to the Las Croabas Lagoon in Fajardo (3 minutes walk)has 500,000 to 700,000 of bioluminescent dinoflagellates ( a plankton) per gallon, so when you wave your hand through the water you trigger so many of them that your hand lights up with a thousand tiny stars. There are many companies that offer kayak trips into the bioluminescent lagoon from the small fishing village of Las Croabas. At day the Rain forest (15 minutes drive) is a must! or the Seven Seas Beach. Is a white sand public beach located 1 mile fron the condo. The clear shallow water is teeming with vibrant tropical fish and coral reefs and is protected by offshore reefs. Trade winds blow across the water.

If you have plans to go to fajardo and have a beautiful sunny day. That's the place. Very near to the beach, water sport. Traveling to Culebras, Vieques and kajac .

Awesome Ocean balcony, nice location for east PR activities, helpful owner!

  • 4 of 5

1> Excellent location in Fajardo, close to Rainforest, Ferry Terminal. Kayaking, morning/evening walks

2> Ocean view 6th floor apt, perfect for Sunrise watching from bed. Gated community with parking. small but equipped kitchen. Owner also has another property on the Island.

3> David is very helpful and easy to reach to when needed. Met us at airport as stated and patiently waited for us.

4> Most importantly, for sight-seeing visit his recommendation list. Well worth visiting place outside San Juan and Fajardo if you have more time.

Two Days in Fajardo

David was very courteous and helpful; even recommended an amazing brunch spot in Fajardo which we tried out and loved. He met us at the airport at 3 AM and I was SO SO grateful for that. Would definitely come back and stay there again.

OceanFront in Fajardo

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed this unit. It was exactly as the pictures PLUS! The views are Fabolosas!! Would have put the bed in front of the balcony and forget the rest of the furniture!! :)

Walking distance to public marina, shops, restaurants, park. There is not a beach here. El Conquistador is not allowing non-hotel guest to visit Palomino island. You can go to public marina and ask for Don Julio for round trip personal boat transport to Icacos island which was AWESOME!

David was very informative, helpful and professional. Definitely coming back and staying there! Thank you David for everything!

Great work-vacation. I had a business meeting next door at the El Conquistador Hotel, is adjacent to the hotel and if you have a meeting there or friends staying there this is the place, one foot you are at the condo and the other in the hotel this is how close they are. This location was ideal for us as we were vacationing with family members who were staying at the adjacent El Conquistador and had business meeting there.

David's room has everything you need. The balcony view is breath taking. The best beach in the Fajardo area is called seven seas and is 1 mile from the condo. The 24 hours security is priceless. Is very safe to walk around the areas. They have walking distance great restaurants. David Is a excellent host. Ferry to Vieques and Culebra's island is 10 minutes away. The condo is nice and quiet.
