Day 1: Welcome to Puerto Rico

Most flights to Puerto Rico arrive at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU), about 2.5 hours east of Puerto Rico’s west coast. But more and more U.S. cities are offering flights to Rafael Hernández International Airport in Aguadilla, which is under an hour from most municipalities in the west region. Whichever airport you choose, we recommend renting a van or hiring a transportation service to get your crew to and around their final destination.

In the west, you’ll find a host of amenity-filled accommodations that are equipped for group stays, including:

The sun setting over the water in Rincon, painting the sky a color of purple, pink, orange and dark blue.

Rincón is renowned for sunsets, surf, and sensational beaches.

Spend some time relaxing by the pool before heading to Rincón Beer Company. This cozy microbrewery offers 16 rotating taps of locally brewed beer for adults 18+ (the legal drinking age in Puerto Rico) as well as a robust menu of bar bites, including everything from fish tacos to IPA-infused cheese dip. After dinner, head to one of the many nearby beaches to catch one of the region's iconic sunsets. 

Local and visiting surfers in the water waiting for the next big wave at Domes Beach in Rincón, Puerto Rico.

Domes Beach has one of the best surf breaks in all of Ríncon.

Day 2: Surf & Sunsets in Rincón

If you have watersports enthusiasts in your group, then a visit to Rincón is a must! Start the day with breakfast and coffee at Stoked: Xpresso + Surf. From there, head over to Rincón Surf School for a three-hour surfing lesson. Their knowledgeable instructors will show your group everything they need to know about surfing the Island’s famous breaks.

Cowboy's Cantina in Rincón has a casual, western vibe. 

After the lesson, your team can test their skills — or enjoy some R&R — at some of Puerto Rico’s best surfing beaches, including María’s, Sandy, Steps, or Domes. If you opt for Domes, we recommend a side trip to Punta Higüera Lighthouse for panoramic views of the coast. The on-site snack bar is the perfect place to rehydrate and catch one of the west’s legendary sunsets.

Round out your day of sunshine and surf with a hearty dinner at Cowboy’s Cantina & Outside Grill, a local favorite known for their wood-burning barbecue and fine selection of steaks.

Day 3: The Natural Jewels of Cabo Rojo

Did someone say road trip? Grab a quick breakfast at the hotel, or if you’re staying in Rincón, pick up some pastries from a local bakery like Panaderia La Nueva Estación or Panaderia La Rincoeña before hitting the road to Cabo Rojo. This outdoor-lover’s wonderland (and former pirate hideout) is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes in Puerto Rico, and is about an hour southwest of Rincón.

Begin with a hike at Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge, where your team can meander along trails of varying length and difficulty, learning about local wildlife along the way. The refuge is home to several scenic spots, like Puente de Piedra (a natural stone bridge) and Los Morrillos Lighthouse, as well as one of the Island’s most iconic beaches, La Playuela/Playa Sucia. Or, soak up some sun at Playa El Combate, a popular beach for the younger crowd. Be sure that everyone gets a chance to jump off the pier… it’s a thing here!

While in Cabo Rojo, a lunchtime visit to Annie’s Place has got to be on the menu. An Island staple since 1974, they’re known for serving local seafood, juicy burgers, and their famous empanadillas. If there's time, work off lunch with a hike on the trails and boardwalks of Boquerón State Forest.

As the sun begins to set, head to dinner at Buena Vibra Bar & Tapas, where diners can feast on creative small plates that are rooted in traditional Puerto Rican cuisine. For those 18+, the restaurant also boasts a large beer and cocktail selection.

Day 4: Scuba, Snorkel, or Jet Ski — Player’s Choice!

Like Rincón, Aguadilla is a popular destination for watersports. If you’re visiting on the weekend, you’ll definitely want to grab brunch at Aguadilla Rooftop Experience (Rumchata French Toast with a beachfront view, anyone?).

As we know, athletes are always up for a new challenge, which is why we recommend booking a beginner-friendly snorkeling or scuba-diving excursion with Aquatica Dive and Surf. Your group can experience the thrill of underwater exploration at reefs inhabited by moray eels, lionfish, and more.

Those who prefer to stay above water can try jet-skiing with Aguadilla Water Sports. Their guides will take riders along the picturesque coastline and into hidden coves for sightseeing and snorkel opportunities.

Punta Borinquen — aka The Ruins — is the site of a Spanish-style lighthouse destroyed in an earthquake. 

Finish the day with a team photo at Ruinas Faro Punta Borinquen, a dramatic lighthouse ruins perched above the coast that's known for Insta-worthy sunsets. Follow that with dinner at Desecheo, whose specialty is authentic Puerto Rican mofongo (mashed plantains heaped with the meat, seafood, and sauces of your choice).

Day 5: The Ultimate Day on the Water in La Parguera

If schedules allow, plan to take a day trip to La Parguera in the town of Lajas, a seaside destination tucked away on Puerto Rico’s southwest coast where an array of aquatic experiences await.

Since there’s much to choose from, working with a local tour provider such as Parguera Water Sports or Hook'd on Adventure Parguera will help you make the most of your day. These guides offer everything from boat charters to the crystal-clear waters of Cayo Enrique to guided kayak tours of La Parguera Bioluminescent Bay, which glows and sparkles as you move through the water.

Your group can also book a deep-sea fishing adventure aboard a 31’ vessel with Parguera Fishing Charters. Or, go diving with Paradise Scuba Divers at The Wall, La Parguera’s legendary dive spot that’s home to barracudas, manta rays, triggerfish, and more.
