Certificate of Excellence
Welcome to La Pared Beach in Luquillo - Puerto Rico's center of east coast surfing!
1 of 76Welcome to La Pared Beach in Luquillo - Puerto Rico's center of east coast surfing!
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Luquillo, Puerto Rico
If you like the idea of living like a local - this is a traditional beach town with few tourists - steps from surfing beach & town plaza.

Rate is for 1-4 guests in 2 bedrooms with king beds. Single daybed in living room.

This apartment is on the SECOND FLOOR - no elevator.

NO AIR CONDITIONING - but very good cross ventilation & breeze.
Bedrooms & living room have ceiling fans.

Our goal is to provide a comfortable apartment for travelers who want a great place near the beach at a VALUE PRICE!

This is one of the best values for an apartment so close to the beach. Many nearby 'beachfront' condos require elevators, lobbies and longer walks to beach. Condos are great for people who want a 'gated experience' - this house is for people looking for a truly local experience in the center of a Puerto Rican beach to...

Interaction with guests
The owners are located in San Juan, but we have a handyman who lives in Luquillo who can take care of any issues with the house while you are there. Key pick-up is in San Juan (less than 10 min from the airport) but you can leave the keys at the house when you leave and go directly to the airport. We're only 45 minutes away from Luquillo is there is anything that requires attention. We also have rentals in San Juan if you need a place in the Arts District after your stay at the beach.

15 minute walk to famous Luquillo public beach and local food kiosks.

Getting around
There is no public transportation outside of San Juan.
Uber will bring you to Luquillo for approx $65 fixed rate. However, there is not very much UBER coverage in the Luquillo area, so you may have to wait for a car or find 'no cars available'.
Taxis are available, but expensive with a trip from San Juan in the $80-100 range.
Once you are in Luquillo, you can walk to many restaurants, mini-mart, bakery, or just across the main road to a large supermarket.

How to get there
Airport: SJU: 42.0 km
Ferry: Fajardo: 12.0 km
From the airport - follow signs for Carolina.
You will come to a point where the highway divides into Rt 3 and Rt 66.
You can take either one in the direction to Rio Grande.
Rt 3 is a local divided road lined with strip malls and local businesses - it takes about 15-20 minutes longer due to stop lights - but there is no toll.
Rt. 66 is an expressway with two tolls - but no stop lights so it can be much faster.
Both roads meet up again in Rio Grande and you'll continue to Luquillo.
I'll send detailed directions after you confirm your booking.
