We are located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by lots of water and great beaches. Playa Santa features a great sandy bottom, roped swimming area, snorkel opportunities, shaded trees and palms, 2 beach bars for food, drink and playing some pool. Playa Santa is also home to: Pino's Boat & Water FUN where you can catch a banana boat ride, rent a jet ski take a jet ski or boat tours. La Jungla(Jungle Beach) is also within a good walk or slow ride right up to your own spot in along the Caribbean. Private & relaxing. You'll find a local small Marina with fresh fish and lobster for sale, boat launch and more great shore diving.Island Scuba's dive boat leaves from this Marina and Island Scuba Dive Shop is located within steps of our front door. Island Scuba Dive Boat is the dive boat closest to 'THE WALL' dive plus so many more documented dive sights. Puerto Rico is spectacular for divers and snorkelers and this location is where you want to be. Door to DIVE = JUST MOMENTS ! We have a 'little beach' just to the front of Villa Bonita perfect for a morning swim, afternoon snorkeling, and beautiful evening sunset. We are the doorstep to the SUN ! Cool down and get wet at the 'Little Mangroves' or the 'Manglillos' with a raft and float around the trees and watch the Pelligans dive for fish. Tie and anchor to a raft (we have them for our guests use at the Villa Bonita) and float around in 1 foot of Caribbean water for the best sun tan you'll ever get. The mangroves have showers, pit grills, and picnic area, lots of shade trees and beach area. The Mangroves area also offer awesome snorkeling and shore diving. Our villa is a great place to just relax . . . read a good book on one of our lounge chairs, practice yoga or meditate & then throw some fish or steak on the outdoor B-B-Q grill ! There is an outside shower to get rid of sand from beach items and your bodies. Wheeled coolers for shopping and the beach. We are with in 20 minutes by car to Guanica Dry Forest for hiking/bird watching and Gilligan's Island where you can catch a ferry ride out to a protected park for swimming, snorkeling and a family picnic!! When you're out of things to do right in our back yard you may want to travel about 20 minutes west to La Parguera ( Bio-bay and charter fishing) and Cabo Rojo (Cabo Rojo light house) or east to Ponce where you'll find a multitude of great restaurants, casinos, golf courses, shopping, and road side eateries. There are so many beautiful sights in Puerto Rico and we'll show you some of our favorites but you are sure to find treasures of your own. Villa Bonita is the Mermaids Playground!More
