Ours is a hidden gem that keeps quests returning year after year.

About the neighbourhood
This map won't accept our address, but Apartment at Pools Beach is on the beach in Puntas. We are near Sandy Beach and the activities there, but far enough away to be in a quiet, secluded cove. Sunsets are beautiful and Desecheo Island is visible from our balconies as well as whale watching and world class surfing.
Getting around
Plenty of restaurants and activities within walking distance, but the local market is about a 10 minute drive away. Car rental is not necessary but recommended, Uber has started to have drivers in Rincon
