Book Your Surf Trip in Western PR Today

With its luxury hotels, stunning beaches, and year-round warm weather, Puerto Rico has historically been a popular vacation destination for North Americans evading the winter weather blues, and the Caribbean island’s world-class swell is also a big draw for surfers in search of that perfect wave. At this time of year, Puerto Rico’s world-famous breaks are at their very best, with consistent swell throughout the winter months and with some waves cresting at a height of 25 feet, like Tres Palmas, a break located in the Puntas area of Rincon Puerto Rico famous for its double-overhead-plus bombs. If you’re dreading the cold winter months to come and looking for that next vacation destination, book a surf trip in Western Puerto Rico today!

Rincon Puerto Rico Surfing

One of the great things about surfing in Western Puerto Rico that not many other global surf destinations have, is that there are a variety of breaks, swell patterns and wave types spread out along the coast for surfers of all skill sets. Parking Lots, for example, is a sandy reef break in Rincon PR with mellow but fun waves that are perfect for beginners, while Dogman’s Beach is a solid reef break that breaks both ways and generates powerful and sizeable waves that keep advanced surfers coming back for more. If you’re looking for a real challenge though, Tres Palmas in Rincon doesn’t even start breaking until it hits double-overhead, and when it does break, you’ll find locals sitting on the tops of their cars, settled in for the show.

Puerto Rico Adventure Tours


There’s no doubt that surfing Puerto Rico’s miles of coastline is what attracts most people to the Caribbean island, but Western PR isn’t just for those who feel out of balance until a board is under their feet. Further inland off the West coast of Puerto Rico, you’ll find the island’s unspoiled landscape at its finest, with natural waterfalls, lush tropical flora, and densely forested mountains just waiting for the adventure-seeking type. From exhilarating zipline and eco-adventure trips to guided hikes and tours of Western PR’s abundant waterfalls and natural caves, there are plenty of non-surf-related activities in Puerto Rico as well.
