Set in a flat valley of the Central Mountain Range of Puerto Rico, Caguas is known as the “Heart of Creole Country.”  There are numerous cultural attractions open on a daily basis which allow guests to learn about the history, the government, and the arts that have influenced this town.  In order to spend some time on a beach, it will require a bit of a drive, but there is still plenty to keep you busy outdoors, from flourishing botanical gardens to a boardwalk on the river, and of course, trips into the mountains. 


Isla Verde Beach

You will find a large selection of beaches to visit, though all of them are found in neighboring areas. Click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that beach.

A location where you may find people snorkeling is Isla Verde Beach. Relax on the sandy shores on a quiet day, or party with friends on weekends when things get more lively. There's plenty to do in the water from parasailing to waterskiing.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Carolina Beach. Set between Isla Verde and Piones is Carolina Beach, or Balneario Carolina in Spanish. Carolina Beach is actually not one, but a series of three beaches that stretch across the north coast of Puerto Rico.
