Sailing is a popular pastime in Luquillo, but it is also possible to sail to Puerto Rico from international waters as well. Some people have their own yacht and will typically sail down from the east coast of the United States, or they will charter a boat to do the same. Those who don't have the skills to do so can even hire a crew to captain and run the boat for them.

If you're simply wanting to enjoy some time on the water, without the complications and cost of sailing on your own you should take a day sailing excursion. Take a look at the listing that follows to obtain information on area day sail providers.
