Puerto Yabucoa

With the area known for the rich and fertile soil, you can bet that Puerto Yabucoa is a beach shrouded by a wall of trees (much like the rest of the region). This helps give the beach a much more natural feel than it really is; located just steps from from homes, baseball fields, and other marks of civilization. However, the long beach is still a quiet alternative to the city beaches, and the surroundings much more green.

Located in the vicinity of Humacao, Puerto Yabucoa is on the East edge of Puerto Rico. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying in the immediate vicinity. Those of you who spend part of the afternoon at this beach can have a relaxing time without missing an opportunity to meet new people.

Amenities and Ambiance

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Puerto Yabucoa provides an idyllic and peaceful place to escape, as the region surrounding the beach is more rural than urban.
