Activities in Rincón

The activity that Rincon is best known for is surfing.  During the winter months you'll find some of the best surfing in Puerto Rico here, and there are world wide tournaments that bring surfers to this town in droves every year.  Not everyone knows or wants to learn how to surf, and for those people, there are a few other activities to consider participating in while staying in this laid back, almost hippie-style beachside community. 

As you might imagine, other watersports are a great way to pass the time as well.  Snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, and kayaking are all popular.  On land, you might consider a sightseeing tour that will take you to the Rincon Lighthouse, do some zip-lining or horseback riding, and get in a bit of shopping to pick up a few handmade knick-knacks to comemorate your time in the Surf Capital of Puerto Rico.

Rincón Diving

The Mona Passage is in close proximity to the city of Rincon. This passage is where the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea meet, resulting in a mix of large fish that can be great for sportfishermen.
