Luquillo is a good place to do whatever activity you fancy. There is even the possibility of booking horseback rides along the shore, and even taking an excursion to the El Yunque rainforest, as well as visiting San Juan or Fajardo.

The accommodation possibilities you have in Luquillo are very good. From here we recommend that you first look at the rental apartments. Take Apartamentos Sue, for example, which are halfway to the beach and the rainforest. They are small, very intimate and cozy two-bedroom chalets.

Another alternative is Luquillo Sunrise Beach, a fifteen-room hotel located in front of the sea and with wonderful views. Just a fifteen minute walk away you can use the famous Luquillo Spa for a massage and relaxation session.

We can also make a series of recommendations for eating in the area. For example, Café la Parrilla, located on the road to Luquillo. There are many of these places in the area, but this is perhaps the best. Order the fried fish dishes or their fantastic grilled burgers. All for less than eight dollars.
