In September 2017, Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage across the island. Many places closed for rebuilding. Frommer's recommends that vacationers check in advance with all businesses before traveling.
This jumble of cottages, homes and apartments cling to a seaside cliff along a dramatically beautiful stretch of Caribbean coastline. A narrow pathway cuts through the blooming plants and trees and connects the units in the main compound as it crisscrosses downhill to a dock and small beach, a break in the mangrove chocked coastline. Other larger units are spread across the San Jacinto area, a hilltop full of residences in the midst of the protected and pristine Guánica dry forest. The California style units are whimsical, extremely colorful, and comfortable; some have kitchenettes, and they vary in size, with some appropriate for families, and others for couples. Most have tremendous views. Barbecue facilities, kayaks, and paddleboards are all available for guest use. This is a low-key spot for vacationers looking to relax, and at night the symphony of the forest, and the gentle beating of the coastline, takes over. If you want to party, stay closer to town; the winding road to get here from the nearest bar is too dangerous at night.
