Puerto Rico is beyond easy to get to from NY. You can pay around $200-$300 dollars for a flight from the East Coast, take a short drive, and be on the beautiful beaches of Rincon in no time. And waves are as easy to find as getting there is. On the most popular coastal stretch of road – also known as the SUNSET COAST – you’ll already find some of the island’s most recognized waves: Domes, Maria’s, Tres Palmas, and Indicators. Just take Route 413 north and keep left to “El Faro.” It’s that simple, and that short list doesn’t come close to the number of empty spots that you can easily find with a bit of local direction.
Here are some of my favorite videos of what the island has to offer:
