The beach is a one minute walk down at the end of the same street.

Sometimes you will see kayakers from the nature preserve, or local fisherman close to shore. You might be so fortunate to witness the huge leatherback turtles laying their eggs in the sand, or the hatchlings being born and scrambling into the ocean waters.

There are lots of great local places to eat close by, some are walkable but all are accessible by car. A car is required for any stay in Puerto Rico.

Where you’ll be

Humacao, Puerto Rico

We are happy to welcome you to beautiful Puerto Rico and very grateful for the opportunity to host your vacation in our little piece of heaven….We will strive to be on-call to answer questions, give directions, or any other general information you might require. Feel free to call from 9 am to 9 pm. We really are anxious to help you. We welcome you personally to the villa for the grand tour and load you up with a ton of info on the local areas. The principal guest MUST be at the Initial check in. Below we have listed general information on the area and fun things to do. They list lots of tour operators. Almost all businesses in PR have GPS locators, so look them up on social media or any other method and push the MAP button… Please remember to support our local businesses!
For questions, concerns or suggestions, please call us between 9 am to 9 pm

PLEASE RELY ON US or on our manual. In our manual you will find the places nearby to enjoy great coffee, fresh fish, local Island dishes, as well as awesome places to connect with nature. A copy can be found in the Villa.

BEACH: The Villa is equipped with everything you need to have a good time at the beach. Please make sure to bring back all beach toys, towels, chairs, umbrellas, floaters, boogies, etc. when finished for the day. Nothing should be left at the beach. While using any item you take full responsibility for your own safety and release us from any liability.
Please note that there are various periods in which the seaweed concentration is higher than usual. This coincides with the Leatherback turtle egg hatching season. You might be lucky enough to catch the mother turtles crawling their way up to the shoreline in order to lay their eggs, or even luckier to witness the new-born hatchlings crawl their way out of the sand nests and swim towards the ocean! Ignore the excess seaweed and jump in the water anyway!
Humacao Natural Reserve: Right down the beach from you! A very beautiful location with ponds, trails, and hikes, all in and around three lagoons. Parking is free or you can access directly by walking from our beach. You can hike, bike or fish. Check the schedules for free orientations and seminars offered by the Park Rangers. The Reserve is open 7 days/week, but the concessions are only open Wednesday thru Sunday 9am– 4pm (and usually Mondays that are holidays).
Hacienda Carabalí: Located between the foothills of El Yunque National Rainforest and the crystal waters of the Atlantic Ocean, we find an action packed ranch appropriately referred to as “Carabalí Rainforest Park” a paradise farmland full of lush flora & indigenous fauna, nestled among amazing tropical landscapes and packaged as one of the favored adventure destinations in the island. This multi-adventure ranch lets you experience the rainforest thru a variety of exciting tours and excursions (ATV’s, Horseback riding, Mountain biking, Go-Karts). “Carabalí Rainforest Park” features over 600 acres of farmland that run thru the foothills of El Yunque National Tropical Rainforest, a landmark that today is considered one of the world’s 20 best natural wonders. Try the horse trail that leads you thru mountains, rivers and directly into the ocean! Location: Road #3 Km. 31.6, Exit 992, Street A, Luquillo, Puerto Rico 00773.
Cabezas de San Juan: A bioluminescent lagoon, mangroves, coral reefs, dry forests, sandy and rocky beaches set between headlands, all these ecosystems in one place, the Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve, in Fajardo. You’ll find one of our most frequented visitor centers here. You can take traditional, night and thematic tours from here on bike, kayak or trolley, always in the company of a history and nature specialist who will show you everything about the ecosystems, landscapes and wildlife of the reserve, including the breathtaking view of the northeast tip of Puerto Rico form the top of the Fajardo Lighthouse. Tours last more than two hours, including a short tram ride through the dry forest section. Tours depart through the day; however most are in Spanish; the English tour is usually at 2pm.
Other tours include a bike tour ($20) and a birding tour ($12). Night tours (adult/child $22/12) explore the grounds, lighthouse and bioluminescent bay. Reservations are required for all tours. Please call and verify as prices might be different at reservation time.
You can get a glimpse of some of the reserve by simply walking east down the narrow beach from Seven Seas beach. Better yet, take a kayak tour with a tour operator at sunset, and explore Laguna Grande after dark for the green-glowing, underwater ‘fireworks’ of bioluminescent micro-organisms.
There are many ways to participate for nature in Cabezas de San Juan. They also offer workshops and special events, as well as volunteer and Citizen Science opportunities year round. Check out their event calendar online to make your reservation. Location: Hwy 987 at Las Croabas

• Charters to Monkey Island, snorkeling, diving, paragliding or hang gliding, call “Team Spirit Hang Gliding”: Bob & Keishya. They live right in our neighborhood. You can get an up-close view of the monkeys from the water. Since the water around the island is so shallow, the best viewing is from a kayak. There is also spectacular snorkeling. If they are not available when you want to go or you have little kids that can’t kayak, other options are a motorboat that departs from Palmas del Mar. Contact Maragata Charters. Or you can try Captain Frank (Paco) López, out of Punta Santiago

Parachuting and Ultralight aircraft rides are available at the Humacao local airport just 5 minutes away. Other providers are also on our social media page (Bougain-Villa). Old San Juan is 45 minutes away, but it will be worth the visit too!!! You’ll get to know part of our history and enjoy our historic forts.

The code will be given upon check in.
WIFI, TV: During heavy rains or storms, it’s common for wifi service to be interrupted. If that happens, please let us know immediately. We’ll call the cable provider and they will let us know approximately how long it will take to resolve the problem. It usually takes from a few hours to a day. Please be patient. WIFI: Password – Guestpalmirag1 (note cap letter G)
GARAGE DOOR: Code will be provided to you at check-in.
POWER: IMPORTANT NOTE: You probably pay an average of 5-10 cents per kilowatt of electricity, where you come from. In Puerto Rico we pay a whopping 45 cents. Yes, you heard right… power here is really, reeeaally expensive! PLEASE turn off the A/C units when not in the house. The rooms cool down VERY quickly once you return from your day.)
Keep in mind that the owner has the right to enter the property at any time for inspection and/or maintenance purposes and will do so every now and then. Please verify that every light switch and AC is off before you leave the property. Because of the high energy costs, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US. If AC’s or any lights (except for the entrance light outside, only at night), are found to be on at the time of inspection, and nobody’s at the house, the person under contract will be notified, and an additional $100 fee will be charged immediately.
FYI- The electricity in Puerto Rico is fairly reliable, but occasionally it does go out. If this happens, chances are that a neighbor has already filed a complaint to the Electric Authority, but just to make sure that has already happened, please let us know, and we will immediately issue an advisory. Depending on the issue, it might take from a few hours to a day, before the service is addressed and restored. In the meantime, that might be a good time to hit the road, and go on a new adventure, try a new restaurant, or visit a new town. We will definitely give you suggestions as to where to go or what to do.
• DO NOT overload the washer.
• Shake out (well) all towels outside to REMOVE SAND PRIOR to washing. Otherwise clogging will occur, and service will be interrupted.
• Clean the lint from dryer screen after each use.
• If you’re washing our towels, bed sheets or covers, ALWAYS wash whites with whites and colors with colors (do not mix).
• Please do NOT use white towels to rinse or clean your sunblock or remove make-up, as towels will stain permanently.
(Important: Please note that charges will be issued when washer and dryer are used incorrectly. Charges will also apply to you for every white towel and/or piece of laundry if dyed another color or used for make-up removal or dirt removal)
PETS: While we are animal lovers, to maintain our properties in top shape and allergy/dander free, we do NOT allow pets in our Villas (inside or outside) at any time. Please respect our policy. Failure to do so, will sadly result in immediate expulsion from the property.
VISITORS: Only pre-registered paying guests are allowed in the house. We require to be informed of any visitors that might be coming by (stop-overs or overnight guests). We understand you might invite local family members to spend the day but require PRIOR NOTIFICATION. Our local community Board requires we show them Govt' ID's for all guests.
UNATTENDED ITEMS: Bougain-Villa and/or property owner/manager will not be responsible for items left unguarded.
SUNBLOCK & REPELLENT: We usually have plenty of sunblock and mosquito repellant, but it might be a good idea to stop and get the one that better suits you and your family. When wearing sunscreen, be sure to apply sunscreen first, then repellent once sunscreen has dried. Cover exposed skin with long sleeves and long pants when traveling through rainforests and around standing water.
Please find these items in a white basket next to the hanging beach towels, turning left as soon as you enter the house. Feel free to leave your unused containers of sunscreen & repellant.
A/C’s: A/C units consume the most power, so PLEASE DO NOT run any of the units with exterior doors and windows open. This will cause the unit to freeze and become inoperable. A technician will have to be called in and they are not always available immediately. To conserve energy, please turn off the A/C units as you go out.
BEACH ITEMS: The Villa is equipped with everything you need to have a good time at the beach. Please make sure to bring back all beach toys, towels, chairs, umbrellas, floaters, boogies, etc. when finished for the day. Nothing should be left at the beach.
SAND: We know you’ll enjoy our beautiful beach. Returning from the beach, you’ll have a lot of sand on your feet, towels, beach toys and chairs. We kindly ask for you to shake your towels well BEFORE getting in the house (and doing laundry), and to USE the hose or OUR OUTDOOR SHOWERS to rinse off the sand on your feet and chairs, before settling in. You can also leave your shoes at the entrance, as you go inside the house.
BBQ GRILL: A grill lighter will be found in the kitchen drawer, under the cooktop. Please be sure the charcoal is completely extinguished after use, and make sure the area is clean before going to bed. DO NOT leave food residue on the grill. Failing to remove food residue, will attract ants, bugs, and other animals. For your convenience, you will find a hose, in the patio.
MOSQUITOES, IGUANAS, ANTS, LIZARDS AND OTHER BUGS: You are vacationing in the tropics! The house is constantly being fumigated, yet there will always be bugs that find their way in, especially if doors are left open and food is left out. We always recommend keeping doors and windows closed. Since the houses are on the beach or near the beach, tiny insects (no see’ums) come out at dusk and those might result in uncomfortable itching. To prevent that, please use repellant. (SEE SUNBLOCK & REPELLENT SECTION ABOVE). Iguanas are large lizards who love to hang out near the palm trees. If you see them, please don’t feed them or try to catch them. They are harmless but if you try to touch them, they will defend themselves with their tail.
LOCKING UP: While the Villa is located in a gated community, and we have alarm and camera systems all around, it is always smart to play it safe. After all, better safe than sorry. Please lock your cars always, as well all doors in the house. Use the latches on the doors when necessary. Keep your personal belongings inside the Villa, activate the alarm at night and when leaving the Villa. Do not leave electronics or other important belongings outside unattended, or visible when leaving. Please keep garage door closed at all times.
• Find the alarm panel in the entrance (left wall).
• Make sure all doors are closed and locked (except for the one you will go out through), before imputing the code.
• The code will be given upon check in.
GARBAGE: To avoid ants and bugs inside the house, please take the trash out every day. Trash will be picked every Monday morning, so please be sure to take it out and put the garbage in the trash bin area outside, on Sunday evenings. We want to maintain our surroundings as clean as possible for you and other guests, so we do not allow trash to be thrown in the trash bins without using bags. We do have cameras around the Villa, and $50 fines will be issued to the person signing the contract, if this were to occur. Please be considerate.
SUPPLIES: We provide basic household supplies for our guests, but please be sure to buy extra shampoo, soap, paper towels, toilet paper, and your favorite washing detergent for long stays. Some additional trash bags are also left on the kitchen counter.
CHECK-OUT: Check-out is at 10am. If they are no other guests arriving on your departure day, we can arrange for a later check-out if needed. Please let us know. Upon check-out, we would greatly appreciate your help in the following areas:
• Please turn off ALL lights, fans, and A/C units.
• If we can’t personally check you out for some reason, please call for instructions on where to leave the key and the beeper.
• Have a safe flight back!
