The west is the best, that phrase says all. World class scuba diving, great beaches, calm waters in the southwest and heavy surf in the northwest. Best sunsets on the island.

I love Porta del Sol tourism area. The breeze of the sea, gastronomical restaurant and the great beaches makes a paradise of the west coast. My favorite place was La Parguera in Lajas, great music and the bay is so smashing.
