Dream that you live steps away from a nearly deserted Puerto Rican beach
Villa Tropical permits you the fantasy of Caribbean beach living. We stayed for a week in Quinones M1, a ground floor apartment that was literally steps away from the ocean. We have...More
We stayed here for 4 nights in R2. The location is incredible. Right on the beach! So close that even when it was windy and the blowing sand made it impossible to sit on the actual beach it didn't matter because the deck was so...More
When my husband and I booked Villa Tropical, we were not quite sure what to expect. The reviews on Trip Advisor were generally great, but the accommodations at some of the villa's seemed questionable. I am SO HAPPY we took a risk.

Vila Tropical is located on the most beautiful beach in Puerto Rico in my opinion. The beach is never busy and is frankly, often a deserted paradise, with no big hotels ruining the rugged coastline and a beautiful snorkelling reef just off shore The apartments...More
Stayed in Villa Tropical for 2 nights and truly loved it. The properties are beautiful and well managed. The houses are ON the beach which is clean and beautiful. You can walk in both directions without seeing a house or encountering a living creature (exception:...More

VT Main (BL, TR, TL), Villa Rivero and Bajandas units have the shortest distance to the swimming area outfront and best views of the blue hole coral reef but agreed, sometimes having a pool option too is golden with kids. Mother Nature sets the schedule for calm vs rough waters and though we can estimate calmer in summer than in winter, it all depends on the weather. If however it is super tough swell surfing time of year, best to watch not snorkel. If it's calm you don't need to venture far from shore to see live coral and an assortment of sea life. The swimming hole always offers a protective refuge for bathers but expect a current, which in itself can be loads of fun. One can always drive the short distance to jobos beach or crashboat for more sandy bottoms. There are beaches best known for learning to surf and those like shacks known for its miles and miles of untouched wilderness. Our kids, 7&9 love the Long Beach walks exploring for shells and bamboo and other ocean collectibles. Calm is ok, but they prefer waves to jump in. Booties are advisable as well as encouraging doing our best not to touch the coral or sea plant life but just in case, nice to have on. Always wear your mask so you can keep an eye on your underwater surroundings and you will have a great time. Rent an SUP and explore the reef from above the surface. Walk over to tropical trail rides and enjoy a shacks beach horseback ride adventure. Call reservations and talk more about when you are planning to visit and we can best advise on available units and their features for families. Remember we book direct only - no ota's - call 787-872-7172. See more pics on our Facebook page and on Instagram @shacksbeach.
