What is within walking distance for shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, tours? Is there local transportation available?
There is nothing at walking distance except the boat to Gilligan's island, and perhaps Playita Rosada. Without a car you'll have to depend on the hotel's expensive transportation and/or tours.
SMS is correct. There is absolutely nothing within walking distance to Copamarina. You will need a car to go everywhere.
With that said...
Shopping: Yauco Plaza shopping center is located about 15 minutes from the resort. Plaza del Caribe Mall is a nice 2-story mall located about 40 minutes east of the resort, in Ponce. Mayaguez Mall is located about 40 minutes west of the resort, in Mayaguez.
Sighseeing: Ponce - the old firehouse (great souvenir store and home made ice cream shop right across the street), the Serralles Castle, the museums, etc. Cabo Rojo - the beaches.Edited: 09 February 2012, 18:00
You need a car.
