Faro Maunabo PRTreasures sometimes are discovered by outsiders. And that is the case of a small town in Puerto Rico. Maunabo, a coastal small city at the southeast of the main island of Puerto Rico also can see across the ocean the southwest part of of Vieques and Culebra islands.

Before a new builded road tunnel, it was difficult to reach by car the town, keeping it as the ‚ÄòEsmeralda del Sur‚Äô (The South Emerald). This small city has already begun to be overrun by housing developers and luxury resort Investors. Palmas del Mar owners have purchased land at the bayfront looking toward the end of known Punta Tuna Lighthouse Beach. The rumors are that their future intention is to build a hotel and a marina with a casino.

Fajardo and the East coast, that includes Culebra and Vieques Island, is the boater's eden as it is the door to the Eastern Caribbean. From Fajardo, most boaters travel/sail to the USVI, The British Virgin Islands and the different small islands-nations that Westward and Eastward Islands have. Fajardo has Marina Puerto del Rey, Sunbay Marina and Villa Marina. Humacao has its Marina de Palmas.

Traveling from those east points is easy and secure as you will find boat traffic and the US Coast Guard servicing between USVI and Puerto Rico. Also there are some cays on the northeast part of the Islands that you can also enjoy.

Is the place preferred by most surfers or "wana' be" surfers. With many surfing spots, you will be satisfy on the place to be. Specially during winter, were the waves keep growing as the cold is getting to the continental north.

Going down the south, the perfect spot for the opposite of surf beaches is Cabo Rojo. That town has many beaches that you can enjoy as their surf sizes are not as high at Rincón. Going down on the west, the waves get more friendly.
