Beautiful town with lots of Spanish Architecture. A real hidden gem. Casa Vivoni is a Victorian-Style mansion which sadly is not open to the public. Still, it’s quite a site from the outside.

The streets, plazas, buildings, and general environment are wonderful. The hotel situation is rather minimal, although shopping and restaurants are great. And it is near some nice natural areas including Maricao forest, and the beaches at La Parguera and Cabo Rojo area.

Colorful town with historic buildings. The church from 1800 is a walk into the past. Drive the streets to see the old houses !
