Puerto Rico Weddings: West Coast

The West Coast of Puerto Rico is know for its surfing beaches, romantic atmosphere and local charm. If you are looking for a serene local, and something different than your typical San Juan wedding this is the place for you. 

Check out some of these places that will keep your guests relaxed and long the island every step of the way!

Dinner Hideaway - Eclipse: This stylish local favorite at Villa Montaña in Isabela serves elegant continental cuisine in a seaside setting. Their house risotto comes with crabmeat and tiger shrimp — delish.

Barefoot Bar - Tamboo Tavern: Located on the beginner surf beach at Barrio Puntas in Rincón, this popular haunt offers shoes-off family fun by day and boisterous deck-top bar action by night.

Top Spa - Few things are as decadent as a massage on your oceanfront balcony at theHorned Dorset Primavera in Rincón. 

Rehearsal Dinner Smilin’ Joe’s: This longtime favorite at the Lazy Parrot guesthouse in Rincón serves modern Caribbean-Asian-fusion poolside or on a breezy deck overlooking a lush green valley.

Group Activity - Aquatica Dive and Bike: Your guests can ride the surf trend with Aguadilla-based José Rafols, who offers beginner lessons with a three-to-one student-teacher ratio. Also available: scuba diving and off-road biking.

Post-Reception Party Spot - Calypso Cafe: Lovely but lethal rum punches, frequent live music and a Caribbean grill overlooking the lighthouse and major surfing beach make this Rincón’s top gathering place for sunset and beyond — way beyond.

Off-beat Ceremony Site - El Faro de Rincón Park: Rincón’s lighthouse (faro), first built in 1892 and rebuilt in 1922, is as picturesque as the surrounding strolling park. Surfers will love the view as well; below the park is an important surf break.

Best Reception Music - The Forever Band: Blending Caribbean, jazz, Brazilian and rock-and-roll, this group mixes it up for a lively reception where no one will be left sitting for long.
