Rincon : Puerto rico


What It Is Like to Retire in Rincon

Rinco'n is a famous surfing and beach town on the northwestern corner of Puerto Rico.  The town rode to fame on the basis of the 1968 world surfing championships which were held here. Now many people come here for the beach, diving, and other water sports. Dubbed the "Caribbean's Hawaii," winter waves here can approach 25–30 feet  in height, near the surf on Oahu's north shore. The most famous surfing beaches are Little Malibu, Tres Palmas, Maria's, Indicators, Domes, Pools, Sandy Beach and Antonio's. Prime surfing season is from November through March. Nearby towns with American expatriate communites include the Aguadilla, Isabela areas.

What Is Special about Rincon

Great surfing, diving, and beaches on Puerto Rico's northwest corner. A very relaxed lifestyle. Here is what we read at a Yahoo listserv from someone living in Rincon: "Prices of food and utilities, comparable to the states. Housing less expensive. Cars more. But it's warm year round. I can go to the beach anytime. Pace of life is slower than the states, but I love it.
There is a farmer's market in town twice a month. There are several health food stores in area. There is a coop in town and they provide organic veggies once a week." http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110308114631AANPxCY


What Is Not Special about Rincon
