Trees or settle down at a picnic table where you can enjoy the authentic island cuisine from the vendors who make their living there when in season. Have an ice cold beer while relaxing, swimming in crystal clear waters and if you stay long enough, and you will, enjoying the magnificent sunset. Here you can walk in snorkeling and diving and enjoy the beautiful sponges and marine life that have accumulated over the centuries at the piers.
The condominium is approximately 8 minutes from Rafael Hernandez Airport, minutes to Route 107 which leads to Mayaguez where there is the Mayaguez University, Casinos and one of the best shopping centers on the Island. Along the way, make sure you stop at the Mayaguez Zoo which is unique in that it was built into the Island landscape. The cinema is also close by.
Head in the opposite direction and you can visit the Camuy caves where you will marvel at this eighth wonder and your guide explains how the caves were born.
Surfing: Go to nearby Isabella with great waves off the
Atlantic Ocean, and Rincon, a surfer's paradise. Popular
surfing beaches are Wilderness Surfing Beach and Gas Chambers, or you just walk and explore the nearly desolate beaches, all within 10 minutes from the condo.

About Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn
My husband, who is Dutch/Irish, and I ( I am Puerto Rican descent) met 20 years ago. When we first me, he asked me when was the last time I had been to the Island. I was born and raised in New York and only had a faint memory of visiting when I was a toddler. So he purchased tickets and off we went to the motherland and we fell in love with it and have been treking back to Puerto Rico every since. We always find something different to do, and enjoy our stay every time.
Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn purchased this apartment in 2008
Why Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn chose Aguadilla
We stayed in Dorado Beach when the thought hit us that we might as well buy a condo since we enjoyed the Island so much. However, everywhere we looked, the properties were sold out. A friend had just come back from Puerto rico and told us about this property. Not having much time to furnish and decorate the place, we decided to purchase the model. It was the best decision we have ever made.
What makes this apartment unique
8 minutes from the airport. Close proximity to many recreational activities and shopping. And , of course, the beautiful beaches!
Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I planned a last minute getaway and wound up staying for 10 days at Puerta Del Mar. The apartment was absolutely beautiful, clean and well maintained. Close to the airport. We went snorkling, skating, did a day trip to the Camuy Caves and even managed a trip to the Zoo.
In between we lounged on the beach or by the infinity pool with its spectacular view of Crash Boat Beach. Great Vacation!
