Cabo Rojo Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I usually visit the Cabo Rojo area once every summer and have stayed in different apartments/houses near several town, this time we decided to try something more relax and found this house boat option. The Pelican house is located in a fisherman village called Puerto Real which is great for us since we are seafood lovers, fresh catch served instead of imported frozen fish. The location of the house boat is also near Boqueron and Combate which are the towns with the most activities. We prefer to stay in Puerto Real since its a quiet town were you can rest at night but also is near the party towns, staying in Boqueron or Combate is sleepless nights because of the loud music and bars environment all night. We can only take so much party a night after we need to rest a little... Our favorite beach (Buye) is only 5 minutes from the house boat which was great for us, second best beach is Playa Sucia about 10 minutes away.

Conclusion: we will repeat our stay next summer and will probably bring another couple or two. This house accomodates 6 people (3 couples with a room each). Rental car is a must to get to other towns and beaches unless you want to spend a lot of money in taxi not sure Uber works in this areas...
