Where to stay - Highly recommend you stay in any of the readily available surf hotels in Rincon. The way to go is to meet other local gringos (been there since the early 60s), and ask if you can tag along to the surf spots. I'm assuming your visiting for a surf trip? If so, you will have a great time and find an array of spots within Rincon. In addition, 70%, of the people you will find in and out of the water are travelers like yourself and again the local or home grown "gringos". If you venture out to Aguadilla go to the better know spots ie. Crashboat ( very user friendly w/ many tourist)' Gas Cambers (get ready to be overcome by sponges), Wilderness (soft right..occasionally treacherous) and Surfers beach (super soft and great for the entire family). I will been feel comfortable recommending Jobos in Isabela (all towns within short drive). Isabela offers two other well know spots..but that's up to you. You pass Isabela and for certain your car will be broken into as a minimum and your safety and those accompanying you will be at grave risk. I am not being negative nor am I telling you what to do..simply providing some facts that anyone would appreciate. Best of luck and hope you catch it going off!
