Description from the publisher
Villa Tropical’s Apartments are directly in front of the “Blue Hole”, a coral-reef-protected swimming area that provides visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of sea life while snorkeling and diving in underwater caverns. Villa Tropical is in front of what Windsurfer magazine has called the best wave sailing in the Caribbean and what Skin Diver magazine has called the best snorkeling and diving in Puerto Rico. Just west of the coral reef is a challenging surf break and almost a dozen additional major breaks are less than a 10 minute drive away. Over two miles of uninhabited beach and distant cliffs beckon sunset walkers. Nearby you can also enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking, cave expeditions, the Arecibo Observatory, and an 18-hole golf course with spectacular cliffside ocean views. Mother Nature provides solitude and adventure, as desired. Guests/Tenants of Villa Tropical come for all reasons in all seasons. When the surf is up, surfers from around the world are here. When it’s windy, the kite-boarders dazzle and amaze. When it’s calm and clear, Shacks visitors enjoy snorkeling and diving in underwater caverns. There is something for all ages. If you’re here on a job assignment, you can still enjoy the evening moonlit sky from your deck at Villa Tropical.
How to get there
Exit the San Juan airport and take the first right (right after the underpass, toward San Juan; do not go onto the toll road). After you’ve gone about 3 mi. on Rt. 26, you’ll go over an overpass, and then the road dips down below normal ground level; take the next exit-Route 22. Almost immediately, you’ll go through a tunnel. Shortly after that, the road divides. Stay on Route 22 (the right fork), following signs toward Bayamon/Arecibo/Mayaguez. Continue on Route 22 until it ends (west of Arecibo). There will be three tolls; it saves time to have $5 in change. When Route 22 ends, the road joins Route 2. Go toward Mayaguez/Aguadilla. [Aside: If you want to stop to get groceries, once you have been on Route 2 for about 20 miles, there will be a mall on the left with a Pep Boys, a Walmart & a Co-op (Isabela Plaza). The Co-op is a supermarket. It’s open 6am-10pm exc. Sundays, When it’s 11-5. It’s about 15 mins. from Villa Tropical. After you’ve been on Route 2 for about 22 mi., there will be a long section without traffic lights. Start looking for a RIGHT turn onto Route 110 - North. That goes toward Ramey. There’s a sign that says “Pta. Borinquen/Aeropuerto Rafael Hernández.” Take Route 110 a bit more than 4 miles to Route 4466. You will pass Hewlett-Packard. You will pass a gas station with a subway. There’s a blinking traffic light and the restaurant Brisa del Atlantico is on the SW corner of 4466 (NOTE: This turn onto Route 4466 is about 1½ miles past HEWLETT-PACKARD.) Make a right onto Route 4466. Go to the bottom of the hill & take the first left (it’s right at the bottom of the hill before you pass any buildings). There are signs for Tropical Trail Rides and Villa Montaña and a small “Villa Tropical” sign at the turn. Follow the “Villa Tropical” signs. They are high up on utility poles. You will make a left turn and pass “Ola Lola’s” Garden Bar and then you come to an intersection where there are signs showing Tropical Trail Rides and Villa Montaña to the left and Bamboo Art and Villa Tropical to the RIGHT. The Villa Tropical sign is high on this pole. Turn right. Follow the road until it dead ends and you have to turn to the left (about 100 yards). After the turn, we’re the 4th house on the right. There is sign on a pole and on the building and you will see our office. If your get lost, call 787-872-7172
