Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico

(80+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
Founded in 1771, Cabo Rojo got its name from the coastal minerals which make the water look reddish. Relax on the beaches, swim, snorkel, and dive here, or, if you prefer less-strenuous activities, take a boat tour of the nearby islands. Throughout the year, locals organize different festivals, and attending those remains one of the best ways to learn about a new culture and local traditions. If you wish your vacation to be a real adventure, visit all the isolated attractions on a bike, which you can rent almost anywhere. Put Cabo Rojo into our Mayaguez vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
