Pinones, Puerto Rico

3.7
#5 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Puerto Rico
Take a break from the modern tourist trappings of San Juan with a visit to Pinones, a series of untouched beaches, lush forest trails, and rustic seaside venues. Trek through the pine groves or do some snorkeling in the azure waters abundant with colorful coral reef. Head to one of the many stalls along the shore to sample regional seafood snacks, and try "coco frio," a refreshing local treat of iced coconut milk. Take a moment to appreciate the panoramic views of the surrounding ocean and forest from the clifftop at the entrance. Make Pinones a centerpiece of your Carolina vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Carolina journey planner.
