Rene Syler is off to the surf cap­i­tal of the Caribbean — Rin­con, Puer­to Rico, where Hei­di and Kath­leen plan a week-long vaca­tion for a group of friends! With a bud­get of $4,500 — $5,500 for the stay, they can’t wait to see what prop­er­ties Rene has in store!

Rin­con is a stun­ning Puer­to Rican beach town where peo­ple go to unplug from their hec­tic lives and immerse them­selves in the surf cul­ture spiked with a Caribbean fla­vor! It’s about two hours west of Puer­to Rico’s cap­i­tal San Juan, locat­ed in the north­west cor­ner of the island where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic Ocean.

After the Surf­ing World Cham­pi­onships were held here in 1968, tourism in Rin­con explod­ed. Surfers vis­it from around the world to ride some of their infa­mous twen­ty five foot waves.

But if you don’t surf, it’s not a prob­lem because there are plen­ty of oth­er water activ­i­ties to dive in to. Try scu­ba div­ing, snor­kel­ing, pad­dling or just relax in the warm tide.

And even though this is a water lover’s par­adise, there is a lot to do on land, too. Check out El Faro Park and the famous Pun­ta Higueras Light­house or enjoy some empanadas in Rincon’s quaint town plaza. Then, at the end of the day, kick back and watch one of the many amaz­ing views of the sun­set.

This is the per­fect place for Hei­di, Kath­leen and a group of friends to get away from their nor­mal lives and have a relax­ing trop­i­cal retreat. Their per­fect Sweet Retreat has the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria:

  • At least 5 bed­rooms
  • A great kitchen for enter­tain­ment
  • A relax­ing out­door space ide­al­ly with a pool
  • On or with­in walk­ing dis­tance to the beach

With a bud­get of $4,500 to $5,500 for the week, about $1,000 per per­son, these two are ready to get to work!
