At times great surfing,,,I don't surf,,,but fun watching
them all,,,gets a little crowded...
Some of the best surfing in the world and not really known unless you're into it are Rincon and some other places on the NW coast close to the town/city of Isabella. My wife remembers as a little kid going with her older sisters who went to meet surf boys to the Rincon area for The World Surfing Championship waaaaaaay back in 1968. She said her sisters were really hos and were always after the surf and military boys. Ramey airforce base was just up the road from them and her sisters would hangout (literally) trying to pickup airmen. To this day...it has the longest runway in the Caribbean that can handle any size of jumbo jet as well as the numerous B52 missions that started out of their during the Vietnam war.
Chuckling at hos.
The US gave Ramey airforce base to the Puerto Ricans,,,
they were living all over the base what like late 70s,,,
in the base housing,,,
guess right after the Nam...
good deep sea fishing...
It's now the Rafael Hernandez International Airport. They do however still use it as a military airbase and still have a few active duty personal there too. You can get flights directly to the west side of the island. No need to fly into San Juan in the east and fight traffic to get west. There's still housing and some guest cottages or hotels on the land too.
I took the DC3 or Beachcraft from San Juan to the west,,,
did drive once,,,and drove back a couple of times,,,but yeah,,,
traffic was interesting,,,nice if direct flight,,,those things would
just make altitude,,,and then start the desend,,,girl on DC3,,,
had little push cart,,,bucket of ice,,,plastic cups,,,bottle of Don,,,
saying "Rum on the Rocks???",,,that was it,,,no water,,,no orange juice,,,
rum and ice,,,or forget it...
