Summer in Rincon
(Thu, 23 May 2013)
A Flamboyan at Tres Palmas in Rincon
We all know how many people flock to Rincon during the colder winter months, great surfing, warm water and months away from harsh northern winters make Rincon an indeal winter
vacation spot, but did you know Rincon has a vibrant tourist season virtually year round?
When the weather up north is thawing out and the surf in Rincon mellows out, although there are occasional summer swells, Rincon transforms into Summer mode; light surf, perfect
for standup paddleboarding and snorkeling, beautiful landscapes of brilliant flamboyans providing a perfect backdrop for the Puerto Rico destination weddings of June and less people means great rates on lodging!
Many of the local businesses adjust their hours of operation during the summer hours, for updated summer hours and restaurant menus, see our Summer Business Hours Page and to keep up to date on what is going on in Rincon,
