Watersports in Puerto Rico

With hundreds of miles of coastline and an eternal summer weather, Puerto Rico offers a different beach for every day of the year, from the pure white dunes of Isabela to the black volcanic sands near Punta Santiago in Maunabo. You can even choose your level of excitement, from a stroll in the shimmering shallow waters at Luquillo to a romp in the boisterous surf of Rincón.

For visitors looking to get close to the water, but not necessarily submerged in it, Puerto Rico offers various other water sports.  You can be on the water experiencing windsurfing, sailing, fishing the deep seas or the rivers, lakes and bays, kayaking on the Tanamá River or the Caribbean Sea, or body surfing down a rushing mountain stream.

World-class surfing can be enjoyed in nearly every part of the island with waves that can reach twenty-five feet high, but particularly in Rincón, site of the 1968 world surfing championships and host to numerous major competitions.  For more information on surfing, contact the Surfing Association of Puerto Rico at (787) 872-2490 or www.apspr.net.

Whatever your favorite water sport is, you can do it better in, on or near the tropical waters of Puerto Rico.
