Below are the six best campgrounds for first-time visitors. Read on and find out more:
1. Cacao Agroforestry Farm
Head to the border of Anasco and Las Marias, and you will find the Cacao Agroforestry Farm. You can plant guanabana, citrus varieties, banana, guava, and other food-producing plants.
If planting activities are not your hobbies, the farm also allows you to birdwatch or meditate. Also, check the nearby coast, rivers, and other landscapes.
2. Playa Flamenco Area de Acampar
Are you planning to visit various Puerto Rican beaches? Flamenco Beach is the best campground on the crescent-shaped coast. You’ll see clear water, white sand, food kiosks, showers, and bathrooms.
3. Punta Maracayo Camping Center
Punta Maracayo Camping makes one of the best modern options for campsites. You’ll find it in rural Hatillo, also known as “El Pueblo sin Sopa” (the town without soup). Talk to a local to get a more authentic story about the origin of the name.
This campsite also has RV parking, with shops and restaurants a short walk away. Cool off at the pools and water slides.
4. Sun Bay Campground
Do you prefer camping closer to nature? Visit Sun Bay. The campgrounds are near flat grassy areas near a beach.
You won’t camp on the sand. However, you are close enough to the beach. Listen to the relaxing rolls of the waves and wind.
The best part about the site is you are close to modern conveniences like bathrooms, showers, and security. The area also offers grills and picnic tables. Camping at Sun Bay Campground will only cost $10 per day since it’s in a national park.
5. Parque Nacional Tres Hermanos
Rustic campers will enjoy the campsites in Tres Hombres. It’s the perfect place to go camping with friends in the northwest region of the island. Spend your day at the beach, play beach volleyball, or explore the nearby Arecibo Observatory and Cueva Ventana.
If you only have a limited budget for camping, Tres Hombres or Tres Hermanos also offers RV parking.
6. El Yunque National Rainforest
Finally, if you want a place with majestic hiking trails, go to El Yunque National Rainforest. At 3088 feet, some areas open to breathtaking and overlooking views of the forest.
