Best Puerto Rico Beach
Coqui del Mar Guest House is nestled in a beachside community, 1-minute walk to Ocean Park beach. It is a gay friendly beach and the favorite beach for locals We are not a beach front hotel but we are super close.. We are 10-minutes drive to SJU International Airport (Luis Muñoz Marin Rivera), and walkable to several restaurants, bars, and a grocery store. There is a public bus to get to Old San Juan (for .75 cents exact change) or take our free bikes to explore the area on your own. Ocean Park has a much more “locals” feel than the other tourist areas, such as Condado or Isla Verde, which is one reason that is the best beach in Puerto Rico..

Directions from SJU Airport to Coqui del Mar Guest House:
Know that GOOGLE Maps (like the one here) will take you to the outside of our street gate, not to our property. YOU MUST ENTER OUR STREET via the park and Calle General Patton.
To get to our location from SJU Airport, you several choices: 1) UBER (This is the most convenient and is reasonably priced..typically less than $10 – USE CODE “TRQJC” for a discounted first ride) 2) Rental car (we prefer Charlie’s Rental Cars for the best service – 787-728-2481) or www.hotwire.com for the best price. 3) TAXI – we do not recommend taxi’s as the rates are much higher typically than UBER (about $20 or more from the airport). 4) CITY BUS LINE T-5 This is the cheapest way (.75 cents exact change). However, it takes significantly longer than an UBER (compare 50 minutes to 10 minutes). You would get off the bus at the Parque Barbosa station, walk down Calle Las Americas towards the beach until making a right on Calle General Patton. Stay to the left and this turns into our street, Calle General del Valle.
