Getting Around

There is much to do within walking distance from the villa. Take a stroll on the beach in the morning and see the sun rise over the laguna at the end of the beach.

Swim with the sea turtles directly in front of the villa or snorkel the reef at the end of the beach or in the laguna.

Bring your beach tennis racket if you would like to join one of the pickup games on the beach.

Or you can take a longer walk down to the end of Cibuco.

As you see, there are a lot of options to enjoy within walking distance.

Parks & Nature

Puerto Nuevo Beach

Great family beach – snorkeling (sea turtles love to swim here), unique lagoon ideal for young children, kayak rentals, food trucks, locals love this beach!

Cueva Del Indio

Breathtaking views of sea caves on the Atlantic. If you are in good condition, you might consider climbing into some of them. Cost to enter the area is $5 per person. Hike over the rock formations to a secluded beach on the other side.

Playa Los Tubos

Beautiful beach. Nice wave action. Must be careful of the surf condition. You may park at the shelter area, or continue a bit further down the road. Just pull off the road to park. Be careful not to go into the sand as you could get stuck. Picturesque crystal clear water and light colored sand.

La Poza De Las Mujeres

One of our amazing local beaches. Take a small (0.5 mile) hike on a trail (you might need to ask the beach attendant where to find the trail as it is hidden by a large rock when you are on the beach) to a secluded beach with a cave where you can watch the waves come into the cave from the inside. This is difficult to explain without experiencing it.


Toro Verde Adventure Park

With the most incredible views of the central mountains of Puerto Rico, Toro Verde became the largest aerial adventure park in the world with the longest zipline on Earth certified by Guinness World Records, offering adrenaline packed activities on a world class level for all the family to enjoy. It has been featured in numerous travel and adventure magazines and has won many awards for its tremendous inspirational attractions.

Places To Eat

Ocean Bakery

From the house, walk west on the Malecon to the first intersection, San Demetrio. Turn left and proceed a few blocks. Ocean Bakery serves delicious breakfast and lunches as well as homemade desserts.

Pa’ Casa e SiSi’s

About halfway down the Malecon from Ensueño, SiSi makes artisan pastelillos. Hours vary. SiSi loves visitors and will tell you all you want to know about Vega Baja. Tell her Megan and John sent you!


Food truck kiddy-corner across the street from Costa Norte. Really great pinchos (kabobs). Shrimp, pork or chicken. Icy cold virgin piña coladas. Tell Polo that Megan sent you!

Costa Norte

Find the menu in the top drawer in the bar cabinet. You may call ahead for your order. You can take your delicious meal back to the terrace and enjoy the oceanside. Costa Norte has the best mojitos on the island!

Salt And Pepper

The atmosphere is nothing to brag about, but the food is fantastic! Family owned and run restaurant. The owner visited us, and told us, “If it is not on the menu, but we have the ingredients, we will make it for you.” Outstanding food.

Felos Food Truck

Green food truck just down from Costa Norte. Fresh seafood and other dishes. I highly recommend the mixed seafood salad. The prices may appear a bit steep for a food truck, but the portions are large.

Havana Beach Club

Havana Beach Club is my favorite restaurant in Vega Baja for a special night out. Fresh seafood and Puerto Rican dishes served ocean side. They have a nice selection of tropical drinks and excellent service.

Nearby Hikes And Walks

Los Tubos MTB Trail

Easy, accessible hike about 10 minutes (5 miles) from Ensueño. We recommend this any time of day. Park in the lot and proceed to your left. Go up the gravel road and go right at the top of the hill. Keep following the path around to an incredible scenic overlook. The path continues to a remote, secluded stunning beach. The whole walk takes a leisurely hour. Enjoy!

Área Recreativa Tortuguero

12 miles of hiking and mountain biking paths. Google “Acceso Área Recreativa Tortuguero” park and head towards the shelter. You will find the trailhead close to the shelter. This is a dense jungle, with very nice walking/biking paths. I recommend walking during the week as on the weekends, there are many bikers.

Cibuco Trail

Exit Ensueño and turn left. Pass the beach (Puerto Nuevo) and keep hugging the coastline road. The road will dead end at the Havana Beach Club. Do not be alarmed by the stray dogs and horses. They have never paid attention to us. You will see what we call “The Puerto Rican Safari” stray dogs and horses. Many locals walk this route in the early morning.
