Where to stay in Puerto Rico

Hello ... I am planning on going to Puerto Rico in August for 2 weeks, but not sure where to go.

If you can suggestion locations/accomodations that would be great.

I don't drive, so where I go I will have to find some type of transportaion.

Thank you.

Also, what kind of accomodations do you prefer: 4 stars resort, hotel, a condo apt rental? Are you looking to stay on or near a nice beach? Are you planning to rent a car?

I would like to surf, but not sure it's a good time of year to do that since it's August. I don't drive, so I won't be renting a car.

I would like a nice beach to relax on and also be able to do excursions. Pretty much open to see whatever PR has to offer. Culture, History, Sports, Caves, Rain Forest , etc.

As for accommodations, I don't need anything fancy. We are 2 women travelling together. Would like somewhere that is affordable, nice, with 2 beds and hot water. Not looking for a luxury resort.

Thanks for your help.

I wondering if Casa de Playa in Isla verde still exist. I was there 12 years ago. Nothing fancy but it was clean and on the beach. walking distance to restaurants, casinos and stores. I think I paid approximately $70 a night back then. Maybe an expert has more information on this particular hotel. The place is across from 7 Eleven. Again, not sure if it still exist.

it still exists, but 7-eleven is long gone, now you have a new puerto rican restaurant, a casual one.

Thank you very much. I don't really want to stay in a big city.

Was thinking of going to Rincon and travelling around from there.

Would that be a good idea ...

What you mentioned is kind of telling me you should stay at Rincon. There's plenty of inns and guest houses there. I'm not very familiar with them, can someone else recommend a few?
