Where to go in Puerto Rico

Thinkin of going to PR, going 5 days 6 nights, want to do lots of adventure stuff but also surfing in Ricon and maybe snorkeling (is it any good?). How far is Ricon to San Juan? Are there any other surfing destinations? What sorts of adventure stud is there? I want to do stuff like cave tubing, repelling, etc. Please help! Thanks!

Ricón to San Juan is approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours by car depending on traffic. For surfing, Ricón and nearby town is Dubbed the "Caribbean's Hawaii," and October through February are the best surfing months. Winter waves can approach more than 20 feet.

Rincon is about 2-2.5 hours from San Juan:

Take route 22 west to route 2 west. Pass the towns of Aguadilla & Aguada.

(do not take road 115 in Aguadilla). Stay on route 2 south. Pass road 402.

Take the next road to the right: road 115. Follow road 115 towards the town of Rincon.

Thanks! Are there tour companies in Rincon that do ziplining or caving?

And is Rincon a town or an area of PR? I'm a little confused since I haven't seen any pictures of a town, just beaches

Rincon is the name of the main town (like a county seat) and the name of the municipality (roughly the equivalent of a county). The town is spread out over a large area so that you would need a car to get around. There are no tour companies in Rincon that due caving, rapelling or ziplining.
