where to locate

We are looking to stay 4-5 nights in either Rio Grande or Fajardo so that we can be close to the rainforest, zip lining and taking the ferry to Vieques. We will have a 13 year old with us. Which place is the better. We would like to stay right on a beach with pools, etc. Thanks

The Fajardo Inn isn't on the beach but they have a real nice pool area with slide and I believe a basketball hoop in the pool also mini golf at a cost.

Rio Mar in Rio Grande may be your best bet.

The resorts in the Rio Grande vicinity from West to East are:

St. Regis Bahia Beach - $$$$$, New and Beautiful, exclusive 5 star, Great Golf, quiet,a little out of the way.

Gran Melia - really great Tahitian setting, great pools / activities, Best Golf, beach leaves something to be desired.

Wyndham Rio Mar - Best Location, beautiful resort setting, great beach, golf, rooms could use refresh, check out private villa rentals on VRBO.com.

El Conquistador - in Fajardo 25 min west, best kids resort, beach on private island, water park, near bio bay further from rain forest etc.

El Conquistador Resort. The resort sits atop a bluff overlooking the ocean with breathtaking sweeping panoramic views. Their beach is on an off-shore private island. They have a water park that the 13 year old will love.

We stayed at the Rio Mar with our 3 teen boys 2 years ago and loved it. It's close to the rain forest and the beach and pools are wonderful.
