Highlights of Humacao?

We are staying in the area for 4 days and are wanting to know what are the highlights that are close by this area or further south-west (we will be in the Loquillo 4 days prior).

Best beach or tour?

Thanks!

Humacao is not far from Guavate in the municipality of Cayey. Guavate is known for their roast pig restaurants on Rt 184 in the central mountains. Puerto Ricans and tourists from all over the island converge on this one location to sample the food. Entire families can be seen here and often there is music, live bands and dancing. It can be very festive. Best to go at noon.

There are a few activities listed here:

Guavate is a great suggestion. Lots of fun. Saturday and Sunday are the big days to go.

have you considered changing your plans? Humacao is a great place and has some beach area but, most of what you would do from there will be done from Luquillo.

Why not spend 4 days on Vieques instead. There are many things to do there and the beaches are amazing.

There is a nice nature reserve there, where you can rent bikes or kayaks, or just walk.

You cannot go from Humacao to Vieques or Culebra. Options are ferry from Fajardo or flight from SJ (SJU or SIG) or Ceiba.

@ Flowerfarm I have tried a few times to find the Nature Reserve, but never found it. All streets kept getting me back onto Rd. # 53. Do you know how to get there?

Yes, it is right on RT 3, km 74.3

We usually get off RT 53 at the 1st Humacao exit (maybe 31) and then go north east (to the right ) on RT 3. It is on the right side of the road, not too far up. It is fenced.

Or go down the coast on RT 3 and it is a little bit past the Punta Santiago beach/vacation rentals (then it is on the left).
