Are you travelling on a budget? Do you still want to be where the action is? Then consider the Casa del Caribe, in Condado. Located just off the beach, a few blocks from Baldorioty de Castro Highway, it's convenient to Old San Juan and the airport. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a 24-hour Walgreens on Ashford Avenue.
The accomodations are pretty plain, without a lot of fancy amenities. The plumbing is less than ideal. But the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a small place, so they know all their guests. The Casa del Caribe has the feel of staying at a private residence, rather than a big hotel. If you want a nice, quiet place, without spending a lot, it's perfect.
Unique Quality: Location, location, location. Plus the homey atmosphere.
Directions: Just south of the intersection of Ashford and Caribe streets, in front of the Marriott.
Unique Quality: This is quite basic really but iff you just want a place to crash after a day of beach and dancing salsa and don't plan of using the common ammenities of modern hotels this is perfect for you. It's just a block away from the beach, in the middle of action but at the same time on a very nice relaxed lateral street. The property has a very nice patio full of tropical trees, a fountain and a big cage with a talking parrot (so please watch your language!!). Guest could take a book from the library and enjoy it under a tree.
My 19 year old daughter just surprised me with a mother-daughter trip to PR for my 53rd birthday!! We leave March 9th for 4 nights. She booked us into the Casa del Caribe and rented an economy car (she's a college student and is doing this on her budget!!!)
I went to PR a few times in the 1970's and stayed at a great little hotel called Duffy's. It looks like Casa del Caribe is the same type of place.
Anyone have any knowledge of this little place?
My daughter and I are hiker/backpacker/low key kind of people (I'm an aging hippie and she is a eco-conscious/cultural adventurer).
We're going to El Yunque and Culebre and seeing Old San Juan. Tell me what has changed since the 1970's and what we should be doing!!!!!!
You might wish to have your daughter visit the following web site: www.statravel.com. It might be able to help her save a bit of money. Another site that might be of help: www.whatsonwhen.com. Enjoy your vacation ! Gary
If she hasn't done so, she could enter "Puerto Rico Eco-Vacations" in her search block. You get lots of hits. Gary
Thanks for the information, Gary.
You are welcome ! Gary
