Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Maricao is a small mountain village in the heart of the coffee growing mountains in the western region of Puerto Rico. People are very nice and the surroundings are peaceful and beautiful. Year round comfortable temperature (no heating or air conditioning needed!). Great place for nature lovers, photographers, hikers, and bird watchers. Only an hour away from great beaches with snorkling, boating, fishing, surfing, and great seafood restaurants. Close to beaches and tourist attractions, but without the heat, crowds and mosquitos of the coast. Nice temperatures year round, never too hot or too cold. Other attractions include the Camuy Caves and the Arecibo Radiotelescope Observatory. One hour from scenic Ponce and three hours from San Juan. Our 70 acre farm and botanical garden borders the 5000 acre Maricao State Forest, with extensive trails for hiking and excellent birdwatching.
