Aguadilla

Destroyed over the centuries by earthquakes and hurricanes, resilient Aguadilla now serves as one of Puerto Rico's top surfing destinations.

Change things up with these side-trips from Aguadilla: Aventura Cueva Ventana (in Arecibo) and Parque Nacional de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy (in Camuy). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Jobos Beach, stop by West Paradise, get your game on at Ice Skating, and don't miss a visit to Monumento al Cacique Mabodamaca.
