My husband and I grew up in Aguadilla. Our love of Crash Boat Beach brings us back every year. Although, we have family and friends in Aguadilla, Jerry always wanted a place in Puerto Rico that he could call our “home away from home.” When Jerry learned about Puerta del Mar he jumped at the opportunity to purchase a condo with a view of the ocean. We have found it to be the perfect place for family vacations as well as a quiet, relaxing and fun getaway for couples or a group of friends. Our 2 boys absolutely love it there. We have lived in Maryland for 26 years and have vacationed in Aguadilla every year except for one. What was once the playground of our youth is now “a dream” come true and we are so glad that we could share it with you! Liz and Jerry, Maryland
Liz purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Liz chose Borinquen
Life doesn’t get any better than this! Our sub-penthouse overlooks our favorite beach on the island, Crash Boat Beach, which is just a 3 min. drive from the condo. Jerry always dreamt of having a place in Aguadilla with an ocean view from where he could watch the sun set into the ocean at the end of each day. He (and you too) can do this now from the privacy of our sub-penthouse balcony. You can fly into the Raphael Hernandez International Airport (BQN) and in less than 10 minutes you are in “your dream” home away from home. The condo is perfectly situated to explore the northwest and western part of the island. Some of the best beaches on the island are in Aguadilla and its surrounding area. The area is very popular for scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing although other water sports abound. We are pretty familiar with the area and welcome the opportunity to help you plan your stay. In the condo you will find, in addition to tourist magazines, detailed information of area attractions, things to do, places to eat, and more.
What makes this Condo unique
The ocean view from the condo balcony is stunning, every sunset is a captivating sight, the weather’s divine all year round, and the local beaches are better than ever. The view of the whales migrating west during the winter months is definitely a must see. Awarded the 2008 Best Resort-type Living Project in Puerto Rico, Puerta del Mar (Door to the Sea) is an oasis of privacy and lush tropical splendor. You will love the hospitality we provide our guests and the well appointed amenities you will find in the condo. The master suite with its king size bed is an oasis of privacy unto itself. For your convenience we provide beach essentials - towels, cooler, chairs, and more. Our fully equipped kitchen has all the modern conveniences to make meal preparation a pleasure if you choose to cook. The Infinity pool and its surrounding amenities offer all you need to enjoy hours of comfort and relaxation under the sun or shade. Life doesn't get any better than this!

Lovely, spacious and as advertised
Prior to arrival, Liz sent us everything we needed - directions, detailed in/out instructions, amenities, area info, etc. Her parents met us to get in & settled. The condo was perfect for a couple & 2 teens. Super clean and comfy. Well stocked. Appreciated use of the beach chairs, bags, and cooler. We purchased and left a beach umbrella as some beaches have scant shade, esp after Maria. We lost power for about an hour one night, but had flashlights & candles; ended up by the pool to catch the breeze while we waited.. It blipped another 2 times one night. Not totally uncommon but it was fine. Close to lots of shopping and beaches. HIGHLY recommendable condo.
Tip: Driving on PR-2 through all the small towns takes longer than you think. Plan accordingly.
Recommend using TripAdvisor to find restaurants and excursions. But, don’t be afraid of the food trucks! Good PR food! Two gems...Verde Azul Surf Shop on PR-110, for boards/lessons/snorkel rentals (Scott & G were the best!)...The Coffee Spot on PR-110 has awesome breakfast & coffee (tip: pistachio waffles!). Snorkel at Shacks Beach. Swim/surf at Jobos Beach. Dabble in waves or soak up the gorgeousness at hidden Punta Borinquen beach, near the ruins. Our 3rd time in PR, but 1st to west end. Not our last !!
Beautiful vacation condo
The condo had all the comforts of home. Her dad met us with the keys to the condo. Her parents were happy to accommodate us with any requests we had. The condo was beautifully furnished. The view of the pool and ocean from the balcony was amazing. The condo was clean and well kept. It was a great place to vacation.
Work Related Travel
The condo was an excellent choice for my time in Aguadilla. It was well equipped and the pictures are true to the property description. The views are incredible and the management team of the property are top notch. Everything went well for our stay there, and I will definitely rent again if the property is available.
Home away from home!!
We're repeat guests, and boy, could I get used to this place. Everything you possibly need is included in this unit, as listed, it is so well maintained and has an incredible vantage point when it comes to the stunning view. Sunsets are breathtaking, and one night a late night thunderstorm in the distance toward Desecheo island provided a nightime light show that was spectacular. The hosts are great, Don Gilbert, even carried one of our luggage pieces up to the unit, even though I insisted he didnt have to. We will definitely be back. THANKS!!!!!
My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon here in Aguadilla. The condo was top notch and everything you would desire for a tropical get away. The views from the back porch are amazing, as well as from the rest of the complex. The condo was more than accommodating with everything from cooking ware to scuba gear and more. A truly great place with reasonable rates.
An unbelievable experience
This was my fifth time to PR and my family's second time and we wanted to try the west side of the island. The view from this terrace is breathtaking. Every morning it was coffee and the tranquility of the ocean view. With three teenagers and my wife the prestine apartment was spacious enough to give everyone their area. Aida and Gilbert were insightful in their recommendations not to mention their generosity regarding typical island fruit. Everything and I mean everything was perfect. If your considering then just do it, you won't regret the beautiful experience this accommodation and the surrounding area will have to offer you.
Thank you for your kind words. We agree, we can't think of a better way to start the day - a spectacular ocean view while sipping freshly brewed coffee (drip or espresso). Fresh island fruits are our favorite for ice cold smoothies after a hot day at the beach. Grilling fresh fish from the fish market at Crashboat Beach is another must for us. You can't beat this location - breathtaking sunsets, convenient to the highway, under 10 minutes from great beaches. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back!
