Isla Ratones: An Island Too Pretty for its Name

February 24th, 2013

…Isla Piñero) is a tiny island (about 1 acre total), located about ¼ mile off the west coast of Joyuda in Cabo Rojo, in the south-west part of Puerto Rico. You can only get there by boat, and I imagine that space on the beach can get limited, especially on weekends in the summer months. But during the winter months, you will probably have the island to yourself (as we did in February). The island is managed by the DRNA (Departamento de R…

Joyuda – A Seafood Paradise

December 1st, 2011

…s one area in Puerto Rico that should be known as the seafood heaven — the seaside community of Joyuda, in Cabo Rojo. All up and down Route 102 in the Joyuda area, you can find loads of restaurants that specialize in seafood. Most are nice, sit-down places, but some are more of a bar atmosphere.
