Rincon is the home of Buena Vida Retreats, LLC and the location for our VERY FIRST Wellness & Yoga Retreat. Rincon is located on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico. Literally translated to “Corner,” Rincon is where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet. Although, according to The Official Tourism Association of Rincon, “the name originates from Don Gonzalo Rincon, a 16th century landowner who allowed various poor families to reside on his land.” Rincon is known as the town of beautiful sunsets (for a very good reason) and is home to many amazing beaches and perfect waves. The surf season typically runs from November through May, with the largest swells usually arriving between January and March. When the waves are flat, Rincon is the perfect place to go snorkel, diving, fishing, or stand-up paddleboarding, with other incredible outdoor excursions just a short drive away. Unique to other parts of the island, Rincon is a melting pot of people and cultures from around the world. We are lucky to have an abundance of good food, nightlife, and other fun community events. Every Thursday night there is a local Art Walk in the Town Plaza, and every Sunday morning the town gathers in the same area for an incredible Farmer’s Market.
