  • Fun day trip with family or friends. Beautiful views, great vegan restaurants nearby, a fun place for children, and can be a super romantic spot for couples as well. A farmer's market is run on Sundays and it's also a popular spot for antique car shows, surfing contests happen nearby, and much more. Rincón is highly recommended if you ever have a few days in the island and transportation to drive around and explore.
