Puerto rico dorado: Luxury Puerto Rico Resorts | Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Things to Do in Dorado

Balneario Manuel Morales is one of the most popular beaches in the North. 

Strike gold in this luxury-minded town on the northern coast.

With a name that literally means “golden,” it’s safe to say that Dorado is one of the most luxurious destinations in Puerto Rico. Between its mesmerizing golden coastline, lavish resort, and three immaculate Robert Trent Jones-designed golf courses, Dorado is the first choice of those seeking relaxation, privacy, and plenty of stunning natural beauty.

Just 15 miles (24 km) west of San Juan, Dorado is a vibrant town with much to explore, including museums, historic homes, and unspoiled beaches. Whether you’re checking in for the week or just visiting for the day, here’s what to do in Dorado:

Learn about everything from Taíno culture to the Spanish conquest at the Museo y Centro Cultural Casa del Rey

Museo y Centro Cultural Casa del Rey

Dating back to 1823, this former Spanish garrison is now a museum that depicts the story of Puerto Rico’s early history, from the Taíno culture to the Spanish conquest.   Museo y Centro Cultural Casa del Rey also houses a lion’s share of the island’s colonial relics, including antique furniture created for the king and queen of Spain.

The Museo de Arte e Historia de Dorado.

You’ll learn a lot about the history of Dorado at this fascinating art and archeological museum. Exhibits include items recovered from excavations near Ojo del Buey Beach, including pottery fragments, jewelry, tools, and even the bones of La India, a young female who died during pre-Taíno times. Admission is free.

Balneario Manuel Morales

With diamond dust sand and aquamarine waters, this astonishingly beautiful beach is one of the north’s most popular hangouts. Much of the shore is shaded with palms and other lush trees. You can hang your hammock, set up a small barbecue, and make a day out of your visit. There are restrooms, showers, parking spaces, and on-duty lifeguards at the beach.

Ojo Del Buey Beach

Translating to “ox’s eye” in English, this beach got its name from an unusual rock formation in the shape of an ox’s head. At Ojo del Buey, you can enjoy one of Dorado’s most pristine beaches with calm waters and a laid-back atmosphere. Local legend has it that pirate Roberto Cofresí buried his treasure there, so no one will look at you funny if you decide to dig for the loot.

For those who share a passion for the game, three distinct Tournament Player Club golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., await at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. A PGA favorite, these three courses have challenging layouts and extraordinary scenery that are fun for players of every skill level.

The Watermill

Located inside the resort, this aquatic wonderland is fashioned after a traditional sugar mill, and features two 30-foot water slides, a lazy river with a wave machine, and multiple swimming pools. The Watermill also has a lounge area, as well as an exceptional outdoor venue for events. This immersive water park caters to all ages, and is a great place to bring the kids and enjoy a sunny day.
