My experience in Cabo Rojo has been average; it has its pros and cons. I love the beaches, their my escape when I need to relax. I also like the way people treat each other in this town. Its as if everyone is a big family. I would like to see change or a certain level of improvement in the job opportunities. Its very difficult to find a job here.

I’ve been living here since I was born and all I can say is that it cannot get better than this. It is an amazing place to live since it has breathtaking beaches, everything you need within local distance and it is in general a very safe town.

Its a small and quiet town which is mostly made up of senior citezens. Although there is not much to do, its beautiful beaches make up for it.

Rustic property of two levels completely equipped. Capacity for 8 adults. It has 3 bedrooms with A/C, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, outside shower, beautiful terrace and large patio around property. nine0013

A few years ago I acquired a beautiful property in the south west area of ​​Puerto Rico, which every time I can I still use it to escape the daily routine. In 2017 I remembered a story related to the property that belonged to a former hunter. That’s when my wife and I saw potential and decided to enter this world of property rentals, with this new concept called «Hunter’s Cabin PR».
I am a fan of traveling, spending it with family and friends, going to the beach, staying in different places and that is what I will try to reflect on my properties.
I like to meet people from different parts of the world and I hope to connect with you either as a host or as a traveler. nine0013

Dead end quiet street, 2 to 8 minute drive to all sandy beach’s of the area. 3 minute driving to town and restaurants, bars, gas station and more.
