In need of a holiday of sun, sand, and surf? Then look no further when you book a holiday to Aguadilla. Grab an airport rental car and head straight for the azure-coloured water.
Aguadilla is a small Puerto Rican town on the northwestern coast. It is mostly known for its beach (playa), Crash Boat, an untouched paradise with a picturesque pier and beachside bars. Hate the sand? No problem; the town has a massive water park called Las Cascadas, great for all ages. Or, you can hit 18 holes at Punta Borinquen Golf Club which sits along the ocean and promises spectacular sunsets. For a little cultural flare, check out Museo de Arte de Aguadilla y del Caribe, the local art museum and ruins of the old Aguadilla Lighthouse.
