Sandy Beach was our destination for the day, and we took along our beach clothes and books to hang out for a while. We stopped in the Mango Beach Shop to check out their local souvenirs.
Wally got a new Puerto Rico golf hat for his souvenir.We parked at the Tamboo Restaurant public beach access lot and went to the beach to relax while waiting for the restaurant to open for lunch. There were quite a few surfers bobbing about, waiting on waves. It was pretty calm in December – the big waves come later.Time for lunch at Tamboo! They’ve been written up in numerous magazines as one of the top beach bars in the world, so I wanted to check them out! You can read all about them on their website: http://www.besidethepointe.com/
Great view from Tamboo…We ordered a sandwich and a wrap and they were both good washed down with some cold beer. It was time for afternoon siesta, so we drove back to our vacation rental, Casa Blanca, south of Rincon. For dinner, we chose La Cambija in downtown Rincon, and it was hopping. This was one of the most delicious meals we had while in Puerto Rico. I ordered conch fritters (the round balls) and Wally had the Caribbean ceviche. It was soooo good!
I loved the local houses all lit up for Christmas – this one was especially festive!
That’s all for now. Next up, we leave Rincon and head west to the opposite end of Puerto Rico for the second half of our trip in Rio Grande.
