Maria's is a family owned exclusive waterfront villa on the gorgeous Maria's Beach in Rincón, Puerto Rico. Maria and her son Ramon lived on the beach for over 50 years, becoming beloved residents of the town. Maria was a surrogate host of the 1968 World Surfing Championships that took place on Maria's Beach. This “town of beautiful sunsets” (and lots more to see and do) and the villa built in Maria and Ramon's memory is the perfect setting for large gatherings such as family reunions, weddings and more.
History of Maria's Beach
Rincon became famous by hosting the 1968 World Surfing Championship. Most of the competitions were held at Domes and Maria's Beaches. ABC's Wide World of Sports coverage of the '68 Rincon Championship was the first time ever that network TV sports covered a surfing event (You can visit the Aviones Boys Facebook page for photos and newspaper clippings documenting the competition). In addition they have old pictures of Rincon and of what surfing life was like in the 60's to the present. Surfer's Beach in Aguadilla had a sign stating that surfing was “only allowed under the auspices of the Surfer's Club Association by order of the Base Commander”. The 1968 World Surfing Championship was celebrated on November 1st at the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum in California.
Surfing continues to be strong in Puerto Rico. The 1988 and the 2007 World Surfing Championships along with many qualifying heats have also been held in Rincon.
Rincon is also known as the “town of beautiful sunsets”. You do not need to surf to enjoy your stay here. Whale watching is another popular winter activity. During the summer when the surf is calmer standup paddleboarding is becoming increasingly popular. Beaches south of the point are calm year round for swimming.

Punta Higuero Lighthouse: Built in 1892 and renovated in 1922, this historic lighthouse is located just north of Rincon and is still fully operational today. Also referred to as El Faro Lighthouse, it rises more than 100 feet above the Caribbean waters, offering a spectacular ocean view from its observation deck. Maritime buffs will enjoy the culture-rich nautical museum, complete with shipwreck artifacts.
El Faro Park: Surrounding the historic lighthouse that is its namesake, El Faro Park is a mecca for surfers and whale watchers. Telescopes are available for those hoping to catch a sneak peek at marine life or to soak in the spectacular sunsets.
Isla Desecheo: Its rich, interesting history makes this remote Puerto Rican island the stuff of local legends. Designated as a National Wildlife Refuge, it's currently uninhabited by humans, although Desecheo was once occupied by pirates, bandits, and the U.S. military, who used the island for artillery testing and training. Today, divers flock to Desecheo for its calm, crystal-clear waters that are ideal for scuba-diving and snorkeling. The Desecheo Dive Site provides guided tours of the waters and coral reefs surrounding the island.
Mona Passage: A channel of water running between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, the Mona Passage is traveled by thousands of migrating humpback whales each winter, making it a popular destination for those clamoring for a peek at the majestic maritime creatures. Its rugged currents make it a preferred spot for intermediate and advanced surfers.
Rincon Surf Museum: Here, resident and visiting surfers can view more than 100 vintage surfboards from the 1950s and 1960s, as well as other surfing paraphernalia. The museum is open to the public sporadically throughout the year, but appointments can be made for private tours....Read more
