Welcome to Fajardo & Around


Fajardo also reigns as one of Puerto Rico’s biggest water-activity centers. Around Fajardo you can do everything from diving in the waters of the coral-rich La Cordillera islands to kayaking one of Puerto Rico’s three bioluminescent bays – the very popular Laguna Grande, which is part of the very worthwhile Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve. A few miles south, boaters enjoy Puerto del Rey, one of the largest marinas in the Caribbean.

Downtown Fajardo itself, founded in 1760, has little to show for 250 years of history. Just north, though, the extended neighborhood of Las Croabas is a good place to start a visit. Besides the nature reserve, it features the beguiling beach, Playa Seven Seas.
