Fajardo Travel Guide

#

Fajardo, on the east coast of Puerto Rico, is the island's scuba diving hub. Dozens of boating companies offer charters and diving excursions on a range of craft, most based at the town's Puerto del Rey Marina, the largest marina in the Caribbean.

Besides having two beautiful beaches just minutes away from town, there are also several uninhabited small islets just offshore, surrounded by coral reefs. The neighbouring islands of Vieques and Culebra are reached via ferry and air charters, with Fajardo in striking distance of a variety of water-sports playgrounds.

Fajardo itself does not offer much in the way of attractions, but it serves as an accommodation centre for this delightful part of Puerto Rico. It is also a social hub for holidaymakers thanks to the presence of the luxurious Wyndham El Conquistador resort, which has a lively casino and world-class golf course, among other attractions.
