There are so many reasons to love Palmas del Mar. But when it comes down to it, the ocean is the thing. The sparkling, clear blue Caribbean is hard to resist — so don’t. Whether you are visiting or living here, having The Yacht Club Marina in your backyard is convenient for boat owners, but can be a great perk for others as well. Just outside our Caribbean beach resort is Palmas Drive, one of the main roads in Palmas del Mar that puts everything within easy reach.
World Class Fishing
Puerto Rico offers renowned world-class fishing, whether it is a deep-sea fishing trip or leisurely afternoon of inshore fishing. Palmas del Mar is on Puerto Rico’s southeast coast, where you can go sport fishing on the Continental Shelf and the two seamounts. For a shorter excursion, choose the four-hour Continental Shelf trip, as this is only about 5 to 12 miles offshore. The two seamounts require a full day, but they do tend to offer better results. The rich, deep waters surrounding Puerto Rico are full of some of the world’s best big game fishing, including white marlin, blue marlin, mahi-mahi, tuna, wahoo, and sailfish. For the novice, there’s a shorter trip, just two miles from the Palmas del Mar Marina. Puerto Rico’s inshore waters also offer excellent day fishing with tarpon, snook, jack crevalle and many other species. With an abundance of fishing charters offered through our vacation discovery packages, guests will be able to go on the adventure of a lifetime. Take your pick!
Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
For those interested in more active pursuits, you can begin many types of ocean-bound excursions from the Palmas del Mar Marina as well. If you are excited to explore the colorful world under the water, our vacation discovery package will equip you with all the essentials that you need to have a mesmerizing snorkeling trip. Most trips take up a good part of the day, as they include a boat trip, at least an hour spent snorkeling, perhaps some beach time, and a meal or snack.
