It is a real map: unfolded, its a a 2-foot by 3-foot detailed map.  It's beachproof / waterproof so it will withstand all your Rincon adventures and make the trip home and undoubtedly back again, since most folks who come to Rincon start planning their next trip before they leave.

The Rincon Lizard Map and Guide will help you find the best places for outdoor exploration, you a key to what Ricon is legendary for - its many off the beaten path beaches.  

On the Guide side, you will learn everything you need to get started exploring Rincon, a bit about its history, descriptions of its beaches, detailed surf break descriptions.  

The Surf descriptions were written by longtime Rincon surfer and local Melissa Taylor of Puntas Surf Supplies so you can better understand what you're about to drop in to. There are 17 different surf breaks identified on the Lizard Rincon map and 16 different beaches waiting for your bare feet to wander along. One (of many) fantastic things about Rincon is each beach has a unique personality.  

With the Lizard Map you'll find trails to beaches hidden among rock outcrops and historic retaining walls, beaches under shady almond trees, beaches with big waves, steep banks and vegetation as well as long expanses of flat beaches with gentle, shallow areas perfect for wading in and exploring. You can walk the southern beaches along the Caribbean Sea and compare those to the northern beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

Rincon is unique because it is on the western shore of Puerto Rico that spans both bodies of water. Surfers flock to the northern beaches with the surf breaks, while swimmers flock to the southern beaches with their gentle waves. The Lizard Map and Guide will also give you an idea where you may want to spend your nights in Rincon, as each of Rincon's many neighborhoods and sections offer a different visitor landscape and experience.

As you walk, sit and sun on Rincon's beaches you will gaze up to the mountains that rise steeply above the water. With a Lizard Map you can take a tour into those hills where you will discover winding mountain roads and stunning views, local eateries and roadside bars tucked away in the hills. Highway 412 follows the spine of the mountain with 360 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

Hurricane Maria, Rincón and Puerto Rico Recovery  

Is Puerto Rico Ready for Visitors? Yes!  We just returned from Rincon and can tell you first-hand that Rincon is beautiful, and open for business, welcoming tourists better than ever before and thriving. The community is extremely welcoming - as always - and the business community is even expanding. 

Rincon recovery has been accelerated relative to many other parts of the island. A year since Maria, Rincon is already off to a strong tourist season, and is thriving and more than ready for your visit.  One change noticeable to returning visitors is that some of the restaurants and shops, (including some of those listed on your Rincon Lizard Map & Guide), have closed, while others have moved, changed names and many new businesses have opened.  For up to date information about local businesses, you will want to check out the Tourism Association of Rincon website. 

Due to the strength of Puerto Rico's communities, and the resilience of the people of Puerto Rico, the island is recovering, but recovery in some of the most heavily impacted and disadvantaged areas will take much more time.  We hope you will consider continuing to support ongoing Puerto Rico recovery efforts. 

Like many businesses and people with ties to the island, on the heels of Hurricane Maria, Purple Lizard Maps did what we could to help.  We gave Lizard Maps to recovery workers in Rincon, made a special digital recovery effort version of the map for rescue and recovery workers, and also worked with members of our family who live on the island to form and promote the PR Recovery NOW Fund through the Puerto Rico Community Foundation. This fund is specifically dedicated to supporting the recovery work of established Puerto Rico based non-profits serving some of of the most economically disadvantaged communities on the island - in the Central Mountains Region and Western Puerto Rico.

Health warning: continued use of Purple Lizard maps may result in an inability to stay indoors and a sudden criticism of traffic and the desire to escape to a beautiful tropical town on the tip of Puerto Rico. Your skin may become covered with sand. Mild confusion will make it difficult to relate time and distance, which may alter your definition of weather. There is a potential for all of these side effects to occur simultaneously and without warning. That's why we are warning you now.

All Purple Lizard maps are available flat (rolled up, unfolded) suitable for framing in a corporate lobby or just nailing to a cabin wall. The map cost is the same ($12) but shipping varies. E-mail info@purplelizard.com for specifics.
