Rincon, Puerto Rico To Build Water Park

The Puerto Rican government is planning to build a water park and a theater in the northwest tourist town of Rincón, Puerto Rico.  At a cost of $4.85 million, the water park will be built near the Friendship Plaza and the theater, along with a boardwalk, will be part of an 8,000-square-foot recreational center that will be built at the site of the old Rincón Theater.

Rincon is a tourist destination and is well known for its surfing.  No date was given as to when these projects will begin.

Things To Do In Puerto Rico When It Rains

Puerto Rico is located in the Caribbean and therefore tropical, which means a chance for rain or showers on any given day.  Luckily in the tropics, the rain comes and goes very quickly, (unless it is during the hurricane season, July-November) and then the sun comes out again.  If you are visiting Puerto Rico and there is rain in the forecast, here are a few ideas for things to do in San Juan, Puerto Rico when is raining:

Puerto Rican Restaurant - Go to a Puerto Rican restaurant and try some typical dishes, like mofongo, alcapurrias, bacalaitos and arroz con gandules.

Puerto Rico Museum of Art - The Puerto Rico Museum of Art is located on De Diego Avenue near the Condado Area, and has a great collection of Puerto Rican art.

Plaza las Americas: Plaza las Americas or Plaza, as it is known in Puerto Rico, is the largest mall in the Caribbean.  Plaza also has restaurants and movie theaters.

Fine Arts Cafe Cinema: Fine Arts Cafe Cinema is the nicest movie theater in Puerto Rico with comfortable seats, and shows mostly foreign movies.  They sell wine and beer along with pop corn, soda, cold sandwiches, and sushi. 

Casinos: Try your luck at one of the resort casinos in the tourist areas of Isla Verde and Condado.   Casinos at the hotels are always open. 

These should keep you entertained on a rainy day in San Juan.  Even if there is rain in the forecast that does not mean that it will rain all day, so enjoy these ideas for a few hours and return to your scheduled events once the weather has cleared.  Enjoy your time in Puerto Rico.
