We discovered them on our last trip to our beachfront vacation home (Villas de Costa Mar) in Dorado, Puerto Rico. On day two of our arrival we walked across the street to the beach as we often due; Nelly my son and I. We walked east towards the Embassy Suites to the coral ridge to see the fish and other creatures that get caught in the ridges and wholes when the waves come in and out over the coral rocks. You should always wear beach shoes or some foot ware as the coral rock is very Sharpe and slippery along the ridge were wet green algee forms.We then went west past the fishing village, boat launch docks, Villas de Costa Mar and food/activities kiosks. We noticed a few things on our walk; the sand in Dorado beach is very course and it does get very crowded on weekends when the locals take to the beach. As we walked west along the beach the sand’s texture turned very fine and lighter color. The crowds were reduced and there was plenty of beach space to our delight. We found a lot of great places to sit and relax under palm trees but you better get there early; a plus to those staying close to the beach!
As we walked west we could see the sail boats, very colorful surfing kites, paddle boats and other water activities. We walked into the goodwinds front desk and they were very helpful in answering all our questions as to what water activities they provided and gear available for rent and sell.goodwinds, is a family owned watersports management company operating since 2001.
