Valentine's Day in Rio Grande

Valentine's Day in Rio Grande


Does anyone know if there's a nice restaurant nearby that would take a reservation for VDay? Any suggestions would be great. Also how is the drive from SJA to Rio Grande? Scenic?

There is a specatcular, scenic road from San Juan to Loiza along Piñones beach. Then you should take Route 3 to Rio Grande. In Rio Grande there is a very scenic restaurant called Ritchies. The views are picture perfect and includes ocean views. The food is not outstanding but the views make up for the food. Ritchies is about 1 minute drive just after you pass the Wydnham Rio Mar Resort entrance.

Thank you for your reply! We'll have to look into Ritchie's. The view sounds awesome.

Ritchies is great, but its greatest attraction is the view which is one of the best in PR. If you come after sunset, it is not worth the few extra bucks he puts on the (ok +/-) food.

If going to Rio Grande, explore the Kiosks a short drive east which is a row of about 30 small eating and drinking places which range from some of the highest rated in PR, (See Ay Bonito on TA) to some fun, very local places. I also recommend Cherice Hut, Tapas 13, El Jeffe Burger, La Parilla, and Bohio de Luquillo. The Food Place is a new addition which is a NY style deli restaurant if you are craving a little home. Good breakfast spot.
