Wyndham Rio Mar suggestions please...

I will be coming from Michigan for a golf tournament in a group of 8 people this week. We are staying at the Wyndham Rio Mar and i am looking for restaurants to eat at...maybe 1 night at a nice restaurant (steak/seafood), and the other 4 nights at a laid back hamburger/pasta/salad type place preferably on the water??

We will also have 1 day off starting around noon and we were thinking about going to the Waterfalls. Directions?? What do we have to do when we get there? Best to take a tour or just wing it?

Lastly, we will have 2 rental car for our stay...how far is the Wyndham from the SJU airport and how long will it take to get to and from. We arrive around midnight, but we fly out around 4pm, both on weekdays...

Any other info would be great..any particular sailing tour worth it? Anything else to do or see while we are there?

thank you!!

Rio Mar is 30 - 45 minutes from SJU depending on time of day. The former at midnight, the latter mid day.

Restaurants - go to the Kioskos about 10 minutes east on Rt 3. A row of about 40 small eating and drinking places next door to Luquillo Beach. They range from some of the best rated places to eat in PR to some very local establishments. Ay Bonito is my favorite and rated among the top five in PR on TA. Richie's is up the hill from Rio Mar, turn right and go about 1/4 mile. Spectacular view during day. Good food, a little pricey.

Waterfalls are in El Yunque Rain Forest. Very close by, Turn right out of the Rio Mar gate and go straight across Rt 3 at the light at the bottom of the hill. Follow road around to the right and look for El Yunque signs. Go to the visitor center for directions to falls.
