This time you want to absorb the Puerto Rican culture from within and become a local during your stay. Which better way than choosing an estate in the countryside, a beach villa in Culebra, or a studio apartment in Condado, a nightlife hot spot in San Juan?

Meet Joyce and Frankie

Early in 2017, Joyce Barrera (J) and Frankie Casalduc (F) met. She asked him to help her do a makeover of her Old San Juan house. Once they met, they became friends instantly. Their creative minds sparked the development and genesis of JFKeys Vacations.

When we think of JFKeys, we see a window to new memories and adventures. As JFKeys owners we want to be the keys to your new memories. Frankie’s eyes radiate excitement and thrill about these new beginnings. With more than 20 years in the decorating, remodeling and lighting industry, he wants to put his talent to Puerto Rico’s service. “We want to support local economy and help local talent” , he says. Frankie brings to the equation the artistic, creative, and sales experience, while Joyce possesses the tourism administration expertise. For almost five years Joyce managed three hotels in the San Juan area. She knows exactly what visitors are looking for.

We understand tourism plays a big part in the recuperation of Puerto Rico. We want tourists to come to our island, stay in our properties and guarantee them an unforgettable vacation.  All around the world people are looking for options.  They don’t want to pay the extra charges at the hotel; they want to be able to cook, and they want more living space. To meet those expectations, we are going to help property owners make their houses and apartments look their best for our new visitors. “We know that owners want guests who take good care of their properties and who value the effort and labor they have put on them. We know our visitors will cherish it” , Joyce explains.

Tres Casitas, in Las Quebradas, Cabo Rojo , is one of those properties you will fall in love. When you think of Cabo Rojo you probably recall its beautiful beaches such as Combate, and Buyé. Tres Casitas is just a minute drive away from La Parguera , in Lajas , in the southwest corner of the island. If you looking for a beach clear blue water with soft, light sand, then you have tu visit Playa Buyé . If sun tanning is not your thing and you are more into ecotourism , kayaking and snorkeling go to this trip to Parguera to learn more about these activities you can enjoy. Cabo Rojo is more than beaches, it also has a rural marvelous area. Tres Casitas owners will make you feel like family. Take time to relax and breath, and remember if you have something to work on, you have free WIFI access.

Why visit Puerto Rico? | The Island of Enchantment?

  • In Puerto Rico, Spanish and English are the official languages; most Puerto Ricans speak English
  • Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth and the U.S. dollar is the official currency; U.S. citizens don’t need a passport or a currency converter!
  • El Yunque is the only subtropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest Service , a place so indescribable that it must be seen, heard and felt. It’s one of our must-visit destinations.
  • More than 70% of the rum sold in the U.S. comes from Puerto Rico; sample our favorite local brands and enjoy a tour of our rum distilleries.
  • Puerto Rico houses the world's largest single-dish radio telescope, spanning almost 20 acres. It’s the only radio telescope that can accurately predict when and where an asteroid might collide with Earth, and was responsible for the first asteroid images in history.
  • Toro Verde features one of the longest Zip Lines on Earth: La Bestia. It uses a specially designed harness to soar through the air across 4,745 feet of terrain. Now it features El Monstruo the longest zipline in the universe, yes we said universe, with a 2.5km cable where you will reach a scary speed of up to 93.20 miles per hour.
  • Bioluminescence exists around the world, but there are only a few biobays on our planet. Puerto Rico has three of them, a kayak or boat-ride away from our shores, they must be seen to be appreciated.

Puerto Rican Food: A Must

There is a very powerful force that brings tourists back to Puerto Rico: its food.
The crispiness of the tostón or arañita, the sweetness and kick of the Piña Colada , the richness of the flan (custard), the multiple plantain dishes both salty and sweet: amarillos, platanutres, and mofongo in all its forms, such as the trifongo, a mixture of green and yellow plantain with yucca.
If you wish to escape from the cold temperatures of the North, Christmas season is the best time to drive to Guavate, in Cayey, and enjoy the best lechón (roasted pig) in the world, pasteles (plantain kind of tamal), rice and beans, and morcillas (blood sausage). The best way to end the Christmas Feast is with a shot of Coquito , the Puertorican version of eggnog, consisting of coconut cream, rum, coconut milk, cinnamon and eggs. Keep in mind that the longest Christmas in the world are Puerto Rico’s. You will begin enjoying the delicious festivity plates since November, just after Thanksgiving, ending in January, after las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián , internationally well known.
Puerto Rico has a great reputation for its native food as well as its enormous variety of restaurants. You will also find a wide array of American, Mexican, Argentinian, Caribbean, Peruvian, Italian, Brazilian restaurants.
And remember, Puertorricans are the friendliest people in the world.
