Description

The Space

Welcome to Finca Calizo ! My home is about 3500 sq. ft. plus a beautiful porch/deck that is 15 ft, wide by 75 ft. long including a bathroom. From the deck and on clear days you can see the Islands of Culebra, Vieques, Palomino and other smaller islands. I have two Private bedrooms setup for guests and they each have a private bathroom, also they each have their own Air Conditioner, this listing is for the Bedroom with a Full size bed. The house sits on two acres of land with gated access and lots of parking inside the gate, the back acre is still in natural jungle. I am located in a small rural community called Mundo Tropical; a community of about 15 homes on about 80 acres. There is a small farm (three acres) below me and a small ranch (two acres) above me. There are many trees on this property; Mango, Banana, Pana, Coconut and two kinds of fruit that I have not yet identified. You are welcome to try any/all of them if they are in season. I am on the edge of the El Yunque National Rain Forest with miles of natural water flow streams and jungle to explore. Ed's (16) recommendations for things that you should plan to do while in PR: Visit Old San Juan and the Old El Morro Fort. Sample the Local Cuisine (there is no shortage of good Restaurants near by). Visit Bio Bay (one in Fajardo (near by) & one in Vieques) Visit as many different Beaches as you can (there are many near by). Take the rain forest tour (near by). Go to the top of El Yunque Mountain (near by). Take a Snorkel Tour (near by). Visit the smaller Islands of Vieques and Culebra (Ferry and Air Port near by). Take a Catamaran Tour (near by). Take a Surfing tour (near by). Rent a Kayak (near by). Experience the Fly board (near by). Visit the Caves ( four different places on the Island) Visit the Arecibo Observatory See the PR lighthouse. But most of all, relax and enjoy your leisure time on my beautiful deck with views of part of Fajardo (below), the Ocean, Culebra, Vieques and smaller Islands.

Guest Access

My guests have total access to my property; use of Bedroom and Bath, Living Area, Parking and Porch/Deck, Access/use the Kitchen (Sink, Refrigerator, Range, Oven, Toaster Oven, Microwave Oven, Dishes, Glassware, Flatware, Coffee maker) Tables and Chairs: and Laundry facilities (Washer and Dryer and/or Cloths line). And, access to the entire property. If you are a hiker there is a gate in the back of the property which accesses the natural jungle, and the natural water flow systems, which have formed many natural pools/ponds along their journey down the hill side and into the sea.

Interaction with Guests

I am retired, Single, a US Navy Veteran and am available about 90% of the time. I give my guests space but am available when needed. If you prefer I am not opposed to socialize with my guests when available.

The Neighborhood

Fajardo is centrally located on the Northern East coast. Mundo Tropical is a small private community of approximately 15 homes spread out on a total of approximately 80 acres on the side of a foothill for El Yunque, most homes are gated and all pretty much keep to themselves. Downtown area is about 5 miles away. There are several shopping markets and restaurants near by and we are only a few minutes drive from several large hotels which have entertainment, shopping and restaurants. Fajardo also has the largest Marina in the Caribbean. Down Town Fajardo is approx. 5 miles away; the Ferry boats to Vieques and Culebra are approx. 6 miles away and the Ceiba Airport is about 10 miles away.

Getting Around

There is no public transportation system so, it is advisable to have a rental car.

Other Things to Note

It is advisable to have a rental car as a cab from the airport is approximately a hundred dollars each way, I am told that Uber is sixty. But more importantly it is by far the best/easiest way to go all the places that you will want to go. However it might be possible to talk me into taking you somewhere for a nominal fee. My property is gated so coming and going should be coordinated. Cave Info: The Window Cave (Cueva Ventana) is located in the street #10 in Arecibo. If you come from highway #22, from San Juan to Arecibo take exit 75B, towards Utuado. Then stop at the first Texaco garage, located at your left. Park and walk around 10 to 15 minutes throughout a trail located at the garage left side. The trail will allow you to enjoy the flora and fauna of the limestone zone of the north of Puerto Rico. This zone covers around 90 miles from Rio Grande to Aguadilla. At the end of the trail you will walk down a ladder that leads to the main cave cavity, of some 20 feet. You will be delighted with the stalactites, stalagmites, bats and the bugs from this ecosystem. The end of the cave, there is an impressive opening in the mountain, allowing an unforgettable vista towards the mountains of the area and “Rio Grande of Arecibo”; name of the cave comes from here. When returning, after the stairs, you can walk down a slope to find another cave a little smaller, but very impressive. Here there is another opening in the mountain where hundreds of wanderers use the little holes in the cave to nest. If you wish to visit the cave, we recommend communicating with the Municipality of Arecibo. Since early 2013, the admission fee is $10 per person, it's open seven days a week from 10 am to 5 pm. “La Cueva del Indio” or The Indian Cave in Arecibo is located on Highway 681 Km 8.0. You can park in the side of the road, but for safety we recommend you pay $2 and park in the business The Coayuco. There is also a nearby gas station that has parking. The cave entrance is labeled. At first the trail is between shrubs and after several minutes, the ground is limestone. You must be very careful because these rocks are sharp and are slippery when wet. The cave entrance is a hole in the limestone with a ladder about 25 feet down into it. Be cautious and do not go alone just in case something happens. The cave is divided in several cavities. On some of them you will see petroglyphs and on others you will see how the waves move the level of the water as they come and go. These Indian petroglyphs date back to ancient times, but the exact date could not be determined accurately.After appreciating the charms of the cave you can enjoy its surroundings, where you will see how the ocean waves crashing against the limestone rocks that eventually formed natural sculptures. The admission has a fee of $5, it is operated and maintain by the Department of Natural Resources of Puerto Rico. The Park of the Caverns of the Camuy River is one of the most spectacular places of Puerto Rico. It is the third greatest cave system in the world and at the moment 18 entrances have been discovered. After enjoying a video, a trolley will take you to the entrance of the main cave, “Cueva Clara,” which is more than 170 feet high and has immense stalagmites and stalactites. During the tour the guides of the park will inform you about the ecosystem of the caverns in a jovial and friendly way. At the end of the tour, the trolley stops at the “Sumidero Tres Pueblos,” a natural drain, where at the end you will see the Camuy River. In addition to its natural attractions, the park has picnic tables, a souvenir store and a cafeteria. It opens from Wednesday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., and the entrance fee is $18 per adult, $13 per child and seniors $9. The park is closed on: New Year, Three Kings Day, Good Friday, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Cueva del Viento or Wind Cave is at present the biggest cave of the Guajataca Forest. In order to get there you must request a map at the Ranger Station located at the entrance of the forest. It will take you like one hour to arrive at the cave. It is a very impressive cave where you will see stalagmites, stalactites, columns and small animals. It is extremely long and if you wish to explore it you must bring a flashlight. Remember to be careful.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
