Welcome to Fajardo

As Puerto Rico’s water sports epicenter, snorkeling, diving, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking adventures are among the top things to do in Fajardo. Sailing and yachting excursions set off from here for the islands of Icacos, Lobos, and Palomino to spot sea turtles, flying fish, rays, and other marine life or round the lighthouse to moor opposite the sandy stretch of Seven Seas Beach.

Laguna Grande

During the day, Laguna Grande in Fajardo looks like other bays along the tropical Puerto Rican coastline. But come nightfall the bioluminescent lagoon glows fluorescent, thanks to pyrodinium bahamense, microscopic plankton that thrive in its shallow Caribbean waters and glow when disturbed.More

All about Fajardo

When to visit

Summer is the most popular time to visit Fajardo, but it’s also the hottest. The most important holiday of the year is July 25th, when the town honors its patron saint with the Fiesta de Santiago Apóstol. Spring is less crowded and also more comfortable—milder but still warm enough that you can comfortably kayak, canyon, and snorkel. Music festivals, cycling races, a kite festival, a regatta, and many other local events are held in April and May.

Getting around

Fajardo does not have reliable public transportation and is easiest to explore by renting a car or booking local taxis. Many hotels also offer affordable shuttles to the town’s top sights, including El Yunque National Park, Bio Bay, and the most popular beaches. Taxis and hotel shuttles also service the San Juan Airport and the Port of Fajardo, where you can catch a ferry or boat to nearby islands.

Traveler tips

Fajardo is home to two mesones gastronómicos, traditional restaurants that have been officially recognized for their authentic criollo (Puerto Rican creole) dishes. If you want to sample classic Puerto Rican staples like rice and beans, mofongo, tostones, and other specialties, make a beeline to upscale Pasión por el Fogón, located by Playa Sardinera, or to the more casual Star Fish Restaurant, which is on the grounds of the Fajardo Inn Resort.
