Isabela is Puerto Rico’s second-biggest surfing destination and ranks next to Rincon, a world-class surf spot. It’s called “the garden on the northwest” (El Jardin del Noroeste) with its paradise-like surroundings dominating the northwest region bordered on the West by the sheltered coves of Jobos Beach and to the East, Guajataca’s abandoned tunnels and jagged coastline. Originally a European settlement built in 1725, it was later abandoned and renamed Isabela after the Spanish Queen when it was reestablished in 1819. Its 14 barrios, challenging surfs, rustic island scenery, and at least 4 fiestas a year gives its vibrant coastal town atmosphere. Make your beach holiday in Puerto Rico complete by booking one of the Airbnb vacation rentals in Isabela we’ve listed below.

1. House by the Sea (from USD 80)

The tiny, eye-catching cottage on a cliff has bright yellow exteriors and a small balcony furnished with loungers and a hammock. The modest space fits a sofa bed that could sleep two guests, a kitchenette, tiny dining table, TV, Wi-Fi, and a bathroom with hot water and free toiletries. It’s ventilated by a fan and with the natural sea breeze flowing through its windows. A wooden walkway goes around the back of the house and down the cliff to the nearby Villa Pesquera for food provisions. Villa Mar Afuera is one of three cottages in the Villa Marullo premises that can be rented separately or altogether accessible by car and minutes away from the town and the nearest beach.
