The Lovely Sound of the El Coqui | Rincon Wedding Planner

Tiny with Big sound
Tiny with Big sound

No, that lovely sound you hear in the evening during your Rincon Wedding is not a bird but a frog! It is the El Coqui frog, mostly heard after a little rain during your Rincon Vacation.  If you'd like to know more please ask your Rincon Wedding Planner.

 

From Welcome to PR: "The coquí has been a cultural symbol of Puerto Rican history for centuries. Since the time of our native Taino inhabitants and its presence shown on many stone engravings to the present and all the places and objects you will find this symbol represented. It has become a national symbol and an icon for anything Puerto Rican. When Puerto Ricans want to express their nationality, they say: "Soy de aquí como el coquí" (I'm as Puerto Rican as a coquí)"

Puerto Rican Street Food | Rincon Wedding Planner

Pinchos y Tostones
Pinchos y Tostones

During your Rincon Wedding stay you'll see street vendors and fruit stands all around Rincon. We think trying these stands is a fun way to experience Puerto Rico so ask your Rincon Wedding Planner to recommend the ones they like best!!!   These stands make the perfect snack stop!

 

Most street vendor signs self explanatory but there are a few signs that might have you wondering what they are

  • Pinchos - kabobs commonly made with pork, fish or chicken and a special marinade
  • Tostones - twice-fried green plantains
  • Empanadas - "fried meat pie" ; folded dough or bread around a stuffing of a vegetables, chicken, pork or fish
  • Pastelillo - similar to an empanada, except the doug is thin and flaky

Buen Provecho!!!

Cape Air Caribbean Airports Include Rincon Area | Rincon Caribbean Wedding Planning

Cape Air Also Flys From The East Coast
Cape Air Also Flys From The East Coast

Cape Air is an option for getting to your Rincon Puerto Rico Caribbean Destination Wedding

 

San Juan Puerto Rico / SJU Airport is a major hub so once you get there you can take a Cape Air flight to Mayaquez Puerto Rico.  Rincon is normally a nice 40 minute drive from Mayaquez.    

 

So, if you don't fly into Aguadilla BQN Airport consider Cape Air.   We think it bets driving the 2.5hrs from San Juan and it definately gives you a beautiful aerial view of Puerto Rico!

 

You can also do some Caribbean Island Hoping for your Rincon Wedding Planning Activities

Old & New Environmental League of Rincon Puerto Rico | Caribbean Weddings

One of Rincon's Beautiful Beaches Being Protected
One of Rincon's Beautiful Beaches Being Protected

In October of 2012, a new group - based off a historic Rincon group - grew from one community gathering to show support for and to protect Rincon's prestine beaches. These are the same beaches you and your Rincon Wedding Party & Guests will enjoy while in Puerto Rico. If you'd like to participate during Rincon vacation please do, they'd love to have you!

 

The Liga Ecológica, was once a very active group of environmentalists who focused on keeping Rincon and Puerto Rico clean and keeping intrusive development projects away from protected wildlife habitats. The new aim, as of October 2012, is to revive this League and work towards a new League that will serve to keep the community aware of such projects and do our part to protect the beach and all of the wildlife in this area and it's surroundings.

 

Please give them your support, and stay in touch with the development of this organization by visiting them on Facebook - Nueva Liga Ecológica
