Rincon Puerto Rico Steps Beach

Rincon Puerto Rico Steps Beach is one of my favorite beaches.  It's home to The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, created in 2004 to protect the fragile coral and sea life in this area.  The snorkeling is wonderful.  Plenty of reefs to explore.   Bring your snorkel gear and sun screen as you can spend hours here.  I've seen all types of fish you see in Caribbean documentaries. 
It's also home to Tres Palmas, where waves of 30 ft have put surfers to the test.  A couple of years back, there were hundreds of folks lined along Pr 413 watching waves,  with only a handful of surfers brave (crazy) enough to try those waves.
