Sandy beaches and natural attractions

With a diverse selection of experiences and adventures at Dorado Beach Resort, you'll return from your Puerto Rican, Caribbean vacation with a lifetime of stories and count the days until you can return again.

Breathtaking natural attractions - from a sun-splashed beach and an ancient old-growth forest to a sunken coral garden - make every moment an opportunity for new and exciting adventures.  Sneak off to an open-air spa perched among the treetops.  Join a pick-up game on the basketball court or play some sand volleyball.  Hike the historic 11-mile Rockefeller Trail or just drop your towel down on the beach and do absolutely nothing at all.

At Dorado Beach Resort, the choice is entirely yours.
