On the Puerto Rico's west coast, Mayaguez offers a more laid-back pace than San Juan, with decent beaches and several low-key tourist attractions.
The resort is located on the western coast of the country, about a mile from the beach, and a 10- to 15-minute drive to various restaurants and attractions. Mayaguez is home to the University of Puerto Rico, which greatly contributes to the surrounding's culture and environment.
The area gets some of the craziest weather on the island -- tornadoes, floods, and even hail can occur during the summer months. Two highways link the city with the rest of the island, and you'll probably need a rental car if you're staying in the area, especially because the only form of public transportation is a single trolley service.
