“Location, Location, Location. Puerto Rico has always been about location, since the time of the Caribe Indians, to Columbus, the pirates of the Caribbean, the U.S. Navy and now Margaritaville. We are delighted to add our name to the list of adventurers who have called this island home. I have spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico in my comings and goings through the Caribbean over the years, and have personally discovered the hidden beauty, culture and charm of these islands and the local inhabitants, from Rincon to Culebra.”

The Resort*

Prepare to experience paradise wrapped in the Margaritaville lifestyle at Wyndham Rio Mar. This delightful tropical escape — tucked between verdant rainforest and golden sands — is located on the grounds of the stunning Wyndham Grand® Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa. Just 30 miles outside historic Old San Juan, this fabulous resort is your perfect hideaway filled with stimulating activities … and plenty of not-so-active pursuits.

Lushly landscaped in harmony with the island and neighboring El Yunque Rainforest, this Margaritaville Vacation Club® resort features 500 acres of perfect pleasures. When the music calls, head to your own tropical oasis — a glistening pool, hot tub and gently swaying hammock — to sip a salty Margarita or LandShark Lager. Once you’ve indulged in just about every delight here and at Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa — including luxury spa treatments, a round of golf, casino action, boutiques and 10 different restaurants, lounges and entertainment venues — celebrate doing absolutely nothing at all as you stake out a spot on the mile-long stretch of golden beach or enjoy the perfect boat drink at the swim-up bar.

Return to the haven of your tropical-themed suite, and put your feet up on your private balcony or patio. Choose from among studio, 1-bedroom and 3-bedroom ocean- or mountain-view accommodations, each one featuring a full or mini-kitchen and a bar area stocked with a Frozen Concoction Maker®. This is living your own version of paradise.
