About the Bed & Breakfast I About the Owner


Welcome to our Puerto Rican escape!

Here in Playa Hucares, Naguabo you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind for the tranquility of rural Puerto Rico. This quaint fishing village in Eastern Puerto Rico offers a festive malecon (boardwalk) of restaurants and bars featuring freshly caught seafood and refreshing Pina Coladas.


About the Bed & Breakfast

Our bed and breakfast, Casa Libre Puerto Rico, is situated one block from the water, where you can either walk down to the fishing docks or head over to the waterfront boardwalk to sample the "catch of the day." Or you can step right outside your bedroom door and take a dip in our pool, which overlooks the bay.

Casa Libre is a great place to relax in the shade under our umbrellas by the pool. You can catch up on your leisure reading, share a cold a beer or sip an exotic cocktail.

The new deck and bar is completed!! Enjoy breakfast on the deck by the pool and in the afternoon, lay out in the sun and enjoy a nice cold drink!

For the buget traveler, we also have a hostel just 5 houses up the street. We have a private room for 2 with a queen bed and a dorm room with 3 bunk beds (sleeps 6). Includes shared kitchen and bathroom as well as living areas. Oceanfront view of the bay of Naguabo.

About the Owners

Proprieter, Josue D. Rivera, is a Puerto Rican native who lived in California but returned to Puerto Rico to share his homeland with all of you. He is happy to arrange day tours to the tropical rainforests, sandy beaches, historical landmarks, or city night life. Josue speaks both English and Spanish.

Patti Swanson is a third generation California girl who first came to Puerto Rico in 1993 and returned in 2004 when her kids were grown.  Now, instead of waking up to the rush of the commute, she wakes to the sound of the roosters and the fishermen getting their boats ready for the day's catch.  After a morning swim in the pool, a cup of delicious Puerto Rican coffee and fresh guava or pineapple pastry and she is ready to cook her guests a fabulous breakfast -- just the thing to start them on their way to discovering Puerto Rico, La Isla del Encanto!

Dawn Betz, Josue's fiance, from Livermore, CA. has joined the Casa Libre family. She is the resident artist who has paintings some of the rooms and also does fused glass art. Soon there will be murals depicting Puerto Rican heritage and Taino art throughout the house.

"Playa Húcares
is the place to be.
Casual outdoor
eateries and
funky shops vie
with the water
for your attention.
Two Victorian-style
houses anchor one end
of the waterfront
promenade; a dock
with excursion boats
anchors the other."
