Aguadilla is a coastal municipality right at the northwest point of the island attracting tourists in the winter for its surfing beaches, scenic sunsets and nearby points of interest on the west coast. Many locals and surfers in the know will argue that Aguadilla rivals the more known surfing town of Rincon Aguadilla hosted the ISA World Championship in 1988. Aguadilla’s gorgeous coastline can be easily missed by the distractions of congested Route 2. In order to find the enchantment of Aguadilla, one must wander through the narrow residential roads leading up to the coastline where beach lovers will find miles of beaches, with some secret spots worth being featured on a Pirates of the Caribbean scene. Aguadilla is home to the Rafael Hernandez Airport, an international airport welcoming visitors seeking for a beach vacation on the laid back towns of Porta del Sol (west coast), offering cheap daily flights to and from Orlando and NYC area airports. The airport is on the site of what used to be the U.S. military’s Ramey Air Force Base. Aguadilla is the most commercialized municipality on the northwest region with many local businesses, factories, a shopping mall, and one of the only two ice skating rings in the Caribbean. Aguadilla feels like many of the traditional towns across the island, at the center is a small square where government offices and many local shops are located.
