    The property features exquisite panoramic views, looking to peak of El Yunque in one direction and the ocean in the other. Many beaches are within a 15 minute drive. Waterfalls are a short drive. The river, said to be one of the cleanest on earth, is a walk from the farm. The caves are among the best in the world. A horse farm is a 2 minute drive/10 minute walk. They offer lessons; have shows for dressage and jumping; and rehabilitate race horses. The phosphorescent bay is in near-by town, Fajardo. Also in Fajardo is a nature preserve. Near-by islands Culebra, Viequez, and Icacos (an uninhabited island) are all a short boat road away, and exquisite for snorkeling and the crystal clear waters. There is also a lively art community in P.R.
