Puerto Rico has water parks!
Some even overlook the sea, offering a beautiful view.
I grew up going to some of these water parks with my family.
In this article, I will share the three best water parks in Puerto Rico:
Las Cascadas Water Park in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, opened in 1985 as the biggest (and only) water park in the Caribbean.
The park closed in 2017 because of destruction from Hurricane Maria and then opened again in May of 2022.
Although it’s no longer the biggest, nor the only, it still holds up as the largest and most popular park in Puerto Rico. Las Cascadas is one of the largest water parks in the Caribbean.
The park has has something for everyone, with six different water rides, a lazy river, a white-water rapids ride, a wave pool, a water agility course, and a kiddie pool.
The park is open from 9:00 am-5:00 pm during the summer, typically 5-6 days per week, and they are closed from Fall to Spring.
It’s best to call ahead, though, as their opening times have been known to move around.
