Explore Puerto Rico’s 9 Lodges Offering a Blend of Comfort, Sustainability, and Natural Beauty

You’ll find Puerto Rico rich in culture, traditions, and beauty. Vastly spreading over the Caribbean Sea, this island is endowed with magnificent mountains, numerous mystical waterfalls, several bioluminescent bays, and an extensive rainforest that makes Puerto Rico one of the most beautiful places on earth.

The island has only recently initiated a greener, eco-friendly living system, which is why the number of eco-friendly lodges is still a little low. But, if you’re looking for the best eco-lodges in Puerto Rico, here’s where to find them.

Hix Island House

The Hix Island House was one of the first Puerto Rican eco-lodges, and this is why it takes the top of the list. Rustically built to match its beautiful environment, the Hix Island House comes across as the perfect combination of simplicity and sophistication. Located in Spanish Virgin Island, Vieques, the Hix Island House was designed to be sustainable; its building caters to the region’s climate, topography, and weather, so the use of power is kept to a minimum.

It only uses warm LED lights to reduce electricity, and any electricity used comes from renewable sources. They use photovoltaic systems, which you can see on the roof in the above picture.
