This is the list of my personal favorite restaurants, beaches and activities in Rincón. There are actually a lot more places than this, part of the Rincón experience is discovering them. A lot of restaurants close for the summer, during the low season and Tuesday is often the day off. In town there are two big supermarkets Econo and Edward's, they can be found on google maps. There are also fruit stands on 115 between the two supermarkets.
