This Shipping Container Airbnb in Puerto Rico Is Perfect for a Digital Detox

Puerto Rico Epic Stays
by Jessica Devnani Jun 29, 2023

If you’re visiting Puerto Rico, don’t make the mistake of limiting yourself to just San Juan. Venture outside the capital city and you’ll find secluded beaches, picturesque countryside, colorful towns, and a chance to really immerse yourself in local life while staying at one of the coolest Airbnbs in Puerto Rico.

We hope you love the Cabo Negro 101 Airbnb! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.

Cabo Negro 101 is a great spot to stay while you explore other parts of the island. This unique abode is a tiny home built out of a shipping container, but don’t let that fool you. Step inside and you’ll find a modern, cozy, and inviting space. The well-equipped kitchen includes retro-themed appliances which add a nice touch. Down on the other end of the container is the bedroom, which opens up into your own private pool. There is a lovely deck and a great view of the sunset. After dark, you can sit by the fire pit to roast marshmallows under the stars. The property is very private and you’ll have the entire place to yourself.

The best way to get to Cabo Negro 101 is by car as there is no public transportation in the area. You can pick up your rental car when you land in San Juan and from there, the drive is about three hours. Despite its secluded location, there are lots to see and do nearby. The Airbnb is just a short 5-minute drive away from Boquerón, a quaint town on the southwestern coast.

Here you’ll find a few bars, restaurants, cute shops, and a calm beach. There are also some other gorgeous beaches nearby including Playa Sucia and Playa El Combate. An absolute must-do is the 25-minute drive down to Los Morrillos Lighthouse in Cabo Rojo. Along the way, you’ll pass otherworldly landscapes of salt flats and pink salt lakes.

Once you arrive at the lighthouse you can hike one of the many trails for some amazing views overlooking the cliffs, or trek down to Playa Sucia, a stunning white sand beach. And just 20 minutes away is La Parguera, where you can visit beautiful blue water cays and one of Puerto Rico’s three bioluminescent bays. This is the only bioluminescent bay on the island that you are allowed to swim in, so be sure to take full advantage of the opportunity.
