Wake up drinking a cup of Puerto Rican coffee, one of the best-tasting in the world, while listening to the sounds of "el pueblo" (the town) on our larger balcony. Relax in our new ROOF TOP with Jacuzi and enjoy the space with family and frends. We have power generator and water tank. Regardless of your reasons for visiting Puerto Rico, we know that you will fall in love with our hidden gem. Please contact us if you have any additional questions and we will be happy to chat!

Where you’ll be

Vega Baja, Puerto Rico

Vega Baja is a coastal town just a 40-minute drive from the airport! Melao Lodge is located in the Vega Baja "pueblo" (town, historic district), just a short drive away (10-15 minutes) from one of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico (Playa Puerto Nuevo), natural reserves, and incredible culinary experiences. For surfers and wave lovers, we are also a short drive away from Los Tubos Beach, and snorkeling fans should visit Mar Chiquita Beach. For the nature lovers and adventure seekers, we have the local Charco Azul, a beautiful system of caves, ponds, and rivers, and Roca Norte for rock climbing. El Yunque National Forest is worth the drive and a must-see! A drive up the mountains can take you to the incredible Toro Verde Adventure Park (ziplining, rope courses) in Orocovis, or to the Cavernas de Camuy, one of the world's largest cave networks. If you're looking for an active nightlife, we are just 30-40 minutes away from the downtown and capital city of San Juan!

MELAO can be translated as "cane syrup", and our name honors the rich history of Vega Baja's old sugarcane industry. As a matter of fact, the first sugarcane refinery in Puerto Rico, Central San Vicente, was established in this town in 1873! You will find little tributes to this "melao" and other famous individuals from Vega Baja throughout the Lodge.
