Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa @ Guánica

A Slice of Paradise in Land & Underwater

Let us take you on a captivating journey to Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa, a tropical haven in Guánica known as “The Friendship Town”.  Situated on the picturesque southwest coast of Puerto Rico and united by Scuba Dogs’ mission as “Diver’s Best Friend,” our native “Guaitiao” experience promises to captivate your senses and create memories that last a lifetime.

Upon entering this enchanted refuge, you are greeted by a sight that defies the imagination: a vast expanse of 20 acres adorned with lush tropical gardens and a pristine half-mile private beach. It’s the quintessential tropical hideaway that calls to your soul. The rooms at Copamarina, far from being mere accommodations, are meticulously designed dwellings that offer private balconies or terraces, high-speed internet access, and luxurious bedding.


A trip here is not just about accommodation; it’s an exploration of culinary excellence. Copamarina features two notable dining establishments, Las Palmas and Alexandra Restaurants.

Las Palmas Restaurant, bathed in the warm embrace of the outdoors, offers a relaxed environment, recent decorative rejuvenation, and stunning views of the Caribbean. The menu is a symphony of innovative seafood creations, succulent meat cuts, and hearty sandwiches, all conjured from the freshest local ingredients.

On the other hand, Alexandra Restaurant offers a high-end dining experience, serving contemporary Puerto Rican flavor masterfully crafted by an internationally acclaimed chef.

From basking in the sun on the pristine white sand beach, to taking a soothing dip in one of the two outdoor pools, the options are as varied as your desires. For the adventurous souls among us, the Resort’s privileged location facing the Caribbean Sea makes it a true paradise for water enthusiasts, offering the best for water sports such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and more. For those who crave opulence, Copamarina also presents two exclusive villas complete with a kitchen and a wrap-around balcony.

Location, location, location. The exclusive Copamarina Resort is situated within the sacred grounds of the UNESCO Guánica Dry Forest Reserve; declared and protected by the United Nations since 1981 as a highly valued ecosystem for humanity. Just a few steps from the Resort, you’ll find Guánica’s only public beach “Caña Gorda” with a charming beach and facilities that include parking, showers, toilets, and picnic areas ideal for spending quality time with friends and family. Then, a short drive away, a series of remote beaches await your visit at your leisure, including Punta Ballena, Playa Santa, and La Jungla, which combine white sand with unique mangrove ecosystems where locals catch waves, explore or simply relax to sunbathe.
