The economy is not doing so good. It’s time to ditch the traditional hotel and stay local. What’s that? Well, staying local is literally staying at a local’s place. From renting out a spare bedroom in a home, to entire vacation houses, furnished and waiting for someone to come and stay there. Imagine topping that with a customized personal tour of an unknown place by a local.
Complicated you say? Well, not anymore. JoinaJoin.com is a brand new travel website featuring both places to stay and things to do. Through this platform locals post their properties or private tours for those adventurous travelers seeking a different experience. A beachfront villa in Vieques, a Golf Villa in Dorado, a surf shack in Rincón, a house in La Parguera… just about anything.
Launched in 2013, the site’s listings are growing fast and I suspect will continue to grow as users continue to leave reviews. I personally found an adorable set of houses in Isabela with a spectacular view!
If you’re looking to visit Puerto Rico and have a truly local experience, this website definitely has something to offer.
