Rincon is famous for its picturesque sunsets and miles of beaches, and is a haven for surfers of all ages and skill levels. The relaxed coastal town hosts an array of annual festivals and events, and although a small and intimate town by nature, Rincon boasts a medley of divergent atmospheres and venues, from the charm of secluded beaches to the active triathlon and surfing communities.
