Situated in Boquerón Bay on Puerto Rico’s southwest coast, Esencia will cover 2,000 acres of pristine land. Approximately 75 minutes south of Rincón, this development promises to be a game-changer for the Caribbean, creating over 2,000 jobs and elevating the island’s status in the global tourism market.
