Come as guest, leave as friends
The Lazy Parrot Inn was founded in 1989 by Steve and Francia Lantz. Their love of surfing brought them to Rincón.
The hotel started as a three-bedroom guest house where they lived in one of the rooms and rented out the other two. Their motto was always: “Come as Guests, Leave as Friends” and it was a cozy place where surfers from all around the world would stay, go surfing during the day, and in the evenings enjoy Lantz’s barbeque gatherings.
The original building featured a small living room/ common area for guests to watch tv and get to know other guests. Little by little, Steve and Francia expanded the guest house to 5 rooms and later to 7 rooms. In time, they changed the guest room concept and turned the property into a small hotel, while keeping with their motto of ” Come as Guests, Leave as Friends”.
Between 2005 and 2007, the pool area and terrace rooms were added to the little hotel, until their oldest daughter moved to college, and they decided to move to Ohio and put the property for sale.
Six years later the Lazy Parrot was purchased by Srinivas Katragadda and Puerto Rican-born and raised Nanette Burgos. The couple were guests at the hotel many years back and were searching for a property on the island where they could fulfill their dream to have a sustainable finca.
Today they remain as owners and that little guest house has transformed itself into an eco-friendly fully sustainable boutique hotel that welcomes you as both a guest and a friend, and invites you to nest in the greenery that this beautiful little piece of good earth offers.
When you stay with us, visit our gift shop in the lower lobby, near the pool where you'll find unique items and art created by local artisans, as well as simple memories that showcase our beautiful island, and local pastries!
Play To Win!
Not in the mood to go out? Don't worry, our game room was designed for you to stay relaxed and have fun at the same time! We also offer a small but entertaining book reading area at our lower lobby right in front of its entrance!
Lazy Parrot Inn is located on route 413, known as the "Route to Happiness" by surfers, minutes away from Rincón's dazzling beaches, and shops. Rincón is also known as the Surfing Capital of Puerto Rico and Town with Beautiful Sunsets.
Co-existing with the land
Ecotourism + Conservation
Since 2017 Lazy Parrot Inn's goal has been to honor our ancestral land.
We have incorporated green living systems and practices into all areas of our business, mindfully co-existing with the nature that surrounds us, which includes: a well water system, a saline water pool and jacuzzi, recycling and composting, eco-friendly detergents, onsite organic farm, and solar panels.
As part of our goal and our continuous work, we also offer Corazón del Monte (Heart of the Mountain), our in-house farm where we harvest all of our ingredients; mainly to be used at our restaurant El Nido and soon to be incorporated on future projects!
