Calling Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico home means taking your place in the cast of visionaries who’ve fallen in love with this seaside hideaway.
Among the first inhabitants were the indigenous Taínos, whose striking artifacts inspired the designers of today’s Dorado Beach. In 1905, the Livingston family cultivated a 1,400-acre plantation here, complete with an airstrip, which hosted legendary pilot Amelia Earhart. In 1937, Amelia wrote in her journal about the “surge of the sea” that lulled her to sleep at Su Casa, Clara Livingston’s splendid hacienda that still graces a quiet cove.
Then came conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller, whose pioneering quest to create the first luxury Caribbean eco-resort led him to the Livingston plantation. Rockefeller preserved its lushness and enhanced its allure with the finest services and amenities imaginable, opening Dorado Beach in 1958 to crowds of celebrities, dignitaries and discerning families in search of escape.
Amelia Earhart praised it, Laurance Rockefeller preserved it, and now you can own a part of it.
