Ciudadela’s contemporary architecture blends with its historical buildings, the open plaza and beautiful gardens to create the ideal space.

Puerto Del Rey lies in a beautiful and naturally protected bay, where its massive breakwater has provided shelter from tropical storms and hurricanes for over 25 years.

1000 slips accommodate boats up to 180 LOA with 15 feet draught. Extensive storage and repair facilities accompany more than 400 drystack spaces on 50 acres of land.

Perfectly situated on the eastern tip of Puerto Rico, the marina is very close to the spectacular islands of Culebra and Vieques; beyond these lie the British and U.S. Virgin Islands. Puerto Del Rey is also an ideal place to stage longer voyages to the U.S., Bermuda, South America and the Panama Canal.

As a permanent home port, Puerto Del Rey provides the perfect haven. We’ll have you fully equipped and provisioned, then safely and swiftly seaborne. On your return, enjoy our restaurants, bars and shops.

We’re ready for the TRID rules!

At 5 p.m. EST June 17, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a statement that the effective date for the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rules would be pushed back to Oct. 1, 2015.

CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a prepared statement: “The CFPB will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Know Before You Owe rule until Oct. 1, 2015. We made this decision to correct an administrative error that we just discovered in meeting the requirements under federal law, which would have delayed the effective date of the rule by two weeks. We further believe that the additional time included in the proposed effective date would better accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers whose families will be busy with the transition to the new school year at that time.”

Rainier Title has been working towards the TRID implementation for over a year and felt prepared for August 1st. However, with the proposed delay we will be taking this opportunity to continue our education and training of TRID. While we believe that we have been proactive and ready for this change, there are still so many unknowns that will have to be addressed at the time of implementation. The industry should still prepare for 45-60 days for transaction to close due to the new timing parameters of the forms.

We’re working hard to be ready for all changes!
