Rincon Puerto Rico Article
I notice that the article for Rincón, Puerto Rico page requires a large amount of sidescroll to the right in order to view the entire article. I suspect it is because of the template layout and the photos placed on the right hand side of the article.
I am not too familiar with templates and layout style and was wondering if someone could look at the Rincón article and possible suggest how to make it more visually appealing.

I have read the guidelines..I dont understand how? My Rental Listing, is NOT Appropriate, I have been in business since 2004, and have all my permits for a business, there are some here that dont have legal permits...I dont understand how it was listed by me a year ago,(I backdated when I placed it here) http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Rinc%C3%B3n&oldid=1088620 , (13:23, 16 March 2009 188.8.131.52) And its just recently it has been getting kicked..I know it is not easy for everyone that works there to monitor everything, and you might think I'm a pain in the butt, But I would like to know where I can post this than? I am part of the Tourism Association of Rincon Puerto Rico, and I am listed on Trip Advisor, for Accommodations in Rincon.Am I posting it in the wrong category? Am I using the wrong code? Is this the right code?:
If it is the write code It would read:
Ryan, Im not a real estate agent..nor am I rental agency..--184.108.40.206 13:26, 5 October 2010 (EDT) I have been listed here since 2008? http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Rinc%C3%B3n&oldid=993205
Ryan...Have you even visited anyones web site here? Have you ever been to Rincon Puerto Rico? In Puerto Rico there are only a couple Hotels, the rest are owners villas, converted houses to inns, houses, apartments, some legal and some illegal( meaning they do not have operating permits, We Have ALL our Permits from (http://www.prhta.org www.prhta.org) The Puerto Rico Hotel & Tourism Association (PRHTA) We are a Guest House and use Vacation Rental..., Consensus, Who would have to make this? How would I prove to you that, I am NOT a broker..And am NOT trying to solicit anything... I dont understand what the situation is.. If you would see, www.rincon.org, http://www.rincon.org/lodging-vacation-rentals/rincon-s-south-caribbean-inns-guest-houses/ , I am a Member since our Rentals inception 2005, We are part of the Tourism Association of Rincon Puerto Rico(TAR), and are a well known Vacation Rental in Rincon OR Guest House... If you were to understand the difference between a Vacation Rental and a Guest House or Inn, they are the same.. the only difference is that a Vacation Rental pays Tourism tax of 7%, while a Guest House is paying 9%, And a Inn pays 9% and has to have more than a certain amount of rooms. We pay Tourism tax,of 7%, hence we use the word Vacation Rental. Further more, The "EV" is my wife's nickname, -EV's Vacation Rentals, I hope I cleared some things up for you and your Consensus forming friends.

Ryan, thank you for being very understanding. Since, I live in Rincon PR, I know that there are only 4 Hotels here: Horned Dorset Primavera Hotel, http://www.horneddorset.com/, Hotel Villa Cofresi, http://www.villacofresi.com/, Rincon of the Seas Grand Caribbean Hotel, http://www.rinconoftheseas.com/, and Rincon Beach Resort, http://www.rinconbeach.com/,(But, Rincon Beach Resort is actually in the town of Anasco) It is an older hotel and was around first and had picked up the name long ago. The hotels in Rincon PR are not like NYC hotels. These hotels are anywhere from 2 stories to 4 stories high, and do not offer the number of rooms to accommodate travelers that are here on vacation, which is one of the largest vacation spots in Puerto Rico, that is why there are so many vacation rentals, guest houses villas etc..here..
EVERYONE on the list in WT, weather its Budget, Mid-Range or Splurge..NONE are Hotels!! And if the next editor edits it, I would explain that to him/her. Maybe before they edit it, or remove someone they would perhaps take a look at this page before they remove it. Because ALL would be out of the Guidelines for letting Non-Hotel listings included.
I would like to say thank you again for your help..I know you help out many people and edit a lot of pages, But instead of just pointing people in postings to read the guidelines, you can try to explain it to them a bit more, and be understanding that working with these pages are New to them..Not someone that has been fixing other peoples work since 2005..If they are posting it in the wrong place, show them where the right place is..dont just remove it..tell them they added it in wrong place, or if they are using the wrong code, give them the right code, and tell them to fill this one out and re-post it, thanks..just a thought..joei
When I move it and get the nerve up to do so.. Do I copy it from Mid-Range.. Delete it from there.. than move to Budget, edit.. and paste it there... Is it that easy... I will wait, till you answer.. Beside that we received a email stating The Spot for eating went belly up..Closed up a month ago, and will not re-open this season... Someone said, she moved back to the states.
I was also clicking around here in Puerto Rico There is a lot of stuff on here...But I found a problem some of the towns at the bottom of this page for Aguadilla http://wikitravel.org/en/Aguadilla, they go strait to a edit page.. is this common, or is that a bug?? or is just that there is nothing going on in those towns...which I know Maricao, has the Coffee Festival and I think they hold the Orange Festival there too..I have only been there for the Coffee..God I love the smell of Coffee, there you can smell it for miles and if the wind is right even before you get to the town, But you dont want to go there when they roast the beans..It smells like burnt coffee.. Thank again..--220.127.116.11 17:23, 7 October 2010 (EDT)
There are some edits that also need to be done with Rincon..I DONT think I should be the one to do it...Since I do live here some would think I am Bias, and that is not so..Starting at the top..

While a worthy cause, these don't look like travel activities to me so I've taken them out. - Shaund 01:09, 12 October 2010 (EDT)
Believe it or not, in recent years do to wide spread news about our animals travelers from the states(USA) are coming down here as snow birds(people that stay longer than 3 months) and wind up getting a house guest(dog or cat) and bringing it back up to the states, ARF has a success rate of 65%, and the percent keeps going up...They are a no kill shelter,While most in Puerto Rico are cause of the population. I know it doesnt look like a travel activity, but we have such a diverse age group that travels here (18-70 maybe older) that we see much of the older snow birds, picking up a companion and leaving with them to their new home. In some cases ARF also pays for the dog/cats medical shots nuter and even helps the person with fees for traveling back to the states.. I donno..Its not up to me, but I guess you know how I vote.. --prVacationRental 09:30, 12 October 2010 (EDT)
