This place is great to go with friends on Fridays and Saturday nights and in the morning on Sundays with the kids and their bikes! It has a tower with a beautiful view of the ocean which would be perfect for a romantic night outing...

The city of Ponce and La Guancha is a entertaining way to spend the day with your friends and loved ones, just walking up and down the long boardwalk tasting a variety of Puerto Rican foods and others typical burgers are there too! Artisans selling hand made gifts to take home.. many beers and wow home made mojitos with natural... More

You can not come to Ponce and not visit this place! It is a traditional location that will capture your interest...you will come back for more.

Nice plays to go in the evenings and relax. Family oriented. You can also feed the fish by the pier. Loved it.

Went on a quiet day mid/week. Board walk with many stands offering fried beach food. I hear there's music and dancing on the weekend. Beware: Bathrooms at one of the kiosks where we stopped for drinks was not usable/disgusting. I asked the waitress again where SHE went, and was then re-directed to the main Bathroom for women on the boardwalk... More
