Ponce Activity for single woman

I am in Ponce this week by myself and would like to take a city tour, adventure tour, or just do something that has a guide. Is there a specific tour group or activity that is best for a young woman traveling alone?

Unless you just find a guy on the street to be your guide, I don't think you will have any problem. I am guessing you don't have a car?

The City of Ponce runs a tour right from the Fire House that goes around and stops a few places, but not at the major sites (Serrelles/Tibes etc). Getting to those will be trickier as most tour companies don't go everywhere. I think Ponce has a bus or something that will get you to La Guancha where you can take a boat over to Caja del Muertos island on a weekend day. You can ask them at the firehouse (there is a tourism info booth).

The adventure companies that are in the area are also guided, but finding one that will pick you up in Ponce may be a problem. West Side Adventures maybe?

The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico has a tour of a restored colonial coffee plantation in the mountains just above the city of Ponce called Hacienda Buena Vista. There are other tours here:

Hacienda Buena vista was a nice visit. They do several tours throughout the day, but I think only 2 per day are in English.

The Tibes Ceremonial Centre was very interesting as well and the guide very informative.

Enjoy your time in Ponce!
