We stayed in the area for two nights. The local street vendors have good food for cheap. Its not fancy but tasty and everywhere there is cold beer. What more can you ask for. They don't open until 11ish. Don't expect breakfast anywhere. Don't be afraid to try new things you could be pleasantly surprised.

Hey it's simple. Forgot fancy and a/c . Fun, music , food and no diet over there. Sit and all the calories you can in one day with a beautiful ocean view in front. ;) Enjoy . Tip : rent a car , don't let taxi drivers rip you off. 90% of the island you can go with a GPS... More

On the recommendation of a hotel waitress, we ventured to Pinones. It was very interesting, but a lot of fun. Once you enter the area, you can see that you are NOT in tourist land any more. The area is lined with little restaurants with outside grills and make shift bars. We stopped at on of the kiosks and tried... More

We went with another group to the "long awaited Pinones" now everyone knows the best food can sometimes be found in a greasy spot. And that is what it was a greasy spot. The entire strip with food did look a little scary but I DID feel safe, my husband was the tour guide though this was his first time... More

We visited pinones with our children in april of 2014 and loved. Its miles of beautiful beaches and all food kiosks and gift stores are filled with true culture. This visit in october 2014 was even better we were able to stop at many places for a cold beer and a bite to eat several times along the way. It... More

If you are looking for good local fried food at the prices that locals pay, this is the place to come. The food at any of the kiosks along this several mile long strip of boardwalk, kiosks, and beaches is authentic and delicious. Be aware that the beaches along this stretch of the island are not clean, but they are... More

We drove over to Pinones to check out the boardwalk and kiosks on our last day in PR. It was very interesting but fun. Many areas are very run down and it was kind of hard to decide where to safely eat. We settled for one place with a large crowd and had chicken on a kabob and some tacos.... More

We turned the corner and I was surprised at all the trash everywhere. You have all these stands cooking the fried foods. The beef and shrimp empandillas were my favorite. Then if you overlook the poverty you see the most beautiful views if the ocean. My family parked on the side of the road we had the whole beach to... More
