Unique place. Good sea food, a lot of drinks and beers at a good price over the street. A lot of fritters that are very good in taste like Bacalaitos, Alcapurrias, Pinchos, Mofongos, Piononos, etc. At the beach. Long street beside the beach

Take the road to Pinones that parallels the airport. You will find numerous food stands that serve the local treats. Plenty of stands that go on for about 4 to 5 miles. If you go out on a weekend be prepared to sit in traffic but the food is delightful. I have eaten there many times and never got sick.... More

We got bus #45 to Pinones from Isla Verde on a Sunday. (If you take the bus, you may have to wait when you wish to return, so be prepared to walk or take a taxi.) If you want to see the souvenir shops and all the kiosks, stay on the main road for a while. We found Asado Lechonera... More

We rented a beach house in Loiza as we traveled from the airport on highway 187 very curvy road hugging the Puerto Rico eastern shoreline with beautiful beaches, you will pass the Pinones area that is lined with kiosk or shacks that peddle local fried food and beverages. The kiosks fuel for the grills is pallet wood, on top of... More

We rented kayaks in order to explore the mangrove forest. It was a very unusual experience paddling through such a specific ecosystem. There are small crabs climbing the branches all around you and lots of iguanas hiding in the forest. It wasn't too physically difficult and I don't know where else you would have such an experience. We also had... More

We went to Piñones Beach for the day, on the recommendation of a local resident. So glad we did, it is a quiet perfect beach. The area road is lined with food stands and places to park. There are steps that are built over the Dunes to the beach. The water is clear Blue and very clean. We were there... More

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.

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
