If you have a car and are staying in isla verde don't miss the opportunity to go to Pinones - the kiosks will provide quick service to get fried local food, pastelitos, lobster, shrimp or cod fish filled taco like treats. Miles of kiosks for the choosing. We stopped @ Carmin restaurant and enjoyed it. Casual and by the beach... More

Great Spot to grab a cold beer and some roast pork without having to go up into the mountains on the Pork Highway! You can also get some souvenirs but you should try to haggle as much as you can. Just make an reasonable offer and flash "some" cash (remember crime is every where) and be prepared to walk away.... More

Best place in Puerto Rico to eat Fruituras hands down! Me and my family stopped in Pinones (187 is a great scenic route) everyday for lunch or a quick snack.

Many PR locals seemed to visiting the Pinions beach area when we were vacationing there. Take 187 toward the point and following the coastline. Parking can be difficult in some sandy pit areas - beware! We got stuck in one spot. The road weaves around and there are many places from which to choose to have a lovely day there... More

Paseo de Pinones is a "first-rate nature trail and bike path" according to a popular travel guide. After doing a little internet search (possibly outdated), I found out that bicycle rentals were available at the state park and little food kiosks lined the trail. I packed up my family and headed to Pinones. Unfortunately, Google Maps directed us to the... More

Every vacation to Puerto Rico has a mandatory stop at Pinones. If we fly in and arrive mid morning we get our rental car and head directly to Pinones beach, about 10 minutes from the airport for a swim in one of the many beaches and then hit one of the many kiosks for cold coconut water and local fritters,...

The best meals I had in PR were in Pinones. Eat along the beach, stop at carmin's for lunch and visit the many kiosks on the weekend. Amazing experiance.

We like to ask locals for advice on eating like a local, and we were directed to Pinones. So when our hotel doorman asked for our destination to tell the cab driver and we said Pinones, he did a double take and said, "are you sure?" A little more questioning revealed that this is not a tourist place at all,... More

If you have access to a car while visiting San Juan, take the short drive to Pinones. There is a beach area for swimming (we didn't swim here but others were swimming), as well as a long Boardwalk. Parking can be at a premium during the weekend, but it is worth the effort eat at one of the local BBQ... More
