We stayed in a condo in Loiza Aldea, we were close to everything, and different beaches. Awesome stay, kids loved it, want to move there.

It was very pleasant and relaxed place. Beach near by and two swimming pools. Friendly staff workers and security guard walking around the premise. Very affordable and easy to get to.

While rich in history, it is also the place were the music of Bomba y Plena was born. Good to visit on Sundays and Saturdays.

Also the National "BOMBA" Festival is celebrated that day and there is a competition of drums called "tambores" playing the Loiza Bomba rythm, bomba dancing and negro culture poems.... More
