We went here to snorkel. There were a few fish, but, when we were there, nothing worth going for. Several cruise ship people were there, but they were surprised the beach was so small. I suggest if you are on a ship and want to go to a beach, ask to be taken to Balneario el Escambrón for a real... More

Perfect, safe, calm waters. We tried paddle boarding here for the first time. My husband got it right away. Me, I am a water buffalo and fell in after a few minutes. I paddled on my knees for an hour. It is a great place to learn because the water is so calm. We rented our paddle boards through our... More

We left La Concha resort and did the complete walk around the lagoon. There are plenty of opportunities for pictures as well as a few nice places to just sit, relax and enjoy the view. If you are looking for a nice jog or run location, this would make a great loop. Also a few good places along the way... More

We walked to the condado lagoon area one evening. It has a beautiful view of the san juan city skyline at night. The bridge has a nice area for walkers and joggers.

My boyfriend and I stopped here after a few drinks while we decided on dinner. It was a place that had a few couples. Great place to take pictures.

Condado Lagoon is a body of water formed by the island known as Old San Juan connected to Condado by three bridges. I stayed at the surprisingly good Hotel Miramar at 606 Juan Ponce de Leon Avenue in Condado. I was able to walk to Condado Lagoon, restaurants and casinos, without paying the exorbitant cost of hotels with the same... More

While looking for a place to swim on a recent business trip, I learned about Condado Lagoon and it's part in the Puerto Rico 70.3 triathlon. Our hotel was on Ashford Street near Condado Avenue and after a short walk I found myself at the foot of the Dos Hermanos bridge. On the left was a small park and a... More

Located right on Ashford Ave. it is very close to a lot of hotels. We walked here from our hotel and went paddle boarding and had a great time! This was great for our trip because the ocean was very rough but the lagoon was calm enough for kayaking and paddle boarding.

Here you will find kayaking and paddle board rentals for a reasonable price. Family oriented environment, if lucky you may see manatees. Two spots for rental, one right in front of Condado Beach. Free Movie nights on last Saturday of each month.

Very inexpensive place to get a pedal boat, paddle-board or kayak, its very inexpensive. The problem there is the parking, there are not many spots and you can not leave anything visible in the car if you want to keep the window glass intact.
