Part of Plaza las Delicias this remarkable building still standing up as a reminder of Ponce big fire where close to 100 homes burn down. Show Ponce official color Red and Black. In from of the fire house and around the Plaza you will find Free Trolley ride that will show you the city area.

Parque de Bombas is a great place to visit, It is small and not a lot to see. If you like history is a great opportunity. The all town is beautiful itself.

After seeing the museum be sure to buy tickets ($2.00 each) and go on the bus tour of some interesting places in... More

Along with this you can get ice cream (cocoa is good and I also tried piña mixed tamarindo), go souvenir shopping, take photos, and eat all in one spot! Great for everyone to experience! Toll parking only downfall!
