Amazing views in the AM. Family oriented... prices are good. Great food can be found. At night it has a good environment to have a few drinks, dance and just relax. I personally recommend Kiosk #7 La piña del Swing!!! The servers are so attentive, there's music all day long. Food is great and their piña coladas are amazing!!!

We stopped here after a day at Caja de Muertos. It's a great place to spend a couple hours. There's a place where you can buy sardines and feed them to fish/pelicans. There are little booths where you can buy little souvenir type items. Then there's the food...oh, the food. Delicious. It was the second time we had mofongo while... More

There was ample parking and an easy stroll on the water. There were many kiosks selling drinks and food. It had a very family atmosphere.

The salsa band was the highlight of our visit here. A nice boardwalk, along the sealine, stroll will take you to the end of the pier that has open air bars and restaurants alongside. Gentle people of all ages make the visit a pleasant experience.

I went to this place multiple times because of the great food they serve in some spots, I would recommend to try the Seafood Mofongo at El Pilón Borincano, It's ridiculously good!!! La Guancha can be really crowded with locals on weekends, specifically at night, which is the best time to go there because everything is open, but this won't... More

If you want to hang, eat, dance and drink , this is the perfect place in Ponce, Puerto Rico. You find a variety of foods in nearly 25 different kiosks , very nice service and cheap price. Chicken Wings in Kiosk #19 (El Tablado Sports Bar), Highly Recommended.

Beautiful boardwalk area with great food. There is a look-out tower where you can see the coast, mountains, and beach. The breeze is also great! Also you must feed the Tarpon.

Excellent food, great portion, and the place is clean. Affordable prices, and fast service. I recommend this place. I asked for a single order for 2 people and the serve was enough for 4 people. The environment is for families, and friends.
