Week-end trip: Food, Fish, Fun!

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.

This place offers lots of options for relaxation. From watching birds or fish to just enjoying the view of the coast or inland. From the tower you can see almost all of Ponce including Isla Caja De Muertos. There are lots of options for food. If you buy sardines to feed the fish, beware of the birds. They will snatch...

La guancha offers lots of food, souvenirs, music, entertainment and the best frappé at the little Frappe bus. Kids friendly. We had a great time there.

Went here on a week night and only a few places were open, but we did get some of our best Puerto Rican food at one of the kiosks. This is a good place for the little ones to feed the Pelicans and see big fish in the clear water. This is also the location where you can catch the... More
