Ponce's boardwalk and beach area isn't so popular for swimming, but the people-watching and socializing are great.

Quiet, easy place for lunch on a Wednesday. Beautiful marina and fresh air. Food was just fine; $20 for a basic meal including a happy hour sangria. Supposedly this place is hoppin' on the weekends but I was happy for the chill.

If you go to Ponce this is a tradition for some.on the weekend you get dolled up and you go walk around it traditional appetizers and have a drink or two and listen to all types of Spanish music and some pop top 40.

This is a place were most locals go to. It's great for all ages, there's food everywhere and karaoke nights. Just a recommendation, if you plan in taking your kids go at early hours, at night it can get very crowded and the atmosphere is more for adults, from 7am to 7pm are really good hours. The beach is very... More

Loved seeing all the families. The whole family with kids were there. Kids riding bikes and playing games. Music and good food at the kiosks. We ate at Kiosk 19 twice and highly recommend the chicken wings and Medallia beer. Really relaxing and enjoyable.

We didn't go during the night time, so don't know how busy or good it is for a night out. We did go during the day though, and besides the bars, there is little to do. Feeding the fish takes perhaps 5 minutes to get boring. The beach isn't very good at all. For sunbathing it's too windy and the... More

We went on a friday around noon and it was deserted. Not many people and few kiosks open. The only entrataiment were the fishes and the pelicans that you can feed. Definitely nothing special.
