If you like to people watch or you want to see the Puerto Rican people this is the place. You can take a boat ride around the harbor. Walk down the boardwalk listening to good music or eating wonderful food of the island. You could not ask for a better place to see Puerto Rico.

Another place you would want to visit while visiting Ponce. It's a nice walk around the wooden boardwalk, and while strolling, sample the local cuisine. There are little restaurants lined up. Go ahead, sample our food. You won't be disappointed.

many restaurants were closed on the weekdays (Tuesday). It seems like a fun place on the weekends. A lot of police around, which was nice

Go ready to listen to music, dance, eat and have a great family day. We meet Hector Lavo's sister & took pictures also meet Officer Vargas which share information about the place with great honor. Great atmosphere.
