Visiting the boardwalk in La Guancha is a beautiful experience. La Guancha has a beach, an observation tower, an amphitheater, and many kiosks. The food at each of the stands was delicious with wide varieties of appetizers called pinchos:) My favorite was the karaoke. One favorite restaurant was Paseo Tablado La Guancha.

At La Guancha in Ponce on the very first Kiosk you find the Best Mojitos in Ponce. They also have typical salads and other dishes, plus an enjoyable terrace.

We visited the La Guancha Boardwalk on 2/16/2015. The Boardwalk is a large stretch of land by the marina on the other side. There is a very large parking lot that leads towards the boardwalk. Despite the fact that many of the restaurant buildings were vacant, (not distressed), there was a moderate amount of visitors and local families who wanted... More

Terrible service and our food had pieces of foil paper in it. The waitress did not even bother to tell the manager about it and they fully charged us for the food even though we did not eat it. Bad service at the Pilon Borincano and even grosser food quality plus it even had insects.

We drove over an hour to get to the boardwalk, only to be thoroughly disappointed!! There are only a handful of restaurants open, with nobody in them. 5 people total on the beach. The main beach bathrooms have their doors open but no running water, no lights, no supplies! Is this a joke!?
