“A delightful afternoon on the boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We enjoyed a nice late afternoon walk at La Guancha. The boardwalk and nearby beach are pleasant and appeared to be quite safe (give the policemen patrolling the area).

“Not worth a trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The beach is nothing to write home about. The boardwalk has a strip of beer, fried fish, and pizza places with noisy music. Much better food is available in Ponce.

“Pretty, but dead”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Maybe it was because we went mid-day, during the week, but there was nothing open and nothing to do besides taking a picture of a pelican. Given the reviews, I was quite disappointed and expected more.
