Crowded on Saturdays! Full of fun, food and friends. Enjoy the best roasted whole hog on the island with great local side dishes. Party all day. Lots of shopping for trinkets or souvenirs. Park and enjoy the day. Family and make new friends.

The pork was amazing definitely worth the trip. We bought lots of souvenirs for great prices and the people were very friendly especially this little shop called New Yorican. The owners were so friendly and funny. Can't wait to go back!!

We couldn't go on the weekend but droid greet Rhett inn Friday. The El Rancho Original definitely have you the experience, including music. A bit more pricey. El Mijito had better pork and bar prices but no music and a few flies.

There are only a handful of vendors there during the week. It is not "closed". But you will not experience the same atmosphere during the week.
