It is better at night when the fountains are on and lit up, but still a nice walk with multiple statues and a big cathedral separating the plaza in the middle and behind the cathedral is the oldest fire station in the Caribbean. Great ice cream shop right there and restaurants and bars on all surrounding streets...worth a stop if... More

The plaza is the center of town, with municipal buildings, banks, churches, and shopping on all four sides of the plaza. There is a nice fountain in the middle, which is lighted at night. There is a lot of history that can be learned by looking at all of the things in the plaza.

I really liked this area. It was a nice place to sit and relax after spending the entire day sight seeing. We were able to grab some ice creams and enjoy the view. There is plenty to see from here. The architecture of the nearby church and the buildings is impressive and the "Parque de Bombas" is visible from here... More

Take a stroll around the plaza and you quickly realize how much history surrounds you. From architecture to City Hall, casino, cathedral, it's all there.

the place is very nice, clean, there is always lots of people around. very pretty when the water is on and running. Only thing I did not liked there are few people asking for money and they ask you every time they see you.

This was a nice little area to walk around. There are a lot of interesting buildings and statues, but parking was a little difficult when we went.

When you visit Parque de Bombas (fire station) you are in the Plaza de las Delicias. Please take a minutes and walk around the plaza. It's kind of pretty. There are statues, ice cream vendors, and stores surrounding it. I enjoyed taking the extra time to stroll around the plaza.

The plaza design is very nice and painteresque and lovely, yet the people are not very open with foreign people making it very uncomfortable to walk around and bad for tourism. I stayed in the Ponce Plaza and Casino and me and my husband felt very uncomfortable walking around. The City Hall should really educated and encourage diversity to increase... More

This is were everything converges in Ponce. Within the same square you will find the fire station of Ponce, the Cathedral of Ponce, the City Hall, Hotel Melia, the Department of Culture office, bars, restaurants, libraries, and the Lions that watch the plaza, very nice Lions sculptures with vivid colors. A lot to see, a lot to enjoy and a... More
