Most accessible coastal fun in the city. A Marina with plenty of shops and kiosks to browse... But mostly look for a charter to take you out to one of the islands. But if you are on a low budget its OK to enjoy the shore by the Club Nautico.

Every time I come to Ponce I go to La Guancha at least a couple of times. The atmosphere is excellent and the food and drinks are great. Also, great place for pictures and to hunt for Pokemons. If there are special activities come early to find parking. The venue is especially packed on weekends. But no worries, there are... More

If you visit the city of Ponce you can't miss La Guancha Boardwalk. A great place to spend time with family & friends where you can eat your favourite food, listen to music or just walk down the Boardwalk.

It's a strip of restaurants, bars and shops! Best time to visit is on the weekend when they have live music. You can eat the original Mofongo there!

This is a fun location. Nice boardwalk with bands on the weekends and plenty of local foods and vendors. A classic boardwalk style entertainment location. A tower to see out in the little port with many sailboats coming in and going out. Great time.

Every visitor should visit La Guancha and enjoy the different food kiosks! I highly recommend an evening visit during the weekend, arrive early as finding a parking spot could be a challenge specially during special events!
