Ok, November is not high season. But I was expecting at least something. The boardwalk looked nice, we got to admire the fish and the pelicans. But it was dead. Not one place was open, nobody around. Got bored after 15 minutes and left.

It is a place to relax specially when you go in the early afternoon. Restaurants are great and offer variety of food, depending on taste.

La Guancha is a popular place in Ponce located oceanfront. There you can take a ride on the boardwalk , feed the pelicans and fishes and have an awesome view. There are many places to eat tasty and artisans to buy.

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.
