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!

If you like eating fried foods hear music give you a beer and your children will have nowhere to run, this is the place.   You can eat seafood. Ls to feed fish during the day. Climb the tower and take pictures.  Spend time with family or friends.

This is a boardwalk around the Ponce Bay close to the Ponce Yatch Club and the port. There are several kiosks that sell anything from a cold beer to your traditional fried fare (be weary of food sitting on glass warmers they may not be the freshest choice, always request it is fried while you wait.) Some of the kiosks... More

Don't waste your money on gas going to this place. All stores are closed. Only 5 bars/restaurants are open. Nice view of water, boats. Big fish that kids can feed for $1.
