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.

Bordwalk full of debris and bathrooms really dirty. Drunk... More

This is a great attraction on Ponce. You can go to make exercises, to walk with your dog in the beach, to eat lunch or dinner. But at night you may go with friends and family relax and enjoy the music.

If you want to eat Puerto Rico's cultural food, including sea food, this is the place to go. You can even feed the seaguls with sardines that are sold for a buck. Walk on the board walk and enjoy the sea breeze. If you enjoy music and partying, you have to stay and dance, sing, drink and eat.

We visited in June 2016. I were amazed with amount of Mom and Pop shops that they have; from local vendors to amazing restaurants. Most of the restaurants are locally owned, no chain restaurants with the best local food in Ponce. We enjoyed are time here and will visit again.

Good place to escape Ponce's city rush. One of the spots have the best mojito I'd ever taste. The beach is just some minutes away walking. Great place to see the sunset on the south part of the island.

We visited La Guancha twice during our stay this time, once for lunch and once in the evening. Love this place! Food was good and felt very safe walking around the area.
