Closest Fisherman Village I believe is in Las Croabas in Fajardo, close to El Yunque Forest and the Bio Bay Lagoon.

Working. Some of use do have real jobs.

Condado is a very trendy area. It doesn't have the type of market that you're looking for. You can but fish at the supermarket but chances are, it'll be previously frozen.

Thanks to both of you for answers. Didn't mean to ruffle feathers. Just an old retired guy setting vacation plans. Best part of my day :)

I have never been here but you can try this place in Isla Verde.: www.marisqueriaatlantica.com/marisqueria.php…

I hear it is pricey but a friend got a take out seafood paella from there for a bunch of us and the seafood was wonderful.

There is a small Fisherman's Villa (Villa Pesquera ) in the town of Catano, Vietnam area where you may be able to buy the catch of the day. They mostly sell their fish to the restaurants in Catano area.

There is another place on Matadero road, Puerto Nuevo area, where most of the fresh fish caught in Cabo Rojo area is sold. (If I happen to remind its name will post it...)

Fish at Marisqueria Atlantica, is pretty fresh and of very good quality, but a little expensive.

SunMoonStars, are you saying that in Catano there is a "Vietnamese" section that sells fresh fish?

Thanks again to all for suggestions. I was just reading about Catona yesterday and thought we might have lunch at Don Tello. Didn't see anything about Vietnam but will look into it. That is just a short ferry ride away from OSJ.

Marisqueria Atlantica gets horrible reviews and they also mention "very expensive". Will look into the Puerto Nuevo area.
