This area's a breath of fresh air, away from the large hotels of Condado and Isla Verde, but right between them, on the same beautiful beach. Easy access to grocery stores, some good restaurants, and the highway. We stayed in a condo in this area, one block from the beach (the Ocean Park neighborhood north of McLeary is a gated community) and its quiet streets lead to a very laid back beach.

I LOVE OCEAN PARK! (Yes, I’m shouting.) I’ve stayed here twice in my two vacations to PR and will stay here again in the future. This area is more residential than Condado or Old San Juan and not as dense or crowded. The beach here is better than in Condado; larger sand area and less people which is perfect for me. Here you’ll find more local establishments and people who actually live there though there are chain stores here too. Plus it is a short walk to the “action” in Condado. It’s an hour & 45 min walk into Old San Juan so you may want to take the bus or taxi. There are smaller, boutique type hotels here but I’ve always rented a condo/apt and both times it has turned out fabulously (see Posada Colonial review for my most recent stay). If you stay here, learn some Spanish as many of the locals do not speak English but they will try to help you nonetheless. And there are plenty of great places to eat; see my reviews for those too.

If you want to stay in a quiet, residential area a short trip away from all the sites and sounds the greater San Juan area has to offer, Ocean Park is THE place to stay! I WILL be back!

This quaint little neighborhood is sandwhiched in between the two main tourist beaches of San Juan: Condado Beach and Isla Verde. I stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in Ocean Park for a week in June 2008. The neighborhood is gated at night so that people can't just drive in. Still, most of the homes have tall fences all the way around. Most of the houses have charm and are there are some real gems that are right on the beach and currently in disrepair. A good investor could make a killing in this neighborhood. One tip: Eat at the famous Puerto Rican bakery and cafe called Kasalta. Fantastic pastries and sweets.
