Café Valencia

Restaurant | "Cafe Valencia"

Quote:
This is my favorite restaurant in the whole island. Here you won't find typical Puerto Rican food, but you will eat at one of the best places this island has to offer. They sell the best paella marinera I have ever tasted, but you can order anything from the menu, because all they serve is good.

They are not located in the tourist area of San Juan, but they are pretty close. Almost everybody you ask will know where it is located since it is a restaurant which has been around for many years. Pedro is one of the supervisors and he will make sure you have a great experience at this great restaurant.

Ocean Park/Punta Las Marías Beach

Attraction | "Ocean Park Beach"

Quote:
The best beach to visit in Puerto Rico if you want to see the hip crowd of beautiful people and have a great time. Ocean Park is a very beautiful beach - hundreds of young Puerto Ricans gather to have some beers, play racquetball and have some fun. If you want to find where the beautiful girls of Puerto Rico put on their G-strings and get wet, this is the place to go. It is located in the Condado area very close to hotels but it is located in a residential area. If you rented a car, you can park in the streets, but you have to arrive early if you want to find a parking. It gets really crowded. Don't park where you shouldn't or you'll get a parking ticket for sure.

Mercado De Santurce

Attraction | "La placita de Santurce"

Quote:
This is the best place to visit on Friday nights. This is a area, not a specific place. There are a lot of pubs and bars which serve very big and cheap drinks. Everyone who likes to have a drink and forget about work on a Friday visits this place - people start gathering in the streets at about 6pm and the last to go usually do so at 2am. El Sabroso is the bar I recommend because of the very large drinks and very cheap prices. You can get a lot of Johnnie Walker Black for $5.00. It is located very close to the tourist area of Condado, and almost anyone you ask will know where the Plaza del Mercado of Santurce is located. You will get to live the carnaval experience you almost always see in the ...Read More

Moorings

Attraction

This a nice club in the Ashford Ave. located right in front of the Marriott Hotel in Condado. On the weekends, this place fills up with lots of young people looking for a good time. There are different areas were you can do different things. A lot of people gather right in front of the main entrance, where they have a bar; some go inside and get a table or sit at the other bar they have inside. If you want to dance, they have a dance floor, that although very crowded can be quite good. I highly recommend this place because of the kind of people that come here, which create a very safe environment and a party atmosphere.
