Often referred as "La Placita", it's the area surrounding the Plaza de Mercado in Santurce and the heart & soul among locals. Come during the daytime and enjoy some papaya fruit shakes inside the Mercado building while shopping for produce. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights people flock to la Placita for drinks and some occasional live music.

    Bar Gitano

    2 reviews

    This restaurant is a nice place to seat outside and people watch. The service is good and attentive. The food is average, and does not compare to their sister restaurant Budathai. The tapas are a little on the salty side and have an Asian Fusion flair. Be advised their are no wines by the glass only by the bottle.

    While it's tough that Puerto Rico really has no country (state?) wide transportation to speak of, inside SJ is getting better and better. The inner city train is clean and easy to navigate, from buying tickets to figuring out where to go. The bus system uses the same ticket system, which is great and economical, and the bus system reaches ...

    We rented a car from Sixt via Priceline during our visit to Puerto Rico. I'd like to say my overall experience was a complete disaster. The car company is off the airport, which is not a big deal as they would send their shuttle drivers to pick you up immediately. As soon as you arrive to the car rental location ...

    Old San Juan

    63 reviews

    Old San Juan is a lot like Pier 39 in San Francisco. It's great for cruise shippers and first time travelers - a great gateway into PR. However, the traffic is awful, the food is inauthentic and overpriced, and the attitude of the folks working is hardly inviting or friendly. Great for souvenir shopping and checking out the fort. For ...

    Beautiful Architecture, if you are going to a concert you'll like it very much. It's not worth it to expend time just to see it. There are a couple of good restaurants in the area you may want to try, Texas Do Brasil, Steak house, Sheraton Hotel Convention Center.
