Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

La Guancha Boardwalk

La Guancha Boardwalk
September 24th, 2014

There are several great places to visit in Ponce, Puerto Rico, and one of them is the La Guancha Boardwalk. It’s known among the locals as Paseo Tablado La Guancha, and it’s a great place for couples, friends, and families to hang out and get to know the locals (known far and wide as the Ponceños).
 
It’s one of the most visited places in Puerto Rico and receives more than 750,000 visitors a year. It’s situated in the town’s seashore, and the beach isn’t exactly a place where you’ll want to take a swim. The point of your visit here is to socialize and have fun. For the most part, you can just hang out and relax while you engage in people-watching. You can also try out the bacalitos, which is a local fried delicacy made from freshly caught cod fish. You can also buy some bread, but that’s not for you. The bread is for you to feed to the friendly pelicans in the area.
 
Among the kiosks and food establishments here, you may want to try Moncho’s Canelao if you love coffee. They have at least 60 different coffee variations made from excellent coffee from Jayuya. You can add some homemade burgers to that, while you enjoy music bursting from the speakers.
 
For families with small kids, there are many vendors selling cheap toys in the boardwalk.  But your kids will probably enjoy a visit to the Jose Angel Zayas Colon Children’s Park. This is one of the newest additions to the La Guancha Boardwalk. Here your kiddies can enjoy more than 60 games and exciting rides for kids of all ages. People with special needs are accommodated here as well.
 
You may want to time your visit here during the late afternoons, so you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunset. At night, the entire boardwalk is a fun place for grown ups as the whole place feels like a party. You can enjoy your piña colada, and join the people as they dance the salsa in the streets.
 
This is especially true when you come here during the weekends, but the place may not be so lively on Monday and Tuesday afternoons and evenings. It’s all a matter of timing—when the locals have something to celebrate (such as a victory of the local high school basketball team) then the boardwalk will always feature a party for the Ponceños. And you can always join in the fun. On weekends, there’s always a party at night. On Mondays, though, they aren’t as festive.
 
Still, there are always some people coming here no matter what, and you can just rest and relax in the gazebos or perhaps enjoy a game of volleyball. You may also stroll to the observation tower, where you can enjoy a view of the Port of Ponce. The sunset views here are fantastic too.
 
All in all, during the day it’s a great place for everyone and that includes kids. At night, it’s where the grownups party with drinks, good food, and non-stop dancing.
