What to see in Ponce

Ponce Attractions


Laid-back Ponce is small and easy to explore on foot. Most of its attractions are gathered around the main square of the Plaza las Delicias, including the Parque de Bombas, Casa Alcaldia, Museum of Puerto Rican Music, and the Catedral de la Guadalupe.

Although Ponce isn't located directly on the coast, it's near enough that travellers looking for fun on the beach can head to El Tuque, or take guided snorkelling or jet ski tours.

Ponce is also ideally situated for trips to the beaches at Guanica, or the inland colonial town of San German.
