La Guancha Jul 04, 2011
La Guancha is a boardwalk with a bunch of eateries/bars. I was there on a Saturday night, and the whole atmosphere seemed a bit somber. There was live music and a few bars playing clubby music. The food wasn't great either (lots of fried things laying around under heat lamps).

This attraction called "La Guancha", is located in southern Puerto Rico, bordering the Caribbean Sea. It's basically a boardwalk filled with many different local eateries. They mostly sell delicious "fritters", like what we call "bacalaitos", or fried cod fish. There are also "empanadillas", which are basically fried meat or cheese filled turnovers. Apart from the food, the boardwalk is a great place to relax and take a light stroll. At one end of the boardwalk there is a lookout tower, giving an elevated view of La Guancha. You can see many big fish. These are not the prettiest, and do something really weird with their mouths once in a while. Just outside of the boardwalk there are fun playgrounds for kids and a cool arcade. Ponce's beach is very near the boardwalk, you can even walk to it. La Guancha provides a good, relaxing area filled with great eateries!! I recommend this to any traveler visiting Ponce's beach.
