We went to Condado beach with a lot of hope of seeing something nice. We were quite dissapointed. It is an over crowded beach with not very nice sands. Skip Condado and go to Ocean beach , not too far, but much more charming and...More

We stayed at a resort in this area, and I must say, the beach is very clean and well taken care of. Surf is fairly strong for young children.

the water was a bit rocky.. not as calm as Isla Verde but beautiful nonetheless. I sat at this beach almost everyday and loved every minute of it

Have stayed at this location twice and both times it did not disappoint us. It's a nice section of beach with easy access to the ocean, facing North, you get a good breeze so it's not too hot.

Didn't get to spend much time here, but the beach was pretty and rocky, and the views were really nice.

Most of Condado beach is typically a little rough as it faces north and is on the Atlantic side of the Island. Many of the times we have visited the red warning flags have been up but quite a few visitors disregard them. Once you...More

This beach was beautiful. I loved that the locals came and sold all kinds of things. From hats and sunglasses to homemade delicious empanadas! However; if you're looking to take a swim, be careful....the waves were crazy! People were getting knocked around. This is not...More

Stayed in the area for two days so I visited the beach a few times during the day. The beach was not very wide where I stayed or walked during high tide. Still had a great time.

Along a combination of international architectural view. From Miami Art Deco to modernistic. Unfortunately even in el Condado you can see the effects of puerto rico financial situation

HI, We will in Condado during Christmas time. We are looking at AirBnBs as well as hotels. Many of the AirBnBs do not include parking. I want to have a car as we like the sites outside of the city. Does anyone know if it is easy to find paid parking lots where you can pay to park overnight? Also, what do you suggest? Stay in Condado for 8 nights or is there any other places around the island to see. I am interested in seeing Ponce, Caves in Camuy, Rainforest, sugar cane plantation. I like beaches but don't like to sit on it all day. Thanks for any info.

The chairs and umbrellas are freely available to hotel guests for those hotels next to the beach on a first come/serve basis. Some of the hotels that are not next to the beach have agreements with the hotels with access so... More
