The Heart of Ponce

I like to park at Plaza de las Delicias and walk around. You can see many restored buildings from Ponce's colonial past. Great for architecture and history buffs.

Ponce's Plaza Las Delicias surrounds the Catholic cathedral and the first fire station in the city, now a colorfull museum. It is a large pleasant plaza, with several fountains (lit up at night) and dense tree cover, shady and full of birdsong. The plaza is in turn surrounded by the 18th-18th century city hall, also open to the public as... More

Definitely worth a walk through to see the architecture. I went instead of the beach because it was raining. The drive from Combate was nice too. I spent 3 hours walking around, eating lunch, and hitting up the casino. Check out a coffee plantation on the way there. Utopia coffee in the plaza was perfect.

Great little square to relax for all ages. The church and firehouse are in the square and many benches to sit. We sat on the benches and drank beer from a local bar. Earlier in the night, there was a concert. Many children play and there are food trucks and ice cream available. There are a few restaurants/bars, but not... More

Stayed in Ponce with our youth group while on a mission trip. Went here every night and drove thru every day. It's very well lite at night and clean. There is always a police presense around so you fill safe. That is good when you have a lot of homeless hanging around. They were not pushy or anything, just living... More

We had a great time during Carnivale 2017. Very impressed by the clean up every morning prior to the next days events and crowds. Square was filed with vendors including food drink and local handcraft vendors

We really missed having something like this in OSJ, Nice park, lots of security, some food kiosks, popular ice cream shop nearby. You can hear music from the clubs and just kick back. Lovely in the evening.

It's a nice plaza with a bit of history, easy parking nearby. Some nice photo opportunities, but in my opinion not worth the drive from San Juan.

Walked with my daughter around and sat to enjoy the music of a Retreta by Ponce´s Band. Wonderful evening scenario and music!
