  • Me encanta el parque del litoral. It has great views and long side walks to jogg along the coast of bay of Mayagüez. There are a couple restaurants in the area, expensive but good food. If you are interest in options for children there is an infants park in the southern end of the park (toward Cabo Rojo).
  • Great family place. Awsome walking, restaurant,children park,great parking safe, security guards gorgeous ocean view. Relaxing peaceful.
  • Is an awesome place with amazing views and very calm so is perfect to jog alone, read alone, or go walk around with a group of friends.
  • Beatiful beach-front park to relax or excercise during the day. Avoid at night
  • Great for kids and family! ;-)
