  • Typical square with its fountain, Cathedral. Very nice well maintained. Very good restaurants to its around like cassava, seek to Bianca, we responded very well. Appetizers of Puerto Rico. Fig trees they used to serve. Excellent.

  • Chevere. There were machines and crafts and food. The Mayor has spots to take pictures on the occasion of Christmas. There was so many people at the time that we went so it was comfortable.

  • Un buen ambiente familiar.
  • Beautiful historical plaza in Mayaguez. Great for kids to run around and enjoy the fountain, statues and local cuisine. Close to the plaza there are nice restaurants, a coffee place for snacks and local gelato at Rex Cream. I love to get a cup of gelato and sit on the plaza to relax and enjoy with family and friends.
  • The town did a great job on preserving the original marble structure! Beautiful landmark!
  • Fun place to take your family to have a day out eat ice cream watch the people go by
  • Beautiful and clean. Cozy area with a nice coffee shop.
