#7 of 19 in Parks in San Juan
With its eclectic style and waterfront location, Plaza Ventana del Mar draws locals and tourists alike. The clean, conspicuous square leads to the west end of the public beach and features sculptures, fountains, and the city's very own Walk of Fame (look for Ricky Martin's star, among others). Explore the quaint restaurants, bars, and shops, dine on the local cuisine, and browse for souvenirs. The site variously serves as an outdoor cinema, market, and venue for concerts, festivals, and parties. A visit to Plaza Ventana del Mar represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Juan online trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Our Celebrity New Town/Old Town tour took us here for a quick visit. The tour bus parking was quite a problem and we had to park up the street a bit. We were then given ten minutes to see the park and...  more »
  • Beautiful park next to the sea, in which since you get will stimulate all your senses. Starting with the smell of the sea, the colors of the Sun and the sky in the horizon, feel the texture of the grass and the sand when you walk by it, feel the sea breeze on your face and more. It is relatively small, but it has everything you need to take a breather and relax from the hectic daily life or to enjoy your vacation. It has a few benches where you can lie to see the sea. It also has a road that takes you to the edge of the beach and if you feel like you can walk feeling the waves of the sea at your feet. In a part of the sidewalk has plaques of illustrious Puerto Ricans or celebrity with Puerto Rican ancestry, who have been recognized for their contribution to the arts. It is a great place to take pictures, especially of day. It has different funds, urban (buildings, restaurants, and hotels that surround it), plants (by the gardens) and obviously marine. I recommend go with comfortable shoes for walking. Bring your camera and stick selfie.

  • This park is worth a visit. We happened to have a hotel room with a balcony overlooking the park, so we discovered it early in our trip. Good people watching, and it has a "walk of fame" for some famo...  more »

  • My best 3 hours in San Juan were spent sleeping on this beach! Easily accessible from our apartment in Old San Juan - we rode bikes here and crashed at the beach for a few hours - there's lounge chairs to rent, waiters serving you from the local hotel, access to clean nice restroom and... and all is good here!
  • Nice little green space in the middle of hotels and shopping areas. Small walkways lead to a beach on one side and a small overlook by the eaves crashing on the rocks on the other side. Few places to grab a drink or ice cream right beside. Nice place to take a break or relax and have access to a devent beach.
  • Ve con la familia especialmente con niños pequeños. No se permiten bicicletas, lo cual es probablemente una buena idea. Si quieres un rato para relajarse y disfrutar de sus hijos jugando bajo el sol mientras toma una copa de vino o una medalla. (De botella por supuesto) medalla de lata es para salvajes. Guiño 😉 ------------- Go with the family specially very young kids. No bikes allowed which is probably a good thing. Spend some time just chilling and enjoying your kids playing under the sun while you have a glass of wine or a medalla. Bottle of course, medalla in a can is for savages. Wink wink.
  • Really beautiful park, right on the water. Has beach access, ben and jerrys, waffles, etc. Lots of people do yoga and acrobats here!
  • Very windy no parking. Only private pricey parkings.
