Plaza Ventana del Mar, 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.

  • 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.

  • Great spot for romance, to relax or for a bit of family fun. Public bathrooms available and yummy food on site, including a Ben & Jerry's. Plus, the breeze and the view of the sea are real treats!
  • Great park with a big green, a pier and the park is right next to a great beach. The whole area has plenty of restaurant options as well and seems well maintained.
  • Paradise..... it's priceless to stop at this area and simply sit to enjoy the incredible view, the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves. One of the best Zen spots around this area of El Condado, San Juan.
  • Not exactly a good place... So crowded and many people using profane language
  • Nice place to enjoy leisure time and to enjoy the ocean. Right in the heart of Ashford Avenue, close to the restaurants and pubs in the area.. Fantastic and even romantic area...
