Plaza Ventana del Mar, San Juan

4.6
#6 of 14 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 »

  • Wonderful place to visit full of history and historic places. I will visit again.
  • Huge waves. Nice landscape, nice beach. Crabs living on rocks
  • Great place to enjoy any outdoor activity and engage in the local cultural events!!
  • Great place to relax after a walk in Condado. Very breezy, various restaurants nearby with very different food offerings. Very close to the beach!
  • This park is a great place to have a date, people watch, relax after a day at the beach, have a bite to eat, watch a concert or a movie. It is one of my favorite places in San Juan.

Where to stay in San Juan

If you're looking for colonial-era lodgings, explore the streets of the old town area, where many grand buildings house guesthouses and hotels. The neighborhoods of Condado, Ocean Park, and Isla Verde contain the majority of beach resorts, with some glamorous and upscale options sitting alongside more laid-back and family-friendly ones. Rental bungalows just back from the beach, as well as side-street hostels, provide the city's budget-friendly places to stay.
