Ponce Vacations

Puerto Rico
Ponce, the second largest city in Puerto Rico, was founded by Ponce de Leon's grandson. It is much less well travelled than San Juan, and is extremely laid back, with little to no nightlife in its central square. Perfect if you want to relax.

A great place to visit to see the southern part of the island that is super different from the northern part.

This historic city south of PR is proud of it plaza, monuments, museam Rum castle and its musicians. Most of the famous celebrities like Ricki Martin, JLo's family and many other come from the south of the island and Ponce. Its great festivals and music make it a true journey to the Puerto RIco culture and lifestyle.

Ponce is a pretty, tree-lined city in PR that seemed very European. It has a great downtown park area that was busy at lunch with food vendors and artists. When we visited there was a great photography exhibit displayed throughout the park and an actively admiring local population. There is also a large Pier area that is popular on the weekend, but it was fairly deserted mid-week.
