Ponce is both a city and a municipality in the southern part of Puerto Rico. Kick off your visit on the 16th (Sun): examine the collection at Parque de Bombas, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte de Ponce, then examine the collection at El Museo Castillo Serralles, and finally admire the striking features of Cathedral of our Lady of Guadeloupe. On your second day here, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Guancha, then step off the mainland to explore Isla de Caja de Muertos, and then look for gifts at Plaza del Caribe.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, read Ponce tour planner.

Los Angeles, USA to Ponce is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Ponce due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Los Angeles in July, with highs in Ponce at 88°F and lows at 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Culebra.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Take a break from the city and head to Secret Beach and Sun Bay. You'll get in some beach time at Blue Beach and Navio Beach. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Caracas Beach, kick back and relax at Black Sand Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with Gallery Galleon, and get engrossed in the history at Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum.
