Ponce and the Southern Coast Travel Guide


Plan Your Ponce and the Southern Coast Vacation

With sandy coves and palm-lined beaches tucked into the coastline's curves, southwestern Puerto Rico fulfills everyone's fantasy of a tropical paradise. The area is popular with local vacationers on weekends and holidays, but many beaches are nearly deserted on weekdays. Villages along the coast are picturesque places where oysters and fresh fish are sold at roadside stands.
