A walk in your sandals across the street to the beach, Ashford Avenue hums with life - restaurants, hotels, casinos, groceries, and shops. You can rent a paddle board at the bottom of the street to experience the lagoon and its sea life, or get a massage. You are an 11 minute drive from historic Old San Juan, and ideally located for day trips to other experiences on the island. This property is located at the corner of Ashford and Barranquitas street, 4th floor, across from Vanderbillt Hotel.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

The Beach
To get to the public beach, walk across Ashford and head through the park between the Vanderbilt and La Concha hotels. There are beach towels and beach chairs in the condo. There is a cold shower in the park next to Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Please be careful of undertow when swimming (meaning keep your feet on the ground). The waves are usually pretty tame, but if you have small children or prefer waveless, you can take a left on Ashford and use the beach at the bridge.

Enjoying Condado

Doesn’t matter what time of day or night, there is always something open and someone on the street in Condado. This is San Juan’s resort strip. While no place is completely without risk, there is no reason to be concerned about safety at any time in Condado (oh, and the water’s good too).

You can rent a paddle board for use on the lagoon almost immediately to your right outside the condo door. There’s a park at the end of the lagoon where you can rent a kayak.

We are not going to recommend restaurants because we haven’t tried them all and most are decent to excellent. We will point out that that building across the street that looks like it’s wrapped up in green wrapping paper is a hotel, and there is a restaurant on the roof with a great view of the lagoon. ‘Tacos and Tequila’ in the Vanderbilt across the street has seating almost on the surf. Also, the Oceano Restaurant eastward off of Ashford also has surfside ambiance. There are Starbucks in both directions. The best coffee in Condado may not be Starbucks, but Barista Squared at 1102 Magdalena. Hard Rock Cafe is to your right on Ashford. There are several Chinese restaurants in both directions, Turkish restaurant to the east not far from a Cuban, an Argentinian on Magdalena, and of course Puerto Rican everywhere.

Puerto Rican food is heavy on rice, chicken, and pork. If you want to go native, try the mofongo.

H&R Market is just a block east of the condo. If you are good for a slightly longer walk, you’ll save money by shopping at the Walgreens a little further, and past the Walgreens is a small Whole Foods-type market called ‘Freshmart’.

There are casinos in the La Concha and Marriot Hotels.

The nearest mall is Plaza Las Americas, 10 minutes by car.

When walking around, please do so with your eyes open. Unfortunately, the infrastructure needs maintenance in places – like there are holes in the pavement and pieces of hardware sticking out of the sidewalk. Don’t go home with a twisted ankle.

Elsewhere in Puerto Rico

If you have time, we hope you are able to enjoy some of the other attractions on Puerto Rico. If you’re here, you’ve already done your research, so we’ll go over things lightly. If you do nothing else, DO spend some time in Old San Juan. This is a 19th century Spanish colonial city that you can approximate in Europe, but nowhere else in the states. The shopping is great, the restaurants are wonderful. Of the two forts, El Morro is the more interesting, but you will need to see it during the day. The historic cathedral in Old San Juan is the second oldest church in the western hemisphere. See if you can find where Ponce de Leon lived.

Other popular attractions in Puerto Rico:

Fly or ferry to Culebra or Vieques, two islands off of Puerto Rico. If the moon isn’t too bright, experience bioluminescence from a kayak in Vieques.

Rain forest on El Yunque. Plan to do some walking to enjoy this site.

Caves and radio telescope near Arecibo.

Visit Puerto Rico’s second largest city, Ponce, or the hip west coast.

To appreciate the character of Puerto Rico, it is helpful to drive through the mountains. Visit a coffee plantation. Brave a world-class zip line.

Beaches everywhere. We see a lot of pink people because they don’t use enough sun block.

What you do is walk into a major hotel and tell the concierge that you want to go on a tour. She will be really, really glad to sell you one.


Puerto Rico is tropical. Clouds invariably come from the east, and they are sometimes wet. If a little rain falls on you, know that it will probably stop in 15 minutes.
Events

Sometimes you get lucky, and the exact same time you planned your vacation, there’s a local event that you would be committally insane to miss.

Jan 6 – Three Kings Day. You thought Christmas was on December 25th? Not in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans take an extended Christmas seriously. Christmas, Puerto Rican style, is evident throughout Puerto Rico in early January. Visit Old San Juan in the first week of January.

Jan 20 – San Sebastian’s Day. Puerto Rican style revelry in Old San Juan. Warning: There will be so many happy Puerto Ricans in Old San Juan that moving will be like, well, molasses in a Vermont winter, or maybe a Los Angeles freeway at rush hour. Don’t dream of trying to drive there.

April – Good Friday passion play in Old San Juan, probably near the cathedral, with a uniquely Puerto Rican flavor.

Apr 26-28 – a re-enactment of the defeat of a British assault on San Juan in 1797. Dress-up, muskets, history. Old San Juan, again.

Jun 24 – St. John’s Day. This is not a major holiday, but if you are in Condado on the night of Jun 23rd (that is, the eve of St. John’s Day), you will notice that the beach is unusually busy. Party time again. Falling backward into the surf three times at the stroke of midnight will bring you good luck.

Jul 4 – New Years and weddings are also often excuses for fireworks, but a July 4 show on the beach is reliable.

Check the calendar for other local events.


Experiencing Puerto Rico


What do you think of when you think of Puerto Rico? Hurricane Maria? Jennifer Lopez? Sonia Sotomayer? Chi-Chi Rodriguez?
How about Salsa, Mojitos, and Piña Coladas? Puerto Rico is proud of its rum (Don Q or Ron del Barrilito, probably not Bacardí, which is a Cuban import). Ocean Lab, in Isla Verde, makes some excellent craft beers, and the Puerto Rican standard, Medalla, beats Budweiser hands down. If you’re here around Christmas, look for a bottle of Coquito – it’s delicious.

If you want to go native and love to dance, we totally recommend going over to La Placita on any weekend. It’s close enough to walk, but take an Uber. There are decent restaurants over there, but it costs nothing to just run over, join the fun, and practice your salsa.


Everyone will have their own impressions, but here are ours: There is a little of the New Orleans spirit here. Puerto Ricans don’t care a lot about how you dress or what you believe, and if we lose power and the lights go out, expect Puerto Ricans to drink, dance, sing, and party. After all, it would be a shame to have a life and forget to live it.
