Indulge in the Best of Puerto Rico from the Top Ponce Resorts
Known as the land of plantains, pork, and sofrito, the best way to get acquainted with Puerto Rico is through your taste buds. Be sure to try empanadillas, half-moon-shaped turnovers filled with meat and potatoes, and some rellenos de papa, mashed potato croquettes filled with flavorful picadillo (ground beef hash). These foods are never far when you stay at the top Ponce resorts.
Step Back in Time from Resorts in Ponce
As you explore Ponce, you’ll find many old buildings and monuments are a nod to the city's past, painted in bright, pastel colors with Spanish colonial flair. Built in 1882, Plaza las Delicias is a city square that has long been the epicenter of Ponce and the heart of its culture. The plaza has been used as a political meeting place for centuries, and these days is the site of most major events in Ponce, from festivals and protests to sporting events and concerts. Resorts in Ponce are not far from Plaza las Delicias, which is home to several historical buildings. You’ll find the storied Casa de la Bomba station, which was part of Ponce's first fire department, as well as the Casa Alcaldes (the mayor's house). This iconic building was built in 1891 and still functions today as an office building.
If you want a view of Ponce like no other, be sure to visit the Cruceta del Vigia. This massive concrete structure was built in 1984 to pay homage to the original, where early settlers once looked out for merchant ships and would-be invaders, including pirates. Today, the cross-like structure has withstood natural disasters including many a hurricane, and stands at the highest point of the city. But to get to the top, you’ll need to climb about 300 steps, so bring comfortable walking shoes.

Also worth a stop is Caja de Muertos Beach, located on the Isla de Caja de Muertos, an inhabited island off the coast that’s only accessible by ferry.
