  • Nice gathering place to relax, sit on a bench, eat some take out food, and watch the people. Good shopping nearby, and many food options to explore.

  • So you will learn that Puerto Rico starts celebrating Christmas at the end of October, so all over there are decorations. That meant it was a little hard to see the beauty of this plaza as it was...

  • Plaza Colon ,like so much of what you see in Puerto Rico is draped in traditional old world charm. The architecture has withstood the test of time and weather including the tragic hurricane of late. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is that there are still buildings that I believe deserve to have been repaired since the storm and have not yet.
