San Juan PR Tourism FAQs

CONDADO TOURISM - We're here to help answer your questions about San Juan PR Tourism and the CONDADO TOURISM CENTER

Condado is to San Juan, what Manhattan is to New York City. Condado Puerto Rico is an upscale neighborhood located on the Atlantic beach and east of Old San Juan, and separated by the “Dos Hermanos Bridges”. Condado is a part of Metro San Juan, and a  sub barrio of Santurce.

The community land mass measures +200 acres, and in year-2000 had a resident population of 6,170 (US Census.)

“El Condado” is a hotel-dominated beachfront community, and associated with wealth and status, according to Wiki. As follows, “Properties are scarce, hard to come by and extremely expensive. and may cost millions of dollars. It is one of the most desirable places to live on the island and commands a premium.”

 

There are two National Parks in Condado, la Ventana al Mar (Ashford Ave.) and Condado Lagoon Park. La Ventana al Mar Park is Condado’s main public space. The park-space was designed by architect and urbanist Andrés Mignucci. La Ventana al Mar Park is flanked by two of Condado’s landmark hotels: to the west by the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel (1919), designed by Warren and Whitmore, and to the east by the La Concha Hotel (1957), designed by Toro Ferrer. Condado Lagoon (Laguna del Condado in Spanish) is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is an affluent body of water that flows freely between the Condado and Miramar neighborhoods of Santurce, a sector of San Juan. Condado Lagoon empties into the Atlantic Ocean through El Boquerón, an inlet spanned by the Dos Hermanos Bridge through the San Antonio Creek. Condado Lagoon is one of two natural lagoons in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

There are many restaurants in Condado. Many are expensive, none are super-inexpensive.

However, Panne’s makes a good breakfast and  has a 2-for-1 Cuban Sandwich deal on Wednesdays for $12. 

Munchie Burger is next to Stop & Go at the intersection in front of La Concha Resort. Munchie Burger has a good burger and fries for around $15. Stop & Go also has a modest lunch buffet and is more-suited to drinking on the porch area, which can be active.  There are decent-priced Empanada’s, and some Puerto Rican food spots that I think are over-priced.

There are also some very expensive places with fancy names, if that is your thing. 

We also rent bicycles and kayaks and SUP’s.

Great service and super nice owner! He gave us some great recommendations for where to go for a safe bike ride around San Juan. He even gave some food recommendations as well! A little hard to find but that’s what GPS is for, right! All in all a great experience and we definitely recommend.

Great shop! We rented 2 nice, new bikes for the week (helmets included). This is the place to go. And the best way to get around the surrounding area (Condado, San Juan, etc). Many streets in the area have a green paved lane for bikes which makes it safe and easy. The staff here are super nice and willing to answer any tourist question.

I was in Condado with my boyfriend last weekend and we rented 2 bikes. Everything was awesome, Mark (if I am recalling his name correctly) was very nice knowledgeable about bikes and price was reasonable. We will rent with him when we get back.

The bikes mark provided were perfect for San Juan. I used it a ton over the week and a half and it was a fun smooth ride even over the cobble stones. Good shocks are key. Weird thing is almost no one bikes in SJ despite some sweet dedicated paths near the ocean. Drivers can be a little crazy but I hope more people start biking. Then again it was nice to have all the paths to myself.

Great bike hire and great bikes. If you want to see San Juan this is the way to do it. The service offered is really good and bikes are in great condition, with locks and helmets. Would definitely recommend any one to use who wants to travel at your own pace, get further afield and see San Juan.
