Scenic Viewpoint
“Right on the trendy stretch of Condado, you can enjoy the “window to the sea” park, an urban beachfront oasis with tropical allure by day and vibrant at night with frequent live music events. A popular event is Ventana al Jazz, the last Sunday of every month from 5 around 10pm; be sure to bring a blanket, your favorite drink and enjoy the free show at the “window to the sea”. Ventana al Mar offers the perfect entry to the beautiful beach of Condado. Right across on Ashford Avenue, you’ll find luxury clothing and jewelry shops, and you can get some pampering time at the spa.”

“It is so beautiful. Rent a Stand Up Paddle or a pedaling small boat and paddle across the Lagoon. You might catch the sight of one of the Manatees that live here! You can rent out the paddles for $20.00”

“What an amazing Hidden Gem right and beautiful San Juan. Puerto Rico has so many beautiful Parks but I think more tourists need to see. This one for example was so lovely. We saw chickens and iguanas basking in the Sun. The Banyan trees are so lovely providing lots of canopies , and the fort seems to be tucked in the middle of the park . And they were so many cute little areas. It was a great walk through. Wonderful place to have a picnic. Or just enjoy the beauty. ”

“Such a fun place to come and feed the pigeons. There are hundreds of them. There is always someone there who sells corn for one dollar, and the pigeons will go as far as sitting on your hand or arm if you let them. Kids love coming here, and again you're able to admire ancient trees, beautiful architecture and gorgeous views of the ocean. ”

“This large lot was transformed into a beachfront park with full excercise, walking and scenic facilities at a calm and clearwater beach in San Juan. Carefull: Can get crowded during weekends and festivities. ”

“This beach is really amazing. This is more of a local's beach with surfers and nice sand. This is a good place for kids as the water is a bit calmer and there is public bathrooms.”
