We are currently staying in Santurce. We have walked the neighborhoods to the nearby beaches and to restaurants as well. Everyone here is very friendly. The police are constantly patrolling the area, day and night, which we like. Feel very safe here. And we really enjoy the so called boardwalk right on the beach. Definitely would return to this area.

Beautiful residential area where the Plaza del Mercado closes and turns into the night life of the city. This is the place to dance Salsa. I was surprised of how many people were there and public safety, even closing the streets for pedestrians. Plenty of restaurants for different tastes. Lots of loud music and dance.
