Ocean Park in San Juan is an amazing neighborhood! This is exactly what you are looking for, if you are looking to have a truly local experience. Calle Loiza is becoming a trendy and popular area, while still maintaining its Caribbean and Puerto Rican flavor. Locals live, hang out, and work here. The people in this neighborhood are very easygoing, friendly, and welcoming.
Everything you need is within walking distance. Shops, restaurants, bakeries, colorful fruit stands, nightlife, hotels, casinos, and of course miles of beautiful white sand beaches.
You have so many choices for transportation:
-BUS: 75 cents
-PISA Y CORRE: (smaller bus) 60 cents
-TAXI: (not recommended) it is expensive and not necessary since everything is walking distance or accessible by other means of transportation. Still it is available nearby.
-BIKES: There is a rental shop close by if interested (Ocean Park, Santurce, Condado, and Isla Verde is a bike friendly neighborhood)
-TROLLEY: FREE!! Get a free ride to major tourist areas for free. Trolley stop is a few steps from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
-Birds like visiting the patio during the day. Lots of bird activity outside.
Hi, I'm Cristina! I am Puerto Rican, and I am an ESL High School teacher. I love sharing my home and having people from all around the world visit my beautiful island. You can count on me on helping you to get to know your way around the neighborhood. I love food and it doesn't help having so many amazing restaurants in the neighborhood. I hope you decide to stay; while you're here, my home is your home.
There is no place in the world I rather live. San Juan is a great city. It has all the ammenities of a big city and everything you love about island life. You have the best of both worlds. You can find yourself with a beach all for yourself and walk on a beautiful rainforest surrounded by nature, and in just a few minutes be back in the city, going to salsa dance the night away at a plaza full of people. Nothing like Puerto Rico!
Since it was our first time in San Juan, Puerto Rico, we had no idea what to expect save for what we learned reading some online reviews. So what a surprise! People in the neighborhood are so amazing, gentle and helpful. The descriptions/photos of the apartment and the area are truly representative. What you see is what you get. You can cook your own meal at home. There is also plenty of restaurants nearby. Try La Cueva Del Mar, tacos (and so much other plates) are delicious! Bagua is more expensive but fabulous! Only five minutes by walk from the Ocean Park beautiful beach with two comfortable chairs available (easy to carry on). There is so much to say… If you want to visit El Yunque rainforest or experiment bioluminescence, tours can get you there from the area (call them 2-3 days before). We have spent one day in the old San Juan (about one hour by walk). As walking girls, we appreciated to discover all the districts on our way to the old city. You can also take a bus right at the corner, but we were uncertain about the schedule. We have to mention that we always felt safe around the block. Cristina, the owner, is so lovely. She is caring and trying to make our stay the most enjoyable. Always reachable by phone too. We will also miss her quiet little dog Negrito (hope the spelling is right)!!! We would definitely recommend this place to anybody who wants to feel the Ocean Park ambiance and lives a local experience. Te amamos San Juan xxx
