While these are all wonderful attractions - San Juan has an amazing 'local' neighborhood, just a few minutes from the major tourism areas.

The Santurce Arts District is located just across the Condado Lagoon and 'on the other side of the highway' from the Condado Beach Resorts.  Located along Ponce de Leon Avenue from the lagoon to the new Convention Center - our  'Avenue of the Arts' has the highest concentration of Theaters, Museums, Nightlife, Galleries, Restaurants and Street Art in the Caribbean!

The arts district starts at 'Stop 12' in Miramar and continues for approximately 4 miles with the largest concentration of arts, culture, nightlife and entertainment in the Caribbean!

Starting near the Puerto Rico Convention Center and Condado Lagoon, the route is easy to explore with the M3 Metrobus that runs all the way to the Tren Urbano for just 50 cents each ride (exact change required).  To continue to the Trocadero/Coliseum you can change to the Tren Urbano's Sagrado Corazon Station for one stop to the Hato Rey Station for an additional 75 cents each way (purchase a fare card at the vending machine).

The site is easy to explore 'stop by stop' from the PARADAS menu with easy 'getting here' instructions for each stop.

Start to experience San Juan like a local - its easy to discover Santurce from anywhere in San Juan!
