About this project…

Welcome to our new project for the San Juan, Puerto Rico's Arts & Culture District. 

The Santurce district is 'on the other side of the highway' from the Condado tourism area and runs from Miramar (near the Puerto Rico Convention Center and Condado Lagoon) for about 4 miles to the Puerto Rico Coliseum and the planned Trocadero Entertainment Center.

Since Caribbean Consulting has our headquarters in a historic house near Stop 24 - we've been part of the redevelopment of the district since 2005.  In addition to our focus on Cultural Tourism with clients such as the FERINART International Artisans' Festival and the annual Encuentro de Santeros, we host El Museo de los Santos and the Ellie Pruess Collection in our offices.

As part of the Puerto Rico Hotel & Tourism Association's Marketing Committee, I have sat through meeting after meeting where Arts and Culture has always been mentioned as a natural 'competitive advantage' for Puerto Rico.

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).

In the future, it would be nice if the AMA (Bus Authority) continued the M3 to Hato Rey and then swung back to Sagrado Corazon so that people didn't have to wait, change and pay twice to reach these very important venues in Hato Rey.
