Parada 12 – Miramar

Miramar’s 1908 neo-gothic church by Antonín Nechodoma features ‘Tiffany-style’ stained glass windows.

Miramar has always been one of San Juan’s favorite neighborhoods because its in the middle of everything! 

Overlooking Condado Lagoon, this was the location of San Juan’s first resort hotels and grand mansions built high on the hill to catch refreshing breezes in the days before air conditioning.

You’ll find great restaurants, supermarket, gourmet shop, banks, cinemas and cultural venues.

You can walk to Casa Aboy or the Conservatory of Music or just jump on the M3 bus that runs from Old San Juan to the Tren Urbano for just 50 cents (exact change required) to explore the rest of the arts district. 

Miramar is also centrally located for the Puerto Rico Convention Center and Cruise Ship Piers.  Walk across the Condado Lagoon in about 10 minutes for beaches, casinos and nightlife.

Whether you book your hotel in Miramar or just visit for a movie, enjoy a great meal or a stroll through our designated Miramar Historic District, you’ll want to make sure to visit our side of the lagoon!
