Discover the second city of Puerto Rico with a day trip to captivating Ponce. With its unique architecture, laid-back vibe and colonial history, Ponce offers visitors a chance to discover Puerto Rico past and present. Wander among the splendid neoclassical and art deco buildings, linger in the shady squares and admire the sparkling fountains in this cultural and friendly city. Visit Parque de Bombas, the historic black and red striped firehouse that’s easily the island’s most recognisable building. In contrast to this loud style, La Perla Theatre is an elegant, calming neoclassical delight, with a six-column entrance and soft lemon walls. Ponce Cathedral is a quintessential colonial building that could have been lifting straight from the Spanish campo. Pop inside to see the huge organ and beautiful azure arched ceiling. See the Museum of Art, home to a remarkable collection of Pre-Raphaelite art, including the breathtaking painting Flaming June by Sir Frederic Leighton. You can’t miss the El Vigía Cross, Ponce’s answer to Sao Paulo’s Christ statue. This huge 100-foot-tall cross looks out across the city from Vigia Hill, with a ten story vertical tower leading to a panoramic skybridge where visitors can admire the view. Just round the corner is the Serrallés Castle, former home of the island's oldest rum-producing family, which now houses a museum on the history of the sugar cane and rum industries, as well as a reconstructed 1930s house and even a butterfly garden. Don't miss this opportunity to visit charming Ponce, where your friendly guide will show you the true spirit of Puerto Rico.
