Condado is an attractive and somewhat ‘designer’ destination, located just east of the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan. Here you will be able to enjoy a good range of city attractions, fine restaurants, and some of the best beaches in Puerto Rico – making a holiday in Condado the perfect choice for families, couples, and anyone else looking to explore the area at their own pace.
If you’re thinking about planning an excursion or day trip during your holiday to Condado, then you’ll find you are within easy reach of the old district of San Juan. This richly colonial area is filled with fascinating 16th century houses and churches, many of which feature architectural flourishes in the Spanish baroque and gothic styles.
In the south of Condado you will come across the popular shopping areas at Wilson Street and Aldea Street, both of which are superb places to look for a souvenir from your holiday to Condado! You will also find a rich selection of restaurants and bars in this area, making it a superb place to come if you’re interested in trying some of the local cuisine – like so much else in Puerto Rico, the food combines a wide variety of influences, including Native American, African, Spanish and North American.
If beaches are your thing, then head straight to the Atlantic coast. Here you will come across some superb stretches of fine, golden sand, offering ideal conditions for swimming and sunbathing. Children can bathe safely in these waters, and you will also find a good selection of water sports available to try – have a go at windsurfing, or skip across the waves on a jet ski! Another popular past time here is diving, and there are a number of diving schools around Condado where you will be able to hire out equipment for the day, or take a lesson or two. The excellent underwater visibility means that you will have no problem in spotting some weird and wonderful examples of the local marine life!
Alternatively, head inland to explore the dramatic and scenic landscape of the area. The Condado Lagoon is a particularly beautiful spot, and a great destination for hiking, cycling or even just for a picnic. Check out holidays to Isla Verde
