Please rent a car or get a taxi take you to this local haunt in Loiza. The fried food is totally indulgent but so delicious. I especially love the Bacaladitos and the Alcapurrias with crab.Bring lots of wet ones for your hands and room in your belly for an indulgent Puerto Rican Friend Food Fest.

I love going here to get the "typical" cuisine for cheap. Pinchos, empenada's, bacalao, everything here is fried and delicious!

Nothing fancy here. Just good cheap food and drinks. It's a bunch of small shacks, ocean front vendors selling typical Puerto Rican fried goodies. And cheap beers. Just a 5 minute drive from Isla Verde and the airport. Stay in the busy, we'll lit area in the front frequently patrolled by police.

I love the Pinones area. But dont go too far deep into the Pinonoes bc you could get robbed it is isolated from everyone and there isnt security out there at all. I like to stay in the beginning area close to Isla Verde. My dads friend owns a spot by the beach which it pretty cool. She plays music... More

The breakfasts were very good but my missing clothing on returning home left a bad taste in my mouth . In fact I will NEVER return to PR or stay at a Gran Meilia resort again !

What not to like, hot grilled foods and cold icy beers/ pina coladas next to the crystal blue waters.
