La Ventana al Mar Park and Beach, San Juan

Visit La Ventana al Mar Park in Condado for Beach Fun

La Ventana al Mar on Ashford Avenue in the district of Condado, of San Juan, Puerto Rico is a large public space built in 2004 fronting the Atlantic Ocean. 

The park is flanked by two of Condado’s landmark hotels: to the west by the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, and to the east by the La Concha Hotel (1957). The 1.8 hectare public space was developed by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s Tourism Company, and has been credited as one of the principal motors steering the district’s urban revitalisation efforts.

Designed by Puerto Rican architect and urbanist Andrés Mignucci, La Ventana al Mar has won numerous awards for design excellence including awards in the American Institute of Architects Puerto Rico Chapter Design Awards, the Puerto Rico Architecture Biennale, the Miami + Beach Architecture Biennale (Bronze Medal) and the Iberoamerican Architecture Biennale. In 2016, La Ventana al Mar was exhibited at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin as part of the Demo:polis–the Right to Public Space exhibit.
