Biking Condado & Old San Juan

car free bike paths and bike-friendly areas in Condado and Old San Juan are plentiful.

Biking Condado & Old San Juan

Biking from Condado to Old San Juan is quick and safe on the car-free bike path. Biking around the perimeter of Old San Juan is casual waterfront island biking at it’s best. This is our most-popular actitvity and bicycles allow you to do more sightseeing and cover more ground while exerting less energy than walking.

Beaching in Condado


Condado's best beaches & blue ocean views.

It’s all about the beaches! You would still have an amazing vacation if you did nothing else other than eat, drink, and go to Condado Beaches “Atlantic Beach” and “La Ventana al Mar Beach/Park”. The local LGBTQ+ community is also well-represented at Atlantic Beach near the Oasis and Oceana entrances.  

La Placita Friday/Saturday Night

La-Placita-Mercado-Mark-Derho 12x12

Market by day, food and music and dancing in streets by night

Tourists and locals alike love this hotspot.  Local music and dancing in the streets create a memorable and enjoyable mixed (local and tourist) scene. From dusk to around 11pm it’s family-friendly dining in local restaurants at fair prices. After midnight, it’s time for the old folks and the kids to head back as the young adults flood the bars to frolic. Police are onsite and the area is safe for everyone, and for reasonable safe partying.     

Jet Skiiing at Ocean Park

Enjoy Local Food at Bebos

Bebos Cafe Loiza San Juan Puerto Rico

Bebos is where many locals go to eat lunch & dinner.

Good local food and generous-sized plates. Two or possibly  even three entrees and a bottle of wine can be had for $50. The A/C is high so it’s chilly inside. Bring a long-sleeve shirt or light sweater if you tend to get cold easily. Bebos will sometimes display local art and we have discovered an artist on those walls that we now support.
