What you'll do

We will walk through downtown Ponce to discover why "Ponce is Ponce," during this cultural and historical journey in the heart of the "Pearl of the South." We will meet at a local shop called Utopía, which is located inside a historic building. Utopía has a café, and we will meet by the tables in this area filled with historic pictures of Ponce, antiques, and quotes about the city. We will start our experience with an overview of Ponce's history. From the café, we will head out and walk south for several blocks, and then return via other streets. Along the walk, I will share interesting facts about Ponce's culture and history, as well as its legends and stories. We'll also have the opportunity to meet local people along the way. Ponce is the flattest downtown center in Puerto Rico, so it will be an easy one-kilometer walk. We will end back at Utopía.

Melina

I grew up in the heart of Ponce, in front of Plaza Las Delicias. Over the past 10 years, I've lived, worked, and traveled overseas in Asia, Europe, and the Americas. I decided to return to my hometown to advance creative tourism. I'm passionate about the history, culture, and architecture of Ponce. I spend almost everyday exploring, reading, working, or talking to people in the historic center—a place filled with stories and historical events few locals, much less visitors, know about. I'm excited to share facts and stories, and have a wonderful walk with visitors in the heart of my city.

More tips

Ponce is lucky to have sunshine and blue skies almost everyday, so it will be important to put on sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Also, wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes.
