When i first went to la guancha it still wasnt up and running, because o the damages. In time more places started opening up. Food spots are a hit and miss. My fav one is Pura Vida, excellent food and service.

Great place to go and eat finger foods. Still recovering so you can’t walk the boardwalk but the restaurants are open and good. Feeding the big fish sardines is cool.

La Guancha is beautiful beach harbor with many small local restaurants where you can enjoy the best puertorrican food. You can feed fish, sea birds and even yourself.
