Ponce is Puerto Rico's 2nd largest city. It is was founded in 1692 and named after Ponce de Leon. It is situated in the center of Puerto Rico's southern coast.

Walking around the city is what I would picture Old San Juan would be like without all the commercialism.

Cities visited on this trip to Puerto Rico: San Juan, Humacao, Ponce, Fajardo

    Kings Icew cream is the MOST wonderful Ice cream in the world. I usually satisfy my craving with the little pushcarts and get "uno de coco" but Kings; is still the reigning champion...and those sugar coanes,,,,,yummy!!!

    Kings Cream is the best natural ice cream u will eat. Normally its a big line but u can avoid it if you ask them about the other near by store. everytime im in ponce, i get coco ice cream @ kings ice cream. I sure wish they had a store in ny.
