Eating and Drinking: Nightlife in the Condado area Eating and Drinking Review

One of the things I enjoyed the most about staying in the Condado area was the number of places we could go to in the evening just to grab a drink. Perhaps the two places we enjoyed the most were the Barlovento and Hacienda Don José, both located within easy walking distance from the Condado Plaza. The Barlovento ( is located at 1043 Ashford Avenue and it's open from 5:00 pm to 2:00 am (closed on Mondays). It is a really nice outdoor cafe with a good wine selection, which can be a nice change from rum after a few days in Puerto Rico (!). As for the Hacienda Don José (1025 Ashford Avenue; 787-722-5880), what we enjoyed the most about it was to be able to sit at a table at the back of the restaurant with the window open to look at the sea (though we had to laugh when the waitress warned us we might get cold!). I ordered what seemed like a Caribbean version of Long Island Ice Tea and it was very tasty! And of course, in between drinks, nothing beats going for a nice walk on the beach and watching the sunset :o)

Dress Code: Most places seemed pretty casual, even the lobby bars of some of the big resorts.
