Let there be Life!

Like my biblical allusion? I'm sure you'll appreciate it more after I give my brief explanation about Condado. This is where all the nightlife is. Just outside of Viejo San Juan, it's the place where all the major resorts are, and where all the great San Juan beaches are located. Sure, you may run into an occasional bum, but they are harmless, I assure you. The main strip in Condado is Calle Ashford. It runs from the eastern boundary of northern San Juan to the bridge to get to Viejo San Juan. There is so much to do in Condado that you could spend your entire Puerto Rican vacation here and not even bother leaving (although strongly advised to do otherwise). People speak English here and can spot Americans from a mile away. There are many cool nightclubs, restaurants and shops here, which makes for a fun time if I've experienced it.

Mixed Messages

One thing that can be confusing in Condado is how to spot the places that are great and compare them to the ones that aren't anything special. Everything has the hip, trendy look to it here, so you could wind up going someplace like Buenos Ayres and paying a lot for "whatever" food, or you could find yourself sitting elbow-to-elbow with your friends and family in a small place with amazing food. It all depends on your sources, and I am determined to give you a pretty good reference on where TO go and where NOT to go.
