With a population of just under 200,000, a rich history, well preserved colonial architecture, and a reputation for fun, I had high expectations for Ponce. Those expectations were dashed almost upon arrival, but, admittedly, I never gave Ponce much of a chance. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon, and the city center was like a ghost town. Things livened up a little with a live concert, but the place continued to give off a strange vibe that its best days were long behind it. Expectedly, things wound down early Sunday evening. As I walked around the following morning, I was disappointed to find the city still lacked any kind of buzz or the type of energy typical of a proper city. So, after visiting a few of the main attractions in downtown, I hit the road and headed for the southwestern corner of the island.
