Ponce is both a city and a municipality in the southern part of Puerto Rico. Get a sense of the local culture at Hacienda Buena Vista and Ponce History Museum. Explore hidden gems such as Cathedral of our Lady of Guadaloupe and Guanica Dry Forest. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponce: La Escalinata (in Yauco), Pozo de la Virgen Sabana Grande (in Sabana Grande) and Playa Rosada (in La Parguera). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Tibes Indian Ceremonial Center, take in panoramic vistas at Cruz del Vigia, stop by Mi Coqui, and contemplate the long history of Casa Wiechers-Villaronga.
