Ponce's boardwalk and beach area isn't so popular for swimming, but the people-watching and socializing are great.

La Guancha is an evening place for chilling. It's a boardwalk with music playing, lots of different food stands. Many stands all offering different things. People dance on the boardwalk and generally it's a good chilling place.
