La Placita de Santurce is a must stop for anyone visiting Puerto Rico. The location was founded more than 100 years ago as a two-tiered market square. The market was a place where people could buy fruits, vegetables, meat, and much more. Nowadays, during the day it functions as a market place with some open restaurants. In the evening, beginning at 6:00 pm, the famous Placita de Santurce fully comes to life. You'll find recognized restaurants and local kiosks that sell fried foods like empanadillas, alcapurrias, and bacalaítos. The atmosphere is livelier from Thursday through Sunday, when locals flock here to hang out, have drinks, and dance salsa.
