Another place to consider is Ocean Park. Located between Condado and Isle Verde Beaches, Ocean Park is a wide expanse of golden sand fronting the turquoise Caribbean. The area is lined with hotels, resorts, and condos as well as a number of sports complexes.

Parque Beach: Parque Beach is so named because it is backed by a city park called Parque el Indio. Visitors can split their time between the beach and the park, making this stretch of Puerto Rico coast line double the fun.
