Utilizing the bountiful marine offerings that surround the island, Puerto Rico's Aguaviva has created a haven for diners looking for fresh seafood and Latin cuisine.


Aquaviva always serves the freshest seafood available, going so far as to have fresh oysters flown in on a daily basis.

Aguaviva is a oyster bar that offers Caribbean and Latin American cuisines, as well as seafood. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be informal. This dining option's open during both dinner and lunch, so make time to stop by.


Lighted jellyfish lamps hang from the ceiling, looking down on the contemporary dining room, making you feel as though you are under the sea. The open kitchen allows guests to watch while the chef creates his masterpieces, and a ceviche and oyster bar is located in front of the kitchen.


Aguaviva is located near the center of Old San Juan.

Combine your restaurant visit with some excellent sightseeing possibilities by heading to one of the region's many nearby attractions, including Plaza De Armas.

Many guests also enjoy the selection of activities made for the great outdoors, found throughout the region. Visitors who consider a day on the fairways relaxing have the option of spending time at the nearby golf club, Fort Buchanan Golf Club, which is located not too far from Aguaviva. Though some guests will better enjoy a morning at Escambrion Beach, which you will find to be the most convenient beach and is only a short distance away away. Remember, those two are only some of the beaches and golf courses within the region.
