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. Most guests consider the level of formality and service here to be informal. They are open for business during both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.


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 found in the heart of Old San Juan.

Combine your restaurant visit with local sightseeing options by checking out one of the many attractions in the area, such as Plaza De Armas.

People who visit will also appreciate the variety of outdoor activities found throughout the region. Any golfing guests who find themselves anxious to tee off won't want to miss the nearby golf facility, Fort Buchanan Golf Club. And what makes a breezy round of golf even better? A nap afterwards at Escambrion Beach, which you will find to be the most nearby beach and is only a short distance away away. And, these attractions are only some of the beaches, golf courses, and outdoor sports nearby.
