El Monte Town Center

Set off Highway 14 in one of the most developed areas of Ponce is the El Monte Town Center. Frequented by locals, the town center is surrounded by an upper middle class neighborhood with a bit of expendable cash that draws more upscale shops to the center. Still, El Monte is anchored by popular super saver Walmart and there is a Payless shoe store in the mix.

This 78,274 shopping center is an open air town center, where you walk outside to go from shop to shop. Fortunately, a covered walk way is available to keep business flowing on rainy days without insisting that shoppers break out their umbrellas.

Getting There

Positioned toward the outskirts of Ponce, two and a half miles northeast of downtown, El Monte Town Center happily welcomes residents and vacationers who are exploring and browsing shops in this part of the city or in the surrounding area. Whether or not you are staying in this location, you are free to stop by.
