Every Thursday and Friday night, the historic public market (1910) in Santurce hosts the most popular street party in San Juan. While the bars, clubs and restaurants that surround the market are open every night – on Thursday and Friday night, the streets are closed to traffic and the party takes over.
There is no set schedule, but you'll usually find great Salsa here in the bars and on the streets. The party starts about 7pm and continues past midnight.
Plaza del Mercado is easy to reach from Condado via Calle Washington and then Calle Canals (other side of the highway) or by taxi. Ask your hotel for the best way. Click here for hotels in San Juan's Condado neighborhood.
From Miramar just take the M3 or T5 bus and get off by the big blue church just past the Metro Theater (the Plaza is one long block on any of the streets across from the church). Click here for small hotels in San Juan's Miramar neighborhood.
If you're staying in Ocean Park or Isla Verde – check with your hotel for the best way to reach ‘La Placita'.
