Surfing and Whale Watching at Rincon
Ponce’s historic past can be explored through its many museums and its
city center with the beautiful 17th century architecture which includes
open plazas, ideal for relaxing and people-watching. Buildings worthy
of particular note around the city center are the old Fire Station, the City
Hall and although built much more recently, the Catedral Nuestra Señora
de la Guadalupe.
Rincon became a surfing Mecca after the 1968 World Surfing Championships and is today known
as either Surfing Town or Little Malibu. Although the town became popular due to surfing which
is still a popular activity there, today it is perhaps getting better known as the starting point for
whale watching excursions.
