Elena's Puerto Rico Guide
Historic Ponce, the 'Pearl of the South'. The Art Museum filled with Fine Renaissance works of art has an excellent collection. Arrive towards the end of the day and stay near the central Plaza. You can walk the Plaza and nearby historic streets in the evening, a very picturesque and pleasant experience.
........ My personal collection of photos I have taken in my travels in India.

Included are 28 maps, and more than a hundred illustrations and photos. Web sites and e-mail addresses are listed as are fax numbers and 800 numbers. You can purchase online.
The Ponce Plaza Fountain. Around the plaza is a Catholic Church and a picturesque old firehouse brightly painted and in excellent shape. Unless you want to visit the art museum, you may want to continue to another destination after breakfast.
