They mostly sell delicious “fritters”, like what we call “bacalaitos”, or fried cod fish. There are also “empanadillas”, which are basically fried meat or cheese filled turnovers. Apart from the food, the boardwalk is a great place to relax and take a light stroll. At one end of the boardwalk there is a lookout tower, giving an elevated view of La Guancha. You can see many big fish. These are not the prettiest, and do something really weird with their mouths once in a while. Just outside of the boardwalk there are fun playgrounds for kids and a cool arcade. Ponce’s beach is very near the boardwalk, you can even walk to it.
