This historic town is one of the largest cities in the island of Puerto Rico. It has four shopping malls and countless supermarkets. Local market and businesses are also available all throughout the town. In addition, it has many public and private schools for parents to choose from. Night life fun has diminished over the years as the local hot spots have left the town over the years however, there is still a lot to do. With two big movie theaters, a bowling alley, countless restaurants and fast food places to choose from, there is always something entertaining to do. Furthermore, this town offers lovely beaches, rivers and awesome swimming pool fun to enjoy, especially during the summer.

A like Ponce for many reason because is like the phrase of us that is "Ponce is Ponce and the others are parking!", for example we have allout of historic in the country. In this days are structure that are in perfect condition also work great, but unfortunately in Ponce also have structure important and history that are in danger. For example the Light house of Cardona is located in the Island of Cardona in Ponce, the structure is danger and it could colaps. This could be a problem on the future, I will like a preservated and conserveted the structure of the light house of Cardona doing anastylosis and other things.
I was born and raised In Ponce, I had left for about 6 to 7 years between college studies and work opportunities after graduating. I returned and have been living in the city for the past 2 years now. I still love it, it has a little bit of everything the only thing I miss I would say the nightlife and availability that San Juan the capital has to offer or the tranquility and beaches from Aguadilla but it is safer here than San Juan and there's more availability than Aguadilla.
