Ponce is both a city and a municipality in the southern part of Puerto Rico. Kick off your visit on the 8th (Fri): see the interesting displays at El Museo Castillo Serralles, then explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte de Ponce, and then take a leisurely stroll along La Guancha. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Parque de Bombas, then contemplate the long history of Casa Wiechers-Villaronga, and then take a stroll through San German.
