Ponce

Ponce is both a city and a municipality in the southern part of Puerto Rico. Family-friendly places like Horseback Riding Tours and La Guancha will thrill your kids. Change things up with a short trip to Cana Gorda Beach in Playa de Guanica (about 38 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Museo de Arte de Ponce, tee off at Costa Caribe Golf & Country Club, and don't miss a visit to Letras de Ponce.

Las Vegas, USA to Ponce is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Las Vegas to Ponce. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Las Vegas in April since evenings lows in Ponce dip to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to drive to San Juan.
