San Juan Beach

While visiting San Juan for the Bilingual Therapies Symposium, make sure you explore area attractions outside of the La Concha Resort and discover the cultural and exciting atmosphere the city has to offer.  The La Concha Resort is perfectly located near all the historic, dining, and nightlife hot spots in the city. It’s also only steps away from iconic Condado beach.

San Juan is known as the “epicenter” of culture, music, food, and traditions. There’s always a reason to celebrate in this city, so you’ll truly feel like you’re escaping from reality. Visitors from across the island love to venture to San Juan to experience the welcoming culture and exciting events. Between the excellent cuisine, festive live music, and constant entertainment, you’ll never run out of things to enjoy.

Stroll along the streets of Old San Juan, surrounded by a vibrant, yet relaxed atmosphere of beautiful colonial homes. Book a walking tour or explore it on your own!

Relax on the beach with plenty of great restaurants and entertainment nearby, or take a leisurely walk or quick taxi to other nearby beaches, like Escambron Beach, Playa Peña, Ocean Park Beach, or Isla Verde Beach to soak up the sun.

Live it up when the sun sets from your choice of over 200 entertainment options, including casinos, nightclubs, lounges, concerts, or cultural events. Hot spots are in Condado, Ocean Park, or Isla Verde. Ashford Avenue, where the Symposium resort is located, is conveniently where most of the popular nightlife is located! Other hot spots include South Fortaleza Street (SoFo), Calle San Sebastian, Calle del Cristo, and Paseo de la Princesa.  

Get excited for an interesting shopping experience, as you’ll find some of the most exquisite jewelry, clothing, and art that you’ll surely treasure for a lifetime! Many shops are located right on Ashford Ave, but for extensive shopping options, head to the Plaza Las Americas, which is the largest mall in the Caribbean.

Luckily, San Juan is known as a “foodies’ destination,” housing some of the most talented chefs in the world, offering cuisines to fit every preference and budget. Remember that Puerto Rico is where the Piña Colada was born, so get ready to have some of the tastiest island drinks you’ve ever tried – whether you prefer virgin or not! For the serious foodies or connoisseurs, take on a food, rum, or coffee tour to make your experience educational and tasty. Head here to check out some of the top dining options in the area.
