Ocean Park is an upscale community for locals, but also a very budget-friendly option for travelers.  It is located within the district of Santurce in New San Juan, Puerto Rico, and just 10 minutes from the airport.  You’ll find gated condo communities, and very budget-friendly small inns, guest houses, apartment/house rentals, and restaurants.  The mile-long beach of Ocean Park has a more casual feel than the trendy Isla Verde and Condado beaches.  Along the beachfront and a few blocks back, you’ll find budget-friendly small inns and bed and breakfasts (see map below) great for those that want to enjoy the city with a more laid-back feel.

The trade winds over the winter months create the perfect conditions onshore for water sports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing.  Parque Barbosa (Barbosa Park) also known as “Ultimo Trolley” (The Last Tram) is directly across from Ocean Park beach on the far east side where you can jog, play tennis, take your kids to the playground, and have a good time being physically active with the family and friends.

Old San Juan is just a 15-minute taxi ride away and will cost you $10 – $15 dollars.  Most visitors spend at least a full day in Old San Juan.  If you wish to spend more time exploring the major attractionscasinos, and nearby towns around Puerto Rico, it may be more cost-efficient to rent a car.
