The Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastian are something
you must see and feel . The vibe of Old San Juan ,sounds
and sights are so inspiring. This year was the 38th
anniversary of the fiestas.The world renounced artist
and "hijo de Borinquen" Ricky Martin performed
and the fiestas were dedicated to the astro Puertorriqueño.
Friday the Orquesta de Willie Rosario,Plenealo, Sonora
Ponceña y la Banda de la Policia Municipal delighted
the crowds.If you haven't been to the fiestas start
planning for next January it's something you must experience.
Of course their were artesanos and activities for the
kids too. The fiestas are from Thursday to Sunday and
a fun event for all ages.
Guavate " wow " "La Ruta del Lechon"
y "la capital del colesterol" as the locals
would say. You have to enjoy the savory lechon, cuajito,
pasteles,morcillas, is your mouth watering? We stopped
by a great restaurant called "El Guvateño"
la casa del arroz saltarin y los egg rolls de lechon.
We were greeted by is chefs and owners Pedro Figueroa
and Ricardo Cestero. The food is excellent, beautiful
view and the live music playing in the background, oh
and a family atmosphere even your abuela would enjoy.
Thanks to all the staff for being so great.
