Kayak Equipment Rental at The Condado Lagoon

Our experience is really special because of the ecosystem of the lagoon. It is very common to come across manatees that feed on seagrass and that live in harmony with so many other marine species that live there. The lagoon is an important natural reserve that is protected for study and conservation as it is part of the San Juan Bay estuary. It also has a community of natural and artificial reefs that make the experience even richer. The flora, the mangroves, the landscape and how the species live in their natural ecosystem is an experience added to the sport to be performed in the lagoon. These conservation efforts seek to educate and increase knowledge for their conservation and the enjoyment of these beauties. The best thing is that it is centrally located at the entrance to San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico and the historic center that is the largest tourist attraction on the island.

We were lucky enough to visit this art museum on their monthly free day...but would have gladly paid. Although still recovering from the hurricanes the galleries are thoughtfully laid out and very interesting. And the gift and coffee shops were so good they warranted visits on three separate occasions.

Very interesting building with huge courtyard and museum on the second floor. When we visited, only three of the museum exhibits were open; one showed modern art, one old San Juan history and I don't remember what was in the third. At the plaza level, there are restaurants surrounding the plaza. The day we visited, there was also a huge craft fair and live music going on down in the plaza area. One of the funnest activities we did during our week in Old San Juan.

In about one hour we toured four of the eight galleries, from African civilizations, to European conquest of the Americas, slavery, Spain and the United States' roles in Puerto Rico, and independence. If you do not read Spanish, know that much of this is not covered in English; there should be recorded tours for rent, though we did not ask since we are bilingual. The history is extremely well presented and the artifacts are striking. The museum also has short-term rotating shows of modern art that we did not visit.

Two of the eight exhibit bays were closed in February 2020 due to Hurricane Maria damage. Six were open. A few detailed the history of Puerto Rico. A few displayed art from Caribbean and South American artists, a new genre for me. We went through in 90 minutes. Some exhibits, not all, provided displays in English Serious coffee shop in the courtyard near the museum.
