Though around a century old, not much has changed in La Placita. The market opens in the wee hours of the morning, and the freshest fruits, vegetables, fish and meat are up for grabs. You will get good island food at any of the eateries here. One of the oldest mom-and-pop eateries is El Popular , a local favorite, as is Coco de Luis. Also located close by are the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Puertorriqueño and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico . A bustling market during the day and a party venue at night, La Placita comes alive with live music as the 'hip' take to the streets. Also, the entire area is Wi-Fi enabled.
