Ponce, Puerto Rico

Ponce is the second largest city in Puerto Rico and it is located in the southern coast. It was established in 1692 by Juan Ponce de León’s great-grandson – Juan Ponce de León y Loayza.

The city’s architecture, neoclassical colonial, is very different from Old San Juan architecture, spanish colonial. It is considered one of the most elegant cities on the Island. Its people are very proud of their traditions, customs, and the beauty of the city. This is the reason why it is known as La Perla Del Sur, The Pearl of the South, and/or La Ciudad Señorial, The Stately City.

Ponce is also famous for many other things; and there is one that has transcended over the centuries. It is the birthplace to Puerto Rico’s famous rum industry and especially to Don Q rum. Don Q is Puerto Rico’s best known rum and it is internationally recognized by its constant exceptional quality!
