Guide to los Kioskos de Luquillo

Social

Off the route number 3 headed towards the East of Puerto Rico on your left, you will find a local treasure!

Next to the Luquillo beach, you can take your pick of over 60 colorful humble kiosks offering everything from authentic Puerto Rican cuisine to souvenir shops and even a tattoo parlor! You can find everything you need here to check off all the important stuff from your bucket list, like choosing your own lobster.

Spending the day at the beach while coming in and out of kiosks is one of the best things to do in the East of PR. Wait until sunset to go get dinner at a rooftop (like Agave) to enjoy the best views of the beautiful pink and purple skies.

There are a couple of carts across the kiosks in the parking lot towards the route #3 which offer a few delights like Frutti World (in front of #54) where you can create your own giant smoothies, or get shish-kebabs which are better known as ‘pinchos’ at El Rey del Pincho in front of #56. And if you’re not put off by the idea of eating freshly caught oysters from a van, then check out the joint in front of #42 and ask for the special sauce.
