The best jelly rolls sort of dessert, in Spanish "Brazo Gitano" in an incredible assortment of flavors including mango, guava, pineapple and much more. They prepare other treats. My favorite, if you are lucky enough to catch some, are called "Yemitas". It is a soft vanilla cake covered with a sweet smelling icing made with egg yolks. They also serve daily lunch and is a good place to buy Puerto Rican crafts and edibles, including sangría made in Puerto Rico. Our town's famous sangría is Fido.

This is a Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine that has served the community for many years. Although in the city the atmosphere is countryside, quiet old and well kept. The food variety is exquisite to the taste.

The professionals as well as the college students who look for an sports bar environment love this place. However the food and deserts are not to be forgotten and their menu is very good! They usually have lunch plates that are priced lower.

Unique restaurant with an eclectic selection, perfectly designed plates and awesome flavors. Next to the coast, you may want to seat outside or inside. The place has a futuristic architecture. They serve lunch, dinner, and appetizers "Tapas, or small plates" that some people even prefer so as to taste a larger variety of food. This is a place to go with no rush.

With specialties in all sorts of seafood, the place has always been committed to authenticity and good service. It's rustic, has some wood work and a few of the tables are next to the crystal windows overlooking the ocean. A worthy experience!

Not a traditional market, but they are in a small wooden shop off the street to prepare "frapes" made of fresh fruit. Sometimes people make a line to wait for theirs.

Kaytie is a cake's cheff and has a coffee shop of prime quality, a very cute place to spend an hour chatting. You may bring with you a small cake or just taste a piece at the shop. I highly recommend this place.

I have lately liked the appetizers selection at Applebee's plus they compete well with Chili's on the desserts category. You may enjoy the salads and the freshly cooked or roasted foods.

I love Mexican food and for those like me this place offers flavors that are close to authentic. With an over-the-counter ordering style, the prices are much cheaper, partly because they have a large clientele of students and are located right across from the University of Puerto Rico. They have plasma tv's to watch while you wait and eat. You can request the food to go or sit at a table.

The restaurant is an upgraded concept of the typical "casa jíbara", the countryside Puerto Rican humble people little house. Beautifully kept and a place to relax. The food is well designed and cooked to perfection. It has a traditional and creative Puerto Rican selection which uses root foods such as "yuca" or cassava, "name" , a type of yam with a flatter, non sweet flavor, and "pana" or breadfruit. It offers an assortment of seafood, white meats and red meats. Hacienda Latina also has a pretty ample selection of liquors.

Flavors and more flavors of these light and creamy formulations. There you will find the flavors or Puerto Rican fruits, other international flavors and even some grains. Among my favorites are corn with ground cinnamon on top, coconut, guava, guanabana (soursop), and passion fruit. Sometimes its difficult not to ask for the plain vanilla or the chocolate one. The map does not show the shops. They have two, both located around Mayagüez Plaza, just ask for the Helados Chinos, this is they way that everyone calls them.

Drinks & Nightlife
It is a pretty well designed and appealing dancing stage with bar where you can have fun. The Fat Tuesday concept was born in Atlanta, Georgia. It has fun food items to complement the featured frozen specialty drinks. The best thing about this one is that its guarded at all times. Minors are not allowed. Ours is four minutes away from the Studio, across from the avenue.

Parks & Nature
The park was prepared along with other installations and the remodeling of the baseball stadium, the Isidoro García, to receive the multitude of the Mayagüez 2010 Central American Sport Games. The park runs along the coast line and has different structures and equipment such as children's outdoor's gym area with slides and seesaw rocker, a skate board rink and others, but above all it is a beautiful trails project that attracts equally the serious athletes and the amateurs. As all parks are public and due to a particular housing project I recommend visiting it after the sunrise and before the dusk, preferably in company of someone else.

Dedicated to the "Próceres" or deceased famous community transformers born in the city of Mayagüez, the park is a peaceful green space where people may walk, jog, chat with others or even celebrate under the built-in canopy.

This incredible agricultural project has been taking place for the past 100 years. It hosts an important collection of trees, shrubs and plants. The "park" can be visited and one needs to report to the reception of the main building. It's location is across from the Parque de los Próceres. I recommend calling first and coordinate a visit during morning hours as the rainfall tends to precipitate after noon time.
