A sunbathed seaside culture infuses La Barceloneta from beginning to end. By day, bikes and skateboards glide down the boardwalk that lines the neighborhood's world-class beaches. By night, fresh seafood restaurants and casual bars keep the noise level at a constant hum. What La Barceloneta lacks in contemplative serenity, it makes up for with its old-world charm and the affability of families who have lived along its winding sidestreets for generations.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
