So what does Rio Piedras offer?
For starters, the area is home to the University of Puerto Rico, which has an amazing museum of history, anthropology & art. Among the collection of over 30,000 pieces is one of Puerto Rico's most famous works of art - Francisco Oller’s El Velorio ("The Wake") - and the famous Grito de Lares flag, a historic symbol of Puerto Rican independence.
The University also owns the spectacular Botanical Gardens, a 300- acre park with a tremendous diversity of local and exotic flora composed into numerous themed gardens. It is a breathtaking sanctuary that offers visitors a unique observation of the natural world.
The campus itself is worth a stroll, with its beautiful clock tower and blends of architecture. And it’s entirely too easy to spend the day popping in and out of the lovely shops and bookstores along the Avenue Ponce de Lyon.
Rio Piedras is known for being an affordable area with exclusive residential subdivisions that cater to both local families and expats alike.
