Get to know Miramar

Located on the Condado Lagoon and the Bay of San Juan, Miramar is a lovely residential neighborhood with large historic homes on the city’s northern coast. Miramar is home to Isla Grande Airport and is just ten minutes away from the San Juan International Airport. Miramar also encompasses two marinas, making it easy to arrive home by air, sea, or land. The neighborhood was transformed from a sleepy locale to a must-visit destination by the arrival of the Puerto Rico Convention Center in 2005. In 2020, a 360,000-square-foot entertainment complex, El Distrito, opened next to the convention center. It includes the Coca-Cola Music Hall, a new music venue; the Aloft San Juan hotel; an adventure park; and a 50,00-square-foot central plaza surrounded by restaurants and 14,000-square feet of LED screens. Inspired by Times Square, El Distrito is expected to attract more than three million visitors annually when complete.

Living in San Juan

The vibrant capital of Puerto Rico, San Juan, is the island’s biggest and most populous city. It’s a place where the past, the present, and the future sit side by side, and where 500-year-old forts are just blocks away from a brand-new, high-tech plaza. This is a city that loves joy—San Juan residents are known for their welcoming spirit and readiness to celebrate life. Whether San Juan is hosting an impromptu dance party or one of the city’s famous festivals, there’s always a sense of fun in the air. Thanks to its location on the coast, San Juan has a laid-back, beach town vibe that manages to co-exist with the city’s status as an urban capital. In some ways, San Juan resembles other major American metropolises, with a downtown financial district, trendy hipster neighborhoods, comfortable suburbs, and tourist hotspots. But it’s San Juan’s mix of beaches, multiple cultures, and Boricua pride that make the city unique.
