If you're into live music, you'll be into Adoquin Jamming Nights, one of Puerto Rico's most popular music festivals. It gets underway every Friday in Old San Juan beginning at 7:00 p.m. and running until 11:00 p.m. Best of all, there is no charge to catch some of the best musicians you'll ever have the pleasure of hearing. Playing completely different styles of music, these first-rate local performers can be found in every corner of the historic city, which is paved with adoquine, a blue cobblestone. Hence, the name Adoquin Jamming Nights.
Covering seven square blocks, Old San Juan boasts many plazas where bands do their thing. And the settings couldn't be more inviting. In Plaza de San Jose, you'll find a statue of Ponce de Leon and a fair amount of impressive 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings that have been refurbished. Plaza de Armas is the main square of the city and its home to four 100-year-old statues that represent summer, winter, spring, and fall. Plaza del Quinto Centenario was created in 1992 to honor the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus discovering the New World. It features a 40-foot-tall black granite sculpture that celebrates America's roots. And Plaza de Hostos is where you'll encounter the word of artisans and stands selling traditional shaved ice soaked with tropical fruit syrup.
