Planning a trip to San Juan in Puerto Rico soon?
This little island territory certainly has a lot to offer. Beautiful and relaxing beaches, breathtaking UNESCO heritage historical sites, and Piña Coladas (they originated here) are just a few things you’ll enjoy when you’re here.
But the real prize that San Juan has to offer you are the ladies. Trust me; I’ve been here more than enough times to know.
To help you score a date during your Puerto Rican travels, I’m here to do two things:
- tell you exactly where to meet beautiful girls in San Juan
- give you my top tips for dating Puerto Rican women
Date San Juan Girls During the Day
With a population of nearly 400,000 people, San Juan is the largest city in Puerto Rico. It’s the capital of the Commonwealth as well and is notable for having some of the oldest cities in the United States (Puerto Rico is officially a U.S. territory).
San Juan is the place to go in Puerto Rico if you want to meet lots of beautiful girls! That’s because the city is the most densely populated area on the island.
My advice is to go to San Juan first and spend a few days there before heading inland or working your way around the coast.
Shopping malls provide an excellent opportunity to spend your time for two reasons.
First, you can walk around and check out the cafes, shops, and restaurants to absorb Puerto Rican culture.
Secondly, you can meet girls while they’re going about their day. Most are either shopping with friends or taking a break from work, so you can stop them for a quick two-to-three-minute chat to try and get their phone number.
I recommend you check out:
- The Mall of San Juan
- Plaza Del Sol
- Plaza Rio Hondo
- San Patricio Plaza
Parks and outdoor areas
If you’d rather spend your time in nature (or on the beach), I highly recommend going to Ocean Park Beach. Girls will spend time on the beach with any chance they have, and you can easily get a conversation going by asking what she’s up to or if she’s a local or a tourist like you.
Landmarks and tourist attractions
San Juan has hundreds of years of history that you’ll see when you visit. Check out some of the historical sites alone, and you can easily talk to girls you see by asking what they know about the sites or if it’s their first time visiting.
Walk around the streets of Old San Juan, which showcases Spanish colonial architecture and fortes and is the oldest city under the American flag.
In Old San Juan, you can explore the Museo de las Americas, which explores the colonization, artwork, and the people of Puerto Rico.
Finally, you can also check out El Morro, a fort currently protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built beginning in the early 1500s and took 250 years to complete.
Where to Meet San Juan Girls at Night
There are plenty of opportunities to approach Puerto Rican girls in San Juan during the day. But it’s at night that this place comes alive!
The primary neighborhood that most tourists stay in in San Juan is called the Old San Juan district. This area also has some of the best nightlife in the city and comes packed with bars, restaurants, and clubs. All should be within walking distance of your hotel, hostel, or Airbnb.
Another popular party spot is in the district surrounding the University of Puerto Rico. Many college girls head out to party on Friday or Saturday night, so don’t pass up the opportunity.
Also, if you head over to the eastern side of the city, you’ll find areas like:
- Isla Verde
Each of these places has lots of bars and clubs and will come alive at night as well.
All in all, the top bars and clubs that I recommend in San Juan are:
- Club Brava
- Club Kronos
- El Boricua
- La Respuesta
- Patrick’s Irish Bar
A lot of girls in Puerto Rico will go to the bars and clubs in groups. Be prepared to approach the group as a whole by asking a question or making a general comment, and then narrow the conversation to her by asking her questions specific to her.
Dating San Juan Girls Online
Hopefully, you can get a date in San Juan set up before you even arrive. I advise that you get involved on the dating apps and sites about two weeks before you get there. Start conversations with multiple women at a time and ideally get a date or two set up before you’ve even flown in.
The best site for meeting San Juan girls online is AmoLatina.com. It is arguably the top dating site in Puerto Rico because it has the most users and girls interested in visiting foreign men. What’s more, the girls here aren’t as flaky as they often can be on Tinder.
Speaking of Tinder, it’s a solid choice as well, just because of its large user pool. But the girls on Tinder can be notoriously flaky or otherwise more interested in getting laid versus serious dating like on AmoLatina.com.
San Juan Dating Guide
Nice places to hang out with your date
Honestly, the best place to take out a girl in San Juan is Ocean Park. You can go for a stroll along the park or relax out on the beach before swimming out in the ocean. You can’t beat either one. Another idea is to check out the Luis A. Ferre Performing Arts Center.
Good restaurants and bars to take your date to
After spending a day with her outside or on the beach, take her out for some nice food and wine.
Stick to areas in Old San Juan or Condado for eating. Some of my favorite restaurants in San Juan include:
- Bistro de Paris
- El Bar Bero
- Jungle Bird
- Tierra del Fuego
Final Tips for Picking Up a San Juan Woman
Here are my final tips for picking up and dating Puerto Rican women in San Juan:
Puerto Rican women always appreciate a gentleman who is well dressed and groomed. You don’t have to wear a suit everywhere you go, but don’t dress like any other male tourist either. A cotton button-down shirt or polo with shorts and stylish sunglasses should attract her eye.
Don’t Push For Sex
Puerto Rican women can be put off if you push too aggressively for sex. Be romantic with her while respecting her boundaries. When sex happens, let it happen naturally.
Don’t Hide Anything
Most men who visit Puerto Rico don’t know how well the women here can read men’s faces. If you’re hiding or holding back anything, she’ll suspect it based on your facial expressions or how you speak. Instead, be upfront, honest, and direct.
