Welcome To La Perla Puerto Rico

  1. My wife and I just Returned from PR. Our first two nights were in La Perla. We did not feel unsafe at all, maybe because we didn’t know about the reputation before we got there. Anyhow, we stayed at a “cozy” Airbnb, and walked through old San Juan and enjoyed our star very much and had a beautiful view of the ocean from our bedroom. We will be returning on a yearly basis.

  2. Seems like a really cool place! I’ve been to VSJ many time but have always wondered how you get to La Perla! I love being in the real culture of places I visit and feel this would be an adventure. Your photos are beautiful and make me really want to go there!! Im considering moving to PR within a couple of years so knowing all of the neighborhoods will be part of my adventure!

  3. Last week i walked through la perla at night. I am 6 foot 200 pounds of iowa tough farmer and what i encountered there should scare anybody. Drug dealers with shoeboxes full of dope approached us and when i said no thank you they cursed me and began following us brandishing knives. That place needs a fuel tanker dropped over the edge and ignited and then bulldozed and turned into a park. Worst place ive ever seen in 40 years of life. Sorry. La perla is gross

    1. Sorry, you had a bad encounter in La Perla PR. First and foremost it really isn’t a tourist destination or attraction it is a residential neighborhood. Viejo San Juan, is the tourist spot. Everyone knows if you are a tourist and are in La Perla you’re there for one reason only…..to try to score drugs down there. They know who lives in their community and who doesn’t; they know a rental car when they see one. I’m not implying anything but maybe you should have said what you went there for. Not sure if you really paid attention to my article but the community doesn’t like being viewed as objects under a microscope. But as far as your nasty comment about La Perla if you have nothing nice to say please keep your opinions to yourself.
