Humble spot, but a fun staging point from which to see Ponce. Daniel was attentive and responsive via text with advice and any concerns.

Daniel's cute little house was the perfect spot for me in Ponce. It was quite refreshing to get away from the tourist hotel strip malls, and deep into local Puerto Rican life. His neighborhood is so interesting, a bit run down in some places due to the hurricane, etc. but also…
