Santurce's famous market – La Placita – is known as the hub of San Juan's hottest nightlife scenes. Especially good on Thursday and Friday nights, the historic market plaza and its surrounding streets host what becomes a veritable street party: people meeting up, drinking, eating and, as soon as the salsa band warms up, dancing until the wee hours.
