THE LANDING is the hot spot right now. like i said earlier, check out www.detourpr.com for nightlife
nightlife in 'the island' is very different than in the metropolitan area a.k.a. San juan...there are no clubs. there are only local pubs/bars since they are all small towns. and usually there are only 1,2, maybe 3 bars in the town. needless to say everyone knows each other so it might be strange for a foreigner to walk in. this is not the case so much in the west coast because the college town of Mayaguez drives the coast. because there are so little bars, thats why one night you might party in rincon, then mayaguez the next, boqueron the next, etc. So, it doesn't matter what town you stay in in the west coast, you can easily jump off to any in a heartbeat(this is assuming of course that you rented a car at the airport). anyway, the them is pretty much local live band. you drink, socialize(every one has at least some knowledge of english so there is no reason to shy away in the corner all night), and dance to the live band. bands in puerto rico play a lot of reagge/ska, cover songs to the latest american pop hits. it definitely has latin flavor and nothing is ever too hard(medium-core rock i would call it).
Dress Code: dress code...always a fun category. beach, surfer style (whatever you call it). right now, guys wear loose jeans(not baggy, not tight) and tucked in, buttoned-down, short sleeve shirts often with flower patterns. quicksilver is a big brand in puerto rico. girls wear tight clothes. of course, there are extremes like in any society, but the majority is pretty standard.
