Central America, Caribbean, Puerto Rico
 

Location Information:

 

Isla Verde is a district of Carolina, Puerto Rico. It is bordered to the north by the Atlantic Ocean, to the west by the San Juan area of El Condado, to the south by Santurce (also a San Juan area) and to the east by downtown Carolina. Isla Verde has been, for decades, a main touristic area in Puerto Rico, hosting various hotels, casinos and discotheques.

Isla Verde is also the name of the tiny island some 400 meters north of Punta Medio, with a size of just 2,518 m² (0.6 acres). It is the island that gave name to the district. The island falls within Cangrejo Arriba barrio of Carolina. The district of Isla Verde is in fact the coastal area of Cangrejo Arriba.

Isla Verde has very posh areas but is not too far from the Island's largest public housing project, Luis Llorens Torres, which is actually within San Juan. Despite its closeness to this area, Isla Verde is very safe thanks to the heavy police presence in the area, in fact Carolina's autonomous police department has a police station in the area. Isla Verde is also home to an important Cuban exile community centered around Casa Cuba (Puerto Rico's main Cuban social club) and Rest. El Metropol.

Most of Isla Verde, however, is filled with restaurants, hotels and mansions. Many celebrities have lived in Isla Verde's posh areas, including some former Menudos, among them is Robi Rosa. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, world boxing champion Wilfredo Gómez owned a discothèque (which was shaped like a Flying saucer) in the area, and Samuel Serrano also owned businesses there.
The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, which many people mistakenly think is situated in San Juan, is actually located at the Isla Verde area, which, as aforementioned, belongs to the city of Carolina.
