One of the main streets in Old Town

If your in Old Town, you will most likely find yourself on this street. So many places to eat and so many shops. A must on your tour.

We walked from the Fort through Old Town and discovered this incredible area of beautiful streets, chapels, bars and restaurants, and gift shops. There were rum tastings in some of the bars, food specials, and several activities including a skateboard competition. There are numerous places for outside dining in the shade, as well as fine dining in historical buildings. Our... More

This was an unexpected delight, the sights and sounds and the ability to wander around this wonderful old City was fun.

Walk along this street (southwards) and you will pass the El Convento Hotel, once a religious Convent built in 1646 and was inaugurated as the Monastery of Our Lady Carmen of San José in 1651. RDirectly across the street is the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista where the remains of Juan Ponce De Leon are interned. The Cathedral is one... More

A pleasant stroll from El Convento. Note the blue bricks on street. Outdoor dining on the street. Ends with a chapel -- usually open to public.

Great street, beautiful church and square, but the real shopping is on Fortaleza Street, not on Calle del Cristo as we'd been led to believe. Overpriced jewelry (Cartier and Chopard) and chain stores (Tommy Hilfiger, Coach) instead of local arts and crafts. The area in front of the church and down the side streets is the best reason to visit.

Take a taxi or walk from the cruise ship port in Old San Juan to this old street with lots of good shops/restaurants including Coach and Guess Outlet stores. Our favorite restaurant is La Cucina de Ivo with a great quiet courtyard and very good (and fairly expensive!) Italian Mediterranean food.

From the north end where the museums and plaza sit to the south end with it's chapel and pigeon park this street was charming with it's shops, historical buildings and restaurants. Spend some time exploring the side streets as well.

This is a great starting point, meeting point or central point to make note of while in Old San Juan. If coming in through the gate in the wall from the Paseo de la Princessa, this is the first main north and south street you come across. At it's southern end is Capilla del Cristo which I wasn't lucky enough... More
