While Old San Juan is full of cobblestone streets, lined with colorful buildings, our favorite was Calle del Cristo as it exemplified these characteristics and conveniently takes one by a high concentration of Old San Juan’s best sights. To get to Calle del Cristo from the cruise ship docks or one of the many parking lots in the area, head... More

Watch your step as you climb this street, but note that there are some shops and small art galleries for a quick browse and a rest. The Hotel El Convento is also on this street and is an excellent place to get a drink or grab a bite. While it's a decent walk, you can do it if your cruise... More

We are in a typlical Sixteen Century Street. At the end of the street lies the first catholic capilla, Capilla del Cristo in the walled city. The roads are still as they made them 500 yrs ago. WOW

Lots of variety - used to have some fabulous outlet stores, but they have all left except for Coach and Guess. Miss Dooney & Burke and the Speedo stores. Also used to be a good store for Merrells, but it is gone too. Hope the Business Bureau is courting some new outlet retailers.

Cute street. You walk along cobblestones which are original to the city. Nice shops and feels cleaner than Fortaleza. Beautiful church towards the top.

Perfect location to see the most typical homes and iconic architecture of the Old San Juan area. You can find nice restaurants and specialty shops, so your experience is complete. Don't miss walking all the way to the end where you find the Cristo Chapel right next to the Pigeon Park…great place for kids

My wife and I recently visited Old San Juan for the second time and found as many fun and enjoyable things to see and do as our first visit. Maybe even more. The Calle del Cristo is another beautiful street that reflects the history, heritage, and culture of this beautiful city. There are many shops, restaurants, hotels, and historic buildings... More
