Expected to see a church, but there is only a small cross on the roof; we couldn't get inside as it was locked.

Every kid in Puerto Rico that has visited Old San Juan most probably has walked the Calle del Cristo. In just one street you can find a variety of stores, restaurants, churches, even a hotel.

The shops are fantastic. We visited Coach and Dooney & Bourke stores for great deals on handbags. Afterwards we sat at a little sidewalk cafe called Marilyn and had cold drinks.
