If you're into seeing the architecture and art of old world Catholic churches (there are 3) or Coach outlet, Dooney outlet, Tommy Bahama, Guess, Sunglass Hut, Tommy Bahama, then this is a must-do. It's not off the beaten path in Old San Juan. It's on the way to San Juan Gate and El Morro so if that interests you, use... More

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.

Bring your camera. Reserve at least one morning to see Old San Juan. There's a lot of history in this old city.

Our favorite Mexican restaurant, El Parnaso, is located on this street as well- and allows us to sit outside with a view of the chapel and... More

Love the cobblestone streets and the old buildings! If you are a bird lover, search out the area to feed the pigeons, you will be amazed at how many there are!

We enjoyed everything about this area, and were thrilled to have time to stroll through the narrow passageways and check out all the stores and little boutiques. (Although we did not have time to go into the church.) I highly recommend that you also pass by the stalls and booths of the local vendors as you walk through, as they... More

I attended Mass at the cathedral of San Juan Bautista. This cathedral was beautiful. It is a very old cathedral and it has so much history. I loved it, the mass was in Spanish.
