Here you will find the pretty Plazuela Las Monjas and a very pretty cobblestone street than runs down to the San Juan Gate. Do your shopping but make sure to save time... More

Take a leisurely stroll back in time! Pass the day meandering in and out of the shops and boutiques while nibbling on a coco helado...a must!

Must admit, would've preferred to visit here prior to El Morro. El Morro is way too impressive. This site is very interesting, views are great, but doesn't hold a candle to the views and surrounding area of El Morro. If visiting, visit here first, then El Morro.

Many national brand stores - Outlet theme but still some high end Jewelers like Harry Winston on Cristo Street. By far the best location in Old San Juan with a good variety of merchandise and lots of shoppers off the cruise ships and local hotels.
