Some of the shops are outrageously priced, taking advantage of the fact that its a tourist area, but you'll find very unique items here. The Coach factory store carries colorful bags and a lot of animal print bags at the moment (August 2015). They are currently having 50-70% off. Its worth walking around and seeing what shops your interested in,... More

A very pretty street which is s great introduction to Old San Juan. From there, you have easy access to all the area of the colonial city. It is full of shops, restaurants, beautiful historic and colorful houses, cobbled streets. It is also the location of one of my favorite hotel in Puerto Rico, El Covento!

Neat place to visit when strolling around Old San Juan, cobble stone streets are the perfect setting for outstanding photos. Street cafes are common in the area as well.

If you have a day to spend in old San Juan, I recommend walking Calle del Cristo. This street is unique, filled with activities, lined up with restaurants, and places to visit to sample Old San Juan. It is very popular among out of town and local visitors. There are gift shops and high end product stores if you care... More

This cobble-stoned street is unique in the World. You will fin great restaurants there or nearby, walk past an old convent, now converted to a first rate hotel, see the second oldest church in the Hemisphere at the top and a small chapel, next to a children's park at the bottom. Don´t miss it.

The history is so rich here and this place was so crowded when we drove around on our first day. We visited it as part of our Flavors of San Juan Tour and I was "moved" with the history and the spiritual feeling you get from just being here. You have to just go!

This is just basically one of the streets in Old San Juan with some shops and restaurants. I'm surprised it has its own breakdown honestly. We went into a few of the stores, but it wasn't anything spectacular by any means.
