If you are looking for something more classic stateside then this is a good place they have many chain restaurants including the cheesecake factory. A nice place to do some shopping its very large but somewhat difficult to navigate. Its a short $17 cab ride from most of the hotels.

This mall is large with 3 levels and lots of very different stores, including Macy's, Penny's, and Sears. A lot of high end stores. It is near the center of San Juan; a $20/each way cab ride from Isla Verde. Several nice restaurants and a great Cheesecake Factory.

As always, geeks like me can find stuff that you can't find in other shopping centers in Puerto Rico like Star... More

We couldn't find my husbands flip flops to pack, so this mall has recommended to us. We found some at PacSun! This mall is three stories! And decorated for Christmas! On Christmas Eve "snow" was dropped from the third floor for a white Christmas in San Juan. It's a typical American mall with all the same stores. I wouldn't waste... More

This is a nice mall but we were surprised at how Americanized it was... all the stores were exactly the same chains you'd see in the USA. I was kind of hoping there would be more local Puerto Rican stores. (although there was one section tucked way in the back on the third floor that sold local Puerto Rican arts... More
