This is probably the best mall in PR, it has alot of stores and theres always something to buy. However even though they have massive parkin area, it is always full. If you go during prime hours be prepare to either pay for valet or just drive around till you find one. I usually go to the theather if theres... More

Largest mall in PR. Lots of stores typical of malls in mainland U.S. There is a difference because of the inflection of the culture of P.R. In other words, there is a Puerto Rican spin on most things in the mall. Just take in the food court. Plus there are active artisan displays in certain areas of the mall. The... More

Very big selection in Macy's. Was extremely impressed. Have been to a lot of large malls but this one was up the list. Parking anywhere in San Juan shopping centers seems to be an issue.

This is a fairly big mall with the major department stores. It's nice clean and a good place to hang out on a rainy day. There's a movie theater at one end. My wife made me buy shirts at Macy's. I know I put them in the suit case.

We love to go to this mall when in San Juan. They have a Naturalizer shoe store, which is a hard to find store in Florida (unless it's an outlet). I love that there are so many shops to chose from and you can find just about anything that you're looking for. I have to agree with the previous reviewer.... More

The mall is really huge, and the first trip there we didn't make it around to see all the stores (yes, it took a second trip!). What makes this mall different than the ones you will find in the states is it is NOT just national chains. Yes, they have all the great national chains, both high-end and bargain stores,... More

This is a huge Mall as compared to the others in the Caribbean. Lots of stores, restaurants and an ideal place at the Food Courts to enjoy a delicious meal. We did this as many times as we visited over the years. Love the Water Fountain.

This place is huge!!! We didn't even have time to see it all. There's a few restaurants inside besides the food court. I think pretty much anything you need you will find in this mall.

This is one LARGE mall. They have plenty of the anchor store you would expect from the states. They have many many specialty stores for all your wants and needs. There are plenty of restaurants and a large food court. There is also a movie cinema if you want to catch a flick while there.
