This is a beautiful street in a gorgeous old town. Old San Juan is the place to be! I plan on returning here!

We ate at two restaurants on this street as well as did some window shopping. Nice area to browse or shop.

Main street for shopping in old San Juan. You could buy linen outfits, dresses and wood souvenirs created by island artisans. Eat in Barachina where the pina colada was first made. walk down the and finish the night in a cigar lounge.

It's a main street that can get backed up with traffic but there are tons of places to shop. We stayed at the Casa Blanca Hotel and it was walking distance to everything. You can't really get lost but it's nice if you do!

Fortaleza is the main shopping street in Old San Juan. It is about a block from the cruise ship piers and has most of the usual jewelry stores in addition to art galleries and tourist trinket shops. There are also a wide variety or restaurants...More

Long and narrow street in Old San Juan. Lot's of bars, souvenir shops, and restaurants. At the end is the governor's residence. Always crowded. Beware of the people trying to navigate such a narrow street in their cars.

Yes, we were there on a Friday morning and afternoon and everything was open, clean, safe and if you weren't looking for hurricane damage, you would've walked right past it.The tourist areas are just fine.

If I'm not too late, I found the best deal for the money with great food and service was Tijuana's, at Calle Marina which is in Old San Juan along the water.
