all the stores are fun to see. some are boutiques but they are all worth going into. the shop keepers are friendly and welcome all. during your walk there are places to eat or just have some coffee. the square has many vendors selling local wares.

Must see--go to Supwe Max for cheap liquor, sundries, coffee, candy, chips, cookies, etc.... Restaurants Barrachina, Punta de Vista, Marmalade.....good Fresh juice bar at corner of large public square on Calle Cruz--a street that connects Fortaleza to San Francisco Be careful of some souvenir ships that have a no return--no exchange policy. Ask before you buy!

We happned to be visiting while there was a festival going on, so in addition to the great shops, the streets were alive with music, street vendors and bars! Highly Recommend at nighttime.

This is a street you can go and take a photo with your family. For me is no better souvenir like memories and photos from every place you go.

This street is a very lively and fun street in Puerto Rico. At night, there were many places to eat and/or have drinks. The architecture is beautiful and very colorful. Brings life to this little night life oasis.
