All reviews old san juan lots of shops marmalade arts and crafts great shopping pina colada colorful buildings nice walk puerto rico old city jewelry barrachina stroll governors architecture cruise fort
The busiest street (but not too busy) and with a great display of the old Spanish architecture. Cobblestone street. Very similar to Calle San Francisco but perhaps a little busier. There's a Marshalls here, the only big Department Store I saw and a fairly large...More
I love San Juan but on my last visit I wasn't able to get to "umbrella street", so it was a must see this time. It was worth the wait! Only takes a second to stop by and take a few pictures and if you...More

This Street was beautifully decorated with Umbrellas of all colors. The shops were quaint and welcoming. Some of them were expensive. Lots of good restaurants to get a bite from. This street gives you the flavor of Old San Juan.
By luck, we had booked two different hotels on this street, at the beginning and end of our vacation, so we had a chance to explore it. There are a lot of great shops along the street, not to mention restaurants and bars. Plus the...More

Have time for only one meal in Old San Juan--where?! (10 Replies)
My husband and I are flying into SJU and land at noon. We then have a 2:45 flight to Vieques from Isla Grande aiport. We aren't checking any bags, so am hoping that we will have enough time to hop a cab to Old San Juan for lunch before our Vieques flight. I've heard great things about South Fortaleza Street and it sounds like we'll get to see a tiny bit of OSJ if we are in that area. Does anyone have advice for which restaurant on SoFo offers a great meal/atmosphere/view? I appreciate your...More

Hi MRB, I don't think you really have enough time to go to Old San Juan. Isla Verde perhaps.
Need help planning our 5 day PR trip (11 Replies)
We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids (6 & 8 years old boys), traveling to San Juan PR in late November. I need help planning the trip. We plan to rent a car. 1. We would like to stay centrally. Will kids be able to play in the beach water in November? If yes, we would want access to beach but would also want to drive to other places of interest. Where should we stay? Is Ocean park beach area a good place to stay? 2. Can someone help us plan our days? So far it seems I have the...More

Ocean Park might not be the best beach for young children. It was beautiful, clean and never crowded when I was there. However there was a bit of a current and waves that in my opinion would make it difficult for children to swim safely.
