Our favorite souvenirs from Puerto Rico came from this shop; they offer authentic, handmade, original items not found elsewhere. Touristy shops are abundant, but true local, authentic items are hard to come-by in Old San Juan, and this shop has them. Prices are reasonable and the items are quite varied, there will be something here for almost anyone. My particular... More

Art, jewelry, coffee, packaged cookies, and alcohol-this store has so much and it is beautifully presented. It would be easy to find souvenirs for gifts or to remember Puerto Rico. My teens love art and really enjoyed spending time in this store.

All the items at the Puerto Rican Art & Crafts store are made locally, are high quality, and are varying price points. You are bound to find the perfect souvenir to take home. They sell jewelry, rum, paintings, food items (such as rum cake, sauces, candies), unique magnets, and much more.

Tony owns the shop and he's great. He can tell you all about the art, where it came from, what it means, etc. We bought some Santos and he helped us pick out the right ones--we were looking for the saint of animals, the saint of travelers, and to even it out, he suggested the saint of people who are...

I was sent to this shop by my guesthouse host when I told her we were looking for authentic Santos (wooden statues of the saints with a background of religious worship that have been taken on by local artisans in modern days) and she did not lead us wrong. We ended up buying two santos for ourselves, one for a... More

I make a point to visit art co-ops and stops like this when visiting a city, and PR A & C did not disappoint. I was delighted by all the mediums that were available, and the quality of the work. I gravitated to the ceramics and jewelry on this trip, and I picked up several small pieces, including a beautiful... More

I went to this store after reading about shopping in Puerto Rico on the internet. It does not disappoint! It is full of treasures from local artists, something for everyone.

My wife and I have visited the Puerto Rican Arts & Crafts store the past two years that we visited Old San Juan. Both times we have found unique, high quality "souvenirs" that reflect the heritage and beauty of this historic city. This year when we visited O.S.J. we were joined by my wife's brother Michael and his wife Barbara.... More
