There's a large selection of locally made masks, Christmas ornaments (yes, it's that time of year), clothing as well as more touristy items including Coqui (small frog) keychains and books. We got at least one of each of the above. My wife bought more here... More

This was probably one of the happiest stops on our trip. Trust me, there was plenty of happy all week long.

With so many things to see, we were able to browse... More

Lots of cute souvenirs and gifts. A little pricier than in San Juan, but a nice selection of everything from t-shirts to jewelry to decor. Some nice pieces by local artists.

We stumbled across this place after having lunch across the street (also amazing). There were so many cool little things inside. My husband added a handful of hot sauces to his collection. We found some neat little gifts for family and friends, and some reef-friendly sunblock :)

Great place for souvenirs, gifts, etc. Lots of really cool artists' creations. Also, nice tshirts (not just cotton). Risell helped us and she was great. The store is just as you turn from PR3 toward El Yunque National Forest.

Stopped in, was pleased to find homemade hot sauce, choc sauce, incense and even home-brew parcha infused rum! Noelia was very nice and informative and even helped us find a few off the path places to see. I appreciated how much of the items were made on site. Worth a stop in.
