Shopping deals in san juan

What items are good deals in San Juan? What can I get for a lower price, and for better quality, in SJ than I would in NYC? Cigars? Rum? Panama hats? Anything? Nothing?

Rum is pretty much it. Everything else is about the same price as the mainland US, if not a little more due to freight.

What you can get are things you may not be able to get in NYC. Barlitto rum comes to mind. Some dominican cigars, Hatian wood carvings.

Paris, we understood the post, IMO, one may find good deals in shoes & clothes that either because they are seasonal items in US or because they are items not frequently imported to the US. Guayaberas, some PR rums not available in US or sold at exhorbitant prices by specialty online stores, as well as some clothes, shoes, sandals etc..
