Owner description: A bustling street full of shops and boutiques.
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Though it is currently under construction (as of late October), the street still offers lots of shops, eateries and nightlife/bars. You can still walk through the street, it's just a little cramped. All of the restaurants are still open such as Agua Viva, the Parrot Club, Dragon Fly just to mention a few.

There are also some good stores for souvenir shopping and a varied restaurant selection ranging from upscale to casual.

It's cool to do a walk-through and those that enjoy having different dining option will enjoy it.

The street is under construction, store are closed or abandoned and there is nothing to see or do. Not even worth a walk through.

Lots of fun shops and some of the islands best restaurants are on Fotaleza Street. Prices are pretty decent here and you will have a fun time. Avoid it at the times the cruise ships are in harbor as you will be crowded!

Check out all the cool bars and restaurants. The best time to go is happy hour. Get two for one drinks.

When we got to Old San Juan, we already had one destination in mind: Fortaleza Street. The number of shops will impress you. We went to a hat store to get custom-fitted Panama hats, then to lunch where locals eat to get delicious mofongos, then more shopping for Guayabera shirts and dinner at another popular locar pizza place.
