    The Butterfly People: A Nice Souvenir Opportunity!

    by TexasDave Updated Apr 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This company builds wall hangings out of clear acrylic plastic whch hold beautiful arrangements of dried butterflies. The sizes range from boxes that hold 2-3 butterflies, up to large displays with several dozens. They are not cheap, but you can usually find some with reduced clearance prices to make it a little easier on the pocketbook. The boxes are sealed and the colors of the butterflies last indefinitely as long as you keep it out of direct sunlight.

    What to pay: From $30 up to the $1,000's, depending on the size.

    Walgreen's to the Rescue: For Small Souvenirs & Postcards....

    by starship Updated Feb 28, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in a nice building with beautiful wrought-iron, green painted balconies on the second level, Walgreen's Drug Store was actually the least likely of chain stores I thought we'd see in the heart of Old San Juan; but, it was also a welcome sight and it turned out to be a good shopping spot as well. As the thermometer climbed to 89 degrees, finding a spot for cold drinks wasn't exactly as easy as we thought it would be. Walgreen's on the corner of Plaza de Armas came into view just in time. It had all the products from home and then some. Service was friendly and helpful!

    What to buy: Not only were cold bottles of water, soda , snacks and other personal need items reasonable priced, but here you could find almost 2 aisles filled with small Puerto Rico souvernirs, postcards, t-shirts and the like also at reasonable prices (these are not necessarily items made in Puerto Rico by Puerto Ricans though if that is what you are looking for). If you need film, over-the-counter medications or personal items, this is the place for you!

    What to pay: About the same as in other drugstores on the US mainland.

    Don Collins Cigars: Coffee at a cigar shop?!

    by Jefie Written Feb 20, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm a huge coffee addict so one thing I like to do when I travel down south is to try the local coffee or even better: bring some back home! That's the main reason why we stopped by Don Collins Cigars in Old San Juan. This little shop located on Calle del Cristo (right next to the Ben and Jerry's) specializes in cigars, but they also sell Puerto Rican coffee. The young woman who helped us pick a bag to bring back home explained to us that the shop collaborates with different local cooperations in order to help them sell their products. She was really nice, and as the custom goes she took our picture to put it on the store's website. And as for us, now that we're back home in the snow, we can at least get a little taste of Puerto Rico in the morning before going to work!

    What to pay: We paid $10 for a 16 oz bag of coffee

    Del Sol: Color changing stuff

    by Ericasmurf99 Written Jul 5, 2008

    The cruise ship offered coupons for this place so we thought we would check it out. We both got color-changing clothes and the "free gift" was a color changing tote bag, which I gave to my mom as a souviner. :)

    Zapatería: Viejo San Juan

    by XanderDone Written Jun 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a regular shoe store that's got tons of shoes on discount. It is the most divine shoe store in the city, if I could only remember the exact name of the place. My friends and I were just wandering the streets and we just happened to run into it, and were blessed by the sales. Good quality shoes, very cheap and very chic. Just down the street from the Customshouse.

    What to buy: This is a big discount shoe store. You can also get bags and belts, but they're not as big in stock as the shoes are.

    What to pay: I spent $20 on a pair of shoes, but if you go crazy you can rack up the dollar signs.

  • Cheap Liquor

    by TIKI1999 Written Nov 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't get a chance to shop at an of the outside shops in San Juan. We did get to shop in the port shops and the liquor prices are extremely cheap and they are tax free. If you like wine or if you like hard liquor I'm sure you'll be impressed by the prices.

    Invasion of the superstores: Invasion of the superstores

    by virtualpatrick Written May 11, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With the help of US economic infusion, Pureto Rico has one of the richest economy of the Caribbean islands.

    With that said, scattered throughout the suburbs and major cities of Puerto Rico are the discount superstores such as Walmart and Sam's Club.

    While there seems to be a Starbucks in every major city in the US, Walgreens appears to be the Puerto Rican version for all your pharmaceutical needs.
