Puerto Rico Shopping

  • Old San Juan

    San Juan Shopping

    Old San Juan is a place with lovely architecture, lots of history, and quite a few shops selling souvenirs. A lot of these are along Calle del Cristo or Fortaleza Street. I would say that in general, if you go further away from the cruise port, the souvenirs become a bit less kitschy, and you start seeing more art, artisan crafts, etc. Typical...

  • Plaza Las Americas

    San Juan Shopping

    Plaza Las Americas is San Juan's mall, located about 15-20 minutes from downtown and the cruise ship piers. It's a good thing, if you're homesick and craving to do some actual shopping. Plaza Las Americas boasts a lot of the American brands, as well as some local stores. The prices are typical for various things. I bought me my digital camera...

  • Three Kings arts

    One of the things that I noticed in Puerto Rico: a lot of the stores sell the Three Kings. Not sure why. It must be a religious thing. I also found that a lot of the residents collect the Three Kings.

  • Puerto Rican cigar

    There are cuban cigars in Puerto Rico but they are a bit expensive. I bought a Puerto Rican cigar and it costs about $7.00 a piece. PUerto Rican cigar. Expect to pay $7.00 or more

  • Puerto Rico Drug

    This is where you buy your gifts like coffee, t-shirts, refrigerator magnets. It's far cheaper here than those shops in Old San Juan.

  • Street vendor not very much`

    This old man I happened to meet on one of the streets in Old San Juan. He was selling some planteens and some green fruits neatly packed in a plastic bag. Since I was tired wandering around the streets of San Juan and it was hot and humid, I stopped by his tiny corner and asked him what was the name of the fruit. He told me but for some reason, the...

  • Factory Outlets Galor in Old San Juan

    Old San Juan is just covered in factory outlet stores for all kinds of designers and brand names. I wasn't really in a shopping mood when I was there, but the deals actually looked pretty decent. And it is definitely the place to see and be seen in the evenings. Everyone is out and about with their whole family strolling, window shopping, or just...

  • My favorite shop! All local artists...

    This store is simply fantastic. It is THE place to go for locally made treasures. I always like to buy my "souveniers" from local artists and this was my haven. Tom the owner, was so sweet, friendly and helpful. He greeted us at the door, served us coffee and told us all about the shop. Candles, lotions, and soaps are made right on the premises....

  • Sportshop near the Pier

    If you are on your way to take a catamaran tour and are in need of , sunscreen, a hat, motion sickness medication, or anything of that nature, there is a shop that sells all these things, amongst other boating necessities, right before you get to the docks. We got Lou a pair of sunglasses, and me some seasickness meds. (I had forgotten the ones I...

  • For a snack or a hammock, whatever

    Everyday we would pass countless stands while driving along RT3. We would see the hammock man and say "we need to stop for one of those". (Lou was in love with the hammock on our porch at the villa) Finally on our last day we stopped. The charming man sold us our yellow hammock for a measly $18. He asked for $20, but 18 was all the cash we had...

  • Largest Mall in the Caribbean

    Plaza de las Americas has everything. It's the largest mall in the Caribbean. Every taxi will be glad to go there, and there are many bus lines that arrive there. If you have alot of time and want to save a few dollars, take the bus. Whatever you want

  • Shopping in Puerto Rico

    There are alot of the same stores as here on the mainland. They have Sam's, Walmart, Kmart. The local grocery stores are an excellant place to sample some of the wonderful tastes of Puerto Rico. Prices are cheap, or same as the Mainland Plaintain chipsLocal breadLocal coffeeMango's (my favorite) Average if not cheaper prices as in United States...

  • Must go to mall in San Juan

    In this very big mall you can find everything, from a little gift to a car!! We live in Holland and we bought many clothes and shoes!! This depands if you have the wallet or your wife or girlfriend does!!!!

  • Vendor Shopping

    There are tons of little vendor shops dotting the beach landscape that have amazing souvenirs for you to take home. They are mostly all hand crafter and not 'Made in China' so they will have a genuine feel.I scored myself Peurto Rican Dominos and Mofongo Dishes.

  • I am looking for a specific item

    I am looking for a shop called: Made by Hand, I am not sure of the exact location. My cousin moved down there from the US, and she had a pair of pants, which she called them "diaper pants" some how they are put on like a diaper and tie in the front, and they are completly split up the side of the legs. If anyone knows of this place, could you...

  • Consejo de Compras

    Plaza Las Americas is the largest shopping mall in Puerto Rico, possibly in the whole of the Caribbean. At present, there are 300 stores selling everything imaginable. I was last there in January, 1991 and I'm sure many new stores have replaced the old and quite possibly the mall has expanded. All I bought when I was there was 76 postcards. Up...

  • Largest mall in Caribbean

    This is the largest mall in the Caribbean. I prefer buying locally hand-made items. They have one shop in the mall on the second floor (shown in picture) where different artists sell their items. In addition, around the corner there are usually artisans who set up stands also. I bought some beautiful nativity scenes. I also bought some...

  • La Plaza de Las Americas

    We spent a part of the day at la plaza de las americas, aka Mall of America. It was a two-story mall that had many shops. Many of the shops were much different from American shops. They had beautiful crystal stores, clothing stores, and home-made craft stores. If you're shopaholic and must go spend some money I suggest visiting here. The prices...
