Not impressed - prices are high, goods, while made in Puerto Rico, are on the tackier side, and selection is far more limited. To add insult to injury, they don't have bags and charge you an additional dollar (plus tax) for one of their shopping...More

Just slightly less tacky than the average tourist trap in Old San Juan, this shop was a great disappointment and also the clear reason why Puerto Rico is struggling to become the holiday destination it could be. The person in the shop followed us nonstop,...More
