Anything you buy in Old San Juan is more expensive. To buy almost anything at cheaper price you should go to either calle Loiza, a little farther to Rio Piedras, both in San Juan, or to Canton Mall shopping center in Bayamon.

You will need directions on how to get there. It is easy, although.

Questions? Ask!

If you are not looking for Xmas ornaments made in China, check artisan fairs around the island.

For me it doesn't matter as much where they're made, just wanted to see if there is something different from typical mainland U.S. style ornaments.

I'll try to fit in shopping time outside of OSJ if I can. Thanks for the advice!

check the Reyes Magos (3 Kings) ornaments, they are sold almost anywhere and it is a strong christmas traditional image of Puerto Rico, Jan 6. is the Reyes Magos holiday and the peak christmas holiday , also check the musical instruments like Palitos, Guiro and Maracas.

this image gives you a good idea of what christmas is all about in Puerto Rico
