“Local art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Love the local art shops and always try to visit shops who have items for sale from local artists rather than purchasing touristy junk that can be found everywhere and anywhere. There are a lot of very nice, local-artist shops to visit here. Some really beautiful items, jewlery and artwork. I have purchased many items and love that every time I look at one of them, it brings back memories of a great trip to a beautiful island and carries me over until the next time I can visit.

“Easy shopping”

Interesting variety of stores, some of the stores that offered local arts were excellent.

The free trolley around Old San Juan was excellent.

“This is where to get your souvenirs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Looking for a place to buy your family and friends some souvenirs? Fortaleza is the street you're looking for. The entire street is lined with stores ranging from the tacky souvenir shop to some pretty swanky jewelry stores. If you're not in a buying mood, there's plenty of opportunity for window shopping too.
