|About these ratings|
Outlet shoppers should come to Old San Juan prepared to let go of a few dollars. The city's Calle del Cristo is a haven of restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. But if you're only in San Juan for a port of call, some suggest you save your money for the stops in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands or St. Martin/St. Maarten (Calle del Cristo isn't a duty-free shopping district). Vacationers whose itinerary was limited to just the island of Puerto Rico were sufficiently pleased with the deals.
Calle del Cristo is also a great photo-taking opportunity. Snap a few of the San José Church, or swing by Pigeon Park to see the scores of birds waiting to be fed.
