Depending on what you are looking for, there are a few areas you’ll want to hit when it comes to shopping in Puerto Rico. Ashford Avenue in the exclusive Condado neighborhood is the place to go for designer shops. The street is lined with names like Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Ferragamo, making it San Juan’s ritziest quarter.
If you’re looking for a deal, head to one of the outlet malls. East of San Juan, Canovanas’ Belz Outlets has names like Polo, Ralph Lauren and Nike. On the other side of San Juan in Barceloneta, you’ll find Puerto Rico Premium Outlets, which have many of the same stores as Belz.
Plaza Las Americas in San Juan is the largest mall in the Caribbean, boasting just about every store you need. But we suggest going to Old San Juan for some authentic local souvenirs.
