It's a main street that can get backed up with traffic but there are tons of places to shop. We stayed at the Casa Blanca Hotel and it was walking distance to everything. You can't really get lost but it's nice if you do!

Fortaleza is the main shopping street in Old San Juan. It is about a block from the cruise ship piers and has most of the usual jewelry stores in addition to art galleries and tourist trinket shops. There are also a wide variety or restaurants...More

Long and narrow street in Old San Juan. Lot's of bars, souvenir shops, and restaurants. At the end is the governor's residence. Always crowded. Beware of the people trying to navigate such a narrow street in their cars.

If you only have a little time, head to Fortaleza Street. Lots of great places with fun souvenirs. For one stop shopping and very reasonable prices, try Fortaleza Souvenirs (300 Fortaleza Street). We also loved the Pirana Joe's for very fun souvenirs at 259 Fortaleza...More

Yes, we were there on a Friday morning and afternoon and everything was open, clean, safe and if you weren't looking for hurricane damage, you would've walked right past it.The tourist areas are just fine.

If I'm not too late, I found the best deal for the money with great food and service was Tijuana's, at Calle Marina which is in Old San Juan along the water.
