All the items at the Puerto Rican Art & Crafts store are made locally, are high quality, and are varying price points. You are bound to find the perfect souvenir to take home. They sell jewelry, rum, paintings, food items (such as rum cake, sauces, candies), unique magnets, and much more.

Tony owns the shop and he's great. He can tell you all about the art, where it came from, what it means, etc. We bought some Santos and he helped us pick out the right ones--we were looking for the saint of animals, the saint of travelers, and to even it out, he suggested the saint of people who are...

I was sent to this shop by my guesthouse host when I told her we were looking for authentic Santos (wooden statues of the saints with a background of religious worship that have been taken on by local artisans in modern days) and she did not lead us wrong. We ended up buying two santos for ourselves, one for a... More

I make a point to visit art co-ops and stops like this when visiting a city, and PR A & C did not disappoint. I was delighted by all the mediums that were available, and the quality of the work. I gravitated to the ceramics and jewelry on this trip, and I picked up several small pieces, including a beautiful... More

I went to this store after reading about shopping in Puerto Rico on the internet. It does not disappoint! It is full of treasures from local artists, something for everyone. The prices are very reasonable and I got some of my Christmas shopping done. The salespeople were very knowledgeable and helpful. They allow you to look without bugging you since... More

My wife and I have visited the Puerto Rican Arts & Crafts store the past two years that we visited Old San Juan. Both times we have found unique, high quality "souvenirs" that reflect the heritage and beauty of this historic city. This year when we visited O.S.J. we were joined by my wife's brother Michael and his wife Barbara.... More

I was strolling strolling thru san juan looking for a momento to take home. Came across this store and fall in love. It had the most beautiful items to purchase and made the selection process difficult since every object as prettier than the last. Will definitely return for more items in the future.

We buy 1 item from every country we go to. We prefer that it's a handmade local specialty. I do lots of research into local crafts before visiting anywhere. I read all over that this store was the place to go for PR crafts. Everything here was made locally and this was the only place in San Juan for handicrafts.... More

In my various visits to PR, I always make my pit stop here, and still feel that this is the best store in old San Juan. The merchandise is top-notch and they have an extremely helpful and professional staff. I also recently worked on a phone order with a customer by the name of Eldrith, and she was great in... More
