Plaza Las Americas
Plaza Las Americas is the largest mall in the Caribbean, and is located in the Hato Rey district. Anchor stores include JC Penney, Macy's, Sears and a Borders books store. More than 300 stores can be found at the Plaza, frequented by both locals and visitors. Among the restaurants featured in the mall are the Ponderosa Steakhouse, Chili's, and La Terraza food court, which has over 40 eateries. There are also 22 movie screens here, showing the latest releases.
If you are going shopping here, make sure you do not do it on Sunday. This is the place that the city meets for their weekend entertainment. Craft tables crowd the middle of the mall walkways and it is next to impossible to move through the crowd. If you want a crowded, packed, atmosphere this is your place. If you are looking for a casual relaxing shopping experience it will only frustrate you as you try to get to a store then try to find a sales assistant to help you. Once you do that you get to stand in line for 20 minutes to a half hour to pay for it. If saving sales tax is worth it for you then this is your mall. If not go another day.
WELL DECORATED FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. TRAFFIC TO ENTER SHOPPING MALL WAS HARD AND WE VISITED EARLY IN THE MORNING (10:00 AM). WHEN TIME CAME FOR THE KIDS TO EAT WE COULD NOT FIND A HIGH/TODDLER CHAIR FOR MY INFANT CHILD. I ASKED ONE OF THE MAINTENANCE EMPLOYEES AND HE TOLD ME " WE DON'T USE THAT HERE". IT'S THE ONLY SHOPPING MALL WERE YOU DON'T FIND THESE TYPE OF SERVICES. WHEN I COME BACK TO PR WILL TRY OTHER SHOPPING PLACES WERE FACILITIES ARE FOR EVERYONE. DEFINETLY WILL NOT RETURN TO PLAZA.
BESIDES THAT I ENJOYED AND LOVED MY STAY IN PR.
I absolutely loved this mall. It was huge, it had a variety of very shee-shee stores and a variety of very affordable trendy shops. During our 9 day stay in Puerto Rico, my friend and I visited 3 times and found something new and exciting each time. A definite must see while in San Juan!
I am from Puerto Rico and everytime I go on vacation to PR i go, it was voted the biggest mall in the caribbean. Its 3 floors and is also huge. Nice fashionable clothes that you could probably only find in NYC. Have fun when you go and dont go rushing you'll be there for hours...
its a must go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The recklessness of all drivers make it a dangerous place to drive around. Locals are not driving they are racing and want to get there first.
Crossing at a red lights, overtaking with no view ahead is a usual occurence. Foreigners beware.
This is a huge shopping mall spreading out requiring stamina. Not for faint of heart. Noisy and crowded. Children run around in dizzy pace.
My wife and I have lived in Old San Juan for 3 years. We shop Old San Juan because it is opposite of the mall experience at las Americas. Old San Juan has quaint and upscale shops, great food and the 400 year old history of Old San Juan surrounds you. NOt massive chain stores.
We use this "Mall area" surrounding Las Americas for not frequent personal and business shopping that we can't find in Old San Juan. Particularly Border's Bookstore and other shops not in Old San Juan like Pearl Vision and Sprint.
Las Americas has problems. Too many people. The parking is nearly impossible during weekends Friday thru Sunday and especially holidays. Simply Avoiid Las Americas on Weekends and especially ANY holiday.
If you are in Old San Juan from a cruise ship--it will cost you $20 taxi each way..better to rent a car for the day at $35 and drive...its easy.
Shop downtown Old San Juan instead unless you need a oversized shopping mall fix.
