An affordable and fashionable experience for both locals and those visiting.

From high fashion boutiques and affordable stores to gourmet eateries, a kids playground and ample parking, The Mall of San Juan truly has it all.

Begin your morning shopping spree with a hearty Italian style breakfast at Starbene Caffe with freshly baked breads, pastries and brewed coffee. Or sit back and relax and enjoy a cup of Puerto Rican coffee, sandwich and pastry at Cafeto. Mornings never tasted so good at The Mall of San Juan.

Now it’s time to shop ‘til you drop. Discover the latest collections from the world’s hottest luxury labels including Carolina Herrera Giuseppe Zanotti Design, Bulgari, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co., Versace, and Salvatore Ferragamo are but a few among the mall’s lavish lineup of tenants. This fashion precinct features a number of innovative amenities and conveniences made possible by a lineup of partners, including Wyndham hotels, which sponsors the shopping center’s visitors center and customer service desk and Visa, the preferred method of payment at the center’s shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

Visa offers the “Visa Club,” exclusive to The Mall of San Juan, with cardholder promotions, access to special events and premium discounts. JetBlue sponsors a variety of entertainment events, while Garage Europa Porsche sponsors valet parking services and car exhibits inside the sprawling mall.

Nevertheless, you have just scratched the surface.

As one of the most high-end shopping centers in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, this retail paradise with 80 stores also offers tourists a mix of tenants that includes popular yet affordable retailers like Zara, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Footaction, Loft, Pandora, Vans, Hollister, and Coach. So, there’s something for everybody’s budget!

And unique local retail concepts like jewelry shops Lido Jewelers and Bared Jewelers as well as fashion designers Gustavo Arango, and Luis Antonio.

You can cap off a long day of shopping with a lunch or dinner at The Mall of San Juan at Brio Tuscan Grille and Cantina Laredo that offer authentic Italian and Mexican fare, respectively, while Kona Grill — the only one in Puerto Rico — offers a menu of sushi, modern American entrees, creative cocktails, wine and beer.

But if sitting down for a hearty meal in a rock and roll environment is more up your alley then Burger & Beer Joint will hit the spot with its extensive menu of gourmet burgers, drinks and out-of-this-world desserts.

Or opt to go on an Italian culinary journey at the Il Nuovo Mercato food court, offering variety in each of its bottegas, such as pizza, pasta, breads, gelato, meats and seafood while savoring a natural infusion of fruits, beer or sparkling wine and cheese platter at the Prosecco Bar with stunning views of the Laguna San Jose.

Located across from the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and the Isla Verde hotel strip, The Mall of San Juan is a short ride away over the Teodoro Moscoso Bridge. It is about 20 minutes from the Vanderbilt Hotel in Condado and cruise ship piers in Old San Juan, and about half an hour from the St. Regis Bahia Beach hotel in Rio Grande, via Route 66 to the east.

This 650,000 square-foot shopping destination, which opened its doors in March 2015, is taxi and Uber-friendly, offers free valet parking service and even stores for free your luggage so you don’t have to drag them around while shopping.

The list of amenities for tourists also includes:

• “Passport to Shopping” — Out-of-town guests traveling from more than 50 miles away are encouraged to stop by the customer service desk to pick up their passport and learn more about the program’s special offers and discounts
• Shopping packages
• Children’s play area
• “Personal shopper”service in
