Plaza Las Americas

"At the Center of it All," Plaza Las Americas is the most popular mall in Puerto Rico. The shopping center originally opened in 1968 on 70 acres of land and has since undergone three separate renovations and expansions. Today, the mall encompasses 1.8 million square feet of area, and due to its central location remains busy serving tourists and locals alike.

There are more than 40 dining options available in the La Terraza Food Court, and a 13-screen movie theater will take care of all of your dining needs.
